    I have a droid and I am enjoying it but I cannot figure out how to use the calendar. When I open the calendar icon I get to the calendar and I can type new but it just tells me I dont have a calendar yet and I cannot enter. What am I doing wrong????? Thanks much Dave

    are you signed in to your Google account

    settings > accounts & sync > manage accounts

    AND you need to tell the Calendar what Google Calendars to sync with

    I hope I'm not being too basic here, but do you already have a google calendar that you use in your browser?

    I think you have to first create one in your browser. THEN from the Droid Calendar icon, hit Menu >More >Calendars & look for the name of the Calendar you created in your Browser. If you see the Calendar but do not see the words 'synced, visible', then tap the Calendar & that should activate it to show up on your phone.
