For the longest time I was using nuevasync to synchronize the many shared calendars I have on Google Calendar with my Nokia E71 built-in calendar. That is until nuevasync decides to go commercial. So since then I was unable to synchronize my phone’s calendar with my online calendar.
Then just as I am about to give up on Nokia and its incompatibility and lack of useful apps, I chance upon a forum post who suggest that Ovi is able to do multiple calendar sync!
So this was what I did
- Setup Ovi Sync (using SyncML and not the clunky Mail for Exchange)
(The steps include receiving a SMS that will automatically setup the Sync Profile, quite seamless.)
- Import my private Google Calendar iCal address into Ovi Calendar.
- Sync using the “Sync” app under “Tools -> Sync” in my phone
- Voila! Finally I’m whole again!
All these would have been easier if I have an Android phone. I prefer HTC with QWERTY keyboard. So far only HTC Desire Z has that. >.<|| Come on HTC, launch a new QWERTY model already!
