In month view, it shows the event if occurring at certain hours. However, for whole day event, it does not show indication. Anyone else seen this problem? Palm needs to fix in next update.
Yep, I've noticed that. Also I haven't found a way to set a yearly repeating event. I've been using Palm products long before they made phones and I always had all important birthdays programmed in -- since 1995 I have never accidently missed a birthay because of it. Now I have to go in and manually put in my birthdays each year (when I synced my data it didn't recognize these events). I guess they took this feature out of WebOS because they want you to buy phones more often than once a year
There is a Preware patch that will enable the4 all-day events in month view.
To get the brithdays to repeat is possible if you are syncing from Google Calendar and Gmail contacts. Just add the Contact's birthdays and events calendar to your Google calendar.
The sync with email is a good Idea. But since I have so much stuff in both of my email address books that I don't want cluttering up my phone I'm afraid to do that. I guess I could open a new email account set the birthdays and sync with that account which would give me an extra backup for my contact data. Once I had to completely reset my phone and had to use my palm profile to back my stuff up but I lost some of my contacts...I don't trust that method any more.
The month view patch is one of over 200 patches currently avaiilable for the Pre in the Preware application. Check out this link on PreCentral.net for instructions on installing Preware. http://www.precentral.net/getting-started-preware
