Default Birthday reminders?

Please Login to Remove!

I'm interested in setting up birthday reminders on my 7250 (OS4.0). I'd prefer to have them attached to their respective contact rather than the dates themselves though.

Is this possible? So far it doesn't appear so...

If you sync with Outlook, you can add the birthday to the outlook contact and it will appear on your calendar. One issue I have found is to leave the year off. I cant remember what the cutoff year is, but if they are before a certian date - they will not sync with the bberry.

Another method is to schedule the birthday in the Blackberry Calendar and set the recurrence to yearly. This, too, will sync with your Outlook Calendar.
