    I have the moment and love the phone but i really do not like the default calendar app that comes with it. I am wondering what is the best app to download from the market? I live on a budget so i am looking for a free one. Any suggestions????

    Cool, someone from my area finally! My favorite is S2 Calendar widget. It's free.

    What kind of Calendars are you looking to sync with? Exchange, Live Calendar, Google Calendar?

    It is possible to load other remote calendars within Google Calendar, and then sync it to your phone using the Google Calendar app.

    I'm personally looking for a Outlook calender to sync with my phone. I have CompainionLink USB Synchronize right now, but that just pulled my contacts over, not my calender.

    So I'm guessing this is just your local Calendar found in Outlook, and not a Microsoft Exchange account (for some place like Work)?

    If that is the case, let me recommend this link to you:
    http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=98563

    It shows you how to sync your local outlook calendar to google calendar.

    I know that's not quite what you were asking, but it's a way to keep from having multiple calendar apps installed (since google can't be removed easily).

    i upgraded to the moment from the instinct. i am use to the calendar that the instinct used which allowed me to look at a month's view and see items that i had scheduled for that day. the moment's calendar just has a dot which says that something is scheduled for that day. at work, i use microsoft outlook but i have not yet figured out how to link my phone to my work email and calendar. i just want a calendar that will show details scheduled for each day. any ideas???

    That link for Google sync worked great. When I look at my calander now it shows a bar saying I have something scheduled and I just select it and it tells me what it is.

    I also sync my outlook calendar with google using this app; just make sure you set the sync frequency (1 hour, 2 hour, etc) to a timeframe that works for you. I had it set to synch up every 4 hours but then I realized I didn't keep my laptop on that long so it wasn't synching--after a quick change I was good to go.

    What about sending meetings with the calendar on the Moment? I can create an event, but I can't add attendees.... I can create an event on a shared calendar (like my wife's) using the Moment because I had added it as a shared calendar in Google Calendar on the web, but then it's not on my calendar and she doesn't receive a notification.

    Seems pretty basic - even Windows Mobile Outlook can do it.... Haven't seen anyone mention this problem - am I the only who wants to create meetings using my Moment?
