Hi,

Do you think the iPhone will give me an announcement when birthdays come around? I put everyone's birthdays in the contact section. It would be nice if it did.

ical doesn't sync up with birthdats in contacts

make a test contact and add the bday as today and let us know...
i don't think it will work. i have had all the birthdays on my mac contacts updated but it's not tied to calendars. how lame. i had to manually go to ical and add people's birthdays. come on Apple -this one is obvious

I'm pretty sure it doesn't, by default. I saved my friend's, and it did nothing when his birthday rolled around. :p

If you put the birthdays in as Events in your Outlook calendar, they'll work, but it won't create events strictly from the contact information. I've got all relatives and close friends' birthdays set up as day long events with one week reminders. That gives me plenty of time to get birthday gifts and cards in the mail.
