    Hi all,

    I've been using my phone's calendar A LOT more than I originally thought I would. All this time I have been using the PC Sync option instead of the xxxxx@gmail.com option when creating new events.

    How can I "translate" / sync the "PC Sync" calendar events to my google calendar? Been trying a bunch of stuff with no success.

    HELP ... PLEASE ... :)

    thanks
    Knight

    You can try to connect the phone to a computer and sync it to Outlook. Then export the calendar to CSV file and import that to Gmail.

    you can export a calendar on the device to a CSV file then import it back into another calendar. basically do exactly what you want all on the phone no PC needed

    If you are using the HTC calendar, don't you just go to settings>accounts & sync and then choose the Google account you want to sync? Thant is how I do it. It syncs my gmail, calendar and contacts.

    they are looking to combine calendars into 1 i think, not just display them on the same calendar.

    Ohh, I made the decision to use my works calendar as a base but enter in the information on Calendar Pad and have different color coded labels for work, home, events, etc.

    I am able to view my MSFT exchange mail/calendar/contacts from my phone through the remote webmail address. It is an extra step but I gave up on Google+MSFT making anything compatible.

    My wife has used the PC Sync calendar on her HTC Desire a ton. But now we want to move (copy/snyc) all those entries to Google Calendar so that she has one calendar for phone, ipad, and work PC.

    She (nor I) use outlook. Is there anyway to export or copy all the entries in PC Sync on the phone to her Google Calendar?

    From this point on she will select "user@email.com" instead of PC Sync. Same thing goes for the Contacts. We want to copy/move/sync all the contacts from the "phone" to Google Contacts so they are all in one place. I can't believe there is not a simple solution for this.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    My solution was to use a replacement calendar front app I like called Business Calendar Free. I remembered that, unlike the stock calendar app, it lets you change which calendar an appointment is assigned to when you edit the appointment. I had it display only my PC Sync calendar, and then I proceeded to edit each and every appointment to change the calendar to the Google account calendar. Then I hid the PC Sync calendar so that I wouldn't accidentally add new appointments to it.

    I tried Business Calendar but you have to move each event one by one and I had many to move :) So then I used an app called "Copy Calendar Events" that lets you copy or move a whole batch of events from one calendar to another - at once.

    Solved by a free app. I bought my new phone a few months ago and finally discovered that my new phone's call tracker app has been logging to a "PC Sync" calendar instead of my usual "me@gmail.com" calendar. I needed those entries on my "me@gmail.com" calendar, and I sure didn't want to individually rewrite each entry. Here's the five minute solution that it took me a few hours to find:
    1. Downloaded a free android app that exported the phone's PC Sync calendar to an "ical" file on my phone's SD card. "iCal Import / Export V.2.0" did the job perfectly & easily!
    https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=tk.drlue.icalimportexport
    2. Moved the "ical" file to my PC. I did this by emailing the file from my phone to my PC using Gmail. (Presumably this step could have been skipped if I were willing to do step 3 using the "desktop" version of Google calendar in my phone's browser.)
    3. On the desktop version of Google Calendar, imported the "ical" file. Went into calendar settings (by clicking the same place you click to create a new calendar). Chose the import option. Imported the "iCal" file into the existing "me@gmail" calendar. NB this process didn't remove any data from the "me@gmail" calendar, just added the PC Sync data as hoped. Was very easy and worked like a charm.

    I found a solution, it worked for me, so it may work for you as well. I had to use the app aCalendar. And then in the phone calendar app, be sure to select both the pc sync calendar and the calendar you want to change each event to. And now in aCalendar you can edit each individual each event and change the calendar to a new one

    For all you brainiacs out there responding without even understanding the issue at hand. The android calendar app has a calendar on it called PC Sync, which is a very misleading label. Its a calendar only on the phone app, so syncing phone and pc wont solve the issue of google calendar not recognizing the calendar, and in the android calendar app you cant change the calendar after an event has been created. Its really frustrating, but much of the issue is that the android calendar and google calendar apps dont get along very well. I cant seem to get changes i make to my calendar on my pc show up on the android app, so im sure i wont be using the android app any more.
