Best online calendars to go with iPhone / Android-base Phone
I'm a Verizon customer and am about to get either the new iPhone or a Android based phone!
I want this phone to be where all my calendars (kids events, home event and work events) are synchronized. Please give your opinions on the best "online calendar" combination with "smart phones".
My most likely choice is "Google's Calendar" with the new Verizon iPhone, but I want to hear different opinions. (i.e. Android Phone & Google Calendar, or Mobile Me & iPhone, etc ...)
What are your experience synchronizing online calendars with phones.

Google Calendar, especially if you have multiple calendars. However, it works best when you set it up as a CalDAV account.
I wrote a tutorial for setting up Google Calendars on iPhone as CalDAV. View it here: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=724114

Agree with the other posts. Google calendar can sync seamlessly with iphone calendar as well as Android's one.
Also you can sync google calendar with a PC or Mac using outlook or ical.

Another vote for Google calendars.
1) Totally free
2) Synchs perfectly
3) Online version lets you manage your calendars from your phone or from their online calendar app, or via Googles own dedicated calendar app if you prefer. Ubiquitous access is a must.
4) Calendar invites cross-platform compatible for Outlook users (big plus for keeping personal and business accounts on same calendar app on your iPhone).
5) If you use a Mac, works GREAT with iCal
Honestly, I no longer see the value of Exchange-based calendar management. We've now moved our entire enterprise email/calendar over to Google Apps and abandoned Exchange. There's no need for it any longer.
And I love how my wife and I can stay in synch with both the family obligations and my business appointments. She manages the family calendar, I manage my business appointments, but we can both see each others' events so she knows whether or not I'm going to be available for some family function. I'm on an iPhone, she's on a Droid, we have multiple iPhone/Android phones across the family and everyone stays in perfect synchronization with one another...invites, calendars, calendar availability, etc. Google now owns the calendar space as far as I'm concerned.

Daily schedule notification with Google Calendar
Under my Google Calendar "Notification" settings, it says the "Daily Agenda" is sent out to my email at 5AM of my local time zone. (No selectable change option here.)
What I was hoping to do is somehow get it sent out the night before like my "Airset" calendar does. Otherwise I need to keep on using Airset.
I like an email giving me a heads up to upcoming events sent out eve before.
