Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

I did manage to stop them following the instructions I was given above but then it kept sending me update notifications which I could not get rid of.  Wouldn't just update without registering with something which I didn't want to do, so in the end I wiped Facebook off completely!  The same then happened with Twitter which I would never ever use so that went the same way!  Since then I haven't been hassled by anything - fingers crossed it remains that way.

:smileyvery-happy: 

Thank you all!!!  I finally got it to stop by following the instructions given- I just started at the first post and kept going until it worked.  I had previously deleted Facebook but didn't get all the extras that were on there. Although I like some of the features,  I am afraid to download Facebook again as I don't want to deal with the problems again.  Now I'm just hoping I didn't delete anything else important!  So far so good though!  Thank you, thank you!!

Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

i've been able to get rid of the notifications by opening the calendar application, p[ressing the blackberry key and selecting options. then type "wipe" nothing will be displayed on screen but after the "e" a screen will pop up asking u to confirm deleting the calendar data. this gets rid of all notifications for my facebook and after stopping it syncing, i've had no problem with fb since, but with gmail, i like to add the birthdays to my contact list, and even though i've unchecked the box for syncing the calendar, bdays still show up when i add a new contact. the perfect solution would be 1 where i could disable bday notifications as i use gmail calendar a lot on both my pc and phone, or if i could just delete the notification. does anyone know if there are plans to enable us to have more options in the notification screen

Re: Calendar - how do I stop the annoying birthday notifications??

This fix half worked for me - I have not registered with Faceberk or Twit. My notifications were coming from my Contacts.

After this fix it kept my contacts birthdays (although they did not display) - but all my calendar entries were wiped.

When I put them back they come up on the notification screen.

Still trying to find a way not to let them show.

 

Bottom line - using 10gazw's fix - I don't have my contact's birthdays appearing, but my calendar ones still do.
