    Handling Birthdays?

    Advertisement



    I just purchased a new Blackberry 8703e from Verizon and overall have been very pleased with it. That is, until today, when I realized that the contacts do not carry a date field and have no way of syncing a user defined data field with a birthday field in Outlook.

    This is disappointing - one of the best things about having my Palm was that I never missed another birthday. Anyone know of a work-around here? I want something that will keep a birthday associated with a contact and put it in my calendar. Thanks for the help!

    Well, you can add a Birthday field to your address book entries. Just go to any contact in your address book, hit menu, and go to edit. Scroll down to the bottom and you will see User1, User2, etc. go to one of those fields, hit menu again, and click on Change Field Name. You can now name it Birthday. (this is coming from a BB Pearl, but instructions should be similiar) ... not too sure about syncing but that'll give you a field. You'll only have to edit one contact, the rest will be updated too.

    It worked just as you described on my 8800. Hopefully the date will pop up too when it's time. Thanks!
