Contacts & Calendar
Regarding the stock calendar and address book ... I have birthdays entered in for a lot of my contacts, but they're not showing up in the stock calendar. You'd think if you entered in a birthday for one of your contacts, it would sync up with the calendar ...no?
Do I have to manually enter in birthdays to the calendar?

Re: Contacts & Calendar
Not an uncommon problem.
I go through this once a year with birthdays and holidays.
Google calendar only synchs 12 months of birthdays. And it is a one time synch. As far as I know, it will not automatically update if you add new contact birthdays.
Clearing cache and data for the calendar and re-synching should have worked.
I normally go into Calendar and unselect contact birthdays and holidays for synching. Then synch Calendar. Contact birthdays and holidays disappear. Then I go back in and reselect birthdays and holidays for synching and then re-synch calendar.
Sometimes, they don't show right away. It may take ten minutes and another re-synch.
But then I get 12 months worth. Older birthdays and holidays disappear.

Re: Contacts & Calendar
Ok, I figured it out. As long as you have birthdays entered into your Contacts in GMail, Calendar will pick those up. Then, on your device, you go into Calendar .. upper right corner to open the menu ... "Calendars to display" ... and then select your Google account ... it will say "Calendars to sync" ... if you expand the view under your Google account, you'll see your GMail address, "Contacts' birthdays and events", and "US Holidays". Just make sure those are check marked and you're good to go! Re-open your Calendar and it's all there.
