I am unable to understand or able to make use of calendars. Right now I have a Facebook account and a windows live account setup on my phone. Contact have been filtered to just show the live contact and hide Facebook ones.

In the calendars app I have enabled both the Facebook and live, but I never get a reminder or see a birthday from either Facebook or live account. Even if I scroll through the year, I can't see anything.

Do we get a reminder or in any way can see the birthdays for today and coming days. All i can see right now are the invites for coming and gone by events. In short i have no way of knowing whose birthday is when.


I figured it out. Actually there was no problem with settings on the phone. The issue was enabling the birthday calendars from the live sever.

To do so, I logged into the and enabled the calendars for birthday and holidays. Now things are working as expected.


If you go into the settings there are options to select the different calendars and some other options regarding them.
