I have both an iPhone 3GS and just got the iPhone 4 today. I am using the Google Exchange servers to synchronize my Gmail and Google Calendars. The 3GS includes all 8 of my Google Calendars on my account, but the 4 is only grabbing my main calendar and one of the other 7 calendars, not all of them. I have deleted and re-enabled the account numerous times, but it is always the same "other" calendar that appears. I find this odd, as I deleted the account on the 3GS and re-enabled it and it again properly grabbed all the calendars. What is wrong with this iPhone 4?

    I'm having the same problems. I've looked through every forum but to no avail there has not been an answer to this issue. I wish someone at apple or google would look into this situation.

    With the calendars application open do you see the "Calendars" button in the top left? If you click on that do you see more calendars listed from which you can select?

    First be sure you have your calendars enabled for sync:
    * http://m.google.com/sync and login - Click on your iPhone for sync
    (If you have had several devices tied to the calendar, you'll see lots of them. Pick the newest if you have more than one iPhone or all of them one at a time.)
    * On your calendars you see, be sure all calendars are checkboxed and save it
    * Go to your iPhone home, then settings / mail
    * Scroll to calendars on the bottom and be sure it says "All Events" for sync
    * Open your Calendar app and press the <-Calendar on the top
    * See if you have all of your calendars
    * Note it may take a few minutes or a reboot of the phone to refresh

    The Google Sync is limited to _five calendars_ per account at the moment. So you would have to have signed in to two GMail accounts or Exchange Servers as 'm.google.com' in order to have ten in total if iPhones are permitted to have that many.

    Hopefully you guys have gottent his figured out by now. If not, I just had the same issue. All my calendars were working and then two days ago, it just showed my main calendar. What you have to do is select the calendars you want to sync on your iPhone.

     

    Go here: https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect

     

    Select and Save. So easy but this link doesn't come up anywhere when searching for it.

     

    Hope that helps.
