Synchronize Google Calendar With Your Phone

GCalSync is a Java application that can be installed on your mobile phone and allows you to synchronize your phone's calendar with Google Calendar.

Supported phones: BlackBerry, Nokia (6230i, 6680, N70 and others), Motorola (A780, A45, E1000), Sony Ericsson (K750, W800, Z520 and others).

I tried it with my Sony Ericsson K750i, but it couldn't connect to google.com. Does it work on your mobile phone?

Update: There's a new version of GCalSync and the application is now open-source.

  2. I would much rather have a Windows application running on my laptop to do this. I'm currently automatically synchronizing between Outlook and my Nokia 6630, and it works great.

    Does anyone know a Windows application which would sit in the background and syncronize Google Calendar over Bluetooth?

  3. hm.. I tried this app out tonight on my Nokia 6682 with no luck. I'm a cingular user in the US though, perhaps there are some limitations.

  6. Doesn't seem to work on my Nokia 6230i yet. I've e-mailed the developer about it. Does anyone know of a desktop application that syncs Google Calendar with my mobile phone?

  7. It 'appears' to work ok on my Nokia 6680, going through all the right looking negotiations with Google Calendar login, etc. But then no events actually get downloaded from my Google calendar, and events it says are uploaded from my phone don't actually appear in my Gcal.Gcalsync reports that the sync was completed successfully. Anyone else experienced similar problems?

  9. It works fine on my SE W810i...
    But GCalendar still have that "only
    shows the main calendar on feeds" problem...

    It would be intersting if the PC Suite
    synchronize directly with Google "apps",
    like gmail contacts, calendar, etc...

    I'm almost installing Outlook just to
    use as a bridge.. :(

  10. Yes as above, would really like the ability to pick which google calendar it syncs with, rather than the default/main calendar.

  11. It didn't work on my samsung d500, received but couldn't accept the license agreement, and stopped from there. Now I find the site is off-line, no content/app or anything to use. Makes me wonder what it was all about in the first place.

  14. I got further when I downloaded and install certificates for java onto my k750i. Then it seemed to work but after uploading the events aren't there on the google calander site.

    A pain and a shame!

  15. Works on SE K800i, but I had to manually download the jar, and put it on the phone by USB. I think that's because Vodafone Live blocks a port or something (don't know). But synch works fine.

  16. www.goosync.com is free and works with almost any device!

  17. MyPhoneExplorer is the best solution I've found for SonyEricsson phones - it doesn't have the limitations on the number of calendars you can download that Goosync.com has, and it's been completely reliable, as well as having lots of features. I can't recommend it highly enough. Windows only, unfortunately, as it doesn't work with Wine and crashes the virtual Windows installation that I run using Innotek VirtualBox. It will work over Bluetooth as well - it just needs a virtual COM port to talk to. Oh, and it's free, though I'd encourage you to donate if you use it regularly, as I have.

  18. Totally agree with fotherington. "MyPhoneExplorer" is the best you can get. And it is free! I took me 3 mins to download it, install, and Sync my GoogleCalendar into my Sony Ericsson K850i ! Just AMAZING!

  19. I'm also looking for a program, that can sync my google calendar with a Nokia n73 by USB or bluetooth.

    I don't want to pay the online rates for mobile internet, and I can't se whay I should have to install a calendar program like Outlook first.

    Is there a symbian friendly program?

  25. Sync mobile calendar with google over SyncML (which most phones today have). It is free and it is very simple to use: http://www.syncme.se/

  26. Google Sync with SyncML worked perfectly to sync contact from Nokia N70 to google, and then back onto Sony Ericsson K850i !
    Thanks!
