    Default BB / iCal / Google Calendar

    An old chestnut, I fear, but before I waste any more time on this I'd like to be sure...

    I keep my diary on Google Calendar. There's a nice CalDav two-way feature which syncs GCal and iCal seamlessly and near-enough in real-time. So far, so good.

    Blackberry DM will sync with iCal, but specifically excludes as 'read-only' calendars held remotely over CalDav. So I can't sync the iCal version of my Google Calendar with my BB.

    I particularly do not want to use Google Sync for the BB. It's important for my work that I have appointments well into the past and far into the future on my BB, and Google Sync currently has unacceptable limits on this.

    Has anyone found a way round this problem? Or am I stuffed?

    Thanks

    I have this issue as well. I'm not sure why DM thinks Google Calendar is read-only. Like the above posters, I can't use Google Sync - it's too busy. I'd prefer not to have to buy a product. Does anyone know how to fix it?

    Hi,

    FWIW in iCal I subscribe to my Google Calendar and get two way sync. On my BB I sync Google calendar and also get two way sync. I can live with that.

    Unfortunately the initial calendar sync only goes back two weeks. Also when I reload the BB OS I have to delete and re-add the Gmail account in order to get Google to sync again.
