    I have the same problem here and I don't sync my contacts with Google. The problem is with the iPhone. Even when I create a new contact and add the birthday manually, it is still not displayed correctly

    I havent looked at birthdays specifically, but I have found that using the wheel to adjust event start and end times has an issue after the 26th Sep 2010.
    I have found that the 25th Sep 2010 is repeated on the wheel twice. The problem goes away after 3rd Apr 2011 as 02 Apr 2011 is missing.

    However... It all gets repeated between 24 Sep 2011 and 30 Mar 2012 and between 29 Sep 2012 and 06 Apr 2013. After that I stopped looking.

    Changed the timezone to Fiji (same as NZ) and the problem moved to between 23 Oct 2010 and 27 Mar 2011.

    Australian time zone seemed OK but no good to me in NZ.

    Seems to be the same for iOS 4.0 and iOS 4.0.1

    Hmm, Apple will this be fixed?

    Was this with a Gmail account?

    If so, this has now been fixed by Google.
  • johcar Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    What!?! A Google problem is causing two 25 Septembers to appear in my iPhone Calendar? I don't think so. (That was a nice find, HF Auckland!!)

    What do you think Google has fixed? Can you supply a link to some details?

    I am not the OP, but was about to post the same thing. There is a thread happening at Google as well http://www.google.com/support/forum/p/Google+Mobile/thread?tid=6a2ce69e364d1112& hl=en&start=120
    I haven't tried it yet, not game to re-sync everything (I once managed to lose all my contacts at once from both Apple and Google, by following bad advice from the Three helpline) so I thought I'd wait for some more comments. BTW, I don't have the problem (that I can see) of dates doubling up, just birthdays losing days
  • mgreernz Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have a hunch this is not solely related to iCal and Contacts.

    I'm trying to use Appigo's ToDo app on both iPhone and iPad. It syncs wirelessly via Appigo Sync. If I create a ToDo on the iPhone or iPad say for Monday, it syncs to the iMac as Tuesday. The problem was around for most of last year, but seemed to be resolved in an app update. Now it's recurred and seems to be directly related to the NZST/NZDST cycles. I now even suspect the original problem was never resolved, but rather "came right" by default when NZDST kicked in September 09, only to recur when NZ reverted to NZST in 2010. Something, somewhere is out of sync in the way in which the Mac OS is interpreting NZ date and time settings. But I'm darned if I know where.

    And of course, as always, Apple Support has been as useful as tits on a bull.

    The problem is also not confined just to Appigo ToDo. Guidedways app, 2Do develops exactly the same problem (and yet uses a different sync process via 2Do Sync Helper). It seems therefore the problem lies not with the individual apps, but that something is systemically dysfunctional in the way the Mac OS deals with NZ dates and times.

    I suspect mgreernz may be onto something linking this issue to DST. Microsoft had major issues a few years ago in this area too. There are too many flavours of sync issues for this to be related to some Google issue as a previous poster mentioned. I recently upgraded to 4.01, so did a complete restore. The problem still exists.

    Come on Apple - get your act together !!!
  • daveb970 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Everyone seems to have the same or similar problem, but will Apple ever respond?

    At this stage I have just given up and deleted all birthday and anniversary dates... just too **** annoying.
  • KeithGP Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Has anyone even found a workaround?

    I have tried disabling Google calendars, manually setting up time zone, etc. Nothing works. What gives?
  • Mark Hodge1 Level 1 Level 1 (15 points)
    It's a bug in iOS4 - the exact same calendars work just fine synced to my iPad running iOS3.2.2.

    At least they got the year right, which is not a given considering they couldn't calculate basic stuff like signal strength
  • johcar Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    It most certainly is a bug in iOS4 - a friend is still running 3.1.3 and the issue is not evident in her iPhone 3GS.

    I logged a support ticket with Apple about a week ago, but have had absolutely no response.

    I am seriously considering a move to a Nexus One, if this is an example of how Apple treat their customers...
  • nz_skater Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    @csutak40: The Blue and Red dots represent two seperate Calendars; I imagine each dot represents either the Birthday calendar, a PC sync, a Google Calendar and/or possibly an Exchange calendar. You can check by opening Calendar and tapping Calendar in the top left corner.

    As for the main issue, I'm also affected. Thought it was caused by the Facebook Sync app I used to sync details. Guess not. Ridiculous that this problem exists, Apple should be ashamed.

    I don't think they've cottoned on to the fact that this is actually an issue that is very much in peoples faces, embarrassing, and likely to subject them to further ridicule.

    guys,

    i been reading this topic from post to post. I wonder if APPLE is even reading this or not.

    we all agree that its a APPLE issue and there seems to be no workaround to this issues unless and until APPLE gets it f**king act together and fix this bug.

    Someone even opened a ticket with APPLE but no response from them. Very professional of APPLE PS: APPLE, UR CUSTOMER CARE *****....

    Isnt there a way that we can complain to some consumer watch dog about this problem which APPLE is ignoring, to get their attention and to get this fixed.

    we all agree that birthday dates are very important (if u miss ur girlfriends/wife birthday, thats the end of u)..

    bottom line, there is a bug with iphone and APPLE needs to fix it. there is NO workaround to this issue and we are all frustrated at APPLE.

    regards
    PC
