Calendar import from Symbian S60 smartphone

Post by Arrigo »

Hello,

I have problems with importing iCal files created from my Nokia E90 calendar with epim 2.52. Repeating events are wrongly displayed.
Example (created by "send"ing a calendar entry from Handy to Laptop, which automatically creates iCal):

BEGIN:VCALENDAR
VERSION:1.0
BEGIN:VEVENT
UID:b52rF0AV4EFce43cfE7Dm0
SUMMARY:So
DTSTART:20080614T000000
DTEND:20080614T000000
X-EPOCAGENDAENTRYTYPE:ANNIVERSARY
CLASS:PRIVATE
SEQUENCE:0
X-METHOD:NONE
RRULE:YM1 6 #0
LAST-MODIFIED:20080413T124909Z
PRIORITY:2
X-SYMBIAN-LUID:894
END:VEVENT
END:VCALENDAR

This should be an anniversary, repeating once a year on 14/06, but it gives an all-day event beginning on 14/06 and ending on 23/06.
I have the other problems with other repeating events.

Nokia does not follow iCal standart in this case. Look at "RRULE:YM1 6 #0 "- this is the rule that should describe how event repeats. In your case that should be RRULE:FREQ=YEARLY;BYMONTH=6;BYMONTHDAY=14
Maybe that's a part of larger vCalendar file which has "YM1" defined somewhere else, but then it is not iCal.

OK, thanks. I'm disappointed with Nokia then; no way of visualizing my E90 calendar on epim...
