My calendar list looks different. I only have the only option with my email account listed together with the local. Did I set something up wrong?
EDIT: I will also mention that I have two gmail account calendars active yet it only gives me the one option to add events to, not a deal breaker as the other calendar is there just so I can see it. Regardless, the second calendar doesn't appear in the drop down list.

In that case I would suggest you delete your gmail account.. go back to post 1 and start again.. you will probably have to wait 24 hours from the time you delete it before you can re-add it.. and then don't forget another 48 hours after that before you should see the gmail option when adding an entry.

Yes, I have done multiple tests yesterday/today and can't seem to get any added events to upload to my google calendar. I set up my calendar on Thursday of last week which is well beyond what everyone says you should wait for results. Maybe I just have to be patient. Strongly considering going Google Apps direction if I can't figure it out by the end of the week. $60 a year just to be able to update my calendar seems like a rip off, but after not having it for a week I am starting to think that it's a steal of a deal!
EDIT: sounds good, I will delete today, re add tomorrow, then report back this weekend!

I just went thru this process and there was an option in there to choose the default invite calendar (originally it is set to local)
Under accounts go set defaults and then under calendar choose the Gmail calendar
Then when you add an event u can choose Gmail calendar
I am going to check soon if it syncs its been about 30 min since I added the Gmail account
Note I did not go through the calDAV setup process and my events are shown already I just need to get to a computer to see if my test event updated on Google or not

There is another answer. Open a hotmail account, add it to your phone and device then turn off sync for just the email and contacts use only the calender and you will have an active sync calender and your Gmail email address and contacts.

If you are referring to using a Hotmail calendar. Leave your Gmail intact and when you set up the Hotmail account on your phone. Set the sync email and sync contact switches to off. That will leave you with just the active exchange Hotmail calendar and your Gmail email and contacts

Microsoft mail and calendars work very well on the Os. It is Google playing dirty pool with the competition. They are taking a page from apples book. They have people using their Gmail accounts now they are tightening the net trying to restrain you to their platform.

Been a few hours and my contacts have not yet synced lol. One way sync from google calendar to phone does seem to work though. The weird thing is those 3 entries (email, calendar and contacts) are in the list and if u go to edit them... The settings are the same as what was outlined in the op. So do I again have to go and manually input the caldav and cardav settings after 24 hrs?hmm
Nvm looks like once it's set up the first time I just have to wait it out for calendar stuff to start working.
Will contacts sync after this 24 hr period too?
deleted the contacts account and readded it manually and the contacts synced up instantly
they did sync up before (took a few hours to kick start the sync i guess?) but they were doubles of everything...so deleting and readding carDAV manually fixed it
also had facebook and twitter contacts showing up in contacts
figured out theres a setting in the settings to show them or not haha so i put all those to off

My contacts are synced with Google but occasionally a surname will disappear or change to one from another linked account (for that person). Wish there was a way to make the Google account the default for contacts (and make any edits stick).

Fingers crossed I have it all working now. Gmail email, contacts and calendar synced. Work email, contacts and calendar synced via ActiveSync and that can be updated and 2 way sync. Still to test the Gmail 2 way - one way is enough for now.

I have an outlook.com account and just for ****s and giggles i tried adding it
didnt even bother going thru advanced > active sync
just added it as an email and it autodetecting active sync etc
gave me the option to sync calendar, email, contacts, notes and tasks
seeing as how easy it was im tempted to just say **** it to gmail and auto forward al that to outlook.com (in a specific folder i guess) and just use outlook.com hahah
