    Anybody else seeing this? I've tried clearing data in the Calendar and Calendar Storage "apps", but not much else yet... not sure what else to try. I've double checked and appear to be syncing everything appropriately.

    They didn't sync on the RAZR maxx either.

    What I did was input the contact birthdays to my Google calendar. PITA, but it works! :)

    Out of curiosity, does the Maxx give the option to sync them in the Calendar settings, and simply not work? Or does it not even give the option?

    Just looked again. Calendar doesn't give you that choice. Under accounts Google synch allows synching contacts....but the birthdays do not synch to the calendar. Oh well....

    On the M it does give you that choice, but doesn't seem to want to do it. Weird...

    On my Droid 4 Calendar I can choose "Calendars to display" and choose 'Contacts Birthdays and events" though that may be from enabling it on Google Calendar from the PC/Web connection initially.

    I keep all my contacts sync'ed with Google so Contacts, Calendars, etc...all point to my google user account only, and I have nothing set to show/use the "phones" calendar or contacts.

    Yep...looks like one of the default calendars I added via the PC/web on google.com Calendars. It reads it in from my Google sync'd contacts and created it....and I can select it to be displayed in my Calendar on the phone.

    Unless I'm mistaken, that's how mine is setup as well. I have no contacts outside of my Google account, and no calendars except my Google Calendar.

    Still no luck on this - and I was able to get my hands on a Razr Maxx and see that it actually does work on it.

    Yep - if your contact has a birthday in the contact info, you should be able to go over to Google Calendar on the web and see it there automatically (I think it happens pretty fast) as long as it's checked on the left side of the screen. Then in the Calendar App on the phone, it should give you the option to select that. That's all I did, and it was working perfectly.

    Doesn't work for me either...

    I have the same issue with my Droid RAZR M. I have all the syncs and calendar options enabled, but my contact's birthday's do not sync. FWIW... the birthdays were added via PC/Web at contacts.google.com... I see them fine at calendar.google.com - they just don't appear on my phone. Interestly, I have also added the NBA Lakers "other calendar" via the web interface, and those items show fine on my phone.

    For whatever it might be worth, I ran the Jelly Bean leak on my M for awhile and it fixed this problem.
