I think you missed the point here. I have the information in the contacts BIRTHDAY field on the iPhone. What I would expect is that the information would then be shown in the Calendar application on that specified day!There's an OPTION in CONTACTS when in EDIT mode to ADD FIELD and BIRTHDAY is an OPTION.
Or you can add it in ADDRESS BOOK and it will SYNC over.
Those are the things I do and I've had no problem.
yep, this totally works. if i add a birthday to a contact on my iPhone, it will show up in the calendar after i sync it to ical on my mac.There is a way to get your contact's birthday's to show up in the calendar, but you have to do it through iCal on your Mac. Go to preferences in iCal, and under "General", check mark "Show Birthdays Calendar".
Not sure how this would work for those on Windows.
It seems strange that the Contacts field 'Birthday' does not show up in the Calendar - how nice would that have been!
Or at least a way to see all Birthday's in one view - like a Calendar list.
