      Sync with Mobile


      Ever since the Google > Yahoo switchover I have not been able to sync my contacts and calendar. So having now recently needed to do a factory reset I want to get it working properly.

      When it was Google, in the sync settings I saw Email, Contacts, Calendar etc. on the phone, but now it's Yahoo I only see email. Contacts and Calendar aren't even there as a sync option.

      Galaxy SIII.

      Any ideas?

      Re: Sync with Mobile

      Since you have an Android phone, it makes things a little easier for me to provide an alternative solution:

      I have linked my Google and Hotmail/Outlook calendars and can access both on my phone (Samsung Galaxy SII) and laptops at the same time. I didn't use the Sky calendar and haven't ever used the Yahoo! calendar for my Yahoo! mail accounts.

      There is a method available to link the Yahoo! Calendar to the Google Calendar:

      How do i link yahoo and google accounts? - Yahoo! Answers

      Also try linking your Google Calendar to the Yahoo! Calendar.

      This way any entries are visible on both calendars.

      I don't know how well the access will be for both, but the only drawbacks I have found is that I can't always edit one calendar on the other device and that occasionally I get a double entry. This is with the Google & Outlook calendars.

      As for the contacts, once I updated the Y! Mail app with all my accounts, all the address books are in my contacts directory. If you have the same person on more than one account & also your phone, 'link' the entries to help on your phone.
