    I was using DateMate on my Treo for birthdays, now with the Pre I was thinking if I will get notified about a birthday if I just enter the birthday on my contacts. Does it alert you? or should I add them to the calendar as a recurring event? How are you guys handling this?

    I'm using a google account and created a calendar specifically for birthdays.

    I hope I get an alert because I put them under my contacts.

    Add an additional calendar in the interim. The birthday's in the contacts don't pop up on your calendar that I've seen.

    Yeah, I don't like that it doesn't place the birthdays in the calendar. Palm, fix this!

    Does Google Contacts remind/notify you if the birthday is in their calendar?

    I created a birthday calendar as one of my google calendars. Nice thing about it is you can set reminders. What I did is set a default reminder globally for the calendar but it is nice as you can set custom reminders for specific entries if you like.

    Yea, I almost missed a birthday today as well. What's the point of having it in the contact list if their is no reminder?
