After figuring out how to sync my Facebook contacts with my phone contacts, I found that I now have the birthdays of all my Facebook friends on my Jorte calendar. Does anybody have any idea on how to remove this?
events created on phone won't go to google calendar. I believe I have the sync set up right, events on my google calendar have synced to my phone. A previous thread states you have to choose "google calendar" when generating an event on the calendar on the phone, however, when I try to edit the event, under "Calendar" the setting is "My calendar" but I can't change the setting (tapping on it does nothing)
I bought my HTC Legend a few days ago. Today I've pressed "sync all" and now my calendar is FULL of my Facebook friends' birthdays - it's annoying as hell since I'm using the calendar to keep precious dates and appointments in it... how can I remove them?
So I have all my contacts synced with their Facebook profile. I've ticked to use their profile pic and birthday in their contact info. When I go to any contacts details it has the little blue Facebook F next to their photo and also next to their birthday, so I know that it's all synced.
The one problem I do have is when I go in to my calendar none of the birthdays are listed.
I've gone in to the Calendar menu and checked that I have Contact Birthday and Events calendar ticked and listed.
My Google calendar is showing fine and syncing between the phone and the web.
Is this just some bug where Facebook birthdays don't show up in the Calendar? I know there are other ways around this but it'd be nice if the contact info was used better. I was kind of excited about being able to view my contacts events with the calendar, I could of easily seen what I could and could not attend.
Also an extra note, the Contact Birthday and Event Calendar does have some birthdays in it. It has mine and it also has a friend whose Facebook profile I have not linked.
Does anyone know how to sync my contacts birthdays (those that don't have a Facebook) with my calendar?? My calendar displays all my Facebook friends bdays but not my contacts without a facebook. I have to manually enter their bday in calendar even though I added it to the contact info...is there a setting to automatically add these contacts bdays?
Parts of the calendar won't sync. My Trip It agenda or US holidays won't sync. All other Gcal appointments sync and are listed on the phone as expected. I have all agenda items listed on my Gcal and checked all proper boxes on phone settings. I even contacted Blik app developer who confirmed what to do in the settings. It seems this is an SF issue. For travel, Trip It which sends all of my confirmations, flights, rentals, etc. to my calender all of which shows up on Gcal but not on the phone even though the Trip it calendar is checked on the phone settings. Whilst I am new to the SF, I have been an Android user for over a year and none of these issues were present on my D1. Any tips unique to the SF that I am unaware of vis a vis calendars?
I am new to android as I just went from a Blackberry to the Fascinate. I am wondering is there a way to sync events that I put on my calendar with my husband's Fascinate. We us to do this all the time with our Blackberries and it was a life saver. I just created a gmail account to that is all new to me as well. So I am not sure if it somehow has to go through my google calendar or is there an app of a different calendar that we both can download?
I am the proud new owner of a Fascinate (Eris refugee). Love this phone! I don't seem to have any GPS issues, and reception/call quality is excellent so I guess I got a good one...
Except for one thing. My Google calendar will NOT come down into the phone. I've got my email, contacts, FB, everything else is sync'd up perfectly. But the calendar sync just keeps spinning, and anytime I try to open the calendar on the phone, it black screens and hangs for about 3-4 minutes before FC'ing on me. I understand there is a known issue with creating events on the phone calendar and not syncing to gCal - this is not that problem. The phone seems to be "stuck" trying to sync the calendar. I've let it sit there and spin until it stops. I've pulled the battery, removed downloaded apps, done about everything I can think of here. I've spent quite a bit of time getting this phone set up and I've got it dialed in brilliantly - I really REALLY do not want to throw the last several hours of getting this phone set up right out the window, but it looks like that is my only real option - a factory reset.
i am using HTC desire(Android) and i am pretty much happy with the performance. The issue i wanna discuss here is that my phone does not sync the birthdays from my phone contact details to the calender, as it was availabe in my previous phone HTC Touch diamond, i used to feed the birthday details along with the contact and it syncs those birthdays with the calender when i used to sync it manually with the help of computer. But no such option is availabe in Android. please don't reply with the 'synching birthday contact and events' from google calender. I've seen loads of forums on that , but that ain't related to my problem. i want synchronization of my phone contact's birthday details to the phone calender.
I would like to do this without having to manually enter all the dates. Is there any way to sync the contact birthdays and anniversaries to my google calendar without manually updating? Im running launcher pro using the calendar widget so it would be nice to see the dates on the calendar.
I set up my corp exchange email account and the email part of it works flawlessly. The calendar on the other hand is very quirky. On the first Sync I noticed that not ALL appointments were brought over from my Outlook Calendar. Upon researching it seems that the meetings not coming over are all recurring meetings. Some were from other people that I was invited too but most were recurring meetings I had created on my own calendar.
I did some testing to isolate the behavior: Create single appointment in Outlook It shows up perfectly on the Fascinate. In outlook change the appointment to recur monthly Appointment vanishes from Fascinate. Remove recurrence from appointment in Outlook It comes back to Fascinate.
The same behavior can be seen when creating a fresh appointment with recurrence. The problem seems to be isolated also to recurrence set for the "every third wednesday" or something similar. It works for monthly on the 20th for instance.
Firmware version is: 2.1-Update1 Build: SCH-I500.DI01 (downloaded today and did not correct sync issue)
Set up a facebook account on my Fascinate to sync contacts and it keeps giving an error trying to sync. It saids Sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. Never does.Anyone else get this or is it just me? Might it be fixed? Anything i can do to make it work?
Has anyone else noticed that when you sync "my calendar" with facebook it duplicates birthdays? Sometimes even triples! I removed "my calendar" option in calendar, but now all the birthdays are gone --I want it to show birthdays just not duplicates of them!
Having all my facebook contacts who have their mobile nos on their profile coming up in my contacts and all the ones with their birthdays coming up in my calendar. Any idea how I can stop this because it's annoying having all this info I don't want amongst the stuff I do.
I just moved from blackberry to android and I am having some issues with the calendar. My old calendar had individual pop ups for each event, the pop up allowed you to open/snooze/ or dismiss each item individually. Also my old calendar had no trouble syncing my gmail and facebook calendars. Android seems to have trouble doing this seemingly simple task. Is there an app or special calendar that can do this?
I played with the Fascinate today for more than an hour at VZW. I LOVE IT. My only question is related to the calendar. On my D1 I have many more widget choices including the calendar. This widget displays on my home screen and always shows my next appointment whether it is today or in a week. The next calender entry always shows. This is not the case for the Fascinate. It has a nice widget that shows weather, stocks, and at the bottom appointments. It only shows today's appointments. I downloaded a calender widget app that was nice and may work but it would not open so I don't know.
Now the question: Can any of you guys with the fascinate comment on a widget that allows the widget to display the next entry on the calendar. To be clear on my D1, if I have no calendar entries for today, my 10am meeting tomorrow shows up on the widget with a time and date. Can one do this with the Fascinate.
My 'accounts & sync' settings have always had 'facebook' turned off for syncing, and I have never turned it on. Yet this morning i was playing around with the bit in 'people' to try and see if the facebook bit in there worked and i would be able to link a contact in there with their facebook account. It asked me to log into facebook (after which incidentally it could not then find the contact in facebook lol). After that i went to the calendar and it now shows ALL 2500 facebook contacts birthdays!!
Please tell me there is a way to undo this. at no point did i ever select auto facebook syncing, or choose to import facebook calendar. Obviously now the calendar is pretty unusable as there are multiple bithdays on every day.
Lemme start by saying I was finally able to figure out how to sync my fascinate with the music on my computer. It took a while but I did eventually figure it out.But now I'm having a very strange problem. I'm unable to mount the phone when I connect it to my computer.The problem is whenever I plug the phone into the computer the phone doesn't recognize a USB connection.So I can't go in and tell it to mount. The weird part is that if I just plug the phone into the wall to charge that's when I get the USB notification that I've connected to a USB.Somewhere my phone has mixed the two inputs up.
How can I clear my calendar and make it so it doesn't sync with Facebook?Basically I like how my phone syncs people in my phonebook to their facebook profile. I'd like it to put THEIR birthday on my calendar (if they exist in both my phone book and their facebook profile is linked and synced), however I don't want every single facebook contact to have their freaking birthday on my calendar.
I am on a debranded Desire with 2.2 Apologies if this is a duplicate post but can someone plese advise how to turn off the Calendar sync with Facebook? It is a nice feature but my calendar is swamped with birthdays from my Facebook "friends"
I have an HTC Evo and am getting used to the Android system - this is my first smartphone too so please excuse my ignorance. I am a medical student and have a pretty crazy schedule and I have relied on google calendar for several years now to keep my schedule. I was excited to use it on my phone, but my problem is that it is syncing with facebook and uploading all these birthdays. Now, I don't want to sound like a jerk who doesn't care about my friends birthdays but I already check those through facebook - they are cluttering up my calendar and I want them off! I can't for the life of me figure out how to make it stop syncing with facebook and it could just be that I don't know where to go. I have looked under "Settings" within the calendar and haven't found it.
just got a Motorola Backflip and I have the Facebook android app for it. My Facebook contacts have synced but I have no seen a place or way to sync my Facebook events/calendar with my device calendar. Is there a way to do this?
