Re: Contact birthday

Pserg,

Sync your phone contacts to your gmail account (contacts).  Then login to gmail, contacts, you can add birthdays there.  Then open Google Calendar it has ability to add birthdays from Google contacts as an additional calendar item.

Then there is an app on the Play Store called 'Birthdays' (can't give you exact app name as my phone is at Sony to flash back to Gingerbread due to ICS bugs).

Anyway that app will monitor your google calendar birthdays and give you reminder pop ups when they are due on your phone.

Good luck,

Re: Contact birthday

Unfortunately there is no section within the Contacts that will allow this.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

Re: Contact birthday

Developers have no relatives and friends and don't congratulate them on birthdays and anniversaries? Something will be made? Very strange, but program of other firms think that this field important and they add it in contacts.

Re: Contact birthday

Thanks, exactly so I also have arrived. There was simply a question to Sony developers. Why they have made exactly so? Still I recommend to them to look at the HTC and Samsung devices which program part is more focused on inquiries of users

I not absolutely accept answers of developers that such we do not have. It would be desirable to hear that is planned to make, that it was
