so i have noticed something weird..

my GF's b-day is this friday (4-20). when she happend to call me earlier today i noticed on her contact picture there was a small birthday cake icon and text that said "tomorrow".

today being 4-18 and her birthday not until 2 days from now i wondered what was going on. so i went to the contact app and tried to verify her birthday, only i couldnt find a field to set her birthday. failing that, i went to the calendar app and it says, and has an event marked on 4-20 for her birthday.

has anyone else noticed this on their phones? the contact notification reports 1 day earlier than supposed to? i have verified that the contact information is correct in exchange. i dont sync contacts with any other service other than exchange, i do howerver sync with multiple exchange accounts.

edit> the calendar entry is probably from exchange but i cant be sure, which may indicate why it is set correctly on the calendar app.

i have searched google and noticed the same complaint (although much older complaints) but most of those people were syncing with facebook *shrugs*

I had a similar experience on mine but it wasnt limited to birthdays. An event would show up a day earlier or later (I cant remember).

Last week or so, I randomly came across an article that said there had been a bug on some samsung phones that caused this issue when an event was added to the calendar as an "all day event." or birthdays now, I add it to the individual contact and it shows up in the calendar without this issue.

yeah my calendar event is showing correctly also, however it tells me it starts at 11pm *shrugs* i verified in exchange there is no time associated to the birthday

this is what i see:



shows correctly on 4-20

\

shows incorrectly on 4-19
