    So with the new Z10, I knew there would be changes. The only one I don't like is that the birthdays in my Contacts list are not automatically in my calendar. I don't want to manually enter them all! Is there a way I just don't know about? Also, every time I edit a contact, it's changing the birthdays to today's date. WHY!!! Can anyone help me?

    How are you guys synching the data? Via outlook? restoring from DM? Does DM still work with BB10?

    I've had the same problems, but with the newest DM with a 9900 hooked up to the computer. Did a backup but DM won't restore contacts properly, or will double-up the calendar entries...

    Seems BlackBerry took a page out of that and incorporated the problem with Z10 .

    I've pretty much moved on. I had the same entries in my Google calendar and I did the ActiveSync thing to get my Vancouver Canucks calendar on there too, as per another post on Crackberry about adding multiple Google calendars. It's actually better this way I think because my previous contacts calendar entries were inconsistent. With every new phone there will be some changes. This one was not world ending, and I think the syncs now are way better. Guess BlackBerry knew what they were doing. Plus there are a lot of people who hated the contacts syncing.

    Ah, I'm glad someone started this post. As I too was surprised my birthday event aren't in being populated in my calendar. This kinda sucks, I kinda depended on this feature to help me remind me of these things...you know those last minute gifts!! haha

    Now I'm contemplating maybe I'll just have to put them in to Google calendar instead and bring them down that way. I hope Blackberry 10 will fix this. I really enjoyed that feature.

    Do you mean a KB article here or on BlackBerry's website?

    Have you posted in BlackBerry's own forum about this? I will be because I think there should be an option in the calendar app to show/hide contact dates like anniversaries and birthdays.

    I'm so annoyed... I switched from 9700 and synced all my data with the Zed. I first had to change all birthdays manually in my contacts because the format didn't correspond with the new Zed format.
    Now that I'm through with that I noticed another issue. All of my birthdays start a day earlier... it's driving me crazy. as a test I removed the series for one of my contacts and also removed her birthday in her contact info. When I tried to re-add it it didn't appear in my calendar. Why is that? I hate having a messy calendar.

    I hope I'm making any sense...

    Are you sure that it is not the reminder that is for one day early?
