1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    If you add a contact via Gmail you can add the persons birthday which in turn you can sync with your Google calendar. But if you add a contact via your phone book or what ever you want to call it there is not a option to add a birthday. I could be wrong but poked around for quite some time and didn't see it. If it is true then I see this as a silly simple to fix over sight. Also the one and only thing I miss from my WM6.1 phone is that you could set a new event such as a birthday and if you put the start date as the actual date it would add a number next to it equal to the amount that it had repeated. For example if I put my birthday 12/3/70 this year it would say "My birthday 40" I know its trivial to some but is very useful.

    There are quite a few problems with the contact manager. The biggest one I feel is that the phone supports group filters, but the only way to assign a contact to a group is in your gmail account...just like birthdays. There are a lot of us that are hoping for a significant improvement in the contact application with the 2.1 or future upgrades.

    Did you notice I used the words silly and trivial. Google prides itself on cross app integration is why I find the birthday thing odd. I truly love my phone was just pointing out two things that would make it better in my opinion. I probably should have used the quote but I'm on my phone and not sure how to do it. This is a reply to the"anything else you want to complain about"
