    I just got my Droid Three Days ago and I love it syncing everything together in my contacts list (FBook and Google Contacts all Syncing)

    However the one thing it doesn't do so far that I'd really like to make it do is take my Birthdays from my Contacts List and Automatically place them on my Calender. (Even with the computer it's a lot of work to put it on my G-mail calender)

    Are there any Apps that could assist in this?

    There's a way to do this in Gmail -- I know because I did it once upon a time.

    To the best of my recollection, you have to add a calendar to your Gmail account, and I think "Contact birthdays" is one. It pulls all the birthday information from your contacts and puts it on a separate calendar. Then you have Gmail just show both calendars at once.

    Again, I know I did this and it was fairly easy, and it works great. I just can't remember the details... maybe because it was so quick and easy.

    go to: google calendar on the computer, settings, calendars, browse interesting calendars, contacts birthdays and events. This will automatically put them on the calendar, online and on phone.

    Yup, that's the (only) way. Unfortunately, the calendar entry does not show age, and does not allow you to open the contact entry from the calendar entry.

    Android does not even sync birthdays&anniversaries :)eek::mad:!) so forget about doing it on the phone.

    That was surprisingly simplistic yet very accurate. Thank you!

    Being new to android the contact functionality is easily the worst aspect of making the switch. Its the only place I really lost coming from winmo and its a sore spot beings as contacting people is primarily my usage.
