    OK, I have seen many posts on this topic, and the same amount of solutions. There does not seem to be a definitive solution. This is what I have:
    BlackBerry 9000 running OS 5.0.0.314

    I have a primary GMail account and calendar
    I have a secondary Google App account for work

    My primary GMail account calendar is subscribed to my Google App company calendar.

    On my BlackBerry, the Calendars that I have in my list are:
    Default username@att.blackberry.net
    username@googleappwork.com
    username@gmail.com

    I cannot seem to remove the Default calendar. There is no CICAL for it in my Service Books.

    In Google Sync, I have the following Calendars checked for syncing:
    username@gmail.com
    username@googleappwork.com

    The problem that I have, and what many such posts ask - is the duplicate entry problem. I see the same entry, with unique color codes added to my calendar as:

    username@gmail.com entry
    username@googleappwork.com entry

    Is there a way to get around the duplicate entry issue, AND to have the entries have unique color codes depending on which calendar the google calendar entry is being pulled from? I ask, because a lot of the solutions I have read about involve merging calendars, thus losing the color codes.

    Thank in advance, CrackBerry abusers!

    Are the entries in the Device Default calendar all redundant? If so, you can filter to it and delete prior to bulk remove them.

    If you have Google Sync set to sync both of those email addresses, I don't see any way not to have duplicate entries if you want both calendars to contain the same items online. That begs the question of why do you need two different google calendars? Why not share one to the other account? Then you only need to maintain one calendar.

    For the default calendar, does it actually say Default as the calendar name in the list?

    What is the default calendar selected in options > Advanced Options > Default Services?

    Before you do anything, make a backup of your data.

    If the calendar is listed as Default in the calendar options, then it isn't tied to an e-mail account. What is in there are entries that were left behind when a CICAL servicebook was deleted.

    If that is the case, you can clear the default calendar by highlighting the calendar in the Calendar's Options screen and typing RSET. If will pop up a confirmation box for each calendar on your BB, so only agree to the calendars you want to delete.

    Future reference for others: If you are going to delete a CICAL servicebook entry for an unwanted calendar, and it has entries in it, you will either want to move the entries to a different calendar (typing MOVE will take the calendar entries in the selected calendar and move them to the default calendar selected in BlackBerry Options), and/or clear the calendar (to be removed) using the RSET command before you deleted the CICAL servicebook entry. Anytime there are entries in a calendar that are orphaned, they will show up in the calendar list as Default without being associated with an e-mail address.

    The default calendar that is selected is:
    username@gmail.com

    Also, the "RSET" command does not work on 5.0 (I am on BIS), instead, the following message is displayed: "There are no OTA Enabled calendars to reset."

    Thanks,
