    Hello-Just wondering how everyone is entering yearly recurring items in the Pre's calendar? I have yearly reminders like birthdays, anniversaries, car inspection, etc....but can't figure out how to tell the Pre they are yearly. I don't even see anything for "every 12 months" or "every 365 days". What am I missing? Thanks!

    Nothing. That functionality has not yet been added to the calendar as far as I can tell. Maybe it's an option when syncing with Google, Yahoo, or Exchange calendars, but there is no way to directly input yearly reminders that I am aware of. Perhaps there is a home-brew app for that?

    just had a look and you can only put up to 99days (on 1.13 at least)
    the easiest way to do it would be with google calender, set it up on there to be yearly and sync to the pre

    Wow, that is so lame. This a one of the very most basic functions. Although I do sync with Google, why should we have to - just to do something so simple? Unbelievable!

    When you setup the event, under "Repeat" select "Custom" then touch the default "Daily" and you will get several options -- Weekly, Monthly on the xxth, Monthly on the 3rd (or other) Thursday, Yearly on ....." The only option I find missing is "Monthly on the LAST Monday" which I could then set to occur every 12 months in order to identify Memorial Day.

    Nice, thanks for the info. I was hoping it was just buried somewhere we were missing. Thanks again!

    Not exactly an intuitive placement of the feature. Appreciate the info.

    This is just one of the reasons I miss DateBk6 that I had on my 700p.

    Than you very much for that descption, it was indeed a bit hidden.

    Strange that the Pre is not able to sync birthdays from a Treo using the DTA tool when its in fact possible to setup up recurring events once a year.

    i see how to change it to yearly but it won't appear on Pre after creating it on yahoo's website. Is anyone else having a similar problem where birthdays and anniversaries (or any other yearly repeating event) are not syncing correctly to/from your laptop/Pre
