    Droid X won't sync calendar to computer

    I know others have had issues with syncing their calendars and I've tried several fixes but I'm still having problems. Calendar items that I enter on the computer will sync to the phone, but if I enter things on the phone, they don't sync to the computer.

    Other than do a hard reset ( which the Verizon store recommended) can this problem be fixed? And if so, how!?!

    Thanks

    When I look to see which calendar it shows "phone calendar" along with my other shown calendars. But, it won't allow me to sync it for some reason.

    You need to choose your gmail account calendar (or exchange if you're using that instead) when you enter the event. There doesn't appear to be a way to change the calendar selection after you enter an item.

    It will sync automatically.

    The problem, I think is in the calendar itself. While in the calendar, hit the menu you should have "Go to Date" "Calendars" and "Settings". If you go into calendars and I look at my phone calendar the display is "not synced, Visible" with just the eye icon hilighted. I cannot turn on the sync. The gmail is synced, visible.

    Any ideas on how to get the Sync button to work?

    I use google calendar(s) as well. The phone calendar does not sync. There isn't anything wrong. All your other calendars will sync but the phone calendar is stand alone.

    You can only create your google calendars on your computer. Then you should fairly instantly see them on your phone. So if you are creating events on your phone within your google calendar app that you wish to see on your computer choose another google calendar (like " work "or " school "). It will work fine this way. I have about five or six different google calendars. I use my phone calendar for one time only, non important events which I have no need to be stored or to sync with google.

    Make sure in your phone settings for your accounts , that under gmail your google calendar is checked.

    Edit: have you created different calendars on your computer and do you see them on your phone? Inside the google calendar app you can choose any calendar for a particular event. It's a great feature.

    OK, I missed the phone calendar thing. However, I have my gmail set to calendar sync and I still can't get the phone to update to my computer. When I put something in the phone, my sync symbol runs and my 3G turns on, but it never makes it to the computer. It is driving me nuts. It's only been happening since I updated my phone.

    When you open your google calendar app on your phone how many calendars do you show? In other words how many calendars have you created on the web, ie. in your gmail account? If you haven't created any calendars on your gmail account you will only see " phone calendar " in your app. The phone calendar will not sync to your gmail account by design. You must create different calendars in gmail. These will all sync with your device and any events you add to the phone within THESE calendars will sync with google. Sorry for repeating myself but I'm not sure if I'm properly addressing the issue you're having. Gave it my best shot.

    Not true. When you go to make a new calendar entry, tap the calendar box at the top. You should have Phone and your gmail account as two options, and any additional accounts you have added as well. Just choose the one got your gmail account. Then save the entry. Again, you have to do this when first making the entry as you can't change it after the fact.
