    Google Calendar to to sync past events

    I was quite shocked to realize that the google calendar won't sync more than 30 days, it seems like this is a known problem.

    I researched some solutions (one of which was to manipulate all the phone to think that we are a year back, and by that, syncing another year).
    This seems like a stupid solution to me, must be a smarter solution.

    Another route I went to, was to sync the calendar via the exchange account.
    This makes a lot of sense, as this is what your would do with your iPhone (I used to do with my Ipod touch), and synced all past events.

    I can't believe that iPod to google is easier sync than google (android) to google.

    So far, I wasn't able to sync the accounts via exchange, I keep getting an error message:
    "Failed to create an account. Please try again later".
    (even when I unchecked sync calendar, sync gmail, and sync people, like some suggested).

    Questions:
    1. Anyone had any luck syncing google on the android phone, via the exchange account, and if so, did this solve the past event syncing?
    2. In the set up, what do you write in the "domain" section?

    Thanks,

    I see many views, and not many replies.
    Hope this info help, but I found a fix (that work for me):

    go to your computer calendar interface: setting > calendars > export (this is a good start, because it's never bad to have a back up...).
    this will download a zip into your desktop (or whatever your default location is).

    Unzip those, and reimport them. This will not double your events.
    Once this has been done, go to your phone: setting > account and Sync > choose your gmail account > sync.

    You're done!

    sync google calendar past 30 days

    I looked at my Google Calendar on my desktop browser for the oldest event and noted the date and description. I went to settings and exported the Calender to my pc. Using notepad, I used edit to find the event "summary" with that title in the .ics file. I changed the event title in the summary by adding a word (any word or character will do.) I saved the modified .ics file and imported the modified .ics back into Google Calender on the desktop. When I resynced the phone, the event dates went all the way back to 2009.
