old calendar entries, might have to switch to Apple after 5 days
How do I get my Thunderbolt to download all past appointments from my Google calendar (2003) to my new device? it only show old appts back2 months. This could be a deal breaker for me to leave the Android fold after 5 days. I hope not!

But it ain't pretty. And if you screw it up, you could lose your entire historical data. Be careful.

Go to accounts, then ur google account and turn off all sync.
Go to applications>manage applications and click the "all" tab up top.
Find the calendar app and the calendar storage app. Tap them and then hit clear cache and clear data in both.
Go to settings>date and time and unchecked the option for set date and time automatically.
Manually adjust the date and time on the phone to Jan 1st 2003 (you did say u wanted to go back to 2003 right?)
Now go back to accounts and recheck all sync options in ur Google account. Let it sync for a while then you can go back into time and date and check the auto time and date and do another sync.
You should see all hose events populate into ur calendar shortly. It may be a slight delay after sync.
Let me know if it works for ya....

I like how someone finds one little thing they dont like then comes here saying "im going to apple!"
We are very happy to help with a problem here but, we really could care less if you want to get an outdated locked down piece of junk.
have fun and good luck

I was so excited to see your suggestion. Thank you! However, for some reason, unless I did something wrong, it still won't pull down my older calendar events. after following your instructions and resyncing with the device back dated to 2003, the spinning sync wheel goes for about 30 seconds and then stops spinning and then disappears. Then when I go back into the application manager and select calendar storage it is showing that the total data storage is 744KB. Can you offer any other help please?

Also, even though it's not a solution, if you need to just look up an old appt, you can log in to your gmail account with the browser and select 'More' at the top for the calendar. You can't search or even jump to a month (you have to scroll back with the < button), but you can see all the data.

Like the OP, I'm coming from an iPhone. It's taking a bit to understand what the limitations are with Android as I has learned how to do things with iOS and it's limitations. Just needing to relearn how to do the same things.
Each OS has it's workarounds. This one of not being able to get calendar data in the Calendar app seems kinda silly.
That said, I used to use the native iPhone Mail, Contact, and Calendar connecting to my Gmail data via their MS Exchange connection. Maybe this has something to do with it working on the iPhone but not Android as we connect via our regular login of our gmail UN and password, rather than having to configure any Exchange data/IMAP settings.
Dunno. Haven't tried to reconfigure everything.
