Thanks much for your thoughts on my request, However, its such a mystery to me as to why in order for me to view an actual calendar when I tap the calendar icon, that I must either sign into or create a google account, or sign up for an exchange account, otherwise, when I tap the calendar icon all I receive is a black screen with corporate/google choices up in the left hand corner. From my samsung p1000 tab on to my htc hd7, I can tap on the calendar icon and theres the calendar in full view along with appointments, that simple. I think this google/android can get a bit to personal when it comes to downloading, even opening the marketplace. I left the calendar icon alone since I refuse to be carried through their request just to view a simple calendar. Again, thanks much for your response to me.
