    birthday error

    If I look up the information on any given contact on my Rezound, the birthdate shown is one day later than the actual birthdate. If I go to the edit mode, the birthdate shows up correctly. Any ideas what is wrong?

    I don't understand what you mean by "file default settings" and how they are "locked".

    Let me restate the problem. On most, but not all, of my contacts, the information which was synced from Google contacts, both birthdates and anniversary dates show up as one day later than the actual date. If I go to the edit mode, the correct date shows. Even if I delete the date shown in the edit mode and re-enter it, upon going back to the contact, the incorrect date is shown. If I go to my contacts via Google, where the correct date is shown, re-enter it, the incorrect date shows on the Rezound contact. I force a re-sync with my Google contacts, and no correction is made. I never entered the incorrect date, so why does the Rezound show the incorrect date, always one day higher than the actual date, on most of the contacts? Sounds like a software glitch to me.
    Does anyone have a fix?

    This was a known issue pre OTA. If you grab the OTA update it should be fixed. I'm not sure what aqworldthunder was talking about

    I do have the latest update. (not rooted) android version 2.3.4, sense ver 3.5, software no. 2.01.605.11

    I found where they mentioned the problem back in Nov 2011 about Facebook contacts being a day early. All my contacts are via Google, none from Facebook and they are shifted a day later. Maybe they corrected for Facebook and shifted Google.

    I
    played with entering dates into my Google contacts, and any date entered from Jan 1, 1970 or later show up correctly on the Rezound contact list. If the date is December 31, 1969 or earlier, it shows up as one day later in the Rezound contact list. Even December 31, 1969 shows up as Jan 1.

    I wonder if it's related to your account or if this is a widespread issue. Also this reminds me of the Y2K bug. Since not everyone fixed that problem by adding formatting for a 4 digit year vs starting time at 1970.

    Man, your little commercial asking for thanks is starting to irritate me with that ASCII graphic stuff. It's all I see when combing thru the unread posts.

    I believe I was actually the first person to make note of this issue. However, the OTA update fixed the problem.

    I believe I have the latest OTA update as noted above, (software no. 2.01.605.11) and still have the problem.

    I wonder if someone could help me out here. Go to one of your Google contacts on your computer and change their birthdate to December 29, 1969. Then go to your phone, and through the "People" tab, find that person and see what date it shows for their birthday. Dec 30, right? Edit that contact on the phone, and in the box you will see December 29, 1969, right? Go back to the computer and change the birthdate to January 2, 1970. Go to your phone and find that person through the People tab. The correct date, January 2 will show, right?

    If it works out that way for you, there is still a software glitch even in the OTA update. If it doesn't, then somehow, I alone have the problem and will have to take the phone to Verizon for further investigation.

    Have you tried to clear data on HTC people after the OTA? You might even need a full factory reset...The latter isn't a great option but it might help.
