Samsung Galaxy S2 doesn't sync with Google Calendar MisterCharley 9/1/11 11:40 AM

My Samsung Galaxy S2 doesn't sync with my Google Calendar. The contacts, mail and G+ notifications all work fine but when the sync gets to the calendar the "syncing" image (white circle with two arrows rotating)  pauses, tries again and nothing syncs.

This means that I can't select my Google Calendar to show up in my calendars, but for some reason the public holiday listings loads up.

Anyone experienced this or found a fix?

Thanks

Device: Samsung Galaxy S2 - GT-I9100
Carrier: O2
Country / Language: UK/English
OS / Browser / build number (if applicable): Gingerbread.XWKDD Android version 2.3.3

whenever I. enter any calendar entered, I get a warning that keis does not duncan the calendar with Google calendar. It suggested I will use 'my calendar', I do not know what they mean by that.

Having the same problem and after a bit of digging around, I came across this that may help:


I haven't tried it yet but will post again when I get round to it

I finally solved this problem by:
1. going to settings\application\manage applications\ switch to all tab\calendar and pressing clear data
2. going to settings\accounts and sync and syncing the account again

The second step will go exactly as MisterCharley described 'the "syncing" image (white circle with two arrows rotating)  pauses, tries again' but if you allow for enough time ( 3 minutes in my case ) it finally syncs the calendar.

Hope this helps.

This makes it sync thank god. I hope I don't have to do it all the time to keep it synced though. I'll post an update if it goes out of sync again (will be very annoyed).

I had same problem. There are two different calendars in Samsung Galaxy S2, one is named "My calendar" and another one is from google, named after your google account. You have to choose which one to use when making a new note. Only calendar from google can sync with google calendar. Hope it was usefull.

Question to sfilo:  if I hit "clear data", will all of my appointments disappear?  I don't have backup on my Google account in my laptop right now, so I'm nervous about losing my appoinments.

Bednarow, your a genius! I hadn't even thought about the two different calendars. Changed my entries to the "google" calendar on the phone instead of My Calendar, sinced again and there they were in the Google Calendar on the pc. Thanks heaps.

Does anyone know if my Yahoo calendar can be synced?  I tried replicating what you all had to say here but it still did not sync my Yahoo calendar.

Had this problem. What I did was - backed up all my data on google and reset the phone to factory settings and started all over again!!!

I know it's been a while since you posted this, but I found a solution to the problem which may, at the very least, be useful to others.

From the home screen, press the Menu button and go to Settings > Accounts and Sync. Find the Gmail account associated with the calendar you want to sync, select it, and press "Delete Account". This will remove the account - and all synchronized data associated with it - from your device.

Now, go back to Accounts and Sync and select "Add Account". Select "Google", and then "Existing". Now enter the username and password for the Gmail account associated with the calendar you want to sync. Continue on to the next screen, and you will be signed into your account. You may now choose what you wish to sync - make sure "Calendars" is selected.

Once this is complete, go to your calendar application. Your calendar may already have synced, but if not, press the Menu button and go to Settings > Calendar sync. Choose the account you wish to sync and then press "Sync Calendar", or press "Sync all". Your calendars should now sync.

If your calendar is still not visible, make sure it's enabled in the calendar view. To do this, open your calendar app, press the Menu button and go to Settings > Calendars. Here you can choose which calendars you wish to make visible. Select the calendar you wish to view, and it should show up on your calendar :)

I tried this, but get a message that the phone won't delete the gmail account without a factory reset because other programs rely onthe gmail account.

My main problem is pushing the my calendar info to the google calendar.  

Thanks!
