    OK so my contacts are on gmail and synced onto my phone.

    Some of the gmail contacts have date of birth/birthday info. However in the phone contacts i cant add the date of birth/birthday field to view this info on the phone.

    Sometimes i need to check the date of birth of family when asked for ID etc.

    Yes the birthdays are synced on the calender, but i want them in the contacts too so i can just check quickly, instead of going through months.

    is their any way round this?

    Under Contacts on the phone, there is no field for date of birth.

    So you want to add a stat for a field that doesn't exist?

    Maybe retype that information into the Others field.

    Or search the app store for another app. Using the default contacts app, they don't have a field for date of birth.

    I think Contact Editor Free allows you to enter birthdays, under the 'event' category.

    Mind you, I thought the default apps allowed this too?

    Certainly HTC People and Google's default Contact Editor allow this.

    Contact View Free also shows you the event (birthday) fields along with a year count so you know how old they are now.

    The contacts in the phone actually does have the birthday field you can enter. Just click add field and select Event, then from the box select Birthday or Anniversay or a custom field.
