How turn off facebook birthdays that show up under calendar?

Ever since I sign in to facebook on the blackberry it hads some ppl birthdays under the calendar, I don't care for it. I don't want the calendar to be on my home page cuz I dont use it.

 

 

Also can you set two different alarms, my old phone did. I need one more for my fiance.

 

Thank you.

Re: How turn off facebook birthdays that show up under calendar?

1. Open your Facebook for BlackBerry application > Menu key > Options > and scroll down to "integrate with BlackBerry calendar" and UNcheck, or disable that.

 

2. Yes. You can set many alarms.

  • Set your main alarm via the Clock application.
  • Set additional alarms by opening your Calendar applicaiton > press the Menu key > Set New Alarm.

Yes, ...Do a simple reboot on the BlackBerry in this manner:

With the BlackBerry device POWERED ON, remove the battery for a minute, and then reinsert the battery to reboot. A reboot in this manner is prescirbed for most gltiches and operating system errors, and you will lose no data on the device doing this.

 

 

Now, undestand, that Facebook contact's whose birthday or other events might have already synced to your BlackBerry will not be removed from your Calendar, but this ^^ will keep new events from syncing to your calendar.

 

If you want to remove those events existing events:

  1. Connect the BlackBerry smartphone to the computer.
  2. Open the BlackBerry Desktop Software.
  3. Click the Device menu and select Delete data.
  4. Select the appropriate option to perform:
    • All data - clears all data on the BlackBerry smartphone
    • Selected data - clears only data from selected databases
    • Back up data before deleting
    • Select only your Calendar that is labeled Calendar - Facebook
