    Is it me, or does the calendar on Android 1.5 (HTC Hero) badly suck? I came from a Nokia, and there were many basic functions that seem to be missing/hard to figure out.

    1. Birthdays. On my Nokia, you put someones DOB it, and in your calendar there is a reminder about their birthday and how old they will be. It seems I can enter a contacts DOB in the contacts, but I don't get reminders in my calendar, Which kinda sucks.

    2. Meetings vs Reminders. It seems everything needs a start and stop time, which is rubbish, many things "pay a bill" just need a reminder.

    3. Importing VCal seemed to totally disregard my recurring calendar entires (I exported from Nokia to VCal and from VCal into HTC).

    4. Syncing Contacts with Google. This does not seem to happen for me. All my contacts are "phone" contacts (rather than "SIM" or "Google"). Can I convert them all Google contacts? Will this keep things all their details intact, including photo and things like facebook account details?

    5. Keyboard layout seems rather US centric, with $ easily accessible but
