    Hi,

    I am having trouble getting facebook birthdays alerts on my phone. I have enabled 'facebook events' in the calender settings. However, only events are displayed as alerts and not birthdays. Also, do not have a separate option to select syncing of birthdays. Please help.

    Thanks!

    Two ways of doing it:

    1) Go to Settings > Facebook, sync contacts ON. This will put your Facebook contacts' birthdays in your calendar.

    2) Go to the Facebook webpage on your computer, go to Events, click the little cog wheel to the right at the top (not the one in the blue border at the very top, but the one next to the icon that says Today) and export the birthday calendar as a subscribed calendar.
