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.
My 'accounts & sync' settings have always had 'facebook' turned off for syncing, and I have never turned it on. Yet this morning i was playing around with the bit in 'people' to try and see if the facebook bit in there worked and i would be able to link a contact in there with their facebook account. It asked me to log into facebook (after which incidentally it could not then find the contact in facebook lol). After that i went to the calendar and it now shows ALL 2500 facebook contacts birthdays!!
Please tell me there is a way to undo this. at no point did i ever select auto facebook syncing, or choose to import facebook calendar. Obviously now the calendar is pretty unusable as there are multiple bithdays on every day.
Can i get rid of facebook sync'ing, pics and especially birthdays...the phone did it one day automatically, I never wanted it to do this...I dont care about 90% of these folks birthdays, really...(i am kinda cold like that...)
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?
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?
Since the 2.2 update I have had double Facebook birthdays showing in my calendar. 1 from the old method of posting the URL in google calendars and the other from Facebook under the calendar option. After trying over and over to erase the original way from my phone with no luck, I decided to just delete my Gmail calendar all together and then reload it onto my phone. Once I did that, I restored my Gmail calendar and made sure the Facebook calendar option is checked. Now, I have NO Facebook birthdays at all. No matter how many times I check, uncheck and refresh the calendar, the birthdays refuse to come back.
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?
After figuring out how to sync my Facebook contacts with my phone contacts, I found that I now have the birthdays of all my Facebook friends on my Jorte calendar. Does anybody have any idea on how to remove this?
I have a question about facebook calendars. I really want to start using the calendar on my phone more often to stay organized (EVO 4g). I also like the idea of having my friends' birthdays auto load into events from facebook. However, I don't want ALL the birthdays of my facebook friends on my cal, if that makes sense.
In other words, I have too many friends. Does anyone know how to manually choose which birthdays you get events for? Or is it simply time to start dumping some excess facebook friendage?
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 found my calendar was lacking birthdays so I recently imported all(some) of my facebook contacts' birthdays to my phone and I'd though I'd share the method i used here
Go to this facebook application called Birthday Exporter Press 'Download iCal file' and save it somewhere you can find it again. Now go to Google Calendar Under the tab 'My Calendars'(to the left), press 'Create' and create a new calendar called Facebook Birthdays (or whatever you wish) Now click Settings (upper right corner) > Calendars (under the title) > Import Calendar. Now import the ics file from step two to the 'Facebook Birthdays' calendar, which imports all the birthdays as all-day events repeating each year. Now you're free to either: Keep this calendar as an 'external' calendar which will show up on your phone calendar in a different color if you acces the MENU > More > My Calendars Select which birthdays you'd like to import into your personal calendar by clicking on them in the calendar and import to personal calendar, remembering to select yearly repeats (I chose this way as i only chose to keep about 20% of the birthdays it imported in my own personal calendar)
The list bbcodes don't seem to work well on my browser.
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.
On my phone I have the Facebook app downloaded from the market. I also noticed that the phone comes bookmarked with Facebook.
So here is my question, under Menu>Settings>Social Network> Facebook appears there. I have that set to update every 12 hours.
HOWEVER, my actual Facebook App is set to update every 2 hours.
So... does the settings under Menu>Settings>Social Network>Facebook control my facebook app or just the bookmark that comes pre-installed on the phone?
I am trying to save battery life, and I noticed that the settings under Menu>Settings>Social Network>Facebook were set to update every hour, but I had the settings under the downloaded app to update every two hours. My goal is to have only one facebook medium updating so I don't drain battery life!
I just cleared all my browsing history, cache, form data and all that stuff. Then I went to my bookmarks, where I have the touch.facebook.com bookmarked. I type in my username and password and tap the "login" key. I see the green status bar at the bottom of the screen start to go, but the page just loops. It does not login. Just keeps refreshing... if that makes sense. What am I doing wrong ?
I have the EVO and I added the Facebook application. It added every single Facebook friend's birthday. I don't want these on my phone calender and when I go to Menu, there is no Delete option for these birthdays! I can only edit/delete birthday's I added myself on the phone!
I imported all my contacts from Outlook 2007, and this included birthday info and (wedding) anniversay info for various friends and family.
However, I can't seem to find a way to link this info (which is in the contact info) to the built in calendar on the Desire, which is quite annoying as I would like to be able to browse through my calendar and easily spot upcoming birthdays etc.
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?
I have birthday details for some of my contacts entered into my googlemail account.then I click Phone from the home screen and then select the a contact the Birthday section under information shows one day earlier, e.g. birthday set as 25th August shows as 24/08. Is this a known bug, and if not how do I report it to HTC?
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 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.
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?
I just got my Droid Three Days ago and I love it syncing everything together in my contacts list (FBook and Google Contacts all Syncing)However the one thing it doesn't do so far that I'd really like to make it do is take my Birthdays from my Contacts List and Automatically place them on my Calender. (Even with the computer it's a lot of work to put it on my G-mail calender)Are there any Apps that could assist in this?
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?
