    I create a Google calendar entry with a start and end time and when the calendar on the Samsung Charge is synced it does not show up in the correct time slot. It shows as the first entry before 8am. The other thing I noticed is that these entries do not have the g indicating it originated or synced from a Google calendar. I can update from the Samsung to Google and it works fine.
    I tried clearing the data from the Charge and it didn't help. Any clues?

    I'm having the same problem. When i add events either on the google calendar and sync or directly on the phone, they show up in the list view correctly but not on the calendar or widget correctly. The events show thw next day at 11am. This only happens for new events. The problem began yesterday and since then i've not been able to uae the calendar.

    Did you ever fond a solution?

    I found a solution that I hope i don't have to repeat too often.

    1. go into settings, applications, manage applications:
    Calendar
    Calendar Storage

    Clear data

    2. Sync calendar with Google Calendar.

    Calendar items appear correctly as expected.

    I tried your solution and it did put the correct times for the events that were on the calendar previously. Then I added a new event to my iCal (MAC) on my desktop but it didn't put the time on my phone. It does put the right time in Google Calendar. If I enter the event directly into Google it shows the correct time on my phone (which didn't work before). So it is hard to see where the problem exists when you break it down.

    Sync tests:
    test1: Enter on iCal sync to Google (yes) sync to Phone (syncs event, no times)
    test2: Enter directly to Google and sync to Phone (yes)
    test3: Enter to Phone sync to to Google to iCal (yes)

    test2 was not working prior to clearing calendar data on the phone.

    Thanks for your feedback

    Since entering the event on the phone will get the event into google and ical, I'd go that route. Im not sure why you cant sync ical to phone. Perhaps ical ads formatting to events that the phone doesnt understand
