    I am having a problem with the birthday calendar giving me wrong birthdates. I have the correct birthdates in the contacts for 3 people, but on the calendar they are all listed on Dec 13 as an all day event from Dec 13 2010 to Dec 12 2010. It is only affecting these 3 birthdays. I have tried deleting the contacts and then reinstalling after a sync but no luck. Does anyone have any ideas?

    Interesting. I just noticed I have the same problem. Funny thing is they are also correct in contacts and show up fine in Exchange and on my iPad but on my iphone I have two contacts that both show birthdays for December 13th.

    A bit more info on this:
    * any birthday in iCal that occurs prior to 12/13/1932 will be synced to the iPhone calendar BUT will be synced with a 12/13 date (i.e. go to 12/13 date for any year after 1931 like 12/13/2010 and you will see all of the too old birthdays)
    * this was reported to Apple in a bug report as far back as 2/26/2009 under iPhone 2.2.1 (keep waiting for it to be fixed in each release...)
    * you can test this by entering a birthday for a contact, syncing your phone and looking at the 12/13 date
