    I had this problem on Ice Cream Sammich.. Sprint rolled out the update a month or so for Jelly Bean.. still have the problem.
    Ran Ex2010 SP2 and the latest rollup other than the last which was an epic fail (I think 4, and 5 was removed from MS..).. still no help.

    Given that MS is screwy in that the only coexistence path from 2010 to 2013 is at 2010 SP3.. and SP3 isn't due until about June.. I see no help in sight by that. Maybe our Office 365 account will do the deal..

    I have same problem on Galaxy S3 running 4.1.1 with the built in calendar app. So instead I use Business Calendar (free or $4.99 at Google Play) and the problem is solved.

    Hi,
    This is the problem I got: I can't edit appointment created from Outlook (on exchange server) using my Galaxy S3. I can only edit appointment created from the Galaxy S3.
    Now, I can. The PRIMARY email address setting on the Exchange Server was not the same as the one I set on the Galaxy S3. (My account on Exchange set for 2 emails address and one is primary). So, on the S3, you can't edit appointment from other people and if your email address on the S3 is not the same as the primary on Exchange, the S3 see the appointment created on Outlook like an appointment created by someone else.

    Regards,

    Dany

    I have the same issue. Can you clarify, where these email addresses are found? How would your phone be sync'ing with your Exchange server with different email addresses?

    My Outlook account is set with 2 email addresses (SMTP) : DGosselin@... and Dany.Gosselin@... . I see them when I create new email and add my email address. I right click on my email address and select Outlook properties. In the last panel, I see 2 SMTP email addresses. One of them is the primary address. You have to use the same on the S3. To solve my problem, I remove my email account and create it again with my other email address (the primary address).

    Does the business calendar still allow syncing with my exchange calendar at work? Sorry to be so dense.

    Thanks

    I'm not entirely sure, but it appears that Business Calendar syncs with the original Android Calendar that comes with the phone. The Android Calendar ought to sync with anything you tell it to. Of course, everything seems to be smoother if you center your operations on a Google Calendar (there are ways to sync that to Outlook but since I gave up Outlook, I'm not up to date on the best way to do it).

    Aha - here is the answer from the Business Calendar Help files: "if you want to use calendars that can be synced e.g. with Google Calendar or Exchange, you have to add the corresponding account in your Android system settings and turn on the "sync calendar" option in the details of the added account." Just be sure, when selecting calendars within the app, to avoid "my calendar", which is inside the phone, and instead pick the google and/or exchange calendars. That way you should always be synced.

    This solved my problem with not being able to edit exchange entries from my nexus s! Thanks so much Dany. Just a note:

    It doesn't matter if you have one or more accounts. If the email address spelling is for some reason any different, you are not recognised as the same user so you are not allowed to edit! My corporate email has two possible spellings, so I had the 'other' spelling on the mobile. When I changed it to the other one, it worked so nicely I got tempted to edit even past events!

    Many thanks to Dany again!

    The clalendar on my Samsung S5 has stopped letting me enter events and change the date and the time. When I go enter an event and then change the time it won't let me. I noticed that the year was 1970. How do I fix that?

    You have to no only use the same spelling, but also the exact same case for the characters. E.g. John.Doe@company.com versus john.doe@company.com. While I didn't test this, I'd imagine using the primary email address (versus one of the aliases) is required as well.
