      FYI, I am getting nowhere with Yahoo Calendar customer service, they keep on sending me the same canned message telling me to download Intellisync (without providing a link but it doesn't matter, Nokia doesn't even have that product on their page anymore anyway because it's been discontinued) and providing instructions to uninstall it (?).

      So I switched to Google calendar. It was painless, took only a few minutes and it's syncing back and forth to my iTouch without any problems, which pretty much confirms that the issue wasn't on the iTouch side (not that I ever had any doubts) but on the Yahoo Calendar side. Google lets me forward my emails to Yahoo Mail so I can even get my calendar reminders in my Yahoo email, which is good because I didn't want to change my email address which I have had for many years.

      So if anyone else has the same problem, my fix was to move to Google. Word to the wise...

Events that I enter on the iTouch/Yahoo calendar will sync up to Yahoo calendar but after a delay of about 5 minutes. I don't think there was so long a delay before but I never really paid that much attention.

They were no help, told me to download Intellisync and that there was no further support. I haven't had to download Intellisync before and furthermore, Wikipedia indicates that it has been discontinued and that support will only be provided until July 19 of this year so I don't really want to install some software that I didn't need before that's already obsolete anyway.

      I had the same issue with the iPhone sync, then, all of a sudden it started working again. Not much help, but someone who shares your pain.   Kenton
