    Ok, so I'm lovin the new Facebook version 1.5. Lots of cool new features that i've been able to sit down and learn a lil more about the past few hours. Despite the complaints from others, I actually like the fact that it syncs birthdays to my calendar (because it only syncs the birthdays of the people who I also have as a phone number contact in my blackberry).

    By default it sets the birthday as an all day event (duhhhh ) with a 15 minute reminder. Im a little worried about this...will an alarm go off at saaaaay 7:45 AM if I have an all day event in my Storm calendar with a 15 minute reminder??? If so, I'm gonna have to make a few changes! lol

    Try going into calendars then options click on the facebook calendar and turn display reminders off. This is how I have it set but I still haven't tested if this works.

    haha. Yea, i just now found it and did it myself. If I had just set my default calendar reminder to "none" before the calendar synced I wouldn't have to worry about this. Oh well...this works.

    I am using the Appleberry 8 theme and the New Facebook App and messed up my Today Calendar. It shows a facebook contacts birthday at least 8 times and doesnt show any of my current appointments or calendar entries that come prior to the birthday. HELP? How can this be fixed??

    haha. How could you know without asking man??? Its cool. These are some steps I would take.

    1. Go into facebook 1.5, click your blackberry key, and go to options. In options make sure that the line saying "Blackberry Calendar Application" is checked.

    2. Go back to the main Facebook screen and click on the 3rd icon (Friends). Once this loads go thru one by one, and find people who you have as a phone contact as well as having them as a facebook friend. When you find one, click on that name. Scroll down to "Connect to Blackberry Contact" and click that. Then go through your phone contact list searching for that person.

    3. After you're done connecting all of your mutual contacts, go to your calendar, click your blackberry key, click options, then click on the box at the bottom that says facebook.

    4. Go down to the box that says "display reminders" and put "no." This will make sure you dont get an alarm at 7:45 am everyday one of your phone contacts has a bday.

    5. Now you can go check your calendar and they should be listed in there.

    Hope is helps...oh yea, never be afraid to ask man. Thats what these forums are for!

    You lose me there man. I stick with the Precision Zen theme, so things like this are a lil out of my league. I would recommend deleting facebook and starting over. I'm honestly not too sure...

    My storm doesn't give out any kind of reminder, pop-up or audible tone for any all-day event, like birthdays and anniversaries. All other alarms work, the ones with specific time assigned.
    The only time I get a reminder for all-day events is when I reboot the phone. Have tried everything...help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
