    Updated to GB and lost birthdays and anniversaries for contacts. Try to edit contacts on phone and these fields no longer exist?

    That would make me VERY unhappy. The more I read about GB, the more I wonder if I want to upgrade.

    Yeah, mine does the same exact thing. It was really odd.

    Mine are still there. I have used Gmail from day one with Android, so that may be why. They display in a different format (yyyy-mm-dd) but they are there.

    If you want/need to add birthdays you can always do it from Gmail. Go to Gmail on your computer. Select Contacts on the left side of the screen. Select the contact you want to edit. 4th field down should be Birthday. You can change this to Anniversary by clicking the word Birthday next to the field. If it's not, click the Add button under the fields and select Birthday from the dropdown list.

    I agree, not all of us sync our contacts with gmail.

    A workaround? Sync your account with Google?

    Sync with Google. It's the only way I've been able to do it. I disabled the Backup Assistant and only backup with my main Google account.

    And yes, it might be stupid, but if you think about it, it IS an Android phone. They probably want people to use Google services instead of the phone company's.
