    I am VERY frustrated that I can not seem to figure this out. I have never had this problem with any other phone!! It has always been automatic, but for some reason on the incredible it is not. All I want is for any birthdays or anniversaries that I enter on the contact card to show up on the calendar. What is the point of having them on the contact card if they don't show up on my calendar too??!!!

    if you sync your contacts with google, you have to go to google calendar and add the calendar: Contact's Birthdays

    Im not sure how to add them if you just have contacts on your phone (which you should not in the first place)

    I exported all of my phone contacts to my SD card and then imported them into google as I saw in a previous thread, but events are still not showing on my calendar. As an added bonus, after doing this I now have 3 entries for each contact.....AWESOME! I am about ready to go back to my env3.....

    For anybody wondering how to do this,

    Go to your Google Calendar
    Under "Other Calendars" section on the left, click add and choose "Browse Interesting Calendars"
    Choose the "More" tab
    And click "Subscribe" next to "Contat's Birthdays and Events"
    On your phone go to "settings>accounts and sync>google" and sync now

    Hope that helps,
