Thank you! I wasn't aware of any place where permissions would have been
set, but after some time looking around I found a check-box for "Enable
Privacy Guard" that I un-checked.  After that, both the calendar and
address book sychronized successfully.  It took a long time but it's
now done.

That was another issue.  DAVdroid 1.9.1 was apparently using some
incorrect library.  Downgrading to 1.9 solved that issue.  1.9.1 has
been removed from f-droid last I checked.

The only other phones I have handy are iPhones (4S and 6).  I don't
know much about iPhones (these were given to me) , but everything I've
tried has been met with blocks.  Neither phone is connected to a phone
company, I wanted to use them as wifi only, but it appears that doing
anything at all without an apple ID is impossible, so I presume
connecting to a CalDAV/CardDAV server (other than apple's presumably)
is not possible by design.

Does anyone know if it's possible to install Replicant on iPhones?
My guess is that it's impossible.

Thank you very much for taking the time.
