    Sadly Apple will only sit up and pay attention once this hits The Register/Slashdot and Co. and people start ridiculing them in a more public forum.

    i suggest we contact The Register
    http://www.theregister.co.uk/about/company/contact/

    Editorial director John Lettice
    Editor Joe Fay
    Executive editor Andrew Orlowski

    and get them to investigate and look into this issue. hopefully with the power of media, we can get APPLES attention.

    Is this just for people in the UK, or anyone?

    Hi everyone,

    I experienced this with 3gs, but only with selected contacts. What I did to resolve this is to edit the contact having the birthday showing up on a different day other than the date entered. Remove the contact's birthday. Then click done. Then re-enter it. Hope this helps..

    peace

    Unfortunately removing the contacts birthday and re-entering it didn't work for me. I have tried that with a few of my contacts. Apple should sort this problem out asap
  • csutak40 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Removing it didn't work for me. In fact, I entered my own birthday as a test - brand new entry. I am now a 5 days older than I used to be
  • csutak40 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Here is hoping that I am right. I just installed the latest firmware and it seems to have fixed the problem. Well, sort of. I changed my son's birthday to the correct one (was 6 days earlier) and this time it hasn't changed back, like it has before. The only problem now is (unless I spoke too soon) that it didn't change back automatically to the correct one, which means that I have no way of knowing if all the birthdays for all my friends that I have carefully documented for years, may now all be wrong. I have no record anywhere else.
  • Mista2 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have noticed for me that the birthdays are showing up in the birthday calendar in iCal, and Calendar on the phone on the right days, but just displaying wrong in the Contacts app on the phone.
    If I add a birthday to on the right day to a contact, it saves it, synchs to GMail (and GMail synchs to my Mac Address Book) with the right day, but displays 1 day late in Contacts in the phone.

    I Think the birthday calendar is calculated and displayed on iCal and Calendar individually, as changes to the Contacts app show up straight away in the iPhone Calendar, so it is not just synched across from iCal like other static calendars I have subscribed.
  • Mista2 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Additional:
    If I create the birthdate in GMail contacts - it is the correct date and synchs to Address Book on my Mac correctly, but shows 2 days ahead in Contacts on iPhone
    If I create the date in Contacts in iPhone, it displays the date one day ahead of what I entered, and synchs the date 1 day behind in GMail Contacts and iCal on OS X.

    From now own I will simply only add the birthdays in GMail, and remember they are two dates out in contacts, but display correctly in teh calendars.
  • csutak40 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Is this after the latest update? With me, iPhone syncs with GMail, so when the birthdays started playing up in iPhone, they got changed in Gmail as well. And I'm not alone in this, there is a big thread going on Gmail as well, people think it is a Gmail problem
  • johcar Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    It cannot be a Gmail problem, since it affects people who are NOT syncing with Gmail (for instance I am syncing with Outlook 2007).

    It is more likely related to the new Birthday calendar not having Daylight Savings Time functionality built in.

    I am getting so ****** off with Apple's lack of response to this thread and the support ticket I raised that I am going to dump my iPhone and go over to the dark side: Nexus One
  • Pritesh Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    johcar, at least u have a option of nexus one. unfortunately, in fiji, its nt available. i hope google will make it available on a global scale.

    as for iphone, yes, this birthday bug is bugging the **** out of me. now, i just set birthdays in the calender and leaving it out of contacts totally.
  • AndrewDF Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    I have had this problem for years, I am also in New Zealand, started with mobile me, I have different dates on my iPhone and different again on my iPad, after reading these posts i have changed time zone to Australia, problem solved although day light savings will be a problem... hopefully they fix this soon.

    In Address Book on my iMac (an i7 model running OS X 10.6.4) I've got a birthday of 31 August 1996 loaded for my nephew. In iCal on the iMac the correct date shows up in the birthday calendar.

    On my iPhone 4, the birthday shows up in the calendar on the correct date, ie: 31 August 1996. However, when I go into Contacts on the iPhone it shows a birthday of 2 September 1996.

    Even more bizarre, on my iPad, Contacts shows a birthday of 1 September 1996 while the calendar shows it correctly as 31 August 1996.

    I've tried resynching but it makes no difference.

    On the iPad, I can manually change the birthday in Contacts to the correct one but as soon as I do that, the date showing in the Calendar changes to 30 August.

    On the iPhone, if I try to manually change the birthday date in Contacts the edit screen always shows 1 day behind what the edit scroll wheel shows.

    I can sometimes replicate the problem by entering dummy contacts but other times it seems to work correctly.
