Exclamation How to disable sync between Facebook and BB Calendar

Please Login to Remove!

Hope I'm in the right room to ask this question. If not, mods may move the post elsewhere.

As you may realize, Facebook syncs ur friends data (such as DOB) to ur BlackBerry Calendar automatically. I don't like that because I like to use my calendar for other things; I especially don't like the fact that it does that automatically. But I'm having trouble disabling the synchronization between FB and my BB Calendar.

I went to the calendar option and opened the Facebook properties (Calendar -> Menu -> Options -> Facebook), and I chose "No" for "Wireless Synchronization". Doesn't work. I mean, I was able to change the setting to "No", but the sync process is still happening: If I deleted the FB data, it would reappear at a later time.

Any suggestion?

Open FB and go into options there.

Did it work for you??? My google sync pulls all the calendar entries into my BB, then changes the calendar to Facebook. I don't have my FB calendar syncing with my BB, according to my FB settings.

My google sync doesn't work right because FB calendar has taken over my phone.

Yes and no. I mean, I disabled the synchronization between my BB calendar and FB calendar, both on the calendar options and FB apps options. But some calendar events on FB still manage to slip through from time to time. So, I guess, I still don't know how to completely turn off the synching.
