    Hi I've a HTC Mozart T8698, running 7.10.8773.98.

    I'm pulling my hair out trying to get Google calendar to sync correctly.

    I've added the account in "settings>email+account" and I've used the m.google.com/sync applet to select the calendars I want to see.

    I then go into the calendar and I can see my new google calendars, no problem, I can even delete events and these are deleted from google calendar.

    However, if I add any new events on the phone (making sure I select the correct google calendar) they are not uploaded to google calendar, even after forcing a sync on the google account.

    The only thing I've found on the web was a suggestion of a setting in Google "Automatically add invitations to my calendar" being set to Yes but this is the default anyway.

    I've even tried doing a hard reset on the phone which made no difference.

    It's so frustrating as I did this on my ipad and it worked flawlessly..

    Can anyone help?

    I don't know why you are having trouble with it. Mine works just fine and syncs across the phone and on google.

    I use the VsysCalendar app to sync my Google Calendar to my Lumia 900 and it works great.

    Well, I tried setting up a new gmail account thinking is was something to do with that.

    It made no difference, I can receive calendar events through Google calendar and can even delete them (which is updated correctly).

    But when I add a new calendar event on the phone is its not uploaded to google calendar..

    aaarrrgggggghhh!

    Ok I found the problem (for anyone else loosing chunks of hair)!

    I'm using Windows Live for my email but Google Calendar for my calendar. So when I setup the Google account on my phone I've been switching off email. When I switch email on, the sync on the calendar works with no problems and I can now add events on the phone which are then uploaded.

    Must be a requirement for the service, shame they don't mention this when you set it up!:@

    Guess that makes some sense as contacts and calendar sync when mail syncs. So if you are not syncing mail on a particular account, there is no other mechanism to do the syncing.
