Default Contact's birthdays showing up on calendar

Please Login to Remove!

I have a bunch of contacts already on my phone.

I want their birthdays to show up on my calendar in Pocket Day automatically.

What is the best way to do this if I have some contact's birthdays already added to their name and some not?

Currently there are no birthdays showing on the calendar.

Thanks!

Does PD show all day events? I assume it does. Once you set the date, you could set the option for the event to be "recurring" annually.

Yes it does. So would I have to manually create an entry for each contact AND add their birthday to their name in the contact list?

I would like it to automatically create the recurring entry on the calendar when I add the birthday to the contact if possible.

Unfortunately I don't think a feature like that is incorportated, I got a blackberry and that's the one feature I missed from my nokia, however it is a great improvement in everyway. I recommend on keeping an eye out on programs and updates for our phones in the near future, with the blackberry pearl 2 they are starting to make it more balanced from just pure business users, and in time that might be a feature they add.
