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

Hi ViciousFerret,

 

I was about to login here to tell you that I was really happy with the solution and it worked but...

 

I did as you said on the 28th of November, and unfortunately Facebook sent in the service books to my phone again today (3rd December).

 

Seems like your solution has not worked Smiley Sad

 

Any other suggestions?

 

 

 

Thanks in advance!

Hey gidd,

 

Sorry for the delay in replying.

 

Now the service book is back on the BlackBerry, did the birthday appointments re-appear?  Also did the default calendar change?

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

Hi ViciousFerret,

 

If i go to calendar > options, I can see 3 calendars:

-facebook

-own email 1

-own email 2

 

The facebook calendar has all the birthday appointments in them and my calendar is full of birthday appointments again.

 

The default caldendar is still the same - my own email 1.

 

And the service book has been sent - Facebook [CICAL]

 

 

Thanks!

[ Edited ]

I have the same problem,

I've been searching through different websites for almost an hour and cannot find a solution.

 

I've uninstalled facebook, unchecked facebook calenders, deleted facebook (cical?) and everything I could possibly do, but nothing seems to work.

 

Can someone please help me ASAP, it's really frustrating trying to figure it out by myself.

Please use terms I can understand & explain it step by step, I'm only a kid

Hey reobee,

 

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

What version of Facebook for BlackBerry are you using?  Also what BlackBerry are you using?

 

After you clear the calendar database, does the facebook calendar start re-populating?

Hi ViciousFerret,

 

Happy new year to you, just wondering if there are any updates since my last post?

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

Finally I've found the answer!!!

 

In the facebook settings you need to disable the "Blackberry Contacts Application" setting not the "Blackberry Calendar application" setting.

 

Any time you connect a new friend to someone in your contacts, or update their info manually it will still add their birthday again, but at least then you only have one birthday to delete.

 

What we really need is an update for the facebook application that changes it so that all calendar updates are controlled by the calendar setting.

Is this for the Torch because I did as you advised and I still have to calendar birthday updates.  Can you walk me through, step by step?

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

Hi kinetic,

Since u tried that, does facebook constantly send u the cical servicebook?

Anyway I agree with u on this. There seems to be no resolution that leaves the calendar alone while only updating the addressbook (which is a great function).

I just hate being updated every other day telling me its XYZ's birthday.

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

To be honest I've both contacts and calander disabled on mine from within facebook but I haven't had a birthday appear in my calander since then but I never deleted the cical so I have to just presume its not being resent.

You can still update the addressbook manually using connect to and refresh contact but its a small price to pay to stop the damm birthdays.

I'm just really hoping facebook gets updated so that there's a birthday option that will keep everyone happy
