    Does anyone know how to sync my contacts birthdays (those that don't have a Facebook) with my calendar?? My calendar displays all my Facebook friends bdays but not my contacts without a facebook. I have to manually enter their bday in calendar even though I added it to the contact info...is there a setting to automatically add these contacts bdays??

    I was actually looking at facebook birthdays for someone today and noticed none of the non facebook people's birthdays would sync up. Haven't figured it out yet

    Try going to your Google Calendar on line. On the left side under "Other Calendars" you will see an "add" click on it and choose "Browse Interesting Calendars" Then under the "Other" tab choose "Contacts Birthdays and Events" Subscribe to that. It takes time to sync but works for me.

    Your close. Above the first country there are three tabs, "Holidays, Sports and More". You need to click the "More" then you will see the "Contacts Birthdays and Events"

    That works...totally missed the "more" tab last night when I was checking into it

    did this
    google calendar from desktop click add under other calendars click browse interesting calendars then click more and click contacts birthdays and events, then go to your phone and hit menu, settings, accounts and sync, gmail, calendar to sync calendar and they will be there!

    woohoo thanks Kenster!

    Did anyone else notice that you can subscribe to your favorite sports team's schedule? I did this and it shows all the games and times they are playing at and also gives you the scores of the games already played. This is a great feature.:D
