try rebooting the phone by holding both the home and power buttons until the apple logo appearsand then let go of buttons and then wait for the phone to restart and see if it makes a change

Sorry I should have included what I have tried, I have rebooted, turned off/on all my calanders, changed international settings no joy. I also searched back to see of I had any dots months ago and they dont show their either.

I had the same issue. I called apple support and got it working. Basically, the issue is that the calendar is not refreshing. It's a weird fix, but this is what you do:
1) Open the Calendar app on hold your phone vertically.
2) On the bottom you will see List, Day, and Month views. Click on list view and scroll through your events a year into the past then randomly into the future (I know this step is strange). While in list view open an event in the past or future.
3) Now click on Day to briefly look at day view without doing anything.
4) Finally click on Month to look at Monthly view.
You should see the dots again. If it doesn't work, repeat the steps a few more times.
Please let me know if this worked for you; it somehow got it working for me. If you did something different and got it working, please post. NOTE, apple support did not suggest this to me, I was just playing around with the calendar while she was trying to help and just got it working randomly.

I tried these steps exactly many times but didn't fix the problem:
Open the app, go to list view, scroll to past as far as it could go, then past the current date, click on an event in the future, go back to normal default view, click day view for 2 seconds and back to monthly view and nothing happened.
Am I doing it right or is it not a fix for everyone? Thanks

I trashed all my cache and data base files. MAKE BACK UPS. On Leopard so may vary for Lion etc.
Back up Iphone calendars to iCloud
Export iCal calenders to desktop
Shut down iCal
Back up and trash
Library > Calenders > Any numerical based folders and the Calendar Cache
Library > Preferences > iCal Plist files
Library > Application Support > Sync Services > Local
Your iphone should still have all your calendars, with Back Up to iCloud checked and in the Info tab in itunes select Sync Calendars
> Apply > Sync Button
You might have to manually import your exported calendars back into iCal, but your dots should be back

If your phone gets an error message and will not sync, eject iphone temorarily.
Find your backed up LOCAL file and replace in Library > Application Support > Sync Services > Local
Remove new LOCAL file if your mac has created a new one. Once you replace it with the old one it will alow you to delete from the trash
Reconnect your iphone
In itunes > Info tab Sync Calendars > All Calendars
Apply > Sync
You may be prompted to advise because it is going to change a percentage of info on you mac > say yes
Your Calendars should now reappear on your computer.
I did try to re-import my exported calendars. I had the same problem all over again, so it seems that there was some corruption contained in the old calender .ics files. I had to start the whole process again. Trick is to keep your data in icloud and your phone. You are essentially repairing and replacing you iCal using your phone and iCloud. It is your computer files .ics files that are corrupt and need new ones making.
Hope that helps
