    I now have 2 birthday calendars, and NONE of the birthdays show on the calendar app. What gives?!

    Want to add that I also have this problem. Currently looking at 22 Other Birthday calendar events. I've removed icloud calendar sync, I've deleted every birthday appointment in all calendars (nothing appears whne I have only these calendars showing), I've gone through all contacts and no one lists birthdays.

    Have always had some issue with birthdays in contacts.  I do not use it and simply put birthdays on my busycal.

    IMO it's just much eaiser to manage and there are no calendar issues.

  • Mpmav1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yep. Still having this same problem with no known fix. So frusterating.

    I am now at 78 other birthday calenders.  A fix would really be appriciated

    There'sa fix. It is easy but a pain - restore to factory settings and then rebuild. Do not restore from a backup as you'll just restore the corruption, but wipe it out and rebuild: add your apps, add your music, set up your email and calendars and everything will be fine. I wish there were an easier solutoon, and a searched for weeks, but this works and is well worth the couple of hours of pain

    There's a good chance iOS 6 will fix it, so you might want to just wait until then since rebuilding will cause you to lose app data.

    I just upgraded to IOS6 and my extra birthday calendar is gone. YEAH!!!!


    I only had one extra so I would be curious to hear from others that had more, but I suspect this has been fixed in IOS 6.

    Upgraded to ios 6 on an iphone 4s, I have two "other" "birthday" calendars. I turned off Facebook sync with both Calendar and Contacts. I turned OFF the toggle allowing Calendar and Contacts to use the Facebook App. I have zero Contacts and zero Calendar entries, but yet I have two birthday calendars. I should be able to click on the edit calendar button and delete them.

  • ed875 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yeah, I have the same problem. Upgraded to iOS 6 and still have "birthday" calendar that cannot be deleted. I ried syncing and not syncing. Still no ability to delete the additional calendar.


    So apparently the only solution is what David Schlesinger2 has - "restore to factory settings and then rebuild...everything".


    Apple "it's easy"
