    Some of my contacts have birthdays attached to them but they aren't showing up on my calendar. I have the setting in the calendar turned on. I also checked the contact is saved to the Gmail account. Nothing seems to be working. Please help! I have a Samsung note 5.

    If you open the phone's calendar, tap the menu button and select MANAGE CALENDARS, do you see the Contact's birthdays enabled? Or if these are in your contact list in your Google Account, the 'Contacts' option under your Google account there?

    Yes, birthdays are enabled when I go to manage calendars.

    If you open your Google Calendar on the web (calendar.google.com), do they show up there? There might be a BIRTHDAYS tag on the left side you'd have to check.

    Yes, they do show up on the calendar on the web.

    If you have all your events saved to your Google account, you can try clearing the Calendar Storage data (NOTE that this would wipe out any locally-saved events not backed up to a cloud account!), which would force the accounts to re-sync. Other than checking that birthdays and contacts are active in the appropriate sections, I don't know why they're not showing up for you.

    You can also try to download Google's Calendar app and see if that shows them on your phone, too...
