If you’ve ever restored your Address Book from a backup, and found that your contact database would no longer sync with .Mac and your Palm OS device, here’s how to fix it. I discovered this after about two full days of working through the combinatorics of deleting, adding, backing up, restoring, and syncing.
- In AddressBook, Export all your contacts to a vCard file.
- Delete all your AddressBook contacts. Delete all your contacts on .Mac and your Palm device, as well.
- Import your contact data from the exported vCard file.
- Sync, et voila.
