  1. Nice! Removed the abcddb file and Messages came back! Awesome. Now, the big question is how do you figure out all this stuff??? I mean in a million years, I would never decide to select that file… Right? So how did you discover this? Noting the date of the post, I’m guessing you’ve got deep experience with MacOS betas etc? But still… HOW??? 🙂

  2. How do you go about trying this if when you go to finder and enter in the pathname: ~/Library and nothing comes up at all? 😭

  3. Wow, moving the AddressBook-v22.abcddb file to desktop just saved me. I had reinstalled Monterrey and tried everything else in the book.

    I don’t know what in the world moving that file just did, but it saved me. Thank you for this article!!!

  4. The various suggestions are great and I have done them several times and still experience the same issues. My MacBook Pro doesn’t stay in sync with my iPhone or iPad while using messenger. This issue was only experienced after the latest OS Monterey was installed so maybe it is time for Apple to come out with some fixes to restore the features. One of the reasons I like Apple is because they all talk together through iCloud.
