When I synced my iphone with yahoo calendar, it swithced the calendar to yahoo calendar beta, but changed the times of all of my appts to five hours earlier. To make this even more interesting I keep getting email notices but they are for the correct times. Any solutions?

I spent 4 hrs figuring this out and I was able to finally get it working by going into Yahoo profile and changed/turned off all of my privacy settings, activity sharing, linked account and then my iphone was able to recognize the yahoo calendar.

I’ve spent 3 hours with Apple (2 at the Genius Bar), and I’ve followed 2 of your “how to” sites. NOTHING will transfer my Yahoo calendar to my IPhone.
