    Does BB10 still not add a contact's birthday to the calendar the way it did on BBOS?

    Thanks. I guess the answer is no. While I appreciate this workaround I have to wonder why this feature still doesn't exist in 10.3.1 when it did in BBOS.

    BlackBerry claim to be about enterprise customers. Well enterprise and corporate customers don't want to waste precious time manually entering contacts or downloading an app to do something that their previous OS did automatically.

    Because the BB10 contacts app is completely new and not a further developement of the BBOS app. The BB10 contacts app has indeed (after more than two years!) some issues and this is just one of them.

    Birthday is still available on my Z30. All you need to do is to click on edit and add and you will see it right there

    The problem was (as we can read in the original post) that the birthdays still don't appear in the calender.

    The issue is that it doesn't add it to the calendar the way it did in BBOS. And this is just like of many great features that was available in BBOS that BlackBerry has omitted to carry through to BB10.

    No wonder there are still so many Bold 9900 hold-outs.

    BlackBerry really need to get their act together with regard to the address book.

    I totally agree with you. While it may be totally and not just a redevelopment there's no reason to omit good features of the previous OS.

    To me this is like a total redesign of a car that removes options included in the previous generation that everyone liked. That's unheard of.
