Can I use the Google Market without syncing other Google data?


I'd like to setup a personal calendar with Funambol's syncing application. My goal is to never let my calendar items go on Google servers, for privacy reasons. But I do have Google Calendar application (from a stock ROM, so not easily uninstallable).

From what I understand, Funambol Sync Client synchronizes with a system-wide calendar, the same which is used by Google Calendar client. Will this make my items sync with remote Google Calendar if I launch Google's client (f.e. by mistake)?

I still want to use Google account for Market--and only for it. How can I enforce a no-synchronization rule only for calendar items?

I think I could remove /system/app/Calendar.apk (my phone is rooted), but doesn't Google services synchronize using GTalkService?

  • I'm tackling the same problem, but from a different approach. Some of the available calendar applications are too good to avoid using, so I am looking at rooting & firewalling instead.

Just turn off sync in Settings -> Accounts and sync. You can specifically turn off Calendar syncing for a particular account in that menu, as well.

  • I don't see how can I turn off Calendar syncing only. In Account and sync there is Auto-sync checkbox to control syncing globally and my Google account entry. When I tap my account, there is only Sync Contacts, Sync Gmail and Sync Calendar, which allow to sync manually.

  • I see no checkbox there. Just a text Touch to sync now with each entry. This is a Motorola Milestone with stock 2.1 ROM.

    The option definitely exists in 2.2 & 2.3 - might be worth thinking about installing a custom ROM? Apr 14, 2011 at 16:27
