    I am wondering if this is possible. Google Calendar has the feature to add "interesting calendars" to yours, such as "US Holidays" and sport events. I've added "US Holidays" to my Google calendar. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to sync with iPhone by default. I would like to know if there's a way to have such interesting calendars show up on the iPhone.

    FYI I use iPhone's Exchange feature to sync Google mail and calendar. I've tried IMAP too, to no avail.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I've been trying this as I wanted my football teams fixtures synched to my phone. Everything I tried has failed. Setting up via Exchange, imap and synching via only syncs my own calender and not the "other".
    A guide I read talked about going into the settings of the other calender and looking for an iCal link and importing it into iCal, but there's no such link within these "Other" I'm not sure it can be done.

    I've now found a similar calender on (here's a link to the US Holidays - which may help.

    I don't believe Google's sync API allows for these "other" calendars to sync.

    Setup gmail as an exchange account on the iPhone and check Calendar
    Open Safari on the iPhone
    Go to
    Select your device
    Check the box next to the Calendars you want to sync to the phone and then click Save.

    I would recommend Pocket Informant. The free version sync with all my calendars.
    For some reason I just can't access It said my new iPT is not a compatible device.
