    So, I just recently went from the Passport to the DTEK60, still getting used to Android.

    The question is: birthdays entries in the contacts don't automatically create an entry on the calendar? Or there's something I'm not doing right here?

    Thanks.

    Works fine on my DTEK60.

    Ok, so it's me, then.

    Do you, by any chance sync your contacts and calendar with an e-mail account?

    Cause I don't, all my contacts are in the device storage only, and now I'm thinking if the syncing isn't really from the apps itself, but from the account they're linked to..

    I sync with an email account and have no issues with birthdays to the calendar.

    I am pretty sure that would be the issue.

    Yes...my calendar and address book all sync to my DTEK60 from the same exchange activesync account.

    Just an update: I did a hard reset, this time synching my contacts and calendar with my Google account and still no communication between contacts and calendar apps..

    Everything else is great, though.

    Guess I'll just have to add manually

    But thanks guys for the feedback and help

    Maybe a dumb (or obvious) question, but did you select "Birthdays " in the Calendar Manager?

    Never mind. It was naive of me to think the Android calendar app works the same as BB.
