    Hi, just got a Motorola Backflip and I have the Facebook android app for it. My Facebook contacts have synced but I have no seen a place or way to sync my Facebook events/calendar with my device calendar. Is there a way to do this? Thanks!

    That would be great if you could, not sure it's possible though...

    1. Go to this facebook application called Birthday Exporter
    2. Press 'Download iCal file' and save it somewhere you can find it again.
    3. Now go to Google Calendar
    4. Under the tab 'My Calendars'(to the left), press 'Create' and create a new calendar called Facebook Birthdays (or whatever you wish)
    5. Now click Settings (upper right corner) > Calendars (under the title) > Import Calendar.
    6. Now import the ics file from step two to the 'Facebook Birthdays' calendar, which imports all the birthdays as all-day events repeating each year.
    7. Now you're free to either:

    • Keep this calendar as an 'external' calendar which will show up on your phone calendar in a different color if you acces the MENU > More > My Calendars
    • Select which birthdays you'd like to import into your personal calendar by clicking on them in the calendar and import to personal calendar, remembering to select yearly repeats

    EDIT: Oops, this functionality is now gone from the most recent Facebook redesign. Sorry!

    If you have a Google calendar, you can set up your Facebook events to be one of the calendars you display (which you can then sync to your phone).
