I just got the Storm and am having problems syncing the Calendar. At first it would sync the tasks, contact and memos but not the calendar. After deleting a few things, CICAL I believe, it started to sync. Under Options > Default Services I have 3 drop down options under Calendar (CICAL): me@home, me@work and Facebook. If I choose either my work or home e-mail address, when I do the sync it wants me to delete all of the existing calendar entries in Outlook. How do I set it up so that it will add all of the entries on my BB to my Outlook and any new Outlook entries to my BB.
I have read many of threads on this but am unable to figure it out. Some other info:
v220.127.116.11 (platform 18.104.22.168)
Any help would be great.

In your Desktop Manager > Sync settings, select the configuration option and set the sync to "Computer Wins" so that the Outlook items will transfer over.
You can leave the [CICAL] Facebook service book where it is. This has nothing to do with this issue.
In your Options > Advanced > Default services, do select the email address profile you wish to use for your calendar.

I tried both and to no avail. I then deleted all 3 CICALs and it still didnt work.
When I was syncing it says "Reading from Device Calendar Record xxx of 118 Records"
then "Reading from Microsoft Outlook Calendar Record xxx of 849 Records"
It then says:
The following changes from Calendar Device will be applied to your Microsoft Outlook data in Calendar: 56 Deletion(s) 17 Addition(s)
The following changes from Calendar Microsoft Outlook will be applied to your device data in Calendar 17 Changes(s)
The problem is I dont want it to delete any entries, I want them all on both the Storm Calendar and the Outlook Calendar. I had no problem doing this on my old BB.

I had the same exact problem and I followed joecool's advice and went one step further to delete all the CICAL (Yahoo, Facebook etc.)service book entries and then whadda ya know...next time I sync'd...everything perfect - back to syncing with my Outlook. Thanks joecool!

hi there, i have taken out all the CICAL out of my storm and it synched perfectly afterwards. but then, the next day i can't sync my calendar again and this is because the Facebook CICAL suddenly appeared again! so i went and deleted it again - and have cleaned all the CICAL again from my service book - but it still does not sync. anyone knows what'd happened?

I have since found 'Select Calendars' > 'Calendar Options' revealing Device Default (green) & my email account (blue). That seems to point me to where the colors are coming from, but I don't know how it got that way, what it means or how to remedy so that the appointments show up in my Outlook Calendar.
Looked in Advanced Options>Service Book for the Facebook CICAL but only find Facebook VPL [BrowserConfig]. CICAL & CMIME are my email account.
It's a GOOD life,
