Very new to Android.

Just bought a new Star X920 (HTC Butterfly clone). Great phone and does nearly everything you could want EXCEPT I am not able to enter any birthday info into my contacts.

I have tried several "birthday apps" from Google Play and all said they could not find any data in contacts.

When I choose "add a new field" in contacts, there is no option for birthdays. Also tried in the calendar but to no avail.

Anyone able to help please. Many thanks in advance.

Is there an option with "add a new field" to add an event?

And, welcome to Geekzone.

Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Hi Bighammer and thanks for the welcome.

No, the "Event" field does not exist. There is only "Phonetic name", "Email", "IM", "Address", "Nickname", and "Website"

Weird aye?

It might depend to where the contact is stored. This could be on the phone, in your Google account, or elsewhere.

I was able to add an Event field to a Google contact, and could set several different types of date (birthday, anniversary, etc). For a Hotmail contact (Exchange ActiveSync) I could only add a birthday. I don't have any phone-only contacts to try with.
