H E L P!!!!!!!! I am in love with the S2 but this is a deal breaker if I can't figure this out. Set up the exchange account with no problems or synching issues. However...and this is a BIG however...A reminder for an event popped up, and I noticed I could not change the reminder for another time. Dug deeper and noticed that I could not edit ANY calendar events that came over from Outlook during the exchange sync. This is not acceptable.

So.......I came home and added a test event to the calendar again in Outlook. The event came up in my phone and again I could not edit it AT ALL. Creating an event on the S2 is fine, no problems with editing. I did notice that an event created in Outlook comes up on my S2 saying, "David (Organizer)" with a checked box next to it that cannot be unchecked. Any help would be appreciated.

Called Samsung today. They claim to "...know of the issue and are trying to find a solution". For now, use a third party exchange app like Exchange Touchdown as your calendar, and leave the calendar box unchecked when figuring your exchange account on the device.

Seconded for Touchdown - I switched because I use my calendar as a task tracking tool, and EVERY event from Outlook comes over to the stock calendar with a reminder - the notifications were driving me crazy.

I sync my Outlook calendar with a gmail calendar using Google's sync program. Then I display the gmail calendar on my phone. It seems to work just fine for me.
