Sync Your Calendar and Contacts

By default, only your e-mail is synced when you setup an e-mail account on your Android. If you’d like to sync your phone with your Buffalo State calendar and/or contacts, follow these steps:

1. From your Home screen, select Settings.
2. From the Settings screen, tap the Accounts button.
3. Tap the button for your Buffalo State account.
4. Check the options next to Calendar and/or Contacts, and tab OK.

Note Android phones have "data push" enabled as the default email delivery/synchronization option. If enabled, this option can quickly drain your phone’s battery. It is recommended that you disable "push" and enable "fetch" instead as the email delivery option. Check your phone’s manual for instructions.
