    Does anyone who syncs their Facebook contacts with their Pre notice that it doesn't synch their birthdays in your calendar? I find it rather odd my FB contacts birthday is in my contacts but NOT in my calendar. Whats the point? Is there a way to fix this?

    Thnx.

    I've wondered the same thing. And there is no notification of someone's birthday for that day.

    Most likely excuse - they'll fix it in a future update

    That function is not yet available yet. It will notice events and place them on your Pre but birthdays alone, not yet.

    There is a workaround...Birthday exporter for facebook makes an iCal file that you can import into Google Calendar and have all the birthdays on facebook in your calendar.

    now is there a way to have the birthdays automatically go into your google calendar?

    the birthday exporter is nice, but when you add a friend, i am assuming, that friend's birthday will not show up...

    if I go to "events" in my facebook, the birthdays are there, why can't it go to my calendar in my pre, I have it checked to sync with facebook...

    thanks for any help

    I guess that that could possible work but remember the awesome part of the Pre/Pixi is that they syncronize everything into one place on your phone but DON'T mess with the origional places (keeping each event to its own source) It would be a mess if stuff started putting itself into all your calendar sources

    It pretty simple. Facebook does not put birthdays in your Facebook Calendar. If you click on "Events" in facebook you will see that the birthdays are not in there. If they were then they would show up in your facebook calendar on your pre. For palm to manually add them it would mean that Palm would have to break their own synergy rules to do so. Not a good idea.

    Here's what you need. fbCal.com - Facebook Calendar Generator

    Add that as a Google Calendar and it will show up on your Pre. When a new friend is added, it automatically is included in the feed to the google calendar and thus your Pre.

    This is the workaround I've been using. Only downside is there is no notification....but it will be there on your Calendar. This also assumes your friend has populated and made available their Birthday on their FB profile.

    Make sure you use the "Subscription" for Google and not just the iCal file.

    I had issues with fbCal, personally, though the above-mentioned Birthday Exporter works great for me.
