    Default Birthday wrong for linked contacts

    All of a sudden, the birthdays for my linked contacts are one day earlier. For example, May 15 is showing May 14. Although if I click edit contact, the right bday is showing (May 14). I am at a loss on how and why this is occurring. The bday info is pulled from fbook. Thank you!

    My wife just pointed that out last night. She said my birthday is wrong and it was off by one day. I have no idea where the birthday feeds from, perhaps FaceBook. Anyway, there is a bug somewhere.

    Same issue here, but for some strange reason it doesn't happen with all my contacts. Some of them show the correct birthday, and others show it a day earlier. For me the ones that always show incorrectly, are those contacts I have set up as family members on Facebook.

    I thought this issue was fixed after the last OS update, as for a while all my contact's birthdays were showing correctly... but I just noticed that they're back to a day early again.

    If i am correct in what you guys are saying. this is not an error. this is the reminder telling you one day in advance of the peoples birthday. if you go into the calendar it will tell you the birthday is the next day, and also in the reminder as well.

    it just happens one day advanced. I wish I knew how to change that.

    Nope, I don't have Facebook calendar reminders activated. I was just talking about the birthday field in my contacts list, where those birthdays that are pulled from Facebook are showing a day early.

    This isn't a bug, it's a feature. If you forget your friend's birthday, you can blame the phone.

    When you set up Facebook it gives you the choice as to when he would like it to place the reminder in your calendar. If defaults to 24 hrs before the date. How ever you can change it to on the day of. That is what I did anyway.

    Go to settings accounts Facebook and look at the bottom. Birthday reminders.

    Guys listen to the OP. This isn't a feature of the z10, I have this problem too, says some my contacts Bdays are a day before in their contact profile. We are not speaking of when the reminder appears. Some how it's populating the wrong date. This is a bug since what if you're looking at a contacts birth date to file paperwork, you don't want your phone compensating for when you should start giving birthday wishes.

    Edit: @mooda - I have mine set to on the day at 9am - but this is for reminders, the problem lies in the contact's profile.

    Edit2: I also remember despite the date displaying as the 21st, I got a reminder on the 22nd of Feb for my contact's birthday. So I think it is only to do with the OS and not fb

    Perhaps the difference is between people who installed Z10 without the software update and with Facebook, vs those who got Facebook after the Z10 update?

    Hopefully the problem can be narrowed down and fixed by either BBRY or FB team(s).

    I have th software 10.0.10.90 and the bug is there too. Some of my Facebook contacts are displayed with a wrong birthday (by one day) but when I edit, it shows the right date. On the reminder is set up to ring on the same day at 9am.

    That makes no sense. Facebook is a native app, it's part of the OS.

    It's a bug. Others have been experiencing the same issue.

    On Facebook on the z10, the birthday is correct but on the linked contact it is a day early! Makes no sense!

    I have no idea why it's a day off. It's even correct when you try to edit a contact.

    Apparently a Facebook update is supposed to come this week to address the problem with messages not being pushed to the phone/hub. Hopefully it will address this problem too as I'm also affected.

    Hi, I'm on a Q10 and I experience a similar issue. For some of my contacts, the birthday is displayed 1 day earlier. When I check in my Outlook contacts in Outlook on my computer, the day is correct though.

    This is very confusing. I really hope that the wrong dates won't be synced back to my Outlook contacts!

    I can confirm that the same issue exists on iPhone, and also with imported LinkedIn contacts. When the contacts are sync'ed to my Mac, also the birthdays appear a day earlier. I suspect it has to do with time zone offset, probably being calculated to GMT or so and therefor on the day before at e.g. 11PM. It's annoying since now I don't know which date is the correct one. Those I put in manually show on the correct day.
