    Syncing with google calendar
    I have a Macbook with iCal configured to match my Google calendar account. The two sync together with no problem. I tried setting up my HTC Desire to sync with my Google account which should give me three way sync but I get the following problem:

    I open Calendar on my phone, I try to add an event, a message appears saying: YOU HAVE NO CALENDARS. Ont the settings side, if I hit MENU then MORE and I choose CALENDARS I can't see my Google account. If I hit SETTINGS there is nothing to add my Google account. If I go to the ACCOUNTS & SYNC settings, I see my Google account, but when I hit my account, the data synchronization theme only shows SYNC CONTACTS and SYNC GMAIL, there is no SYNC GOOLGLE CALENDAR (is this normal).

    I had Syncmate installed on my macbook and had it configured on my Desire, but it didn't sync the calendar either so I deleted it from my accounts. Could this be causing my problem or does anyone know what I'm doing wrong?

    I had this issue with my wife's Desire when we got it last week, there was no sync calendar option in the sync settings.

    I did some googling on the subject and some people fix it by adding a second google account into sync which gave them the option to sync calendar, which then in turn made the option on the original google account miraculously appear. This didnt work for me though and the only other suggestion was a complete phone reset, which I did and it worked for me so now have that option, but obviously less hassle to do when it's brand new and I'd only spent about an hour on it configuring other stuff.
