    Has anyone experienced a bug in iOS 4.1 with the calendar app? When you are in List-view and force-close the calendar app or reboot the phone and then re-open the calendar app and there's nothing there in list-view until you switch to a different view such as day or month view, then the list-view gets populated again?

    I should add that my calendar is synced via Exchange server.

    I've not got this bug on iPhone 4. Calendar list displays correctly on a relaunch after the process you described.

    I have the same problem after the latest update (iPhone 4 + iOS 4.1).

    Yep, does it on mine too - iPhone 4 on 4.1, syncing with iCal via iTunes.

    To tell the truth, I probably never would have noticed this bug since I rarely use List view...my calendar is always set to Month view.

    I thought I was going crazy at first… I even did a complete wipe of the iPhone and started from new again but it's still happening.

    Yes I have and suggest that we all do the same so it can be fixed in the next update.

    Here is the feedback link: http://www.apple.com/feedback/iphone.html

    Same glitch here, would have never noticed it without this thread because I always use the monthly view.

    Sorry to bring it to your attention :) I'm now trying out Day-view and seeing if I like that. Unfortunately, I have too many appts. throughout the day for Month-view to be really useful for scheduling as it only shows 2 appts. at a time.

    Anyway, thanks to all that are submitting the bug back to Apple :D

    My 3GS now displays appointments in purple, was always blue before 4.1.

    Anyone else?

    Mine too but it doesn't bother me. I think you can fix it if you have multiple accounts and turn on/off the calendars in different orders will give you different colors.

    I know if you have MobileMe synced with your Calendar, you can change the color in MobileMe and the iPhone should change to that color once you sync it with iTunes again.

    I have the same issue as the OP and I only sync my calendar with Exchange. No MobileMe here.

    May be a bit OT here, but is there any way to change the color of the Calendar, 4.1 changed the colors and no i have a very pastel theme in my calendar.

    I can't reproduce this bug.

    I go to list view, force quit iCal, reopen list view, the list view takes about 3-4 seconds to populate, but it does work.

    (MobileMe, iPhone4, 4.1 GM.)

    MobileMe? Change the colors in iCal on your Mac, and the change will sync across. (Not sure if it works on PC, or non MobileMe cal's.)

    Problem "fixed" here. I see the problem only if I don't have a connection that allows syncing. If I have access to the server the calendar repopulates on its own in a few seconds.
