    I use Google Calendar for my online calendar and while I can now set it up. It only let's me sync my main calendar.
    Is there a way to get it to also load my other calendars?

    I have the same need. At this point, the only solution I have is to use a unique Gmail account for each calendar.

    This solution has worked for me - YMMV! A brief write up for now as there is a blog article with instructions and no point in repeating them here. Credit goes to the original author.

    As OS2.0 had not brought multiple calendar sync for gmail I decided to trawl the internet for possible hacks.

    Firstly, googles exchange activesync protocol does support multiple calendars. Their decision to limit it to Windows, Android and iOS is presumably for commercial reasons.

    I set up activesync to sync my calendar and contacts - and the primary calendar is synced, but no other secondary calendars are synced. A big disappointment but not RIMs fault, the problem is with Google.

    A quick search found that early "Mango" adopters had similar problems - and therein lies a potential solution.

    This page in particular was helpful and I pretty much followed the instructions. FWIW I used Firefox with a User Agent switcher rather than Safari.

    The key features you need to be familiar with are:
    -changing the user agent string in a browser to access the relevant settings.
    -changing the string in the address bar.
    -understand how to disable javascript in your browser.

    The only significant difference is that Google now seem to use a Supported Multiple Calendars= false string to check the device. I simply changed this value to true and it worked.

    Hopefully this will be a one time operation. It has worked for me and has successfully synced 3 calendars (for all of a couple of hours!)

    How do you do that though?

    I think this is an area where Google is not going to give up a competitive advantage.

    Just grab google sync before they discontinue!

    I know this is an old thread - but i searched for "multiple google calendars blackberry" and it lead me to this place, but then i remembered i once did a multiple calendar setup on my iPhone some time ago. And thought this would help others with the same issue on more recent devices (I'm on a Q10)

    The solution is to go on and enable the other calendars for your blackberry. By default only your primary calendar is enabled for sync. And for some reason, then this can only be done from your device.

    This page at google explains it pretty well - support.google.com/a/users/answer/139206?hl=en

    Choosing which calendars to sync
    Google Sync can sync up to 25 Google Calendars with the Calendar app on your iOS device (your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch).

    To select which calendars to sync to your iOS device, follow these steps:

    1. Open the Chrome or Safari browser on your device and go to m.google.com/sync/settings/
    2. Note: You need to have the language set to English (US) to sync multiple calendars.
    3. Select Sync.
    4. Sign in with your account and select your device from the list of devices you've set up for Google Sync.
    5. Select the calendars you want to sync, and tap Save.
    6. Bookmark this page so you can return to it easily.
