I'm using the native calendar app that came installed on my HTC Sensation. No matter which view I use (one day, week, month, or agenda) it always opens to a date about two weeks in the past. Even when creating new events, the initial date is incorrect.

I've seen this question, which isn't exactly the same as my issue, plus it's almost 2 years old.

I'd prefer not to have to use a third-party app for calendaring, and everything else about the calendar is fine (syncs correctly, displays multiple accounts' data.) It's just annoying to have to scroll through two weeks of data or date-picker tumblers to get to today.

Has anyone else run across this? Is there anything I can do to fix it?

I'm running Froyo on a rooted (but not custom-rommed) phone.

Just wondering: The HTC Sensation is max. 1.5yrs old, it has been launched in 05/2011 (UK, US: 06/2011) and shipped with 2.3.3 Gingerbread, not 2.2 Froyo. See the entry on gsmarena for more. PS: It's officially upgradable to 4.0 ICS and an 4.1 JB update is also promised. If you dare you can S-Off it and install CyanogenMod 9.1 or 10. Maybe this fixes your calendar problem. –  ce4 Nov 18 '12 at 9:43

have you tried another calendar app by chance to see if using two of the same shared calendar (like google calendar) will fix this? –  David T. Nov 18 '12 at 17:51
    
@ce4 - you're right, it's gingerbread. I'm not interested in a custom rom right now - I used cyanogen on my old phone because I hated the interface, but I kind of like the Sense interface and don't want to change it. And it seems like a kind of drastic step just to fix a calendar display issue. –  EmmyS Nov 18 '12 at 22:10
    
@DavidT. - no, I haven't tried another app. I don't want to add yet another app to my phone, and I don't know why you'd think having a separate app would fix the issue the native app is having. –  EmmyS Nov 18 '12 at 22:11
