    Calendar Not Syncing With Google

    Ravenwing

      I'm having an issue with my new Droid Charge not syncing appropriately with my Google calendar.  I've tried clearing the data through Menu > Applications, but when it syncs again it appears to be pulling old data that no longer appears on my Google calendar. There's no data in Cache. 

       

      In addition, I'm also getting error messages through the calendar that said the process has stopped unexpectedly and I have to do a force close.

       

      I even tried unchecking the my calendar option under calendar settings, but it still pulls old data.

       

      I would welcome any suggestions from anyone who solved this problem. Thanks.

          Dear Ravenwing,

           

          Let's start with some obvious questions:

           

          1.  Do you have more than one Google Account?
          2.  Is the Google account you set up in the phone the right one?
          3.  Have you tried a hard reset of the phone?
          4.  Have you tried to delete and re-establish the Google account you want?

          I am not aware of any settings in the phone that you have missed, that would restrict the sync to a date range, e.g.

           

          Good luck!

            Hi-

             

            To answer your questions:

             

            Do you have more than one Google Account?- Nope, just one

             

            Is the Google account you set up in the phone the right one?- Yes

             

            Have you tried a hard reset of the phone?- Yes

             

            Have you tried to delete and re-establish the Google account you want?- Have not tried that. This was set

            up in the store when I purchased it.

              I would try to delete and reset the account.  It's not that hard.  If you want you can PM me and I can assist, but I am sure if you did a hard reset you have the chops to reset the account!

                Hi,
                I am writing about my wife's brand new Samsung Charge on Verizon. We managed to setup both her gmail account and her work exchange server account fine, except for the calendars:
                Her Google calendar shows up fine, but I am unable to even see any other Google calendars that she has access to (both her own secondary calendars as well as calendars that others have shared with her) in order to select them to be visible.
                Her exchange calendar says it is enabled (on the list of available calendars), but no events at all show up.

                This behavior is with the latest software updates on the Charge (2.2.1 firmware, I510.EE4 build) using its stock calendar software. I did notice that if I use Smooth Calendar, it does list all of her Google calendars under its listing of available calendars, but it still only shows data from her primary calendar. This is also true using the Touch Calendar app, which leads me to believe that there is some problem within the Google Calendar sync software that is not allowing her calendars to appear correctly.

                Thanks!

                  Hello whereizben,

                   

                  I see you have posted same post in another thread.  I have already replied to that posting with a solution.  Please see the following link for my reply:

                    I solved a similar problem by doing the following after attempting to force a manual sync:

                     

                    settings/applications/manage/all and then select Calendar Sync Adapter & Calendar applications. Once selected I "Clear Data" in both and the phone was then able to sync with my Google Acct.  No fuss no muss.

                     

                    I first attempted to removed my gmail account and then re-install but it required a resetting of the phone to factory default which I didn't want to do for obvious reasons.  As it turned out, that was thankfully unnecessary.

                      I am running into this same problem and I don't want to reset the phone options factory defaults as this will get rid very important nursing applications I have on the phone.

                        Did you try the first fix suggested by addysdaddy? I don't think that one will wipe the phone back to factory default.

                          That's correct Bill.  The method I'm suggesting simply forces a re-sync between your gmail account and the phone.  It DOES NOT invoke a factory reset
