calendar

hi there

I wanto to restore the calendar on my bb

need to get rid of the "facebook" calendar (have deleted fb as an application, yet the calendar is still there)

and what is even more strange dates do not correspond with correct days (i.e. september 22, 2013 is a sunday, on my calendar it appears as Monday....quite confusing)

 

any help would be appreciated

tx

Re: calendar

Hey alecors,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

You can remove the Facebook calendar by going to Options>Advanced Options>Service Book and there will be a Facebook (CICAL) listed.  Highlight it and press Menu>Delete.

 

Then the calendar will be removed and you can proceed with the restoral and let me know if the dates are still off.

 

Cheers.

Re: calendar

hello viciousferret tx for your reply. Got rid of the FB calendar, that's good. Re calendar, I just realized dates are off only when calendar viewing is per "week". When I view the calendar as "day" or month" dates and days correspond, they are correct! Do you still suggest I restore my calendar? How do I restore it? appreciate your help tx alessandro

Re: calendar

I just posted with the same problem.

 

Yes this removes the "Send: Facebook" field, but it converted all of those entries to "Default", so when I sync with my desktop, the device wants to add 300 entries to my Outlook calendar.

 

Is there a way to delete duplicate entries before syncing with desktop?

 

Thanks

Help! Alternate calendar eternal loop

Here is my sad story so far:

1. I installed facebook but deselected all blackberry connectivity -- I just want to post from my BB.

2. My device duplicated my entire calendar (300+ entries) as an alternate calendar: "send: facebook"

3. I implement the advice from ViciousFerret above and delete Facebook CICAL. Duplicate entries revert from "send: facebook" to "send: default"

4. Next sync, device adds 300+ entries to my outlook calendar -- the entries that were "send: facebook"

5. Next sync, my device calendar has reverted to "send: facebook" and the sync is trying to populate 600+ new entries (my original calendar plus the duplicates created by deleting Facebook CICAL.

 

Help! help! I'm caught in an infernal loop!

Re: Help! Alternate calendar eternal loop

My problem is that something is re-creating Facebook [CICAL] in "Service Books".

 

Not sure when this happens... "auto off" and "auto on" are my top contenders, but it happens even if I never launch Facebook.

 

P.S. When syncing after deleting Facebook [CICAL] in "Service Books" I now ALWAYS get a syncronization error, but if I resync immediately the rest of the syncronization executes correctly. The error does not occur if I duplicate all the "Send: Facebook" entries (not that I'll make that mistake again).

Solved problem by:

  1. Delete Facebook [CICAL] in Options > Device > Advanced > Service book
  2. Sync with desktop
  3. Full power off device and do a battery pull
