Calendar syncing one way?

I am using the sprint desktop connector to sync my Outlook calendar. I get calendar entries on my phone from outlook. But entries I make on my phone never get to Outlook. Is the the expected behavior?

Yeah, this is a known problem. I posted a work around at this link (3rd message down):

No, this sounds like a different problem. Read it again, ccerose.

I have the same issue with events not getting to Outlook. I do not have my email set up through outlook though, which I believed to be the culprit as to why it never shows up on my Outlook, but have not tested this yet. I do however get events from google calendar to outlook to my phone....but not in reverse.

Do you have your email sent to outlook as well?

(I have google calendars synced to outlook and then desktop outlook through the desktop connector program to my Instinct. Since I don't want duplicate emails, I don't have my gmail account sent to my outlook, ergo my "work" email is empty on my Instinct.)

Sorry I took so long to respond. I do have an email account set up in outlook. But I still do not get dates from my phone.

We are seeing the same problem then. I assume that others are having this problem???

I doubt that we are high priority since we are not doing exactly what the OWA calendar was designed for.

My Exchange calendar is syncing both ways. After seeing the problem reported in this thread, I had to try it for myself. This afternoon I entered an event on my Exchange calendar on the Instinct and put the phone away. Tonight I logged on to my Exchange account and saw the event I had entered on my calendar on the desktop. The event is showing up on both the Instinct Exchange calendar and my Exchange desktop calendar.

I have deleted and recreated the account on the phone and in outlook. I guess my next step is to try re-installing the connector.
