Samsung i5503T (Galaxy 5) on Telecom.

I have updated it to Android 2.2 in order to get the option to actively sync works Exchange email and calendar (which it's supposed to be able to do)..but I can't for the life of me get the calendar to work.

I have set up the account 3 times.  Emails work fine and the calendar is set up to sync in the settings.  But when I go into the calendar it is blank.  If I bring up the calendar options the only calendar available to select in the list is the Gmail account (which is only there because we have to have a Gmail account for some apps).

I can't figure out why the work account isn't showing up as an option to select.

It was working fine on her old HTC and I have confirmed the account settings are correct. 

It's as if I am missing a step or something in the setup thats not linking the account settings and the calendar.

Any advice welcome...I have been searching for a solution all day!

Cheers

Solved, although not sure how/why. Ended up removing the Gmail account completely and loading the Exchange server account first, making doubly sure all of the active sync options were selected...and it worked!

Put the Gmail account back on after and all seems to be working as it should.
