Hi Aaron, thanks for the swift response.
I will try to be as clear as I can with the description of the problem I am having.
I am using the standard Calendar App on my phone, I add Events on a daily basis and am worried that the information I have on the phone could all be lost if I do not upload it to a Gmail Calendar.
I have a primary Gmail account and I have tried to sync my Gmail calendar to my phone calendar - no success. I have downloaded Google Calendar Sync, but, it all referes to Outlook as well.
My computer has Microsoft Office Starter installed - this does not include Outlook.
So ------- Can I sync with Gmail if you do not have Outlook - everwhere I have looked online gives me the impression that I have to have Outlook.
Whenever I try to sync my phone, I get this error message on my screen: Could not connect to Microsoft Outlook; error 2147221164.
I thought that maybe one way around this would be to copy the calendar files from my phone when my phone is connected as a hard drive to my computer, this however seems impossible as I can't even find the files.
Again, after some research, it would seem that these files are of a .vcs format and need to be sync'd with ............ Outlook Express!
So my basic question is: how can this be so complicated and is it that every user of an Andriod phone is forced to use Outlook for sync'ing their calendar?
If there is an alternative, I have not found it on the web, I am hoping that some of you guys with more experience with these Android can help.
I hear about this Cloud/Dropbox thing - is that the way to go - store it all virtually and then access the Cloud from my phone or computer when I want to look back through my calendar?
Please help if you can.
