Open contacts then click the menu button (bottum left) click on accounts, Then click on facebook and uncheck sync calendar. Click the sync now button at the bottom of this screen. Go back into calendar and birthdays should be gone. If they are still there go into the calendar app and clear the cache.
HI.. interesting response.. What will happen if I remove account... Will that also wipe out all FB connections (I hope).. I want control of my FB interactions.. Thanks
Yes, if you remove your FB account from the device, it will remove anything that was put there by the app. Of course, you could always uncheck sync contacts to remove them from your contact list.
You don't even need to uninstall the app to get them to go away. Open the app, press menu>settings>sync contacts, and select the remove facebook data option.
Demm..thanks.. all worked well till I got to this option..=>select the remove Facebook data option. ... Does not exist on my SAMSUNG s3.. I really hosed up my contacts..
