    Found it:

    Subscribe to a CalDAV or .ics calendar:
    In Settings, choose “Mail, Contacts, Calendars,” then tap Add Account.

    Choose Other, then choose either Add CalDAV Account or Add Subscribed Calendar.

    Enter your account information, then tap Next to verify the account.

    Tap Save.

    Hi, I would like to be able to do that too. Could you give me a step by step instruction step. I'm not very tech savvy. Thanks.

    Here is the simple solution

    1) Tap on "Settings" from your main screen on iPhone.
    2) Tap on "*Mail, Contacts, Calendars*"
    3) Tap on "*Add Account...*"
    4) Tap on "Other" (At the bottom)
    5) Tap on "*Add CalDav Account*" (Second from the bottom)
    6) If you are using Google calendars, just type in the word "google" (without the quotes) for the server
    7) User Name is your gmail address (Example:
    8) Password is your gmail password
    9) Description can be whatever you want it to be.
    10) Tap the "Next" button on the upper right.
    11) Start using your Calendar!
    * For Yahoo Calendars, follow the exact same steps above, but instead of typing "google" for the server, type "yahoo" (Without the quotes) and your user name will be your Yahoo email address. (Example:

    Also, for Yahoo - Make sure you have upgraded your Yahoo calendar to the latest beta version. You can mae sure you are using the Beta calendar by clicking the following link:

    I hope this helps!

    It works perfectly for both calendar systems. My wife and I now have a shared calendar which we can both edit from our iPhones and iCal. Cool stuff!

    I'm still having trouble adding my Yahoo Calendar. I keep getting an error message saying: "Cannot Connect Using SSL". I've updated to Yahoo Beta and am entering my entire e-mail address as the log-in. What else am I missing?

    Do I need to update to the new beta Yahoo! calendar? I'm still using the classic version of Yahoo! mail and calendar and would like to keep it that way.

    I'm also having the same problem as the poster above.

    How is using a CalDev account to setup a Google calendar different from using the Microsoft exchange account that Google says to use (with server being as described on this page:
  • Gac Menius Level 1 (0 points)

    The quick and dirty answer to your question is this:

    With iPhone OS 3.0, you can only have one exchange account configured on your iPhone at a time. For some people this wont be an issue. However, in my situation, I use an exchange account for my work email, so I do not have the option of sharing my work calendar with my wife. She already had a Google calendar in use, so using the CalDav method, we were able to both access and modify a shared calendar. As far as I know, there is no specific limit to the number of CalDav calendars you can configure on your iPhone.

    For some people, the option you mentioned may be easier or work better, but for those who already have an Exchange account configured on their iPhone, the CalDav option may be more convenient.
