    Hi All.

    I've recently purchased a HTC Desire HD, and i'm wondering is it
    possible to add multiple birthdays into one contact.
    For such things a friend children, or other people associated with that contact.

    If you go to Gmail in your desktop browser and view your contacts, you can add other dates, including "custom", which lets you specify a name for the field. You could add dates for "Son's Birthday" or something similar. I don't know of a way to do this on an Android device though.

    Thanks UncleMike
    Yea that's works but doesn't import into the phone.

    Or is the only way to do this is thru a Birthday Widget or the Calendar

    I sync all of my contacts with Outlook and one thing I discovered with that was that it was much easier to separate out all contacts. For example, I used to have, say, 'Mr and Mrs John Smith'. They would share the same address and landline phone BUT have separate mobile numbers and it became a pain to sort through the contact details to get the correct mobile for the person I wanted (partly because when I did this I was using a 'bog standard' Nokia non-smart phone so tricky to see which little icon popped up beside the number). When their kids got mobile it becomes impossible. Separating them out makes life so much easier.
