Iphone 5 calendar sync problems with Exchange

I have 3 users with Iphone 5 that sync their mail, and contacts fine with our Exchange Server 2007 and back to their Outlook 2010 in there pc:s (Windows 7). What doesn't work is the sync of the calendar. If they put a new meeting in the calendar on their pc  it syncs fine to the phone, but in the other direction it doesn't work, no update of the meeting in the phone to the Outlook calendar.

Another user has a Iphone 4 and it works perfect 100% in both directions.

So this seems to be some special issue with Iphone 5.

What to do?

Try CalCheck tool to find if those users have Calendars for problems: http://blogs.technet.com/b/exchange/archive/2012/02/22/calcheck-the-outlook-calendar-checking-tool.aspx

The usual issue is the wrong default calendar is set, so when an appointment is added, it is added to a different calendar, not the Exchange Calendar.

The right calendar can be selected from within the appointment or the default calendar can be changed:

Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendar> Scroll down to Calendars and make sure the right Calendar is the default one.

If that doesn't resolve it - delete (disable the calendar from the Exchange account) and then add it back (turn it back on).

Alanhardisty,

I think you are on the spot. You remind me that at least one of the user has at least two calendars in her Outlook.
Thank's.

No doubt the Exchange Calendar was the 2nd one added, meaning the default will be the 1st one added and that is where all the appointments that are 'missing' will be.

If that is the case, you / they can edit each appointment (after changing the default calendar of course) and change the Calendar choice in the appointment, then save it and it will jump from one calendar to the other one and happiness will follow ;)

One user had wrong settings. The two others had two calendars.

Thanks for your support.
