    Hello all, I'm a recent convert from my BB Storm to a Droid 2. I'm of course having issues in the transition but I do love my new device.
    I'd call it a phone but it's more than a phone, I'd call it a toy but it's way better than a toy.

    I'm looking forward to reading what the experts are saying about my new device.

    well I was under the impression that my gmail account would just sync up when i set it up in store. NOPE. I can retrieve my gmail account but no syncing is happening.

    When I look at my calendar widget it says to sync for the first time, which i cannot do. It doesn't even give me an option to in my accounts.

    arggghhh

    Ok here's what I would do

    Go to settings > accounts > google and remove your google acct then create and sync a dummy acct. Create at least one calendar event and then go back to settings > accounts > google and resync your acct and get rid of the dummy. See if that does it for you.

    lol thanks. Ok I did what all self respecting nerds do, I reset to factory defaults and started over. NOW i have the calendar but can't find where my contacts are sync'd on gmail / google. they're there and i can access them but it's not as clear to me that they're stored where I want them to be. not sure what's going on but i do have my calendar at the moment and that's good news. I'll attack this little by little over the next few days. thanks for your help

    Matt, new drodian

    well just an update, had to reset the phone to factory defaults and start over. luckily the lookout program loaded on the device did it's job and backed up everything and restored it automatically. now i have a functioning calendar...YAY:icon_ banana:

    Thanks for your help on this issue all, and I'll keep lurking and learning.

    :)

    welcome to the forum i had the same switch and it took me a couple weeks to get use to the android software and the D2 in general. i can honestly say it a switch i will never regret because the D2 has so many more capabilities than the BB storm(1). i hope you enjoy the switch and enjoy the stay
