Htc Desire - Get Private Calendar Back / Set - Turn Off Alarm Per Appointment


Since my desire updated to froyo, i have a few issues with the calendar.
Before froyo, there were 3 types of calendar:
1.google calendar (didn't and still don't use it)
2. Htc sync (use it for the data i want to sync with my work calendar)
3. My calendar (calendar on the phone itself, used it for my private appointments and meetings i didn't want to get synced with my work calendar).

Now that last one has disappeared and i really miss it! Now my private meetings also show up in my work calendar.
Is there a way to get this private calendar back? Or is it possible to sync only in one way? I know it was possible with my nokia, so my work data appeared on my phone, but my private data didn't get pushed to my work calendar.

Another issue i encounter with the calendar app (not sure if it is typical froyo) is that every appointment has an alarm. Again on the nokia there was only an alarm if you explicitly entered one.
Is there a way to set or turn off the alarm per appointment?

Unable To Edit An Appointment That Already Was In Calendar / Solution For This

I use a htc hero (not rooted), have just updated the rom and have encountered the following problem when using the otherwise excellent calendar pad widget by moaiapps :

-I cannot edit an appointment that already was in the calendar. If i select an appointment, i can open it, but the menu key will not give me the edit option, only send vcalendar and delete . This seems to affect appointments that were on the android before the update.

-If i add a new appointment on the android, i can later select it and edit it, the edit option appears as it should.

I have found a workaround, but it is really cumbersome: use the "standard" calendar app from android or sense, then select the appointment and with long press i'll get the edit option.

Anyone else here with the same problem? Or even better, with a solution?

I have updated to the latest calendar pad (1. 1. 2-free), but it doesnt solve the problem.

Htc Incredible - Set Gmail Invites To Be Private By Default On Dinc

Is there a way to set gmail invites to be private by default? Google help says that if your calendar is set to private (mine is) then all invites will be private too. That is not the case though - when my husband receives an invite in outlook and he has to manually change it to private. So short of using my pc for all invites (where i can manually set them to private each time) is there a way to do this on the dinc?

Htc Desire - How To Backup A Private Application

I'm using astro to back up some not very often used apps, and games. So i can remove them for now.

I have the paid for version of winds of steel, and exzeus that i want to remove. They're listed as private, with no check box for backup.

How do i get around this, or is it a case of tough.

I can see why they wont allow backups, otherwise a paid for game could be ported to someone elses 'droid phone for free. As long as they have astro.

Htc Desire - Alarm Snoozes At Trackball Activity / Stop It

I use my desire as an alarm, but when the screen is locked any activity at the trackball will make the alarm snooze. Let me explain.

My desire lies next to me in bed (got a big bed) with the screen downwards, so the alarm will be louder (am a heavy sleeper). When the alarm goes off, i flip the phone, the trackball registers this movement and the alarm goes into snooze modus! Only by flipping or even moving the phone!

In the alarm settings one can decide how the sidebuttons are supposed to behave, but there is no option for the trackball.

Am i alone at this? What to do!?

Htc Evo 4g - Turn Sense Back On Through Another Method

I turned sense off using the "force stop" and "clear defaults" instructions. I just wanted to get a "sense" of the phone without it but did not think ahead to how one can turn sense back on. Just got off the phone with htc support who said to look for "home" as a running application in manage applications - which wasn't there. Has anyone had any success turning sense back on through another method?
Happy to mess around with stock android and all but not happy that i can't undo this (so far). Thanks in advance.

Any Way To Set Default Calendar

I've been using jorte, and like it, but i seem to have some across a deal-breaker. When entering an appointment from the phone, if you just click on "new event", key in the event, and press "done" it puts the event into "my calendar" by default. "My calendar" seems to be something stored only on the phone. It doesn't sync with google. To get the event into your google calendar you have to press "show details" and select the relevant calendar from the drop down list under "calendar. "The problem is

(A) it's very easy to forget to do this when quickly entering an appointment, meaning that your new event will be in the wrong calandar and will not sync;
(B) there is no way of going back into the event and telling which calendar it has been assigned to; and
(C) even if you realise that you've put the event in the wrong calendar there is no way of going back in and changing it to a different one. You just have to delete it (together with any details or repeat information) and start again from scratch.

This is driving me a bit mad, because i keep finding the odd event which is not coming up on my google calendar online for this reason, and i can't afford for this to happen, so i will need to drop jorte unless i can find a solution. Is my analysis above correct, or am i missing something? To solve this there needs to be a way of setting the calendar which new events get dumped to by default, and also a way of easily changing events from one calendar to another without deleting them.

Calendar Notification Does Not Turn On Screen

Calendar notifications sound the alarm, but the screen remains black. When i receive an sms, the screen briefly turns on to display the message - it seems to me that the calendar should do the same thing.
(In any case, that's what i'm used to from my palm, mumble-grumble! )

Is this normal behaviour, or have i accidentally set a dumb option somewhere? I've searched everywhere. Do i need a 3rd-party app, and if so, which one?

Htc Desire - Sudden Disappearance Of Exchange Calendar

So today at some point after 2pm (because i successfully added something to my calendar then) i have lost the ability to add stuff to my exchange activesync calendar which used to be synchronised to my google apps calendar. All the old stuff is still there and the inbox is syncing fine. If i go to the setting the tick box to show the exchange calendar is missing. If i add something online it does show up on my phone. I can even open stuff and read it but i cannot add anything new.

Please help. Saying "remove activesync account and re-add" is not a solution. I shouldn't have to keep doing this every few days to sort syncing issues.

Htc Desire - How Easy Is It To Get Back To Default

So i have decided to root. I was going to goldcard/ruu to debrand my orange uk desire but i am a tinkerer and would love to flash rooted roms etc. Before i start i have a few questions;

1. Radio firmware: this is the biggie for me - i know that doing any sort of rom change you are likely to run into issues with the radio, this seems especially true on orange ones. So without having to unlock (it may sound cheap, but i haven't been paid for 2 months ) is there a way to avoid potential simlocks? Ie can i keep the radio version that is currently only my phone (just updated to froyo).

2. I know you can't get ota updates with rooted roms, but i like to keep up to date. I assume the guys making the roms are coming out with new ones all the time so is it quite easy to flash a new rom and be on your way?

3. Titanium backup and nandroid - i have seen people saying to use these for backups when you root. As far as i can tell titanium backup is good for settings etc, and nandroid is good for getting all your apps back, right? They both seem to require root access, so that surely means i can't backup all my settings before i root?

4. How easy is it to get back to default?

5. Which rom? I have seen many singing the praises of defrost. Is this pretty close to stock rom?

6. Anything you suggest i do/install when i am rooted? Anything especially cool .

I have seen many guides about, this in particular looks pretty damn easy to follow. Though the latest comments seem to be people having trouble now that they are on froyo and not eclaire. Also i got my phone early april, so i assume the screen is amoled, it doesn't seem to suffer from backlight bleed and its black as black on black backgrounds.
