Analog or Digital?

LG enV Cell phoneI'm running into a bit of a minor problem right now with my organizational system. It's my calendar. You see, I really like having a web-based calendar, like Google Calendar. It's easy to use, easy to share. I've also used Yahoo! Calendar and AirSet in the past, but Google Calendar has everything I want -- except one thing.

I have no way to take it with me.

Well, to be accurate, I can print out the calendar, but I have no way to electronically access the calendar when I'm away from my computer. Ostensibly, my cell phone can browse the Web, and therefore access my Calendar, but apparently, Google Calendar is a bit too complex for it. For right now, whenever I try to connect to the calendar with my phone, it just says "Sorry, we don't support your device, yet".

So, for now, I'll just have to continue taking the paper version with me to networking events as I did this morning and then transfer any appointments I make back into the calendar. In the meantime, if you've heard of a way to display your Google Calendar on an LG enV cell phone, I'd sure appreciate a few pointers.

So, how do you keep track of your appointments?

Ditto, same problem. Doesn't work on blackberry, either.

Supposedly you can interact with it via SMS. I haven't tried it, but here's the page describing the feature:

Yep, that works, kind of. Unfortunately, it only works with your main calendar. If you, as I, use multiple calendars (one for personal stuff, one for work, etc), then you won't get your whole schedule. Also, I'm not sure I want to pay $.20 per message to check my calendar.

Thanks for the link!
