We have an iphone 4 which we want to sync with our exchange server. e-mails are fine, but there seems to be a strange calandar situation with the iphone that I dont fully understand. There seems to be 2 calandars, one for the iphone and one for the PC.

If we have both selected for display on the iphone, any entries made default to orange, ie the iphone calandar. Whenever we sync the iphone wit the pc, we dont get any details on our pc.

Can anyone explain why / how this is like this and what we need to do to get all of the appointments, which are entered in the iphone clanadar, onto my PC outlook client?

And any information on why this rather starnge facility is in place. It probably has a perfectly reasonable explanation, but I can't for the life of me, fathom why it is like this.

Any help you can give would be appreciated.

Many thanks.

If you go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendar> then scroll down - you can choose your default calendar and you need to choose your Exchange Calendar.

Then go to Calendar and Choose the calendars to display and remove the one on the iPhone.

When initially setup, the iPhone will have a calendar and this can be removed when you setup an Exchange account, but the option might have been to keep the calendar and that as why you have two.

Thanks for that. Do you know how to get all of the appointments from the iphone calandar to the exchange one. as I have unknowingly been updating the iphone calandar in error, and have loads of things which I need to transfer / migrate, to save me having to manually enter them again?

Many thanks.

I have resolved thi snow, many thanks. You can just edit the appointment, and select the other calandar from the tick box option. It just transfers it over. Simple! Many thanks for your help.

Sorry - would have come back to you to respond to your question but I am in the middle of installing a new DSL router for a customer and the link is up and down.

Glad you are sorted and thanks for the points.
