Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help lreinstein 3/25/09 8:40 AM
I have been very happy with the google calendar sync to my iPhone.  I followed all the direction and was able to successfully sync 5 different google calendars to my iPhone.  It worked great.
 
And then unfortunately I needed to swap in my old iPhone for a new one (under warranty, both 3G).   I did the backup and restore properly.
 
Now, although the sync does work to my primary google calendar,  I DO NOT SEE ANY OF MY OTHER CALENDARS ON MY IPHONE!.   I have tried several things, including going back to the m.google.com/sync site in safari on my iphone, and reselected the calendars and "saved" .... still no luck.  I even deleted the calendar account on the iPhone and did the microsoft exchange setup instructions per the google instructions.  Still nothing.
 
PLEASE HELP.

I had this issue and changing the settings by going through safari to m.google.com/sync fixed the problem for me!
 
Google needs to make these options more clear in the setup process...

Rustle, I tried this & it didn't work.  Does anyone else have any ideas?

His solution didn't work for me either.
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help felixfuchs 4/2/09 12:49 PM
same here, only one calendar would sync
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help dillon79 4/6/09 6:05 AM
Rustle: Thanks - that solved the trick! After setting up the sync for my domain it gave me the option to add additional calendars. Thanks for your help!

I went to m.google.com/sync but got a "Device not supported" note. Am running an iPhone with the latest firmware (2.2.1)

On the iphone I use the Microsoft Exchange Active Sync option to see my gmail calendars without going into a web browser.
I too had trouble all of a sudden with not being able to see any but my main account calendar.
I did as rustle said and typed in exactly: http://m.google.com/sync (def need to add the last word sync there) into the safari iphone browser and from there easily navigated to a screen that allowed me to check box each one of the calendars i wanted to see displayed on the exchange app.  It worked perfectly with a nice added feature where entries from different calendars are marked with different colored dots.  So, bit of confusion, and one really bad day at work thinking I only had three meetings schedules, not THIRTEEN!  But all's well that ends well.  Hope this helps.

Hey everyone, got the problem "Device not supported" fixed... visit http://m.google.com/sync as mentioned...then change your language profile into english (us). For my case "german" did not work. Now everything is working fine and I am seeing my calendars.
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help nitesher 4/26/09 7:35 AM
yes, it works great now
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help xelios 5/12/09 5:15 AM
I would like to tell you MUST set the language to ENGLISH when you visit the page http://m.google.com/sync in order to get access to the options.

Changing the language did the trick!

rustle got it right,and i like to add a step or detail.here it is.
 
1)sign off everywhere like pc/mac desktop,just the iphone is sign on to gmail/calanders(very important)
2)dont put rustle link in iphone safari's search,put it in the address bar directly http://m.google.com/sync   (from iphone)
3)bookmark it into your iphone (just in case you got to go back again)
4)if you see multiple devices, do it to all of them
5)make sure to hit save
6)sign out then check iphone calander
7)if it didnt work, try prev steps but only click on your default calander and save, come out and check, then do it again.this time do it with default and shared and save
 
it tricky but its funny like that. thanks all .i hope this helps
 
p.s. if it still dont work. erase microsoft exchange in iphone setting and start from scratch.start here    http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=138740

I did as noted by klev  on 4/16/09 and was is still not showing up.  I then tried adding an event in that calendar and everything came in. 
I had the same issue with my contacts.   I just added a test user and it kind of forced the sync.
Hope this helps.
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help triforcexp 12/3/09 7:11 AM
Ok, I fixed by the following steps:

- Go to safari
- open m.google.com/sync
- change the language to english (us) if you have any other.
- log in with your google account
- click on your device on the list
- click save.

Google should automatically check the calendars to sync if they are less than 25 instead of make me do all these steps......

AWESOME!!!! THIS ANSWER WORKED FOR ME TOO!! THANK YOU RUSTLE!
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help j7kohl 2/16/11 2:45 PM
DAVE01568 makes a good point--you have to sign out of the m.google.com/sync page before the new calendars will show up. At least, I did, after scratching my head for 10 minutes.

I try to sync it by going to m.google.com/sync on my iPod Touch but it says I need to log in from my computer and make a backup of my personal data. When I log in through my computer I see nothing about backing up the data. I never get to a screen where it has devices to check off. It only syncs one of my calenders at the moment
Re: Multiple Google Calendar sync to my iPhone: it stopped working. Please help ecg232 9/23/11 9:56 PM
This did not work for me and I triple checked, signed out on safari and on my macbook -- everything to a T, even tried another google calendar account for all settings and that did not work either.

It used to work perfectly.  The one thing I notice that no one has mentioned is that when I go in to choose which calendars I want to sync to my iPhone, then log out, and they do not show up on my phone -- but they DO show up on my laptop browser next time I log in to Google Calendar, all of the sub=calendars are chosen (what I wanted on phone) - whereas I normally ONLY look at one (my primary) calendar on the browser, I only check the others for reference.

This would seem to point to the possiblility that http://m.google.com/sync is not letting me sync my iPhone calendar choices, just my main laptop browser shown-calendar choices. I clicked them off so only my primary was visible, logged out, went back and did it all over again and guess what? same same.

I'm wondering if Google had some kind of programming hiccup - but then that would not explain that the solution above DOES appear to be working for some people and not others.  Am I missing something here?   Any ideas...? I'm anxious to hear!  As a workaround I have a direct link to google calendar on my phone, but it is nowhere as nice as having the calendar choices on the native calendar app!

thanks

Hi ecg,

Not sure what exactly is happening for you, but it seemed to work fine for me.  There are two basic steps:

1.  Set up gmail as a Microsoft Exchange account in Mail (http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?answer=138740&topic=14252  -- I opened this on my laptop)

2.  Sign into http://m.google.com/sync on your iPhone.  You should see your iPhone listed at the top of the page, under "Manage Devices".  If you click on the little arrow, you should see a list of all your calendars to select.  After submitting this, it may take a few moments for the new calendars to show up under "Calendars" in Calendar, but they should eventually.

Worked fine for me, although I do think I had to sign out and back in before I saw the iPhone listed in step #2.

hello @computerbassist,

I had it set up exactly as you typed out in 1 and 2 above - and it worked fine for over a year.
Then at some point this year it just stopped. Now it will only show my primary calendar and all the others will not show up, even though I go in to the http://m.google.com/sync page and have all the calendars I want to see, checked. I log out and they are still not in my iphone's calendar app, where they used to be.  Then on my computer next time I go to google calendar, the view is set to show all those calendars I clicked to see on the phone (which I never have all clicked on on my laptop).   It's almost as if there was a clash between the regular google cal and the mobile version or something.  Sigh.

I found a work around here:
http://whalertly.com/wordpress/2010/06/25/how-to-sync-your-google-calendar-and-your-iphone/
However this alternate set up does not work for my colleague, who does not have a gmail account, only a google calendar via his (other than google domain email). I can create a gmail acct for him to sync his regular account to, and perhaps that will work, but it's just strange because this original configuration worked flawlessly for so long.
