    So I added a few calendars to google calendar on my PC, and my calendar is not syncing/updating on my Incredible.

    I've already tried clearing the data in the Calendar application, and manually syncing them.

    I'm also using Pure Calendar, if it matters, and have the update frequency set to every 30 minutes, and have already manually refreshed that as well.

    Ok so I think I figured out the problem. It's that for some reason, any calendars in google calendar that are in html format, won't sync to the phone. I just added the calendars for my favorite sports teams in google calendar, and they aren't syncing.

    Is there any way to rectify this?

    This seems to have happened last Wednesday or Thursday. I had the San Francisco Giants calendar added via URL to my Google calendar (so that I could see game times, pitching matchups, television/radio channel, etc.) and all of a sudden it disappeared last week. No matter how many times I add this calendar now, Google will not push it to my iCal or my Droid Incredible.

    If anyone knows what's going on, please update us!

    For some reason the calendars for sports teams are only available in html format and not xml or ical. I'm not sure if that's what the issue is, but is that different than it used to be?

    I'm having the same problem with events I entered via Google calendar not showing up on phone. This is a major flaw. This is a very basic function of the phone, I'm pretty annoyed at this.

    This is true, but I'm not talking about the "Other Interesting Calendars" option that Google has. It would be great if those worked though, because that would ALSO solve my problem (although the Google one lacks probable pitching matchups).

    The URL for the calendar is here: http://mlb.mlb.com/soa/ical/schedule.ics?team_id=137&season=2010

    When I try to add it to my Google Calendar, it only provides SOME past dates. It has done this on multiple computers and multiple google accounts (so I know it's not just mine). This is a problem using the calendar provided by MLB, but it works in Apple iCal and Microsoft Outlook, but not in Google Calendar--but it had worked up until the middle of last week.

    Yeah I just tried it as well and I'm having the same issue. It doesn't show any upcoming games, and it only shows some past games.

    This is infuriating. The schedules you can add from within google calendar's "Browse Interesting Calendars" doesn't sync with the phone, and none of the ical schedules are working in google calendar....

    For anyone that's still interested, I found out what the problem is.

    From the Google Calendar help (non-mobile version):
    "Keep in mind that it's not possible to sync sports calendars with other calendar applications at this time."

    The only solution is to import the schedule (via excel, or another file format). It's not available as a subscription right now, though.

    The main theory on the google help forums was that there was a licensing issue. ALL of the sports calendars stopped syncing a few weeks ago.

    This stinks. It's not syncing NFL Schedules either.

    Anyone have other ideas, besides manually entering them in?

    I have a problem with mine not wanting to sync from my phone my calendar. Events I enter on my phone are for my Google account calendar and they don't sync. I've tried everything but nothing seems to work. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it!
