    Do you have your FB account sync'd to your device? (settings > accounts & sync >)

    Is sync enabled?

    I don't know if you wanted your FB contacts sync'd to you phone contacts.... if so, disabling the sync on FB will remove this... but it SHOULD remove all linking of FB information to your phone.

    You may have to reboot your device after disabling.

    thanks Martin, that did work. In a perfect world I would have the contacts synched, but not their birthdays, but I this has fixed my problem. I appreciate your help.

    you're the first I've seen report this issue... but then again it might not be an issue to others.

    I don't have my FB contacts sync'd... nor will I, but maybe there's a FB setting that will disable the birthdays?

    Hopefully someone more familiar with syncing FB contacts will pop in.

    That's what I was wondering. Could be an inc feature.

    I just bought my Inc yesterday if that information helps you at all. Not sure if its part of the Froyo thing or whatever comes on the newest versions of the Dinc.

    not Froyo related... as most of us are running that on our various devices.... might be something that the HTC brand does that Moto doesn't....

    You can keep your contacts synced and not have the calendars show up.

    Go into your calendar widget or whatever you use. Go to Settings -> Choose Calendar and uncheck Facebook.

    Thank you!

    knew there had to be a way.... like i said, I don't sync FB contacts, or even use the calendar so it was all foreign territory to me.
