My calendar syncing has been working great, then all of a sudden yesterday I notice my appts are showing up twice on my calendar. Also, I can't get any of my calendar entries to delete off my Blackberry!! I have:
1)deleted things off my BB and off my Gmail calendar online(I don't use Outlook) to try and delete unneeded items
2)I've tried syncing over and over again but my BB won't update with the correct info
3) I took off the auto sync feature and set the BB to manual sync only, then tried to resync just the handheld to delete all handheld calendar events
4)I moved ahead in the calendar on my BB to a date in the future, then tried to delete all prior events
None of these solutions have worked. Can anyone help????
Solved! Go to Solution.

You've been busy!
Do you have one good calender with your events listed with out duplicates?

On your BB go to calender. Get in AGENDA VIEW, go to a future date ( I used Jan 2009) WHILE IN AGENDA VIEW) OPTIONS - DELETE PRIOR. This should clear the BB calender. Set Google back to normal sync and try it again
Please let me know how it goes!

One more thing to add,
whenever I try to open one of the "old items" that supposedly has been deleted on my handheld, I can't open it. I get a dialogue box that says "Appointment deleted externally. Changes will be lost and the viewer closed." Also, there is a small alarm bell icon next to these old appointments.

Try a battery pull, while the phone is ON, leave it out for a minute, replace it and let the device reboot 1-3 min.
See if the bb calendar has been erased
Let me know!

OMG...it worked!! Sheesh, something so simple is the solution sometimes. I'm new to the Blackberry world, and if this were my desktop pc or my laptop, I've have Ctrl-Alt-Deleted without a 2nd thought.

I'm using the Blackberry Pearl 8130 and am having the same problem (getting the message "appointment deleted externally...") when trying to view a sync'ed appointment from google calendar.
But doing the battery pull and reboot is not working for me. I've done it a couple of times, waiting a few minutes with battery out each time.
I'm using the latest version of google sync (4.6). I'm also having other problems with G-sync (entries made on BB don't sync to online), so I'm sure this is part of the issue. But the battery thing seemed to work for other BB users sync'ing with google.
