    So, i took the time to go through all of my old contacts and entered them in one at a time on my new Note 8 using the Samsung Contacts app. My contacts do show up on the new gmail account i had setup prior to getting the phone. I have the contacts saved to gmail not device.

    When i go into the Samsung Calendar app the only birthday that appears is my own.
    None of my contacts birthdays or anniversaries are there.

    I havent logged in to FB yet to sync with those contacts to add them yet, ive been trying to do this one thing at a time.

    When i go in to the calendar app on the Note 8 all the toggles are green.
    My Phone: My Calendars, Contacts Birthdays, My Tasks
    Google: my email account here
    Samsung: samsung Calendar, Samsung Tasks,
    + Add account

    What am i doing wrong?

    I am still working on setting up the phone, sometimes i think about just doing a factory reset / restore and starting over.
    I had ads from hell after my lock screen till i deleted most of the apps.
    The other night it came on by itself blaring music waking me up at 3:00am - not cool.
    Sometimes the ads would just pop up - not in internet mode, just using the phone, inputting contacts, etc.
    anyway - thats a different issue.

    Take care that the phone is clean.
    No junkware, adware, malware.

    Then attack the other issue. Hope something isn't snooping or a backdoor trojan horse.

    I would run malwarebytes - always.
    I think its ESET that can do in-depth file scans.

    But yes do factory reset, total wipe, and don't restore from backups.

    I have Malwarebytes and Kaspersky. Ill do a wipe tonight. Once i got rid of the extra apps it stopped.

    Any ideas on the birthdays and such on how to get them to my calendar?

    I have to ask this, because it sounds this way from your OP. Did you create a new Google account because you got a new phone?

    Yes, i created a new gmail account before i got the phone. I wanted to start fresh, too much junk on my hotmail and old gmail accounts.
