    I am not sure if I missed a setting update or something changed and I didn't realize.

    I just realized this weekend that my Google calendar is not synch to my HTC Hero. While contacts and gmail are synching fine. I have not installed any apps recently and have tried to force a manual synch without success. Also, I have also taken the battery out in hopes a reset would solve it.

    My question is this. Which side should I be looking at? The google web site side or my phone?

    Thank you.

    Try going into Settings, then Accounts & Sync and make sure that calendar is checked off. That is the only thing that I can think of that would affect this.

    I hope that helps. Good luck.

    I have the exact same problem with my Hero. I want to root but since my phone is my PDA too, I needed to make sure my phone calendar was replicated in Google. See my thread "Before Rooting - How Do I Back Up My Calendar?" in the root section.

    LBP is correct on the setting; test it and then see if it works both ways -- from Google to phone and phone to Google. Then see if your historical entries sync up; mine did not.

    Another forum suggested going to: Settings>Applications>Manage Applications>Calendar and then clear data as a solution before trying a re-syncing. I did not try that because I was not sure it would delete all my historical data..............

    First, I would like to apologize for posting in the wrong sub-forum.

    Well, it appears that clearing the data worked. It don't how or why. But it did.
