Calendar Problem- Help needed

Hi:

 

I have a google calendar but I did not use a Gmail account to set up the calendar. Instead, I used a pop account from my isp service provider- who is cogeco.ca

 

I am trying to sync my google calndar to my Blackberry built in calendar. I can't seet to do it.

 

Can someone give me the steps and the server addresses I would need to use.

 

Thanks so much. I appreciate your help and time.

Oops! Somehow the actual link that I pasted got messed up, while the text was correct...very interesting indeed. Let's try this one:

Re: Calendar Problem- Help needed

Where it says "

  1. In the Server Address field, enterhttps://www.google.com/calendar/dav/<emailaddress>/events  where <emailaddress> is the Google email address.

I don't have a google/gmail address. I have an ordinary email address from my isp. That's what I am using . Is that what I should be using in this step?

 

Thank-you

Ummm..."CIDAV"? Usually, it's CALDAV or CARDDAV, but CIDAV? In any event, it would seem like the response is clear...whatever credentials you are providing are not correct, and are being rejected by Google.

To use Google calendar, you typically have to have a google email address, for that is what goole uses to authenticate all of their services. If your ISP has some sort of relationship with google to provide, via your ISP, some google services, then you will need to inquire with your ISP as to how to use those, for that is a rather special situation, not covered by any of the normal methods. If your ISP does not have this special relationship with google, and you wish to use google for calendar, then you would need to create a google account.

Re: Calendar Problem- Help needed

Thanks. That probably explains why it is not working. I can view the caledar from any web browser, but I can't get it tio sync with the BB

 

Thanks for your help. I appreciate it

Re: Calendar Problem- Help needed

I think that I do not understand. Your calendar is hosted at google, and you can view it via any web browser, but you do not have a google account at all? That may well then indicate some special relationship between your ISP and google, for which you need your ISP to then provide you with the proper instructions.

You are welcome, and good luck!
