    Hi,

    Is it possible to link up Facebook Calendar with the calendar app on mango? Having migrated from a blackberry and been used to all Facebook events syncing, I can't understand why birthdays won't sync

    On my phone it did sync.
    I have the facebook birthdays on the calendar

    Go to Calendar -> Settings
    Also, you can go to People -> settings, scroll down, tap and hold on Facebook account and choose "Sync" from the menu that appears

    yes, I'm sure :)
    Each calendar source has a different color. I can easily tell which items are from Live and which are from Facebook.
    Also, that event I was mentioning, it was only in Facebook. I clicked "i will be attending" and i noticed that it later appeared in my phone calendar.

    On my Calendar settings I have the following Calendars.
    Windows Live = Off
    US Holidays (Windows Live) = Off
    Birthday Calendar (Windows Live) = Off
    Google = On
    Calendar (Facebook) = Off

    Then there are two preferences at the bottom:

    Show to dos on the calendar.
    Only show facebook events I've responded to.

    Mine wern't showing any birthdays until I did so much messing about I don't know what worked!
    I went into People settings and synced Facebook, I then went into People and opened a few and checked they had birthdays there. I then went into calendar to check check settings - didn't change anything and all calendars are on ie Windows Live, My Calendar, UK Holidays and Facebook. I think I also turned my phone off and back on again.
    Next time I looked at my tiles I noticed there was a birthday reminder on the calendar tile, so I opened it up and now September and all other months are full of birthdays!
