Duplicate Calendar Appointments

Greetings,

 

When I added anniversay and birth dates to my contacts, entries were automatically added to the calendar.

 

Yesterday I upgraded Blackberry Applications 6.0 from bundle 864 to 1659. Now there are duplicate entries for all of the birthdays and anniversaries in the calendar. Also, each appointment is appearing as starting at 1:35 am, and ending at 1:35 the next day—instead of being All Day appoinments. How can I fix this?

 

Thanks,

Shane.

Re: Duplicate Calendar Appointments

After 1½ years of fiddling with this, I have figured out by myself why events (birthdays and anniversaries) appear twice in the Calendar's Agenda view. It turns out that if the full day event has a reminder, the length of the reminder is added to the event. For example, a birthday is a 24-hour event. However, if you have a 15 minute reminder, then the event is now 24 hours and 15 minutes—so appears over two days in the Calendar's Agenda view. Removing the reminder fixes the problem.
