    Default Calendar sync with BB7 phone and PlayBook 2.0

    I have a BB 9860 and a PlayBook running 2.0. I can get my contacts to sync between the two devices, but for some reason, my calendars do not sync.

    I go into Google Calendar on my laptop and update events, birhdays, etc. and that shows up on my PlayBook, but not in my phone. I can make changes in my phone's calendar, but nothing shows up in my PlayBook's calendar. They are using credentials.

    Am I missing something?

    There's an app you can install on your phone called 'Google Sync'. It will sync your phone to the Google account. In this way it is indirectly synced to your playbook.

    you can install Google Sync as someone else suggested. But make sure the sync feature under email setup application > Gmail > Syncronization Options >Calendar is disabled or else you will get double reminders and events. As for syncing more than one calendar to the tablet, follow the instructions here: http://crackberry.com/how-sync-multi...berry-playbook

    When I use it for the first time, I use DM and delete all entries from the device. Then install google sync and run it.

    I have found, and this may not be true for everyone, that each time I stop it, I have to delete the app and reinstall it or the sync fails.

    CGSCOT: did you do a manual sync on all calendars to test if it syncs across devices? Google sync on the phone syncs automatically and periodically so if you want the entries to appear instantly you have to manually sync.

    Is your phone on a BES? If not - you will need to manually sync your phone to your account with a PC. My work has an exchange server but no BES so I have to sync my phone to my account via usb.

    Your PB uses more "active sync" type protocols which is why you see instant updates on your PB from your Google calendar. Your PB and your BB use different formats.

    Tried manual sync on both BB & PB but still nothing showing, going to delete & start from scratch tonight.

    I suspect that when BB10 arrives it will sync with new native PB mail, calendar & contacts with no problems as it'll all be built from the same platform & not the mix of OS7 / PB 2.0 at moment.

    I have the exact same problem. The only way it seems to work is when I add an attendee, then both bb and pb sync.. Really annoying that it doesn't work differently..
