    I can't get my list of calendars to update.


    My wife and I have iphones and yahoo calendars which we share with each other. My wife keeps several calendars on her Yahoo account. When we first added the accounts, all calendars showed up.


    Recently, we added a couple new calendars, and they're not showing up.


    I've done the following:


    1) Verified the calendars are shared with me

    2) Deleted and re-added my Yahoo account on my iphone

    3) Refreshed my list of calendars from the calendar app

    4) Set push to "on" and fetch to "every 15 minutes" (to try and force the update)

    5) Tried adding a caldav acct., which got me double entries for all the older calendars, but nothing from the new ones.


    Still not seeing the new calendars.


    This makes me think that there's a problem sharing the new calendars on the Yahoo side. I've checked and double checked, and sharing for the new calendars seems to be set the same way as for the old.

    Well, not sure why, but here's what happened.


    When someone shares a calendar, Yahoo sends an email. I was receiving those for the new calendars, clicking on the link to share, and entering my password. After entering my password, I was not getting a fail notice, but was being dumped back to the same screen (assumed it was just waiting for me to get back into my account).


    I decided to click on the link for "can't get into my account" and was led through the process of entering a new password (after answering my security questions).


    Changed my password.


    Reclicked on the emails to share the calendars.


    Went right to the calendars, where I could subscribe, no problem.


    A lot of the solutions here seem to be brute force (add/remove the account, change the password). Obviously this was not hashed out very well between Yahoo and Apple.


    The upgrade to iOS5 actually fried my wife's phone (check to see if your WiFi connection is grayed out, that's a sure sign, and they may swap your phone out).


    Too much time spent doing what should be automatic.

    I have mine set up the same way sherry, but still not syncing calendars or reminders.  I have come to depend on my ipod and this is a pain....  I thought technology was supposed to make life easier.

    It may be an issue with Yahoo! but it also appears to be an issue with the CalDAV implementation for Yahoo! on the iPhone and iPad.  Here's what I did to get my Yahoo! calendar on my iPhone and iPad.


    1) On your iOS device, open the Settings application

    2) Select Mail, Contacts Calendars

    3) If necessary, in the Accounts section, open your Yahoo! account and make sure Calendars and Reminders are both set to "OFF"

    4) Next, in the Accounts section, select "Add Account..."

    5) On the Add Account... page, select "Other"

    6) Under Calendars, select "Add CalDAV Account" and apply settings.



    Use SSL: Y

    Port: 443

    iPad Yahoo! Calendar Account URL:

    Thanks dc210.   I did as you suggested and almost everything is working.  ipod and pc are talking except pc to ipod reminders are not syncing.  ipod to pc seems to work fine, this will work for me since I tend to put my reminders in the ipod.  Thanks. 


    Hopefully this will take care of the problem.  But I still think it would better if Apple/Yahoo would get it together so that we could just turn the calendar and reminders on under the Yahoo account setup.  (the way it used to be before all the updates)

    I too was having major heart failure about this, having only just upgraded to iCloud I was thinking I should buy a paper diary but simply deleted my yahoo account as previously suggested. Turned off the phone, turned it back on, Re-entered my account and hey presto it's all back.

  • Red Hot Mah Mah Level 1 (0 points)

    Well it worked great for almost four days.  Now I get the "please enter password" popup every couple of minutes and it doesn't except my password.  I have cleared safari history and cookies and it still is not working.  I guess my ipod is nothing but a game player now.  Shame.  You would think between Apple and Yahoo someone would figure out a fix.

    Thank you for the message from Yahoo!  That worked.  My events are back!

  • DavidInFlushing Level 1 (0 points)

    I had all of the above problems on my Touch 4G v.5.0.1:

    calendar not syncing perfectly; I had a normal yahoo calendar which was working for a while- not caldav

    some events missing

    no 2 way sync

    caldav calendar wouldn't add, can't verify account

    invalid password box kept popping up

    calendar not showing on list of calendars


    This is what I did, which has been mentioned above:

    deleted yahoo calendar account- I already had a normal yahoo calendar account, not caldav

    cleared safari history and cookies

    Turned off Ipod

    Turned back on

    Added just a yahoo caldav account- server name was just "yahoo"

    No problem with the password(so far)

    It synced up right away- all events there as on the computer

    2 way sync works also!


    I know this might not work for everyone, but just to let you know this worked for me.

    Thanks to all posters for their help!!!!

  • kenfrompeoria Level 1 (0 points)

    You can see I did essentially the same thing in my post Nov 5, 2011.  Well, today the problem came back and all I did was clear history and cookies and re-booted.  The problem went away!!  WoHoo!

    When adding your Yahoo account (after deleting it) use your and NOT your actual Yahoo address.


    For example my Yahoo address is My Yahoo username is patboy. I had to use when reregestering my Yahoo account. (and NOT


    Calendars now show up, and sync.

    Thank you!  Apple and yahoo need to take note.   This works.  Nothing else works.

  • gto-1965 Level 1 (0 points)

    I had the same problem with my Yahoo Calendar not updating with my iPhone after going to iOS5.  I got it to work by going to:



    Mail, Contacts, Calendars



    SMTP  (By default the Primary Server is set to Yahoo! SMTP Server, which is On)

    I went down to the Other SMTP Servers:

    selected the and turned that when On also.


    After that it started working.

    I was having the same problem and tried several of the suggestions within the responses here. What worked for me was to simply create a new mail account (with Calendar turned on) and rename it to something else. I then when through and updated all my events that were added since the syncing stopped and then deleted the old account. It seemed to work, it's now syncing with Yahoo again.

  • Gigglemite Level 1 (0 points)

    FYI, I am on the most recent version of IOS 5, and using the new update to Yahoo Calendar that was implemented a bit back.
