    Does that happen if you try another calendar application?
    it might help to clear Calendar cache.

    Hang on....

    If I add a new event, that seems to work as always.

    On the PC it seems as though I don't have ownership of the event anymore as some of the options are fixed. Looks like it's more a Gmail thing than a Desire. :thinking:

    I wonder if it's to do with Googlemail accounts becoming Gmail in the UK? I've not bohtered swapping mine out.

    ps - Thanks for the reply, but I think this latest find rules out the calendar app. (I think?)

    Anyone else got the same issue?

    pps - I can also add an event from the PC which works as expected on the phone. It just seems all the old events have been changed in some way.

    Got the same problem here today. Anything I put in the calender from the phone is ok, anything I add from the PC is OK, but all previously entered appointments are not available for edit from the phone.

    Also noticed the appointment colour had changed on both phone and PC. Gone to a darker blue.

    Any help much appreciated.

    I never really got to the bottom of this. Not the biggest issue in world though I guess. Just means having to to re-enter some of the calendar events so you can control them.

    It is definitely something to do with googlemail/gmail. The email reminders that come through for events say something about the calendar being my *****@googlemail.com, but the event on the calendar is created by my *****@gmail.com.

    I get the same thing, but when I log into the gmail instead of googlemail equivalent, I still cannot edit future appointments. Not unworkable, but it does affect over a hundred future appointments. Hope it does not interfere with the account summary software I wrote.
