    I have a google email account, the email account syncs fine with my hero.

    However, with my calendar if I add an event on google it will download to my phone. Am I able to create an event on my phone that will update on my googlemail account calendar?

    Cheers for any help

    Yes...that is exactly how it works.

    Test it out. It is very fast. The android calendar functions are much more limited than the web based google calendar, but it works.

    When I do create an event on my phone how do I get it to sync with my online calendar? At the moment it doesn't, it is just one way.

    The update from web to phone is super fast!

    Sorted it out now, when making an event I had to select my Google account from the top rather than the default my calendar. Works an absolute treat now. This phone is seriously good, better functionality than the iPhone. Just needs to sort out the slight lag that I experience at times. OVER TO YOU HTC!!! Thanks for your help by the way

    This week I've had a new problem. I don't know if it relates to the 2.1 upgrade since it seemed fine for the first few days after I did it. But I've lost most of my calendar entries - not all, but most. I've tried refreshing, turning sync off and on again, nothing seems to work. The entries are all present and correct on my PC Google calendar, but just won't re-sync with my phone - which renders it largely useless. Any suggestions, anyone?

    There is no option to do that.

    Gemini Calendar does, though, and it syncs with Google calendar and has a much more powerful UI. I have been running it a couple of weeks.

    But boy, is Gemini ugly! Not an alternative, no matter how powerful the UI may be. I will come back as soon as Gemini has proper themes.

    Did someone file a feature request for a default calendar setting in the standard Android app?

    Is there any way to convert existing appointments on the default phone calendar to appear on google calendar? What is even the _point_ of having the separate phone calendar that can't sync?

    I just discovered that you can disable the standard phone calendar by pushing the menu button while in the calendar and then pressing "more" and then "calendars". This way your online google calendar will be the default one.

    So I've found out that the phone calendar can't be synced to my google calendar... Is there a way to move my current phone calendar events to my google calendar? I can't seem to find this option. I mean, even event by event. Thx!

    Help!! I've been unsuccessful at syncronizing my Android (Verizon) calendar to my desktop Google Calendar. I'm assurred that all my 'droid settings are correct, and that the problem lies with Google Calendar. I've been in all the Google Calendar settings, but nothng helps...my appointments with specific times on them never show up in Google.

    Hello,

    I found the solution somewhere, and didn't remember to post back here :/

    How:
    -Open up your calendar,
    -Go to 'Calendars' (where a list of your google calendars show up)
    -Uncheck the visibility of the calendar named 'Phone'
    -Make visible the calendar you want to sync with on your google account

    Then when you go to create an event in the calendar on your phone, it is created by default into the calendar that's with your google account that you just chose. I found that the phone calendar can't be synced with your google account.

    Hope this helps :)

    Hi
    My problem is that I can't get calendar events to go away - even though the only calendar I allow to show on my phone is the one from my Google email address. I can add and delete events on the online calendar, and this syncs with my phone fine. However a while ago I added a lot of events and then deleted the calendar. These events are gone from the online calendar but I can't get rid of them from my phone. I can delete them from my phone manually and they wont re-appear on sync but it would take too long to delete all of these events like that.

    Hi and thanks for the help... My problem is that I set up an iCal in google for "Trip it", to show my travel details. It was working the first few days I had my EVO, but now only the google calendar shows up. How do I get it to show both the google account calendar and the iCal (Trip it calendar)? And if they won't both show, how do I just show the iCal data?

    Hope this made sense. BTW, I also use the Notes Traveler calendar for my work calendar stuff (syncs with Lotus Notes). Not sure this has any impact....

    Thanks for your help!

    I have a Verizon HTC Droid Incredible, Froyo v2.2 - this is the one that worked for me. After going Calendar...Menu...More...Calendars... I then deselected the PC Sync option, leaving only my Gmail associated account. Then when I entered an event on the phone, it showed up in my Google Calender as seen on my computer. There are so many slight variations on what one sees on different phones, different Android revisions, I thought I'd give specific info as to what I saw on mine, in case it helps another dinc user.

    Hi I have just had my Legend returned from Vodafone. I think it has has a software up date.
    My problem is that the calendar does no longer sync with my on-line Google calendar.

    If I enter an event on the phone it appears on my PC and I can amend it then it syncs, but all further and past dates are not syncing.

    Also My mail account is not syncing property
