Re: Birthday Reminders

[ Edited ]

Thanks. Are those contacts imported from somewhere?

p.s. Also I have reports that there is an another issue - not all birthdays are shown. Now I'm looking for some kind of  regularity for this Smiley Happy

Re: Birthday Reminders

I am synced from PC, laptop and Z10 with MS Exchange server so yes they are all downloaded from outlook.

Re: Birthday Reminders

Just to be sure: in the Z10's adress book those contacts are shown with correct birth date?

Re: Birthday Reminders

I suppose that it can be caused by timezone settings (different seetings on a Device and remote server).

Re: Birthday Reminders

It seems, that automatic birthdays reminder will not be even in 10.2 OS.

So, I continue improving my MeeBirthdays app.

And it even got B4BB approval.

Any feature-requests are welcome Smiley Happy

Re: Birthday Reminders

I had the same issue (also the same b'day!!) 

 

I have a Mac so the details might be a little different, but this is how I solved it. I made certain all dates were correct in my address book (I also added a note containing the correct b'day as 'insurance'). Then in calendar I made certain all birthdays are "All Day" events rather than starting at 12:00AM. 

 

Also I suggest you use the BB reminder settings for that day/previous day etc.

 

This can all be done in the BB of course, but is much slower. Fortunately you only have to do it the once. Also make certain you resolve any conflicts that arise in during your sync by defaulting to the computer dates.

 

Hope it helps.

 

BTW — make certain you don't have 'daylight savings' issues with your computer time zone vs the BB.

Re: Birthday Reminders

My Birthdays in my BBQ1p are the correct date however they do notify me a day earlier than the contacts actual birthdate. When the reminder comes up it says John Smiths Birthday and then it would say August 23, 2013 but notify me on August 22, 2013....is there an automatic way to change all birthday notifications to the actual date? I am assuming it has something to do with the facebook app that synced all the birthdays but I don't know how to change it... Anyone have an idea?
