    Does anyone know how to fix that? First they were random, then some changed to black, now 3/5 are brown.

    does it affect functionality?

    my calendars show as:

    Red - Calendar (iPhone)
    Brown - xxxxxxxxxx@gmail.com (Gmail Calendar)
    Blue - Birthdays

    No. My iPhone OCD just severely kicks in with stuff like this.

    I can't check because I'm using MobileMe to sync my calendars, so don't have any options to amend the name or details.

    Change it on your Mac? If you use iCal, then it'll have gone brown there too, if not, resync your iPhone?

    I like having mine colour coordinated. I'd have them all to be the one colour.

    I'm not sure how to sync google with iCal and my phone. It just doesn't work right :(.

    If you go to Calendar on your iPhone then press Calendars at the top left, does it give you any options to amend them?

    I don't use Google Calendars so don't know if you have the ability to change the colours.

    Though, this might help.

    Unless it's changed I didn't think you could sync the colors with Gmail Calendar. That's one of the reasons I don't use it (that and the AWFUL colors it uses).

    Maybe I should just switch to iCal. Can I wirelessly sync to iCal without MobileMe?

    Not yet.. though there was rumours of Apple providing a free version of MobileMe which included Calendar and Address Book syncing.

    Amazon still has a deal on MobileMe. The "old version" code is as good as the "new" version.

    That's what my family did. It allows us to sync our calendars and it works very well.

    If you want to change the gmail color dot, log into your email on a computer, go to calendars , on the left side there is a color panel, select any color you like, hope that helps.:D
