How to sync google calendar with the Nokia Januari 24, 2012Posted by agusdd in IT, lintas blog.
Bagaimana cara sinkronisasi kalender google dengan nokia? itu pertanyaanku dulu. Sinkronisasi ini kuanggap penting karena banyak agenda yang harus kujadwalkan tanpa bisa menulisnya manual lagi. Sinkronisasi kalender juga perlu karena saya mulai gampang lupa, sehingga dengan kalender ini kita bisa dibantu dingatkan. Lebih penting sinkronisasi perlu dilakukan karena mode pengingatnya bisa diatur dua cara yakni dingatkan melalui email atau Pop up di layar ponsel.
Berulang kali mencoba sinkronisasi kalender google dengan kalender nokia. Awalnya coba ini itu berhasil, tapi tiba-tiba ngadat lagi. Sekarang pakai emoze saja, lebih mudah dan praktis. Selain bisa sinkronisasi kalender google, kita juga bisa sinkronisasi kontak juga email gmail. Lebih menguntungkan lagi, program ini geratis.
Tapi selain itu, kita juga bisa memanfaatkan Mail for Exchange (MfE) bawaan nokia. Untuk referensi dan caranya bisa diikuti sesuai dengan cara berikut ini. Selain cara pertama, ada juga cara lain pada fitur kedua. Saya sudah Test bagaimana cara sinkronisasi kalender google ini di Nokia E5. Its works. Tks to Nokia Forum.
The first source said :
This is not so much of a question than a solution to a problem many new owners of the Nokia E72 will have especially if they have upgraded from the Nokia E71 which was very easy to set up. There is a link to this solution on the forum but I decided to write it out here so that those who had the same problem I had can easily get the solution. I understand this fix works with the E75 as well. Its the symbian operating system so the solution is kinda of long bear with me.
Start email setup wizard from home screen, or by going menu => help => phone setup => setup e-mail
2) Phone will ask your email address, input something like youraccountX (remember the X in the end, otherwise you won’t be able to use MfE for Gmail)
3) Select “corporate” as the type of email (for the e72 you may not see corporate so just go ahead and choose Mail for exchange
You will be asked for sync details. Ensure that under email address the x is at the end of it. Under username put email address – yourname (note:don’t put the x at the end this time).
And leave the domain heading blank. Click Next
The Mail for exchange server is m.google.com. Click Next
(The phone should set up everything else for you as opposed to the E71 where you had to enter more info, if you are prompted however you can go to the setup instructions at http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=147951 for the missing details)
Select Calendar (and Contacts if you want). Click next.
Decide how you want to sync your data. Click next. And your almost done.
Enter your password and MfE will configure your account
After setting up the account the sync will fail due to MfE trying to sync email from google’s servers which is not supported by Google for Symbian devices, so some changes to the settings are needed:
Go to Menu => Email => Settings => Mail for Exchange => Mailbox and check (and edit) your Email address, username and password.
Then go to Menu => Email => Settings => Mail for Exchange => What to sync => disable email sync. You can also select the sync period and schedule from the “When to sync” menu.
After this go to Menu => Email => Settings => personal information management => Applications => enable calendar sync, disable to-do sync. Contacts sync should work, so it can be enabled.
After this you’re ready to rock & roll, so go to the main view of the email application and select options => synchronize and your calendar / contacts data should be synchronized.
If you have any issues you can also edit Adv mailbox settings within the mailbox tab.
And thats it. Syncing from web to phone is almost instant so it makes for organizing that much sweeter.
The second source, recomended
It’s hard to beat the utility of Google Calendar. The app allows you to share and collaborate your calendar with others, makes it possible to view colleagues’ schedules and availability, and generally keeps your hectic life in order.
Google Calendar would be even more useful if you could have mobile access to it. For BlackBerry users, there’s Google Sync, a tool that will seamlessly sync the BlackBerry calendar with Google Calendar. However for Nokia/Symbian phones, useful options are a little more difficult to find. But they do exist; below are three:
Gcalsync is a freeware java program that will sync multiple Google Calendars with your Symbian calendar. Unfortunately, this open-source project lacks an intuitive user interface. Downloading and installing is straightforward, but operation of the application is clunky at best. Each time the application is launched, you must grant it permission to your Symbian calendar, which takes a considerable amount of time and multiple keystrokes. The application does, however, allow for two-way sync, meaning an event you create on your smartphone will be uploaded to your Google Calendar and vice versa. But if an appointment is changed on your phone and the changed parameters are pushed to your Google Calendar, they won’t be reflected there. Also, time zones appear to be problem for GCalSync, with events getting slotted hours later or earlier than intended.
GCalSync shows some promise, but at this point it’s not ready for prime time. Om firstwrote about this product back in October 2006; it doesn’t appear to have matured much since then.
A new entrant into the Symbian software market, CalSync60, is winning fans in the Nokia blog community. This S60 native application runs quickly and is dead simple to use. Download and install the application from their web site, enter in your Google credentials, and the sync process will begin. CalSync60 also supports two-way syncing and the application will set calendar item alerts as they are configured in your Google Calendar.
Keep in mind that CalSync60 is still in a beta testing period. However, the feedback regarding stability and performance has been positive thus far. CalSync60 recommends you back up your Google Calendar before attempting a sync with their application.
GooSync is a commercial web service that comes in two flavors — free and premium. With the free service, you can sync only one Google Calendar and can only sync events 30 days out. The premium service, which is £19.95 ($40) a year, will allow you to sync contacts, set categories for calendar items and contacts, sync up to 365 days out, allow you to sync multiple calendars, and execute autosync.
To set up the service, go to GooSync and create an account. Through the sign-up process you grant GooSync access to your Google Calendar. You are then given access to the GooSync installer file for your Nokia phone. After installation and set-up, GooSync is an option in your Tools->Sync menu, making syncing quick and painless.
GooSync is by far the most seamless service. I have been using the free version and have found that it meets my needs. The most provocative premium service, in my opinion, is the ability to autosync. Having to manually initiate a sync is too time-consuming.
Even though there are options for syncing your Google Calendar with your Symbian handset, the process is still a bit convoluted. GooSync is the closest option Symbian users have to a seamless solution, if you’re willing to pay to use it. My hope is that with advancements in the API, more software developers will develop business-ready solutions for the Google Calendar syncing issue.
