    For about a week now I've been noticing that my iPhone 4S calendar, which is synched with my Google calendar, is randomly not synching certain events. It seems that all the classes for this semester that I added a month or so ago, along with new events, come and go on the iPhone. They're in Google, so it's not that. Older event entries are fine. I think. I don't think it has to do with updating to 6.1 (pretty sure it started earlier) but I guess it's possible. This is not a new device, I've had it since the 4S first came out. I also thought it was location based at first, but now not so much.

    Thanks for the help.

    When you add them to your calendar, are you adding through your iPhone in the default calendar?

    Most, if not all, were added from my PC through the Google Calendar web page. I'm reasonably certain there's some glitch with Google and the iPhone talking to each other. What's really weird (to me) is that this didn't start (or at the least wasn't noticed) until school started. It initially was only my classes that were dropping off and was only noticed at school, hence my initial belief that it was location based. Now, however, I'm noticing it at other locations as well.

    I have three Google based calendars on my phone and all of them sync up correctly. Never seen things be removed unless someone at my work removes something..

    Are these shared calendars or public calendars that the school uses?

    These aren't being removed. Sometimes they're just not on the iPhone calendar. If I go into the Google app they're there. These are on my own personal calendar. Imagine creating an event, seeing it on the iPhone calendar, six hours later it doesn't show in the calendar, and then the next day it's just back.

    First go here and make sure what is supposed to sync is checked.

    https://www.google.com/calendar/iphoneselect

    Click Save.

    Also how far back with sync settings is set on the phone?

    Can you verify that you are subscribed to the calendar where you're entering the classes?

    John, yeah it was correct, but thanks. Especially so since I think you just showed me how to do something else that I was wondering about :-)

    Yes, I can verify that. I'll go even a bit further and say that the only thing that has been changed regarding my calendar since I got the phone was that events were added. The events are added with both the Google app as well as from a PC on the Google Calendar webpage. This is something that just started up with no changes, unless upgrading to 6.1 did it. As I said at the beginning however, I think this first started being a problem before I upgraded. Even odder is that it seems that these entries have just stopped showing up on the iPhone now. Might delete the events and rebuild them.

    EDIT: Playing around and by switching the events from "Default" to "Public" and then back they show up.

    Sounds like you have a couple of calendars there and are only subscribed to Public.

    There are two other calendars that I'm subscribed to, but they have never shown on the phone for some reason, and still don't. The one in question is the only one that I "use" and is the one I'm having a problem with. Effectively all the events that I expect to see on my calendar are on one, and it has always been that way. These three or four events on this calendar are the only ones with an issue; other events on the same calendar are fine.

    Well, in any case, by playing with the settings it works again, so thanks for the help.

    Yippie, back with a vengeance. The calendar on my iPhone has dropped everything since late January. I haven't changed anything. I've modified no settings, removed no events, or added new events. Just boom, gone. They're still on Google, but not showing on the phone. This is an independent act of aggression towards me by my phone or Google, dunno which.

    Try this: on your i-device, go to Settings-Mail, Contacts, Calendars and then scroll down to the calendar section. The 3rd line should state "Sync". To the right of "Sync", select "All Events". Now initiate your calendar and see if the missing events appear.

    Nope, no joy. This is weird. The iPhone shows the last event as January 26, the one prior December 11. There are events on my calendar between that point, but they don't show up on the iPhone (pretty positive they did before). There are events after January 26 as well that DID show up on the iPhone, but don't anymore. NOTHING has been changed, this is totally without my input and on my personal calendar.

    Well, managed SOMETHING, I just dunno if it will work long term. I went into the settings, turned off calander sync, deleted the calendar entries from the phone, then turned it back on. Once I synced back up all looks good, for now.

    I'm in the same boat as necigrad. My Google calender has not been syncing since late January; the same time they turned off Exchange for free accounts. My email and contacts are still working through exchange just fine. But the calender sync seems completely dead. I tried the steps you said and still nothing from my Google calender appears on my iPhone, at all. Also turning off calender sync and turning it back on does nothing as well.

    After turning off sync did you delete all calendar entries? If I remember correctly I turned off sync, deleted all calendar entries (which should be for the phone only) then turned sync back on. Since I did this I've had no problems.
