    Default Iphone with multiple calendars before syncing

    Hello,

    I've got an user with an Iphone. He has already a lot of calendars inside the phone!

    What will happen if i sync it with zimbra?
    Will he loose all his calendars?
    How can i keep the phone syncing one side with zimbra for a few calendars and on the otherside keep syncing with other programms?

    Thanks for your help!

    The short answer is yes.
    The way the iphone handles sync is to replace the current content of the phone, with the content from the "exchange" server, Zimbra in this instance.

    So if you select to sync calendar from Zimbra, existing calendar information on the phone will be removed.

    I'm going to preface this and say that I don't have an iPhone, but..

    Shouldn't you be able to sync it to iTunes and export the calendar then import back into either Zimbra or onto the phone (which would be a bit ridiculous since you have the Zimbra service to sync over-the-air)?

    This is the way i was thinking!

    But i hoped there was a way to add an "exchange only" calendar inside the iphone and sync zimbra with this one!
