    I am trying to add a subscribed calendar on my iPhone and I keep getting an error saying "subscribed calendar account verification failed"

    I am using these links:

    http://ical.mac.com/ical/RedSox.ics
    http://ical.mac.com/ical/US32Holidays.ics
    http://ical.mac.com/ical/Movies.ics

    What I would really love is the Movie calendar added but it just would not work. Which I should be able to automatically subscribe to.

    Anyone have any Subscribed calendars that i could try?
    Or any suggestions to what I am doing wrong.

    I would very appreciate any help.

    I just subscribed to the RedSox one without any problems.

    Mail/Contacts/Calendar-> set up new account -> account type "Other" -> Subscribed calendar -> paste the URL (http://ical.mac.com/ical/RedSox.ics) in. It verifies and then you're done. ;)

    That's exactly what I did.
    I'm glad to have helped you subscribe to a calendar, but i'm not sure why it's not working for me.

    It took a minute or two for it to actually appear in MobileCal; have you checked it again? :confused:

    Well, I just tuned my iPhone off/on and it worked.

    Thanks for the effort of your help, and I hope those calendar links help anyone who needs them, i know I needed the Holiday list.
    It got kind of tedious adding them in for a whole year every year.
