iPhone Birthday Calendar—Another Minor iPhone Annoyance

How do you delete a birthday from the birthday calendar on your iPhone?

Just another minor iPhone annoyance – but it seems unbelievable!

When I enter the contact information for my employees, I like to record their birthday. Birthdays have been a good excuse for all sorts of practical jokes around the Sage  Internet office.

Recently, I noticed  that birthdays of former employees still showed up  so I decided to delete some of them. In most cases, I did not want to remove them as a contact – just keep them from showing up on my iPhone calendar.

Seems like this is not a simple task …it may not even be possible.

Here is a good post on the subject http://www.thoughtasylum.com/blog/2010/7/31/tracking-down-the-iphone-birthday-calendar.html

    Why not just move the birthday info for people you don’t want to show in the birthday calendar into a different field such as the notes field. You can also use an date field with a label of “Other”…
