    I'm having a very annoying issue with my new iPad (my only gripe so far). I use my calendar extensively on my computer and I'm hooked up to my companies Exchange account. I like keeping my calendars separate using different colors for my personal appts and my work meetings. As most users do, I have my personal calendar set to blue (for example), a misc calendar set to green and then my work calendar set to red.

    Now, my Mac based calendars sync via MobileMe and back down to my iPhone and iPad just fine in the same colors, but on my iPad it makes my Exchange calendar blue as well, so my two main calendars are the same. I cannot find any setting anywhere on the iPad to fix this.

    I DO NOT have this problem on my iPhone for some reason, it sets my Exchange calendar red as would be expected.

    Does anyone have any clue how to fix this? I would greatly appreciate any insight!

    Same issue here. I tired a bunch of things and the Cal is still blue. One interesting thing is that if I add an additional calendar in outlook, that calendar is red, but there is no way to force the main "Calendar" to be red. I am going to send apple a bug report on this and hopefully it is fixed in the next update.

    Exactly -- glad I'm not the only one with this issue and that I wasn't simply overlooking a setting somewhere.

    This isn't a deal breaker but quite annoying since I have so many personal and work appts. I'll send a note to Apple and hope this gets some decent priority in their queue. Shouldn't be too hard to fix I wouldn't think.
