I just found this cool open source application which allows you to synchronize your Google Calendar and your mobile phone. It works for most phones including Blackberry, though I guess its best served on Symbian (considering the source.) I plan to test it out later today and get back to you with more information. You can download it from a WAP browser as well if you go to wap.gcalsync.com.

  1. > I guess its best served on Symbian

    It’s a Java application so it probably doesn’t matter what operating system your device is running. The word is that JME (Java Mobile Edition) itself will be open sourced before the end of the year.

  2. That would be seriously hot… lot of cool new developments. I just tried the service… doesn’t work too well with Blackberry (NOT WORKING) but got it working on an old Nokia phone in a matter of seconds.

  3. I just tried in my old Blackberry 6230. I got some java run time error. I gave up.

  4. Blackberry is very stringent on security settings and access to applications and as a result it is having the problems. I tried with old phones – works nicely, though the UI just simply blows. Wish some of these open source projects paid some attention to the GUI and stuff.

  6. It’s not working 100% on all phones.. You can read the Google Group for Gcalsync here: http://groups.google.com/group/gcalsync

    1. The group named gcalsync has been removed because it violated Google’s Terms Of Service.

  7. And with gsmcal2html, you can export the calendar from your mobile to a html page!

  9. Unfortunately it requires certain extensions to the J2ME to be supported by your phone – specifically the Java API to access the calendar stuff – it doesn’t work for my C550 for example (however it works fine on a C600).

  10. gcalsyn unable to verify digital signature on my SPV5 C550
    but I guess as OLLI just said above it doesn’t work on his C550 either I am just going to go have to sulk and wait around till I either get a new phone (march) or someone releases one that works with my phone (I am far to lazy/stupid to make one myself!)
