Default Cannot change Default Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

I am burned out trying to fix the following.
I upgraded to os 5.0.0.8620bundle 1446, platform 5.1.0.175. Using a 9700 Bold.
When I did that I did not pay attention to the prompts and afterwards when I set an appointment it uses Group as default and sends to the BBM group.

When I go to setup, adv opts,default, in CICAl and CMIME I see my bus email.

When I go into calendar, select calendar, I see:
Show all Calendars, and under that: BBM Groups, bdg (home), bg (bus), default. When I try to scroll and select bg, the device freezes and I have to pull the battery.

Help!

Default Re: Cannot change Default Calendar

So, is the problem the device freezing? Or do you also have a problem selecting the default CICAL and CMIME in options?

On the device freezing when you try an select a specific calendar, I don't know. I would have to experiment. Here is what I would try...

First, do a full backup. Then set the default CICAL and default CMIME to what you want to use, if possible.

Now, assuming the default CICAL is set to the desired value, open calendar and then select options from the menu. Now highlight in turn each calendar except the BBM group calendar and the default calendar and type move. You will not see the characters when you type, but you will be presented with a prompt asking you if you want to move all entries to the default. Select yes and and let's see what happens. If you are able to do this for all the calendars but the two I mentioned, then try selecting a specific calendar and see if the device still freezes.

If the device does not freeze and you have been able to set your default CICAL as desired, I think your problem is solved, if I've understood your issue.

If you device still freezes, or if you encounter errors or freezing when you try to move all entries from one calendar to the default calendar, then I don't know. What I would do at that is use desktop manager to selective clear the calendar databases and then selectively restore those databases from an earlier backup. Or, if you sync you calendar with something, clear and then re-sync with that something.

As I say, I'm not sure of the solution. That's what I would try. See what others say.

THe fact that it freezes is not the main point. Not sure if I explained well enough. There are only two accounts in CICAL ans CMIME, bg and bdg.
BG is the one set as default, all looks ok. Yet when I make a new appointment, the default is BBM group. How can I change that?

I'm not sure. The new appointment should go in the default calendar. You should see this when you create the appointment, the send using selection should automatically be the same as what you set as the default CICAL when you create a new appointment. That's the way it works for me. I don't know if it's possible to have anything that overrides this. I don't see anything in options.

What happens if you create a new appointment and manually change the send as selection to another calendar and save. Does it save to the selected calendar, or still go to the BBM group calendar?

Ok. I don't know why the default calendar when you create an appointment doesn't match the default CICAL and CMIME. Just to confirm, you are setting CICAL and CMIME defaults to the same address, correct?

My only advice is rule out the possibilities starting with the easiest first. Neither of us sees an option that would cause this. What about a third party app? Next would be corrupt calendar database, maybe, don't know. Last would be issue with the device software.

Default Re: Cannot change Default Calendar

to make matters worse, when I open a calendar entry to make a reminder, if I chose my personal email to sync with it does not show up on my gmail on my desktop.

I used bbsak to remove the rim-calendar-group as was suggested. Did not remove BBM group calendar default setting
