Remarks

Windows Phone provides an aggregated view of the user’s calendar data across the user's different accounts. Information can come from sources such as data entered in the phone itself, social networking sites, and other data service providers. Not all data from all service providers is exposed publicly through this API. The StorageKind enumeration lists the possible sources of data.
