    Is it possible to have my facebook birthdays and events sync with the phone calendar? I would love a way to do this.

    I should have clarified, I've tried exporting my Facebook calendar, and I've also used FBcal, which I assume that article refers to (can't check it, I'm at work and it's blocked), but FBcal doesn't work. The birthday events never show up on the calendar in Google.

    I've read a lot of things about FBcal formatting the ICS file incorrectly, and I've tried to resolve the issue, but it never worked for me before. I was hoping someone had another way.

    Saving from fbcal, then importing that file into Google Cal worked for me. I just wish there was a way to keep them synced as I add friends etc.

    Bleh. I tried that too and it still didn't work. I even tried modifying the ICS file in various different ways. I just can't get any of the events to show up in Google Calendar.

    My friend has a Palm Pre and he said his facebook calendar automatically syncs with the calendar on his phone. I am going to ask him what he does or how he did it and maybe that will work on the Droid.

    I use the method on post#2 and it works fine. However....Goggle only checks FB something like once a day and you are currently not allowed to increase that frequency....so if you can live with at least a 24 hour delay before it shows up on your phone......that method works....

    Good to know. If it syncs once per day, that makes sense. :)

    One other question. Does it take time to load into GMail calendar on the web? I located copied/pasted the URL as the instructions state. The calendar was created, but with no events on the web. Does the push take time to the actual GMail calendar and not just to the phone?

    Where in FB are you finding the FBcal file to export? Just to reiterate the FB calendar shows birthdays and events right. As for the events, will it just show the ones you selected that you WILL attend?

    Any tips on how to get facebook birthdays to NOT show up on my calendar? Something happened, and they suddenly appeared and filled up my calendar. I do not like this.

    Does this work for Facebook birthdays?
    The app Ebobirthday from the market can sync your Facebook friends bdays with your google Calender. Just tried it and it works flawlessly. Hope this helps.

    thats one of the Pre benefits.
    It syncs contacts, calendards, mail, IM, etc. with Exchange, Gmail, Facebook, LinkedIn, Yahoo and whatnot.

    thats a feature of the Pre webOS system called "synergy".
