    This is a strange problem that happened to me and I can't seem to fix it no matter what I do. I used to be able to sync my Outlook info on my home desktop with my iPhone and get my Exchange stuff as well but I can't sync my Outlook info anymore. My computer suffered a crash (bad hard drive sectors) and I had to start over from scratch with a clean Windows 7 install and had to reinstall everything again.

    I tried a backup/restore and when I did that my calendars wouldn't sync (both PC and Exchange). Actually I couldn't even see my Exchange calendar and none of my calendar info in Outlook would sync. I finally did a clean setup for my iPhone and didn't sync my apps or my Outlook info and I got my Exchange Calendar back but I still can't get my calendar to sync to my PC. Does anyone have any ideas on how to solve this problem?

    I've already tried re-installing iTunes, doing reboots, and removing my sync history with no success. If I could add a second Exchange account to my iPhone I wouldn't even care about syncing to Outlook at home but I'm trying to keep some work/life balance.

    OK so did you reinstall the Exchange account on the phone after you had all the trouble? or has it been installed all along? I would say take out the exchange account and setup the exchange account from scratch on the phone.

    I did everything from scratch including setting up my work Exchange account. Whats weird is if I try and sync info, music, and movies, my calendars are OK but Outlook just doesn't sync. When I try and sync apps, my calendars disappear which is weird as hell so I'm not syncing those until I get the calendar thing resolved which is more important than my apps syncing to my phone.

    Oh yeah thr was the first thing I did when I found bad sectors on the drive. I reinstalled everything but lost my iTunes library and playlists and my backups. Efore the crash everything was working fine, after the crash I can do a local sync anymore
