Calendar and Alarms

I used the N900 to sync my Exchange calendar for the past month.  At some point the Exchange sync got stuck into a loop an kept bring-in in the old entries. As result I was getting alarm reminders non stop.

I couldn't use the phone at all. Since the power button was useless the only solution was to remove the battery.

 

On startup the process started again. I manged to recover by removing the SIM and disabling the Exchange sync.

 

Now the Calendar app fills the CPU whenever is started directly or by the e-mail client.

 

I cannot remove the calendar.

 

Does anyone have any solution to clean the calendar entries ?

 

Thank you!

Hi,

 

Here's how you can delete all calendar entries from your calendar (Calendar app open):

1. Tap the title bar

2. Select Settings

3. Select Edit calendars

4. Select calendar you're using - most probably N900, local.

5. Select Delete. Now you should get the following message: "N900 calendar can not be deleted. Delete all calendar content instead?" Select Yes and that should do the trick.

 

Cheers.

Did the delete trick. But, for some wired reason the delete was sync-ed back to the Exchange server.All my calendar entries are now gone :smileysad:

 

Defiantly the N900 Exchange integration is a disaster.  

 

The whole trouble was cause by the annoying recursive calendar reminders.

If I could disable those I would still have my meetings.

 

 Anyway , thank you for the answer  !

Triplez, very sorry to hear you lost all your calendar entries from server. I didn't notice this in my system ... after deleting entries from N900 calendar I also deleted MfE account/profile from N900, created it again and after that tried sync again.

 

Cheers.
