    Is this possible? I'd like to have all my friends birthdays available on my iphone...but it'll be a hassle to go through each one individually...

    Yeah .... if there's some easy "trick" to this, I'd love to hear it as well.

    Just facebook dates in general (Events, parties, birthdays, etc.) in the iPhone calendar would make my day.

    Use a program like iMacros to grab the data and export it to a file. Then have Outlook import the file, then sync it to your iPhone calendar.
