    Anyone else having issues with Google calendars not syncing from computer to phone? I also sync with someone else's Google calendar but that is not working now either. I have changed the settings multiple times with no luck. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm watching for an answer as well. Mine use to sync when the Razr was new, but for some reason it no longer syncs.

    Google Calendars not syncing - FOUND RESOLUTION for my Razr

    4/14/12
    Mine is not working either. Only just noticed it today; haven't been at my PC for a few days and it looks like it hasn't been syncing for a couple of days. (In case you run into this old post from 2011 about changing your options in Gmail to notify with "any" email instead of "new email"....this didn't work for me. It did for some, but like I said, it's an old thread). This DroidForum thread is the newest one I've found. Since it didn't look like we'd found a solution yet, I went back out there digging around some more and FINALLY FOUND THE SOLUTION! For me anyway; hope it works for you guys. (actually, it was 2 different forums so I did this in 2 steps; you may only need to do the second one).

    First step:

    Here's the link-amazingly it was in Google Mobile Help. Sheesh! It describes going into Setting-->"Accounts & Sync". Unfortunately on the Droid Razr we do not have "Accounts & Sync", only "Accounts" :blink: (I'm reading in a forum right now that delves into that issue, but that's for another thread).

    So I just did a manual sync for my Gmail account, syncing everything from Google Play to Calendar ... the calendar took a while to completely sync, but it worked!). Everything was synced; only thing I noticed was my color bars are off, but who cares! That's as far as I could go with this thread. Here's the link:

    Problems with sync - Google Mobile Help

    Second Step:

    Luckily, I found this step over @ AndroidCentral and it worked for me. It involves the Power Widget; sure enough that was my problem. My auto-sync had been disabled. The moment I re-enabled it, I added a new entry in my calendar and it showed up momentarily on my phone. :icon_ banana:Funny thing though...I've NEVER used the Power Widget. The only thing I can think of is when I was fooling around with an app I recently downloaded (Droid Easy Battery Saver ... pretty cool app actually) ... I went into advanced mode and manually played around with different settings to get the optimization I wanted ... perhaps I overrode the "sync" setting in the Power Widget. Not sure, but if I hadn't found the only 2 people out there having the same issue, I would still be SOL!

    Anyway, here's the link. Hope one of these 2 helps you out. :)

    Droid RAZR/Verizon

    About 2 weeks ago I noticed all appointments in 2 of my 10 calendars disappeared. After trying reboots & setting/resetting the sync,visible/no sync,not visible google calendar options, rebooting.......... I asked my husband to try to sync one of the calendars on his Bionic. Worked for him. He could see all the appointments. I have now discovered that when I click on the sync icon (twirling arrows) in my phone's Settings/Accounts/<google account>@gmail.com/GoogleCalendar Sync the icon twirls for several minutes, then just stops. I can go back hours later & the icon is still sitting there. All other syncs in the account (gmail, data, contacts, etc) run, but as soon as the icon stops spinning, it vanishes.

    After that saga, can anyone point me to my next step? Do I just sit back & hope ICS, due for RAZR by end of June, will fix this problem? Oh, & I don't have Power Widget on my phone (suggested as a fix by another unhappy RAZR owner).

    Thanks for amy words of wisdom!

    Try going into settings, applications, manage applications, all, scroll down to the Calender app, clear data and force close it. Throw the widget in the trash. Soft boot the phone(hold power and volume down) then report add the widget...let me know how this works :cool:

    Google Calendars not syncing -- feedback


    I attempted to clear data & force close the Calendar app. I'm assuming, since it's part of the Android system, force closing the app came back with the "force closing an app may cause it to misbehave." I didn't get the popup asking if I wanted to report the problem. I also went to the Calendar Service & force closed it. The Clear Data button was grayed out on both, but all counts were 0B anyway, which could be why the option to clear wasn't available.

    Didn't have any widgets to delete.

    Soft booted. No change in behavior. The sync icon was not spinning. I turned off/on Calendar Sync. After several minutes, the spinning stopped but stayed visible. The same 2 calendars are still not showing appointments.

    Any other good thoughts????

    Thanks!

    google calendar not syncing

    Do you have any kind of battery saver or power management app installed? The app I was using turned off my auto sync in the power settings widget ( Easy battery saver) I'd never used that widget, but after searching for hours and hours I found an old post from someone in the philippines who had the exact same problem I was having. ( 1 post out of the dozens I had searched... finally!)

    I also have a RAZR and was looking in all my apps but couldn't find it. Then I pulled up "add a widget", scrolled down and there it was. D'oh! I uninstalled "easy battery saver", turned auto sync on in the power settings widget... That did it!

    I really liked the "easy battery saver" app, So I reinstalled and just made sure that auto-syncing was enabled. Haven't had any problems since.

    Hope this helps :)

    So try this, long press your screen, anywhere on the home screen. Select Widgets, select, toggle power control. Now this widget will have 5 parts, the arrows forming a circle, that's your data sync. Make sure its on(shows a green indicator).

    That was it!!!! When I first got my RAZR (Dec/Jan), I played around with the new Smart Actions app for about a day. When I found out it was basically useless for me, I just totally forgot about it. It popped in my mind when I was going through my apps drawer looking for any app that might have a battery saver routine. When I saw Smart Actions, it all suddenly clicked.

    Thank you!!

    So I am having pretty much the same issue, but the funky thing is... I have two google calendars attached to my razr... my work and my personal... The personal calendar syncs just fine (adding an event on my PC shows up on my phone almost instantaneously). For the work calendar, I have to manual sync for things to transfer over... this used to work maybe 2 weeks ago and just suddenly stopped for no reason. I have checked all of the settings that people mentioned above (auto-sync is turned on, I don't use the power widget but I checked it, I disabled smart actions, I deleted and added the corporate google account and rebooted the phone in between...). Corporate Mail syncs fine, corp contacts sync fine... but the damn calendar no longer syncs without a manual push... Any other ideas? I also tried clearing the data in app settings for the application and service... that didn't work either.

    Disappearing Calendars

    I had meant to get back to you when you first posted & got sidetracked. It seems to me you might have another problem simply because you can actually get your calendars to sync manually. I could not. However, I will tell you what I went through before I wrote the Forum & maybe something will trigger another path for you to explore.....

    1. I use Google Calendar on my laptop, Business Calendar App on my RAZR.
    2. Checked my laptop Google Calendar. All is good. At least I haven't lost any appointments forever.
    2. I had recently received an update to the System Version on my phone. That MUST be the problem! So, I have to figure out what THEY did....
    3. Tried manual sync. Same 2 calendars still missing.
    4. Maybe sync settings got reset somehow? No, the settings are correct on both laptop & phone.
    5. Suddenly remembered I hadn't checked Google Calendar on my phone to see if the calendars are there, or maybe the sync settings there were had been changed. All looked right, but the calendars did not show up in the Google Calendar app, either.
    6. During all this, I was also doing internet research & had found it was had been a battery saver problem back in 2011. I had tried a couple of battery savers on my old Droid, but hadn't used them. I use Timeriffic at night to shut everything down. That's the only app that did anything with saving battery power that I had brought to the new phone.
    7. EXCEPT, I had forgotten about Smart Actions, which would have been helpful to automatically shut everything off in specific locations. However, that only works if you have GPS running. At least, I that's the only time it seemed to work for me. So, not very useful. I just put Smart Actions totally out of my mind.

    That's the end of my saga. I hope there's something in there that triggers a new path to a solution for you. Good Luck!!

    Oddly enough, downloading and setting up Touchdown Mail has fixed my sync issues. For some reason the corp google account just wasn't working for calendar sync. But Touchdown is working, not instantaneously but it does the job. Good thing I'd gotten my previous company to pay for it!
