well, that would certainly be pretty odd/daft/pointless/full-of-lock- 
in-badness if it were true...

(Sadly, even if Apple helps work on an opensource CalDAV server they  
are accused of lockin ;-)

any iPhone running iPhone OS 3.x supports CalDAV accounts

on the iPhone, just go to home screen - Settings - Mail, Contacts,  
Calendars - Add Account...

then see the screenshots here:



1) choose Other (bottom option)


2) Add CalDav Account (I know, I know, it's not the logical choice,  
but trust me...)


3) Very simply enter server, user name/account and password


4) The CalDAV account will look like this

Under Advanced Settings, you will see a complicated server url like:  
but you won't need to type that in yourself

grtz, JJ
