    The Birthday Calendar added on the iOS4 could be a nice feature. When i go on my calendars list, i have 3 calendars among which the new birthday calendar just added on iOS4...the only issue it that it is BLUE like one of my other calendar. How can i change the color? Thanks!

    Goggle Calendar

    You can change the calendar in google, and that changes it on the iPhone.

    Makes me insane. IP4 with one Exchange calendar synced wirelessly and one home calendar not synced at all. Colors for both changed twice today at random.

    I am not talking about google calendar but the built in Apple Birthday Calendar implemented since iOS4. You can toggle it off but that is not the question as well. I just want to changed its color. This calendar display birthdays based on birthday dates on your contacts...my apple birthday cal is Blue and i want to change the color.

    I beleive it is not possible which is pretty sad and stupid

    Anybody found a solution?
    I used to sync the Birthdaycalendar from iCal to the iPhone via iTunes and to deselect the one on the iphone.
    Now even that is not working anymore, so I have now a blue iPhone-birthdaycalendar.

    i think its to do with facebook's main colour being blue, its a bit annoying you change it (i hope it will be added in 4.1 - no reason why it shouldn't)

    Thanks but this would not work with changing the embeded iOS4 birthday cal. Simply because the color sequence you refer to only applies to calendars belonging to the same "group". What I mean is it will work with all your Gmail, or whatever CalDAV, etc...but this won't be part of the sequence of the Birthdat calendar as it is under the "Other" category...same thing with a "MobileMe" calendar as it is part of the MobileMe calendar section...

    I have tried and it does not work:
    1- No calendar at all except the "iOS4 birthday cal" which is blue
    2- Created several dummy cal with Gmail...first one got Blue, second on Red, etc...but my iOS4 cal just remained blue...
    What i need is to change the iOS4 cal color...I have tried everything, called Apple, etc...there are no solutions. On another iPhone I have the iOS4 cal is Red...go figure why...it is just a random color selection with no possibility to modify it...

    INSANE!!!
