Having all my facebook contacts who have their mobile nos on their profile coming up in my contacts and all the ones with their birthdays coming up in my calendar. Any idea how I can stop this because it's annoying having all this info I don't want amongst the stuff I do.
i am using HTC desire(Android) and i am pretty much happy with the performance. The issue i wanna discuss here is that my phone does not sync the birthdays from my phone contact details to the calender, as it was availabe in my previous phone HTC Touch diamond, i used to feed the birthday details along with the contact and it syncs those birthdays with the calender when i used to sync it manually with the help of computer. But no such option is availabe in Android. please don't reply with the 'synching birthday contact and events' from google calender. I've seen loads of forums on that , but that ain't related to my problem. i want synchronization of my phone contact's birthday details to the phone calender.
I added the birthday to a contact the other day but it didn't appear in my calendar on the phone, even though I have the Google 'Contacts' birthdays and events' enabled and it has worked fine in the past.
To cut a long story short when I add a birthday a new entry is created in the Google calendar but it doesn't appear on the phone even after multiple syncs. The only way to get it to appear (or to get the test ones I tried, to disappear) was to remove the calendar from the phone and then add it again (Calendars>Menu>Remove----Menu>Add).
It seems neither the Facebook synced birthdays along with the birthday dates manually input into contacts profiles don't show on the calendar. Any quick way of getting around having to do this manually?
Does anyone know how to sync my contacts birthdays (those that don't have a Facebook) with my calendar?? My calendar displays all my Facebook friends bdays but not my contacts without a facebook. I have to manually enter their bday in calendar even though I added it to the contact info...is there a setting to automatically add these contacts bdays?
how do i make the calendar show birthdays from all my contacts in People? it seems to only show Facebook birthdays. but some people in FB didn't enter their birthday in their profile. so i entered it manually into People but it doesn't show their birthday in HTC calendar widget.
Just wondering if it's possible to have events created automatically, in Google calendar, for birthdays taken from from my contacts. I have synced all my Facebook contacts' birthdays with my Google contacts using Uber Facebook sync (or some other totally rad hipster name) - although they are not visible anywhere (is this even possible?).
Any easily maintainable way to receive birthday reminders? I don't want to manually create events annually.
Kind of annoying having the little arrow to say there's an event on practically every single day on the HTC Calendar widget. This wasn't the case before the other day so I'm assuming it's a 2.2 thing, not sure though.
As far as I can tell there's no way to hide them either, and it was done automatically. Just because I have a person on my FB doesn't mean I care so much when their birthday is. It dilutes my calendar and means I can't tell when my actual important things are happening
And don't say "use another calendar app", I'm otherwise happy with this, it's simple and does what I need of it
I spent a fair while setting up my screens and finally got to putting in my contacts last nite. I entered my contacts manually one by one on the phone itself using the add contact on the people menu. This was all fine until i checked my phone this morning. All of the people I added to the contacts whose birthday i also added to there contact details have disappeared. It is only the people who i entered there birthday though, in otherwords all the important people. Have i done something daft (quite possible) or is this a glitch?
In Google Contacts I've entered birthdays and subscribed to the "Contacts' birthdays and events" calendar in Google Calendar.They show up as intended in Google Calendar but in my phones calendar they're all listed twice. Unsubscribing from the contacts birthdays calendar makes both disappear, so they're not from some other calendar.Is this a bug in the Galaxy S calendar? Any solutions?
I have the contacts birthday's and events enable in my google calendar, I'm able to see them on the desktop, but they are not showing up in the phone's app. It is checked for sync and visible in the calendars config. Also other special sports calendar that I have are not showing.
I am new to the Android system and have just started to play with my Evo, and I am loving just about everything about it, save one glaring issue. When I synced by contacts with my facebook account, the birthdays of all 500+ facebook friends were synced to my calendar. I use my calendar a lot to keep up with school deadlines and exam dates, and it is now cluttered beyond use. I love being able to sync my contacts with facebook, but do not want the birthdays to appear on my calendar, is there any way to remove all of the birthdays from the calendar at once and/or keep facebook from syncing with my calendar?
I bought my HTC Legend a few days ago. Today I've pressed "sync all" and now my calendar is FULL of my Facebook friends' birthdays - it's annoying as hell since I'm using the calendar to keep precious dates and appointments in it... how can I remove them?
So I have all my contacts synced with their Facebook profile. I've ticked to use their profile pic and birthday in their contact info. When I go to any contacts details it has the little blue Facebook F next to their photo and also next to their birthday, so I know that it's all synced.
The one problem I do have is when I go in to my calendar none of the birthdays are listed.
I've gone in to the Calendar menu and checked that I have Contact Birthday and Events calendar ticked and listed.
My Google calendar is showing fine and syncing between the phone and the web.
Is this just some bug where Facebook birthdays don't show up in the Calendar? I know there are other ways around this but it'd be nice if the contact info was used better. I was kind of excited about being able to view my contacts events with the calendar, I could of easily seen what I could and could not attend.
Also an extra note, the Contact Birthday and Event Calendar does have some birthdays in it. It has mine and it also has a friend whose Facebook profile I have not linked.
i have all my contacts and calendar in my google account. I added a birthday to one of my contacts (on the web version of my contacts google.com/contacts) and it shows up as expected in the web version of the calendar google.com/calendar (see screenshot).
However, when i view my calendar on the nexus 4 (stock calendar app), the new entry fails to show up, even though all calendars are fully synced etc (see screenshot).
I have checked the contact details on both google.com/contacts and on the phone and the added birthday shows up correctly, it's just doesn't seem to want to appear on the phone version of the calendar. I have checked that all calendars are synced on the phone (see screenshot)
I have tried clearing the app data and cache for the calendar app - no change.
Without having to add notifications to each one. I figured out how to add a calendar for all my contacts birthdays so that they automatically show up in my calendar (some of them even twice for some reason) but I see no option to add notifications to these. Someone on the forum helped me add the contacts birthday calendar and mentioned he had a 3-day advance notification in case he forgot to get them a gift.
I was wondering if there is a way to sync birthdays in the "people" app from HTC to the calendar. The "people" app does an awesome job of pulling birthdays from my contacts' facebook page but I could not find a way to add the birthdays to my calendar.
I would like to do this without having to manually enter all the dates. Is there any way to sync the contact birthdays and anniversaries to my google calendar without manually updating? Im running launcher pro using the calendar widget so it would be nice to see the dates on the calendar.
I am Using Sony Xperia Mini on Android 4.2.2. The Problem is Google Calendar Doesnt Show the Birthday Events Which i have added in Contact Details. It shows only if add manualy any event. I have ticked all the options under Account Sync. Still the Problem Persists. And Strangely This same problem Occured even in GB,IC,JB even CM too.
I have all my contacts in my googlemail account. When I go to settings/Accounts & Sync on my Desire, and sync, it seems to sync from the Desire to my googlemail page on my PC, but not the other way round - which is a problem for me because all the correct contacts are on my PC. It also tends to duplicate or even triplicate most of contacts. On the PC there is the merge setting, but not on the Desire. I've tried deleting all my contacts on the Desire, but syncing doesn't repopulate it.
I have all my appointments on my Desire calendar, which seems to only sync from my PC to the Desire. As I enter my appointments on the Desire, and would like to have them on my PC, this, too, is a problem.
Anybody have any idea why my contacts which are also my FB friends have birthdays listed in the People Profile a day before their actual birthday? When I look on their FB profile, the date is correct. When I look in their contact info in my phone, its a day off. And how would I go about fixing it b/c I can't edit FB information for other people?
I'm seriously thinking of upgrading my MDA Vario III to an HTC Desire.I'm getting on a bit and a bit stuck in Windows mode, so Android sounds a scary world. My questions are as below: How easy is it to synch calendar & contacts from MS Outlook Express to Desire (and vice versa)? I'm using Win XP on my PC, if that's significant. Is there an Excel type app for Android? I have a few spreadsheets I like to keep on my moby, backed up on my PC.
I am trialing gcal because at some point i might switch to gmail and gcal completely from outlook/yahoo. All entries that i input in gcal sync to my phone fine but any new entries that i input into my phone do not sync to gcal. I have checked sync settings on my Desire are turned on for calendar and contacts. Syncing via mobile web instead of wifi. All previous calendar items have syncd to gcal but any new items that i put into my desire calendar don't sync to gcal or vice versa. I also can't get any of my contacts from my desire to sync to gmail webclient. (this is the first time im starting to use it for email instead of just android market).
