Are you actually using 127.0.0.1..? Because that won't work unless you
have some how managed to install davical and a webserver on your iphone..
The iphone can find your contacts without any tricks, the fact that it chopped
off the stuff on the end should be okay, I think it actually does save the full
path but then doesn't display it for some reason..
For carddav you shouldn't need the full path either, just http://web.server/caldav.php/
should be enough for it to find your contacts based on the username you enter.
I have a number of iphones with various ios versions using carddav with davical
without any tricks or hacks to get them working. There IS a problem with very
large contact lists, but that's a separate issue...
