    Hi,
    I have 2 gmail accounts and I'm trying to sync their calendars. The first one that I entered during my first boot works great, but I realized that my private phone is synced with the other a/c. When I go to settings and enter the different a/c only one of them has Sync Calendar as an option while the other one only has sync contacts and Gmail. Any idea what shall I do to get the second one to sync the Calendar as well? :thinking: Thanks for your help.

    I have successfully synced my wife's calendar. I assume you have sent the invitation to share access on both accounts. For some reason nothing updated until I turned the phones on and off again. I couldn't figure out how to force a re-sync, but then again I'm new to these type of phones.

    The calendar can only be synced using the account initially used to setup the phone.

    as has been said, the calendar can only be synced with one gmail account, and it's by default the one that the phone is registered to.

    What a lot of people do is invite the one calendar to be a part of the "main" calendar, that way both entries show up. It's a lame fix, but unfortunately, for now, that's all there is.


    you DO have the option of re-registering your phone to the other gmail account if you'd prefer to have that calendar---you can do so with a factory reset. I do however, believe, any apps you downloaded will no longer exist, since they belong to the other gmail acct.



    Also, since when it "a/c" an abbreviation for "account"?? I thought you were talking about air conditioning at first :D

    Hi guys,
    thanks a lot for the info. I'm gonna have to invite the other calendar and sync them in that way :)

    TheSultan => The term a/c is used also in banking for accounts (or shall I say its used in the UK where I spent many years :) )
    Also yes, when you do a hard reset, you do loose all the apps and its just a hassle to reinstall them as I did that once. Whatever the fix is, its good to me as long as it works :) .
