Google Calendar Fail? I hope not
So it populates my calendar, but fails to bring over the "other"calendars I signed up for...these include sports calendars (Detroit Tigers, USA World Cup, etc).
Is there something I'm doing wrong here? On the EVO I go the option to add calendar and nothing shows up...I've even went on my netbook and unsubsrcibed and then re-subscribed and that did not work. I really would like ALL my calendars to be sent over...please someone help if at all possible.
Thanks for everyone who has assisted me so far with other things, this forum is priceless.

No, still not working. I go to setting within the calendar to see "all calendars" and they are not showing up. Is it something to do with these sports calendars and the fact that they can't be shared in this way? Its the ONLY issue I'm having with this phone and I wish I could figure it out. Here's hoping someone has an answer for me...thanks

It doesn't seem to be the phone, it's the calendars on Google. It looks like some of them are incomplete.
I tried to subscribe to the Cubs calendar and it's only picking up like one game per week on the phone or the website. However, all the Blackhawks games show up on the calendar fine.

I wonder if in the case of the World Cup calendars it is because Google is getting the info directly from Fifa and the coding there won't sync. I did find that by cliking on the game in my calendar I am given the option to copy the event to my Google calendar. Not ideal but that's what I did for the three teams I am following this Cup.

ok i think i found a answer if you go to calendar settings and them click on one of the calendars not syncing like world cup or baseball you will see toward the bottom that there is a small button that says HTML i think html calendars cant sync to ur evo or any android phone but if they have xml or ical icons they can sync
if you want a world cup calendar that syncs here you go
just make sure you are logged in on ur computer to google calendars and click the google calendar button at bottom right of the page and then go to ur evo and then to account s and sync settings and find ur main google account and press sync now then go back to ur calendar and u got world cup calendar on ur evo
here is world cup calendar

ok to be able to sync you google apps domain calendar as well you will need to enable Google Sync on your google domain
then you will have to add the google domain account you want to sync
use the Mail app and choose Exchange account and put in your login info then press Manual Setup and then on that screen delete where it had your domain as the server and type in m.google.com
then check the ssl checkbox and press next it will authenticate then it will ask you if you want to sync your calendar, email and contacts for that google domain account i chose just to sync the calendar since i am using the Gmail app for the email on that google domain account
if you have any other questions let me know
