    I've been trying to add subscription calendars to my iPhone by emailing the links to myself as suggested on several sites. However everytime I tap the link to subscribe I get a 'unable to subscribe to calendar on google'. My Pre on the other hand has had no issues with pulling these calendars

    Any ideas on what I'm doing wrong?

    PS I use Google Sync for contacts, mail and my main...non subcribed calendar if it makes any difference

    Yah, I just tried it myself and it looks like something has changed (either on Google's end or Apple's end). It's not really surprising, it was always sort of a hack at best. If you're just trying to subscribe to a calendar of Google's, you should try using one of the other formats. I think Google has XML, iCal, and another format available. Try using those and putting in the related URL when setting up a "subscribed calendar" instead of a CalDAV formatted calendar.

    I have my google calendars on my iphone without a prblem..

    Do you have your gmail account synced with your iphone? I think that was what did it. You first have to set up your gmail account on the mail app, then connect to the calender using the info given on the linked post

    Yup, have had my GMail account synced since day one using Google Sync. I just sorted out the issue but had to go into iCal, extract the link from there, email it to myself before i could get my subscriptions

    Google's link and the links in that thread simply wouldn't work

    *Shrug* Go figure
