    Hi, Do you mean directly?

    If not you could sync both your phone and thunderbird to your google account. That should do it...

    Hi,

    Yes, directly. If I can use my default Thunderbird Calendar (not Gcal account). Zimbra (desktop) does recognize my calendar events. My contacts uses my company account for events (SOP) and invitation.

    I'm already using "Provider for Google Calendar" and "Lightning" add-ons to write to GCal. But the default calendar doesn't reflect on my Gcal. I have to create the event on Gcal to reflect on my Android phone.

    Thanks.

    If you don't want to synchronize through Google and want a direct connection between your Android device and your PC, you may use BirdieSync. You can either connect with USB or a Wi-Fi or cellular connection. Then you'll be able to easily synchronize your contacts and your events on your Android device, without needing to store them in your Google account. Your local address books and calendars in Thunderbird/Lightning/Sunbird can be synchronized. So your data will be only present on your Android device and in Thunderbird/Lightning/Sunbird.

    Google 'MyPhonerExplorer'. I use it for Outlook to phone sync'ing but it also works with T'Bird.

    Thanks for your reply. I'm using Outlook now. Fortunately there's a free calendar sync.

    Try this addon for Thunderbird called Provider for Google. It works with another addon called Lighting. I can update the calendar in Thunderbird and when I switch on my Android device its on the calendar. I can add or update an event on the Android device and gets updated in Thunderbird.
    Works very well.
     
  8. Regarding offline sync: in TB 78+ (2021) addons / myphoneexplorer etc. don't work anymore - i just found a solution to quickly do a "1-way-offline-sync " (from TB to Android while overwriting Android entries) via USB:
    1. connect android phone to USB - open externalSD / folder..
    2. in TB address book - export .vcf file to desktop and in TB calendar export your calendar file “xxx.cal”
    3. copy both files to phone folder and
    4. on phone
    - open .cal file with calendar app => imports (and overwrites) all calendar items
    - open .vcf file with android app “VCF file contact import” and “save in contacts” (overwrites)
    Its a shame there is no offline sync feature (with android) in TB - should be a basic feature these days...
