I have beens searching the forums for a while now and no positive answer to my question. I have all my birthdays and anniversarys entered into my contact list and some of them updated via Facebook. I am trying to find a way to get reminders without setting up a calender reminder for each one that is already in the phone.
Is this even possible?

Hi and welcome to the forums!
I tested it several ways, and I don't think you can get reminders without setting them manually.
There isn't an option when you set up the contact's birthday for a reminder to set one.

I have a 9550 and if I enter a Birthdate in a contact listing it automatically enters a reminder in the calendar. Granted I am running a hybrid OS and didn't check when I was running the straight .607. It is handy that it is automatic.

I am having the same issues along with the fact that i have family contacts and currently i haven't found an option on my Bold 9700 that solves the fact that there is more then one member in a family contact. Birthdays are link to the main name on the contact so if they have kids, unless i create a contact record for each one, i can only choose either one date, with the main contact person as the reminder.

Have a look at ThinkOfMe. Works well and uses what's in your address book. They probably going to extend it to other sources too, such as Facebook

The best option for automatic birthday reminders is to use zebrost phone book. This book can be used parellely with our native phone book and is available on app.world.i
I had recently installed this as it is free as well as easy to use. In that after installation all contacts from native phone book comes to zpb. It gives the provisions of storing multiple birthdays in single contact. In a single contact, I have stored the birthday of my friend, his husband, his kid, their anniversary and their office opening date and I automatically gets the reminder on the date on which any of the above event occurs..
Apart from that, if any persons is a zpb users and he himself has uploaded his updated bcard along with all events like birthday, anniversary etc on the zpb user and I am having his phone number in my phone book, then on running "UPDATE CONTACTS" in SeeYou Cards in zpb, I receive the updated bcard of those persons. And if that person has already enter birthday then I automatically get the reminder in my phone on his birthday and I wish to him based on that reminder.
Thus zpb gives me the automatic birthday reminders of those persons of whom I haven't even entered the birthdays or other events manually. Secondly it permits me to enter the multiple events in one contact with the reminder facility to each event in a particular contact.
Lastly even if I changes my phone model, I will transfer all my contacts from old phone to new one. In that case the birthdays and other things also gets transferred. So no need to type birthdays again manually in the new phone. Also no need to enter birthdays on annual basis. I am thankful to zpb.
