The default calendar on my galaxy note 2 was not syncing correctly with my Gmail. I would go into settings, Google, and my Gmail and the calendar box was checked off. The little wheel was spinning and it would never stop spinning. I tried rebooting and I tried deleting the e-mail and adding it back on but no luck.

I went into the play store and downloaded Google calendar. This seems to have solved the problem since Google calendar syncs without a hitch but I was wondering if there is any way to get the default calendar to sync as well?

I keep getting a sync error as well. It has not synced since yesterday afternoon. I'm assuming it's an issue on Google's side as it did sync my calendar's at one point when I was setting up my phone.

I tried to use the Google Calendar App but so far I'm not liking it as well as the native Samsung calendar app. I like how the Samsung Calendar App has a small written description of the items that are on your calendar when you are viewing it by month.

I'm sure it will get sorted out on Google's end shortly. I hope.

I think I figured the syncing issue out.

First I went to Accounts - Google and stopped syncing my Calendar with Google. I then went to Application Manager - All Applications. Under there I Cleared Data for Calendar, Calendar storage and Calendar widget. Now, I'm only interested in syncing data from my Google Calendar so I had nothing to loose by clearing the data; but if you had other calendar data that was not syncing with Google then I assume you will loose that data by pressing the Clear Data button. After that I went back to Accounts - Google and reenabled syncing and all is well.

Hope this helped you.

Also the Samsung has a my calendar which doesn't correspond to anything in your Google calendar so won't synch. Finally the Samsung calendar doesn't offer any filtering so everything went to sync is also displayed unlike the Google Calendar.

TLDR; Samsung calendar is a piece of junk just root delete it and replace with googles

Hope this may help some people with this problem, When you add new event where it says Calendar make sure you choose your GMAIL Calendar not My Calendar.

To add to this:

1) Go into the Calendar app and then hit "Calendars" on top. Uncheck the "my calendar" box then save by hitting "done."
2) Go back into Calendar and hit the "+" to add event. Switch it to the Gmail account instead of "my calendar" and add a test event.
3) Go to the test event and delete it (or leave it if you don't mind).
4) Go back to the calendar app and add an event. It should now default to google instead of the samsung one from here on out.

Note: You can switch the prior events created by the default samsung app by going into them and switching the calendar to the gmail account. I would do this prior to doing the above steps to avoid repeating them.

Hope this helps anyone who finds it!
