View Full Version : iPhone persists on showing deleted calendar events

I set up my iCal on my PowerBook, and synced it with MobileMe. This successfully synced the calendar events on the MobileMe calendar, and on the iCal on my G5 desktop, and on my iPhone. Great.

Then I deleted some events in iCal on the PowerBook, and synced that iCal to MobileMe once more. The events were duly deleted on the MobileMe calendar, and on my G5's iCal, but after an hour my iPhone insists on showing the deleted events. Even if I turned calendar syncing off on the iPhone, then start it again, it persists in showing the old events. This is crazy because they don't exist on any of my iCals anywhere!

Anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how I can fix this? :confused:

Are these entries that you have deleted repeating events. Because mine does the same but only when deleting individual entries of repeating events.

Yes! I've taken a look and they are all repeating events. Do you know what may be the answer to the problem?

I've been having the same problem. The only temporary solution that I found was to go into iTunes while sync and select which calendars I wanted. However, it would be nice to know how to get rid of old calendars in iCal.

Anyone ever find a solution to this problem? This is driving me absolutely nuts and I have deleted these old events dozens of times. There has to be a solution to this bug.

This is a persistent problem on the iPhone only. The only thing I have been able to do is manually delete these reoccurring event directly on the iPhone itself. Apple needs to fix this....

I've been manually deleting them on my iphone as well and they still keep coming back - it's maddening.

Be sure to submit problems like this to http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html . This is where Apple gets a lot of its "future product direction" from.

You can go into iPhone/settings/calendar and choose sync:
events 2 weeks back
1 month back
3 months back
6 months back
All events

This at least eliminates how many events you have to manually delete on the iPhone itself... Hope this helps :)
