    Hi I have a new iPad 2 and my granddaughter is keen to see her birthday in the calendar, however I can't see how to put it in. Read somewhere just open calendar app and click on birthdays but this doesn't seem to do anything. Can anyone help please.?

    Just put it in the calendar as a new appointment but put "? birthday" as the appointment, make it an all day appointment and repeat yearly. Is that what you want to do?

    Thanks for response, I figured it you need to set up your contacts birthdate in "contacts" then enable birthdays in calendar. It is quite neat if you put the actual birthdate in contacts it tells you which birthday it is on the date. Hopefully I'll never forget a birthday again!
    Thanks again for response.

    Well that's the normal way to do it but for people who are not in your contacts ie., friends kids/husbands/wives, this is a good way to put them in.

    Nearly works, but with my iPad2 it doesn't tell me which birthday it is! Nokia can do it, so why not Apple?

    If you set them up as contacts and put their birth dates in then it tells you which birthday it is!
