    As many beta testers know, the calendar in iOS 5b2 is pretty much unusable. I'm a calendar warrior and use it frequently; these are the three bugs I've discovered thus far. I have not seen them grouped together in one place yet, so I hope this helps other beta users.

    1. Calendar hangs indefinately in Month View.
    2. All calendar accounts must be turned off and on again to restore calendar functionality.
    3. "Availability" option is missing for new appointments.

    I found a really annoying one today that was bad enough to make me go back to 4.3.3:

    It seems like iOS is continually refreshing calendar entries (exchange and MobileMe ones anyway), while the calendar is open, but it does it by deleting and re-adding them. The net result is that if you open an entry to view its details, it will kick you back to the main calendar screen in a second or two!

    Strange. I have iOS beta 2 installed and I'm not seeing any of these problems.

    For what it's worth, after restoring the beta 2 firmware, I restored from a recent backup in iTunes that contained all my mail/calendar/contacts accounts from beta 1. Did you guys create the accounts from scratch in beta 2?

    Yes, actually I wound up doing that to see if that helped things. Cleared out all old accounts, rebooted iPad, then added them one at a time, launching the calendar between each account. No improvement.

    I have Exchange, MobileMe, and iCloud calendars enabled.

    I assume you are filing these bug reports with Apple, right?

    Otherwise there's no point in listing these.

    Of course. I listed them here for those who may be frustrated and wondering if they have found a bug.

    Sure there's a point. There's nothing wrong with discussing the bug to see if it can be reproduced before submitting it to Apple.
