New Pearl 8120 - double calendar entries

I have double calendar entries, I have no idea why, is there any way to avoid this???

there's not much you can do about that. the same problem appears on 8100. I have just upgraded my 8100 to 8120 (should arrive tomorrow morning) and I should keep you updated with the latest updates, software, patches, solutions in max 24h.
stick with me.

double calendar entries
if its a corporate device it could be you corporate software to back up outlook that at fault.

I've just upgraded from 8100 to 8120 (well worth it!), and have not had this problem on either. I use PocketMac to synch with iCal - could it be an issue with Windoze based software?

Elih2 - if this is on a corporate network (a BlackBerry Enterprise Server) contact your IS department, as there is a problem with the version of CDO.DLL they are running with Exchange and the BES.

Fix double calendar entires or wrong date
Yes, there is a solution.

First, synce your device. Second, from the Desktop Manager, configure your sync so that the calendar sync is diabled (so that when you sync in the future it will not talk with Outlook).

Next, from the Desktop Manager, select back-up and restore feature. Highlight "calendar" on the ***right*** side of the dialog boxes. Delete it. When the progress box disappears, wait for the device to finish actually wiping the calendar appointments clear. This is aupposed to wipe out all calendar items.

Now check your device. Odds are, a "problem" date or appointment will arise. An appointment (or series of) that did not delete via the Back-up & Restore delete could also be an invisible data error. If problem appointments exist, delete them in Blackberry. Repeat until the problem appointments are gone.

Now, reconfigure the sync settings and bring configure them to sync Outlook. Now sync your device. When done, do a battery pull.

Are the entries only duplicated on your Pearl?

I had the same problem after upgrading the OS. This is what my BES hosting provider said:

"If the calendar is duplicated on the device and not on your Outlook you will have to wipe your device and reactivate your BlackBerry, this will clear all data on the phone and allow the device to sync with the current calendar on the server. If you had previous calendar items on the phone before you activate it will duplicate because the BlackBerry will add your existing calendar items from the server to your BB".

So, a fresh Enterprise Activation fixed the problem for me - but then we don't know if you're on a BES.
