Old calendar recurring items not being retrieved in PIMList.items()?

I have a user that has set up a lot of recurring calendar items.  I wrote a small program that looks at every recurring item and prints out its details.  He says that all of the older items (set up more than a few months ago) do not show up in the printed out list but those same items do continue to show up in the BlackBerry calendar.

 

Has anybody seen this or have an explanation?   Ideas?

How long are the items recurring for?  Are the older items still listed in future dates?

 

What BlackBerry model and handheld software version are you testing on?  How are you printing them out?

1. Items are recurring forever.

 

2. The older items are still listed on the calendar as future dates but do not show up in the printed out list.

 

3. Using Sprint Pearl, OS version 4.3.0.  

 

4. Printing them out to the log.  The user has been sending me the log.

Are these all day events?  If so, please see the second issue posted in this thread.

Re: Old calendar recurring items not being retrieved in PIMList.items()?

No, I checked with the user and none of them are all-day events.

 

I think this problem may be related to the fact the user has multiple calendars and it's possible that the missing items are on different calendar.  Unfortunately, as I've reported here, I can only see one calendar on his device.

 

I see your comment this morning about multiple programmatic calendar access only being allowed in 4.6.  I guess we'll need to check again when we can use 4.6 on his Pearl.

 

Thanks for your help.
