I have the motorola cable, latest mobile phone tools software v300, Outlook
2003. Win XP, USB cable..

Everything installed and ran fine. I set the sync software to always
prefer to use outlook values in case of conflict.

I synced with outlook and the calendar antries all appeared on the mobile


Now I modified one of the calendar entries on the mobile phone - just
changed the text a little.


The entry then disappeared from outlook!

Now the interesting thing.

I cleared the entries from the phone, set up the calendar entry again,
re-synced. Now the phone shows two entries on that day. Basically the
entry hadn't been deleted from outlook, just made invisible.

More on this

The enty that disappeared from the calendar is still there if I change to a
tabular view of the diary. If I edit the entry and save it, it reappears in
the normal calendar view.

However next time I go to the celndar view it has gone again.

In other words all screwed up. This is quite a bad bug - I hope motorola can
fix it! I use my phone as personal organiser while I am out and the sync
feature is really important to me.

Just letting you know that you are not alone. I have been working with
this bug for about a month, just clicking on '31 day' view, then
selecting 5 day view again and tada, the synced events appear.

recently this hasn't been working. The events i plug into my v525
phone, will not show at all in outlook calendar, except the reminders.
I get the popup reminder box for all events that I have synced.

I have contacted moto support and if i get any reply, I will let you
know. If you find any fix, could you do the same?
