How to fix up broken address book sync

For some unknown reason my address book (Snow Leopard) lost its synchronisation with my iPhone. Firstly it stopped updating things, and then it got to the point where I lost all the contacts off my iPhone (thankfully I had them backed up) and it would no longer sync between my iPhone and iPod and Mac computer.

I talked with Apple, they couldn’t help. I spend over and hour with the mobileme chat line, and subsequent e-mails and in the end I gave up.

This week I came across this great article which fixed everything! If you’re having issues with Apple address book definitely give this a try.

Here’s how to get it going… and after some comments I also added a version for the samsung G600 mobile phone.
There’s also a version for Optus Bird phones here.
