As it seems the Nokia C6 does not have the usual Mail for Exchange interface.
So how to install Google calendar sync to keep your agenda synchronized on your phone and on the web.
Google help sends you to:
But the whole creating a profile seems not to be available.
A long search leads to:
Settings -> Connectivity -> data transfer -> Sync
Options -> New Sync Profile -> Start
Profile Name: Google
Server Version: 1.1 or 1.2 (default)
Applications in sync: Contacts, Calendar, Notes, sync e-mail, multimedia, multim, msgs., text messages, bookmarks
Contacts database: ??
Calendar database: ??
Notes database: ??
Remote Database: ??
Multim. Msg. database: ??
Text msg. database: ??
Bookmarks database: ??
Data bearer: Internet (default) or Bluetooth
Host address: http://m.google.com
Server ID: ??
User Name: email@example.com
Still no working synchronization.
Anyone any tips?
Additional tip by Nokia:
The easiest way to configure a Mail for Exchange account on your C6.
First switch your first device in offline mode.
(briefly press the power button, and then the Offline profiles.)
Then go to Menu -> Applications -> Mail -> New. make mailbox -> you give your e-mail address and password, and when he asks to connect press cancel (2x). Then he will ask you what type of mailbox you want to configure, and then you get the choice to choose Mail for Exchange.

Hello, I've found a solution. You can find it here :
It is in French but as usually all the docs are in English I'm happy to see that this time it may be a problem for English speakers. Don't worry, with babelfish or such a translator you'll be able to understand the main purpose of the text. If not you still can learn French.

So what about speaking of google calendar? Isn't it "commercial"? And the link goes to a forum that has no comercial activity... If you may explain me the reason of the deletion I would be glad understand it.

May I present:
Up-to-date instructions how to get Google Calendar and mail to sync onto Nokia C6-00:
First see Google instructions (for reference only) :
On your Nokia phone, go to: 'E-Mail - New account' and follow this video:
- Select "Play setup video" in Mail for Exchange section.
Use following settings:
- E-mail address: <Your full Google email address>
- Password: <Your password>
- User Name: <Your full Google email address>
- Mail for Exchange Server: m.google.com
- Select what to synchronize.
- Select, whether to keep or delete existing calendar entries on your phone.
Please note: In case of a company account on Google Apps, Google Sync must be enabled on your Google Apps administrator control panel. See:
Contact your network administrator for details.
Ok, setup works and calendar syncs on c6-01 (can't find anything for c6-01, so I tried the c6-00), would be happy if someone would point me to c6-01 instructions.
Problem is all the times on the calendar entries are dead wrong -no pattern to it like 2 hrs off, just randomly way wrong, wrong time length, wrong time start, etc.
How do I set this up to work correctly?
Actually, after further investigation, the times are exactly 2.5 hrs off - too early. So, if an event in google calendar starts at 6pm, the phone will indicate 3:30 pm. Time zone cannot account for this error.
