On my iPhone 4s, all calandars from iCloud are in perfect sync.  On my iPhone 4, all the entries are duplicate times, but moved back by 30 minutes: ie Dentist 2:00 will also show Dentist 2:30.  For almost all entries.  Some entries appear that are not on ANY of my calendars, including from my mac.


All calendars are fine and sync up right (iMac, iPad, iPhone 4s) except this iPhone 4.  From what I can tell, I have all the settings identical on both iPhones.  Help, this is driving me crazy!

iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1

    Do you have another calendar account on the iPhone 4. Settings>Mail, Contacts, Calendars, Accounts?

    You may have calendar sinc turned on in two different places, iCloud and as described above. I don't have an explanation for the half hour off.

    Can't help with the thirty minute difference other than that it may be a bad setting in the date/time portion.  However, if you sync to the cloud and also to a mac be sure not to sync the same calendars with the cloud that you sync with the mac.  I found that checking the box in the info portion of itunes that says calendars can cause dupes.  What was happening was, the mac and phone sync to the cloud, then the phone syncs with the mac, and voila, dupes.

    Hi John7, I'm having the same issues with my iPhone 4 and iCloud calendars--duplicates and quadruple/quintuplet duplications on repeating events.  Apple Store Geniuses had me try wiping and restarting my phone like it was a brand new phone, but that didn't solve the problem. I guess I have to manually delete the dups/repeats (but my calendars go back to 2006--ugh!).
