    Has anyone else noticed that when you sync "my calendar" with facebook it duplicates birthdays? Sometimes even triples! I removed "my calendar" option in calendar, but now all the birthdays are gone --I want it to show birthdays just not duplicates of them! Any advice? HELP!? Thanks!

    Did you get this figured out? I'm having the same problem with duplicate birthdays, and have tried numerous things, but either get 2 or none! Thanks.

    Your original post was months ago, but I wanted to add my 2 cents (better late than never.....)

    The duplication issue is a result of the non-uninstallable HTC Sense "feature" that is preloaded on their phones. The only solution that I've found to delete all of the duplicate calendar entries is to:

    1) Calendar>More>Calendars, deselect the Facebook calendar.
    2) Settings>Accounts, remove the "Facebook for HTC" account (or Facebook for Touch on a myTouch 4g)
    3) Reboot the phone
    4) Go back to settings and add the Facebook account again.
    5) Calendar>More and select the Facebook checkbox.

    The reboot step is not entirely necessary, but I do it anyway.

    Thanks, djfazzyf! The multiples thing has been bugging me since I got the phone. Your "fix" is PERFECT!
