    Hi, I have the ipad2 same as my husband, but I've just realised that in his calendar all his friends birthdays on Facebook are in there and he has a drop down list which he can tick if he wants them on there or not. I've looked in his settings to compare and the only thing I can think of is his e mail addresses are gmail accounts whereas mine are aol accounts. His account setting he has notes, calendar and mail whereas I have the option of only mail and notes. Hope I've explained myself well so someone can tell me why, oh and also his iPad has 3G would that make a difference not that he uses the 3G. Thanks

    iOS six added Facebook integration. Go to Settings >Facebook, and you will see ON/OFF switches for syncing with your Facebook contacts and calendar.

    Are you running iOS 6?

    Are you logged into your FaceBook account under Settings > FaceBook?

    Only then will you see the options to turn on/off Contact and Calendar syncing.

    Nope, didn't see it. It takes a few minutes to make a Stitch screen shot. I was probably still editing it when you posted.

    Glad to see you got it fixed.

    No problem. Glad to help.

    Explaining why I missed your post, not complaining. I tend to decide a post needs research or a screen shot in the middle of composing, so I often take several minutes from start to end, even if it's only a dozen words.

    And sometimes I only type those dozen words. ;)
