Like to keep Gmail account but like to remove Google Calendar
« on: September 20, 2013, 09:34:54 PM »
I have not been able to remove Google Calendar from my N7, Jellybean..version4.2.2
My Agenda Widget  Plus is working well but Google Calendar usually shows "no event".  I really don't need two calendars and would like to just remove the Google one but would like to keep my Google Account with the Gmail.
Does anybody know how to go about doing it?
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.  Ann

Swipe down from the top of the top right side of the screen, tap settings, scroll down to Accounts, tap Google, tap your Google account name, then remove the check from the features that you do not want to synchronize, like your calendar.

Removing system apps is usually not a good idea. You can freeze them when rooted with Titanium and disable them with the stock ROM but I agree with Prime. Just uncheck the sync. Usually less issues that way.

No need to freeze it, just disable the calendar app...

Pull down the Quick settings, select Settings and then Apps. Now swipe from right to left twice to access the "All" applications tab, scroll down to fond Google calendar and choose Disable. Now the calendar application will no longer appear in your app draw.

Thank you to everybody who took the time to write!
I appreciate the detailed instruction , JayJ.
  When I first turn on my Nexus, Agenda Plus tells me what is on my calendar for that day, which is great.
I also like Google Calendar to show the month, week or day. What I don't like is that Google Calendar sends an email telling me what the schedule for that day is but most of the time it shows "no events" when there are a number of them.
This was the only part I had hoped to disable or remove. Now I see that this is not possible. So, I will just have to ignore the "no events".
Most of all,  thank you for your suggestions!!
