Mary, I don't know how much help this is, but I don't think the iPhone calendar does a good job (or any job) at syncing multiple calendars. While I don't have experience with a birthday calendar (but I really wish I did), I have tried to sync my personal and family calendar (both iCal) and my work calendar (Outlook) they all merge into one calendar on the iPhone and in iCal events are placed in the right calendar. I have read others have this problem, and I really hope they improve the calendar function. I would think this will be important as iPhone become more incorporated with businesses.
Hope this helps, if there is other thoughts, I would like to know, too.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
Thanks for replying Hitlets. For some reason although I had ticked all calendars to be synced only one was but when I ticked the individual ones it worked okay but like yours they all merged into one calendar. Hopefully Apple will address this at some pointimac G4 1.25GHz, Mac OS X (10.5.1)
One thing you can try is to reset sync history.
1. Now open applications -> isync and reset sync history found in the isync preferences.
2. After sync history is reset you can quit isync.
3. Open iTunes sync with iPhone, telling iTunes to replace all ical data on my iPhone . This is found in the advanced section ant the bottom of the info tab page.
Hope this helps.
I am having the same issue. Our Birthday calendars are shown under subscription because it is pulling the data from the address book. When you give your contacts birthdays via the birthday field you can have iCal get birthdays from there instead of having to insert them again. It seems that anything displayed via a subscription is not being pushed. I tried publishing the Birthday Calendar to Mobile Me, which now shows the calendar, but still nothing on the iPhone.iPhone 3g, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
is it so that you are using the MobileMe service?
Because I have the same problem, where I can see in MobileME (at the web) the Birthday Calendar, which is somehow a look-up in the Addressbook.
But I do not see this Birthday Calendar in my iPhone 3G. I do though see it in my iCal on my MacBook.
If I in the iPhone 3G turn off Sync with MobileMe when it comes to Calendars and that the Sync occurs between my MacBook and iPhone 3G, then they ALL appear.
I do not know if this is a BUG or is something that Apple iPhone 3G Team just forgot to add.

I have this exact same problem with my Original iPhone (OS v2.0.2)and my Windows Vista Laptop running Outlook / Office 2007. I also have a Mac that does not show this Calendar, either. Everything else is syncing along quite nicely, though. I have read that iPhones will not sync a Subscription based calendar? Is this correct? The Birthdays Calendar is a Subscription Based Calendar. Why would it be listed in my MobileMe Calendar, but then not on my iPhone, let alone Outlook or iCal???G5 / HPd6150 / 2G iPhone, Mac OS X (10.5.4)
