I seem to have found a bug in Contacts. If I set a birthday for a contact, it shows up as 1 day before when I view the contact. For example, If I set 01/23/1986 for a contact, It displays January 22 1986 for the birthday when I view that contact. It does indeed go to the correct day when clicked on -- in the calendar but shows a day before in text. Can anyone confirm this on your N9 device.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think this has something to do with transfering the contacts from my E72 or with the calendar. Working on identifying what exactly it might be. Going to try what you suggested now.
Is there an app that scans your contacts and adds them to my calendar as recurring events? I had Best Birthday app on my E72 that worked like a charm. Hoping something like that will come to MeeGo
Unfortunately I have exactly the same problem with my N9.
And I tried manually, delete and reenter birthdays. When I click save it goes back to 1 day before actual birthday. Any other suggestions pls?
I'm experiencing the same problem as well. The event appears a day after. I was syncing calendar using N900 through bluetooth. I tried so many times and yet this same result happens
Please someone file a bug for this.
I have this problem, too. I've transferred all my contacts from an N900 to the N9 via Bluetooth. Interestingly, I remember having the same problem with older Nokia phones in the past; I think I had it with an N85 as well.
Here's what I noticed: the phone may show the correct date or be off by one day, depending on the time of the day you look at it. So, what you see in the morning may be different than what you see in the evening for different contacts! I think this has something to do with time zones, but, regardless, it's obviously a bug.
Now, I just used Nokia PC Suite to open up each of my contacts with a birthday, delete the birthday field, save, open again, add the birthday field back, and save. This has not helped at all. I will have to try and do this directly on the phone next. What a pain!
