I'm using my university's exchange server to sync my calendar, contacts and todos with my iPhone (iOS 5), and this is working perfectly.

However, there are (besides the "Birthdays" calendar) two other calendars "from my PC". At least they say they are - I have no idea where they would be on my PC, and why there are two of them (I've only ever synced my iPhone on one Win7 PC under one single user account).

They also appear to be completely empty, but I'm not sure how to actually make sure that they are.

What's more important, I'd like to remove them (not just hide them), but I don't know how. iTunes on Windows isn't a big help here. But perhaps I'm overlooking something.

Can I remove those calendars? Or at least one of them?

  • have you looked in iTunes when the device is plugged in, and looked at the calendars section? there you will be able to turn off calendar syncing with your PC. Nov 14, 2011 at 11:31
  • I hadn't seen a calendars section in iTunes; will have to check again when I'm back on my home PC. Nov 14, 2011 at 11:33

  • To ensure a calendar is empty, untick all but one calendar and press Done/Fertig. Now you can only see the entries for that calendar. If there are no entries, you can safely delete it. If there are entries, you can move them one by one by selecting them, pressing Edit, and changing the Calendar/Kalender field to another calendar. Nov 14, 2011 at 21:49

When the device is plugged into iTunes, look under the info tab, you will see an option to sync calendars, you can turn this off by unchecking the sync calendars box.

  • Excellent, this worked perfectly. I had to uncheck Contacts, Calendars and Email separately and press "Apply" each time, but then everything was cleaned up nicely. Thanks! Nov 14, 2011 at 22:07
