Can't delete Calendar and Memo Entries

For some strange reason, I cannot delete the calendar and memo entries. When I erase them, it disappears at first, but as soon as I exit out of the calendar and go back into it, all of the things that were deleted are back!!! It's driving me nuts... any solutions??

    Can't delete calendar, memo, or alarm settings or change them. When deleting an entry it says entry was deleted, but when I reopen the calendar its back. When attempting to change entry it defaults to the date of 01 00 1980, and won't allow any changes. Very frustrating and will eventually use up all memory rendering the calendar useless.

    I have tried the system software upgrade (dial up to cell service), removing the battery, and manually resetting the phone to factory settings... all of which have no effect.

    I took the phone into my service provider (Verizon) where they did a manual software upgrade, which deleted all the old calendar entries, but I still have all the same issues described above.

    I have sent several email to Samsung, but have yet to receive a reply.

WHEN I GO TO EDIT A CALENDAR ENTRY I DOUBLE TAP ON THE DATE TO CHANGE IT AND THE EDITING SCREEN WILL NOT OPEN, IT IS THE SAME IF I WANT TO CHANGE THE DETAIL OF THE ENTRY OR THE TIME


If you can't do it by double click the you must do it manually step by step. If you want to edit or add entry in calender or change the detail you can do it by click the entry once, then click the Option button, choose edit (to edit entry) or Add entry (memo, reminder etc), then the editing screen will appear and you can rewrite your entry.

Hope this help and if helpful RATE please.

Master reset code


  • Remove any memory cards that are in the phone (MicroSD, SD or MiniSD), and remove the SIM card, if your phone uses one. Make sure the phone is turned on before continuing (if you had to remove the battery to remove the memory card or SIM, turn the phone on).

  • Select "Contacts" from the main screen of your cell phone to access your contacts list. Go through the entire list, selecting each name and deleting the entry. Consult your cell phone manual to find out where the "Delete Entry" option is located in your Contacts menu (if you do not have a manual use the link in "Resources" to download a copy of one for your phone). Typically, when you choose an entry, the option to "Edit" will appear on the screen. Select that and one of the sub-options will be "Delete Entry." Do this for all of the entries in your Contact list.

  • Open your text messaging (SMS) application on your phone. Most phones have an icon you can choose from the main screen to go to the application (where you can compose, send, or read SMS messages). Press your "Menu" key again (or the key under the "Options" choice on the screen), and select "Delete All." Click on the choice to delete both read and unread messages. When you are done, return to the main menu.

  • Delete all of your media files. Go to your music, video, photo and MMS directories, and either use a "Delete All" option from the menu, or individually highlight each file name, select "Edit" and then "Delete" and remove each one.

  • Open your calendar and clear all of the entries. Make, sure when you choose this option from the calendar edit menu, that you check off the option to remove the calendar history as well, so past events are erased.

  • Open your email settings (where you entered your email address originally to receive notifications on your phone of new emails), and delete the email address you registered.

  • Open your notepad program and delete any notes you may have stored in the memory. Do this for any Voice Notes, if your phone offered this function as well.

    Why is the calender event icon on my screen, i dont have a calender event for today.


    Actually, PiyushVig's answer is completely incorrect. The Calendar icon on both the front screen and the main screen are not always there. They only show up for a reason, and that is because there is a calendar event scheduled for that day. (Likewise there is no setting in the phone to show or not show the calendar icon. If you have an event scheduled for that day, the calendar icon will show and there is no changing that feature.)

    Today I had the same problem as the person who asked this question. There are no events scheduled for today yet the phone displays the calendar icon on both the main screen and the front screen of my Samsun Convoy SCH-U640 cell phone.

    So I just got off the phone with Samsung support to see if I could resolve this issue. They told me that there is no reason for the calendar icon to show up when there are no events scheduled for that day. They had me do a soft boot (shut off phone and remove battery for 20 seconds then replace battery and turn phone back on) and that did not work. I also tried actually programming an event for today and then erased it but that did not make the bogus calendar even alert icon go away.

    So Samsung Support's conclusion to this issue is exactly what I suspected before I even called them; it's simply a software glitch (which is annoying for those Convoy users that really use and rely on the calendar function).

    LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync


    I have a lot of problems with the calender. when I first got the phone, a week or two ago, I put my work houres in it, and the whole week, no alarm. then weekend came and a small icon above of a small calender appeared, and the whole weekend it kept on going off 5 times in a row at 7.30, the time I needed to leave for work in the week, when it didnt went off at all O_o today, I had to leave at 8.30 and it went off at 8.30 but also at 7.30 again, while that's not an alarm in my calendar for today.. after work my cookie suddenly went out, I had to take the battery pack out to "reboot" it, now the calender icon is gone, I wonder if it will go off at 8.30 tomorow like planned or if it won't go off at all anymore again..
    Another thing I noticed is, that when I put in a date from one houre to another is that it doesn't state the correct houre (when I put in 8.00 to 16.00 it shows 00.00 to 16.00) I put in until I open the actual appointement.
    strangely enough, my cookie just lighted up it's screen as if I touched it out of itself and even more strange, the calendar icon up there is back..!
