    Found the solution

    So when you first set up your phone, which ever "google" calender you want on your phone - you will need to use that one to set up the phone.

    The phone only lets one google calendar per phone...i know odd right...if you have 2 or more google calendars you will need to marge them through the google account you used to set up your phone

    Verizon requires a "gmail" account to set up the phone...because the schools email is run on a gmail server it will work.

    So just use your abc@xyz.edu email when you set up your phone and it will work.......

    If you have already set up your phone you will need to reset the phone to factory settings. You will lose all your data but not files like pics, etc - just apps and stuff.....

    Let me know if this helps.....

    Same problem here!

    I have the Droid X and an education gmail apps address. When I tried to add my gmail as my initial setup, the error message states that Google Talk is missing and I need to contact my IT administrator. Since I'm sure the school system will not add Google Talk to our available services on Google apps, I am thinking of returning the Droid X. It is a great machine, but this is ridiculous.
