    I've just spent the afternoon in front of my computer, and with my husband's Samsung Galaxy S4 as well as my own Samsung Galaxy S4. I finally figured out the "Sync Steps" that work for me by doing the following:
    From your "Apps" icon:
    1. If you are using a widget for a calendar, don't use it if you want to sync. (From the "widgets" -at the top of your screen- Do NOT use the widget called "Calendar (Mini today) 4 x 2." I had been using this, but there is no way to sync it, -that I could discover). To repeat, do not use the widget as a calendar.
    2. From the "Apps" (within your apps icon - at the top of your screen) DO use the app called "Calendar", (shows a 31 for calendar) .
    To Add or delete your items on your calendar. 2 important things:
    1. When adding an item (tap +) , make sure you choose the calendar that you want to use. (tap on green arrow pointing to the right to open up your choices.) My husband and I use a joint calendar, so I make sure I'm always adding to our joint calendar. Others may just be using their own calendar, so you would tap on your email account name calendar.
    4. Then, TAP SAVE
    5. THEN, you must also tap lower left corner of your phone (menu button) to then be able to TAP SYNC.
    (Maybe there is a setting where this happens automatically, but I'm not going to take the time to figure out that setting, if any. When I make a change on the calendar, I want it to to effect NOW, so that I can trust what I'm seeing on the calendar).

    To Delete,
    1. tap on the item you want to delete from your calendar.
    2. Tap menu button, then tap delete. The calendar will close.
    3. Tap on the calendar to open it. You will see your item deleted, but now you must tap the menu button (lower left corner), and tap Sync.

    Hope that this helps all who have been saying too many swear words like I have.
    These steps help me sync my device to my husband's, as well as my desktop computer.

    I just realized that for google calendar to be available in the stock calendar, it first has to be activated in "google calendar"-app!

    1: Open "calendar" app (google calendar)
    2: Options --> Calendars to be shown
    3: Add your new (or old) calendar
    4: Open stock calendar and the new calendar will be available

    Whoa - I replied to a post and after login it gave me a reply box - I entered my reply to thank the poster BUT it brought me to a different forum! WTF?

    The poster said to: Open Calendar on phone> Menu> Calendars> Display (at bottom)> UNCHECK My Calendars! Make sure your Gmail acct. is there and IS checked. Important: Click on DONE at top!

    Now set up a test event in calendar> then Menu> Sync.
    Go to PC and open Google.Calendar.com
    If the new event is not there look upper right for MORE> Refresh and the event should show up.

    You can retest this by going to the phone calendar, open the test event> Menu> Delete>Menu> Sync to make sure it syncs to Google Calendar.

    Go to PC and open Google Calendar> if event has not been deleted> MORE> Refresh and the event should be GONE.

    This was for the original poster: Your my hero now! I have worked on this for hours and days. I could enter an event on phone calendar and it would not sync up to Google Calendar BUT I could enter an event on either Google Calendar or my Nexus 7 tablet and it WOULD sync the event to the Galaxy S4.

    No other forum or poster had the answer but YOU DID AND IT WORKS AGAIN!! Thank you very much for posting your solution. Big ol' Android Robot Smile to you. You rock.

    The best thing is simply to download the google calendar app from the app store and use it instead, it is much smarter.
