The texts aren't from your calendar. They use more lines to show whether you are busy that day or not. These are the texts used in the month view: Dignis milt Worthy of milt.

Edit: Microsoft has re-branded the Calendar UI. I have modified instructions below (without updating the screenshots). The good news is yes, you can disable notification for birthday reminders that are coming from Facebook. You cannot do this from within the calendar app but you can do it by using your Windows Live Calendar. The steps: Log on to calendar....

After spending quite some time on it, I have found the solution to your question. It involves dealing with external calendars (Outlook, Facebook) on their respective websites. First of all, on where the birthdays are stored: when you connect to Facebook on your phone, Outlook automatically imports all the birthdays into its calendar. You can view and edit ...

Those texts are there to show to you in witch days you have appointments but they are not made to you really read them. Since there isn't much space in those blocks they used those texts instead of a bar or dots to mark the day. Edit I had asked a long time ago the official Twitter support account but can't find it now. So I asked again and they pointed ...

Outlook on Windows 10 mobile is a lot similar to the new Outlook app on other platforms. As you can see in the suggestion section on the Outlook for Android, this feature does'nt exists on Android. It is probably the same thing on Windows 10 mobile for the moment. Alternatively you could use Wunderlist (https://www.wunderlist.com/) which is cross-platform, ...

If you have upgraded to the new outlook.com layout; Go to your online outlook calendar (live.com/hotmail.com/outlook.com) via select Calendar > Birthday Calendar (do not uncheck it click on the title) > Under "Reminders" remove anything you do not want. I removed them all. This way you could still get email reminders if you want them and just not the ...

The first day of the week setting isn't in Windows Phone 8 anymore (Why, I don't know...). It's on the users' feature suggestions in the WP website, here. It seems that on WP8 the first day is automatically set, depending on the Country/Region set in Language and Region. To know which is the first day of the week on your phone, open the Calendar and choose ...

A feature called "Quiet Hours" has been introduced into the core operating system with the 8.1 update. You can trigger quiet hours manually, or automatically with a preset time (e.g. via a calendar event). A cool feature related to quiet hours is the concept of an "Inner Circle". This is a group of contacts, e.g. your significant other, who may contact you ...

I'm pretty sure that this is not currently possible with the built-in calendar application. I am unaffiliated with this app, but Calendar[+] appears to have a similar function as well as Chronos Calendar. I just installed this app on my phone, and it does exactly what you described. Here's a screenshot of how Calendar[+] looks: Here's a screenshot of how ...

I am a developer that creates apps for Windows Phone. I also create an app "Week View" that's provides a weekly view of appointments as the name suggests. Please let me explain, how calendar apps for Windows Phone work. Do "all" calendar apps on a phone share a common underlying calendar datastore provided by the phone? No. The "calendar store" is in ...

Just go in your calendar -> settings. There you can select which calendars should be synced. Just uncheck everything you don't want to see.

All of your contacts and calendar reminders seem to be available online, right? Then I would agree with the MS Tech support to go ahead and do a hard reset. This usually does solve a lot of issues related to the W10 update.

The feature you describe would be covered by "Google Sync" (their name for Exchange ActiveSync), which remains available to set up new Windows Phones with, until 31 July 2013 - it will also be available to set up new devices with after that date if you are a Google Apps for Business, Education, and Government customer.

I am on WP 7, but this should be only incidental. If it is an option, you could synchronise your contacts to your LIVE account and create an outlook.com-Account (you don't have to use it for e-mail). There you should get an birthday-calendar for your contacts automatically. It should also sync with your contacts, whenever you edit or add a new contact. You ...

I found the solution! Login to hotmail.com > Go to the Calender > Click the textlink Birthday... > There you can erase the entire calender. If you want a empty birthdaycalender again, just create it again..

The entries you see are markers for calendar entries, the more events on a day the more markers you will see in that cell. The text in the cell is not derived from the calendar entry, and there's no way to enlarge it. The actual text seems to be picked at random from a small set of strings that it uses to draw the screen, e.g. 'Lorum ipsum' type text. If ...

I don't think there's any way to set up one-way read-only sync directly in Windows Phone. However, you should be able to achieve what you want by having everyone in your group subscribe to the Google calendar in Outlook.com. Follow these steps: In Google Calendar, click on the arrow next to your calendar and select "Calendar settings". Next to "Private ...

I was not able to find it either. I did find a relatively cheap alternative. It is an app called 2day. It links with outlook.com and office365 (not sure the difference). I chose outlook.com and so far so good. It has a 30 day free trial. The paid version is like $3 or $4 dollars.

This is a bug with the calendar app on Windows 10 Mobile. Events created 6 months in advance will not show up. This problem isn't restricted to certain phones or Google calendars. There is an issue submitted in the Windows Feedback app for this problem, which you can vote on.

There is currently no way to do this.

GContacts does CARDDAV. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/store/app/gcontacts/76e2d69f-e469-4084-b565-d4a6343aee31 . Encourage the dev to do calendar too.
