    I have many calendar events from previous months that I would like to have access to on my Droid. They show up correctly on the Google Calendar but when I do to sync the Droid it only show the previous month.

    Any suggestions on how to fix this? It can't be a storage issue considering I just purchased the Droid and it has plenty of memory.

    Can't see events from previous month

    Please forgive the fact that I cannot help you--but I notice you posted this a while back. Did you ever find and answer to this, anywhere? Thanks.

    I'm assuming you have it set to sync permantly and not just sync occasionally.

    Not a solution, but a workaround. If the events are on the Google Calendar on the web, simply access the Google Calendar via your web browser.

    Thanks jsh1120, yup I know about that option. I am coming from a Palm Treo which contains all past calendar events. From what I have read there is no way to display more than 1 months past events - which I believe is a major flaw. I do not think it has anything to do with permanent vs. user initiated syncing. What I would really love is a native replacement calendar app - not widget that pull from the google calendar. Oh how I miss Datebook app on the Palm.

    Now I'm confused. I just entered a fictitious event on my google calendar from January 2010 and it shows up both on my Droid and on my Google desktop calendar. Likewise, it shows up in my Outlook calendar from two months ago.

    So now I guess I don't understand what problem you're having.

    Edit: Ah, wait. Now I see what you mean. While I can enter events in the past and they'll synch correctly, the original synch of my google account with my outlook didn't bring those old events over. Is that right?

    It's interesting...since my first post back in Nov. It appears that the Droid Calendar app now stores 2 months of appointments when it was originally one. My web-based Google Calendar retains everything from the past. Possibly this was part of the 2.01 update. Who knows what other tricks lie in the 2.1 update.

    I have seen the same problem and believe it is a Google issue. My January on my phone is blank, but on my web based Google calendar it is full of appointments. I found that if I add a new event on the PC based calendar it appears on the phone after the next sync. Using that info I tried exporting all my calendar events from the PC based calendar and then without even deleting the calendar I imported them again. As soon as the phone resynched all the events were back on the phone. I did nothing to the phone at all, so I think it is a problem with Google not the phone. The reason the events were wiped off the phone in the first place probably has to do with the numerous roms I have tried. Try it and see if it works for you.

    The way to solve this problem is to add calendar entries to Google Calendar AFTER the phone initially syncs with with Google Calendar.

    I sync my Outlook Calandar with Google Calandar then my phone syncs with Google Calendar. I deleted all my Google Calendar entries (about 6,000 entries going back 15 years), then reloaded them. Had no problems except for a few dozen duplicate entries on my phone. The whole process took about an hour.
