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

whenever I go to my notification bar to check a Facebook or text message the entire screen is full of annoying birthday notifications. I have checked/unchecked everything but they constantly appear.

 

How can I keep the calendar from posting notifications??

Hey Flbiggator,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Open up the Facebook Application, press the menu key and select Options.  Remove the check mark for Facebook Calendar.  Press the menu key and save.

 

Then go into Calendar, press the menu key and select options. Highlight Facebook Calendar type in rset.

 

Make sure it says it will clear all calendar entries from Facebook.

Do you have any other calendar appointments on your BlackBerry instead of the Birthday appointments?

 

If not:

 

Open BlackBerry Desktop Software, with the BlackBerry connected

Go into Device>Clear Data

Choose Calendar All and press delete.

 

This will remove all calendar appointments off your BlackBerry.

Hi ViciousFerret,

 

I've been having the same problems with my facebook calendar, and would appreciate your advise.

The thing is that I do not want any association between my facebook and my blackberry calendar at all. but it cannot seem to work.

 

Here is the revelant information:

Mobile phone- Blackberry Torch 9800

Version: v6.0.0.284, Platform6.4.0.120

Facebook version: 1.9.0.20

 

and here is my re-occuring problem:

1) I basically do not want any links, notificaitons, birthdays events or any association between my facebook and my calendar at all

2) Since i have gotten my blackberry and signed into facebook, it has updated my calendar with all the birthday events

3) I have already gone into the facebook > options, and unchecked the box that agrees to connect your blackberry account with "blackberry calendar application"

4) I then read on the forums somewhere to delete the 'facebook cical' from my options > service books

5) After doing so, I noticed that the facebook birthdays went into the 'default' calendar

6) I then manually deleted ALL of the facebook birthday entries in my calendar

 

By then I already thought I had the whole issue settled. BUT...

 

a few days later, facebook sent in another service book and it automatically updated my whole calendar AGAIN!!!! No matter what I do, it does not seem to work.

 

I have my own personal calendar events which I want to keep, and it is associated with my own personal email account on my calendar application. I hope to have this issue resolved.

 

 

PLEASE ADVISE!! Thanks in advance!

Hey Gidd,

 

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Here is the steps you'll have to complete to stop the Facebook calendar entries.

 

- Remove all the Facebook calendar entries or erase the whole calendar (your choice)

- Uninstall Facebook for BlackBerry from Options>Application Management.  Highlight the application and press the menu key and delete.

- Restart the BlackBerry

- Go into Options>Advanced Options>Device>Advanced System Settings>Default services and make sure your calendar is set to your  email address.  

- Go back into Options>Advanced Options>Device>Advanced System Settings>Service Book and make sure you remove any Facebook service books.

- Re-download Facebook for Blackberry by going to www.blackberry.com/facebook and when going through the setup, make sure you remove the checkmark for calendar.

 

You should be all set to go after following these instructions.  Let me know if you have any other questions.
