    Go to the Settings page, select the Calendars tab and click on "Browse Interesting calendars", then go to the More tab and subscribe to the calendar "Contacts' birthdays and events".

    to clarify, this needs to be done on your google calendar online, which will then sync with your phones calendar, though you might have to make sure on your phone that the calendar is set to display as well

    There's no way to do this on just the phone. I don't have all my contacts on google. Basically most of my birthday dates come from facebook. Blackberry did this better.

    Does this only work for events or for birthdays also? I did exactly as it said but no birthdays are showing up.

    I tried it as well and only have other events showing up on my google calendar, not birthdays. I tried to see if I clicked on birthdays then export if it would work, but the link was identical.
