    I posted about this before, but to no avail, so I thought I'd try again. For some reason, I cannot edit, view, or remove birthdays from Address Book. I can view/edit them on my iPhone, but not in Address Book. I believe I can also enter them via Address Book, but once they are entered, I can't make any modifications. The dates are there somewhere, because they show up in my birthdays calendar in iCal.

    I attached two screenshots to illustrate my problem. When viewing the address card, the birthday field is blank. Clicking 'Edit' provides no help, either.

    I believe this might be for Outlook only. If I were you I'd call Apple about this.

    Huh? What do you mean? Outlook is Microsoft's Mail/Calendar client for Windows...:confused:

    Sorry, poor wording.

    I think only Outlook on Windows has a working slot for birthday's. I can't seem to get this working on my Mac and iPhone either.

    Birthday works fine on my Address Book. Why would Apple have a field for it and not allow you to enter it? Also birthdays is such a basic info that it would be strange to leave it off.

    I agree. I used to be able to add/edit birthdays. I'm not sure when exactly the problem started, but it's definitely annoying.
