    multiple Google Calendars

    Advertisement



    I have several calendars in my Google calendar account, mine of course and several "others"...

    I've set them all up to Google sync on my 8130.

    Is there a way to either "filter" or at least change the color of the "other" calendars as they display on my phone?

    When I go to Calendar : Options it looks like the phone could support multiple calendars/colors but I only have "one" calendar listed in the phone? with all the entries from all the google calendars.

    The device can support multiple calendars but not in the mannor you are trying. The new 4.3 device software supports multiple calendars based on CICAl service books. You would receive a CICAL service book for every email account you setup on the device. If you only have 1 email account you will only have 1 calendar. Also when you synchronize, it may show up as multiple calendars on the device but will all synchronize in to 1 calendar if you are using outlook or such for email.

    Thanks Mark, I actually think I can fix then if I understand correctly.

    I'm thinking --
    What I "could" do is setup a "new" email (google) account
    (something like mywork@gmail.com)

    set up that email acount on the phone

    subscribe that google account to the shared / public calendars

    and then google sync (calendar) that account to my device? can my device support multiple google sync calendars?

    It should be able to. On my calendar, it lists all of my gmail and yahoo accounts as part of the calendar. Each one has its own unique color. Calendar-->Menu Button-->Select Calendar

    However, under Calendar-->Menu Button-->Options, when I look at my accounts, the "wireless sync" is off. This could be due to me not setting up my gmail accounts for the calendar yet, I don't know. But yes, it would appear its capable of supporting multiple google calendars.

    Hope that helped a little.

    Wireless sync can only be enabled for BES accounts not for regular BIS email accounts
