Hello,

I think i have changed by mistake my iphone definitions and i'm completely lost.

Now when i go to my iphone contacts, if i click back it appears:

- Contacts
- From my Mac
- myemail@me.com

(yes i have an mobile me account)

Why i have so many options?

I just wanted to appear my mobile me contacts, so i have the same thing on my iphone and mac agenda.

Do you know how can i reverse this and place just mobile me contacts in all my devices?
QUOTE Thanks

Connect your phone to your Mac, open iTunes, highlight your iPhone, go to the Info tab - uncheck 'Sync Address Book contacts'.

When you have that checked and using MobileMe, you are essentially telling it to sync the same contact list twice. Just use MobileMe syncing. That will keep your iPhone and your Mac contact list in sync.

Did you sync again with that box unchecked in iTunes?

If you already synced the contacts from your Mac, you need to sync again with that box unchecked to remove them from your phone.

I had exactly the same issue and this is all I did just a couple of weeks ago to remove the 'From my Mac' contacts.

Perhaps try checking the box, sync, then uncheck it and sync again.
