I use my iphone calendar ALL the time. I used it most the day today without problem. All the sudden, though, now when I go into the calendar, it won't let me do anything. It just freezes and eventually crashes back to the home screen. Sometimes when I first get into the calendar, it will let me click one item or scroll a couple of lines (in list mode), but beyond that, it won't budge. Haven't been able to get back to month mode, add or delete any items, nothing. The last couple of times it hasn't even let me do anything.

I have rebooted the phone three times and will try to sync it tonight, but I don't know what good that will do, if anything. This is VERY frusrating as I use my calendar throughout the day every day.

I have it synched with my google calendar if that makes any difference.

Any ideas?
TIA!

3g, iPhone OS 3.1.2

    Does this mean you are accessing your Gmail account as an Exchange account with your iPhone and syncing your Google calendar events over the air?

    Yes, as far as I know this is how I set it up.

    Have you tried turning Calendars off for over the air syncing?

    If not, give this a try. A warning message will be provided indicating the calendar events downloaded from and being kept synchronized with your Google online calendar will be erased from your iPhone with an option to save the calendar events locally on your iPhone. Decline the prompt to save the calendar events locally on your iPhone.

    Follow this by turning Calendars back on for over the air syncing.

    Accessing a Gmail account as an Exchange account via ActiveSync is an entirely new protocol for Google and is still in BETA stage.

    I have tried to do this twice now, but it locks up my phone for an extended period of time and keeps saying "Turning Off Calendars". But it never seems to resolve itself. It ends up going dark and phone locks. When I swipe to access the phone again, it's still running with the same calendars message.

    I am trying one more time while I can leave it for a while.
