Default Using calendar without syncing?

I have a customer that wants to know is it possible to use the calendar on the phone without having to sync it up with any other source. She doesn't have gmail and does not use outlook, she just simply wants to be able to use the calendar and mark events and notes on days for reminders but when she opens up calendar it tell her that the calendar is not synced up and will not work properly, or something like that.

Is syncing with Google turned off? I have not used the calendar without syncing enabled, but I would think that if syncing is on and there is no google calendar to sync with you would get an error.

You can disable calendar sync with Google and still use the calendar. I don't know how you would back up the info that way though.

Since you have to have gmail to use the phone, why not let it back up the appointments? Plus if she deletes the appointment in the phone, it will delete off gmail as well.

Actually, you do not have to use gmail to use the phone. You just have to have a google login to use the market. Google mail, calendar and contacts are all optional.

Hi,

I own an android, but I bought a super-cheap cellular package whereby I have no internet access. And I don't want it either. I just want to talk and text.

Meanwhile, I also want to use the calendar. But I can't use it without having an internet access. That seems silly to me. Why does my phone need to talk to the internet just to let me use a calendar?

How can I get the phone to let me make calendar entries without the internet?


::ETA::

It's not a Motorola, it's a Samsung Moment.
