Good evening Sailors,

there is one thing that worrys me which is think can be solved easily.

In the contacts app I am able to add the birthday to a contact, including dd.mm.yyyy. Unfortunately in the calendar app on the entered day there is an entry with the contact's name as the title. But not the year of birth of this contact which would be quite nice for calculating how old the contact will become.

So: Please add the year of birth as a comment or detailed description in the calendar entry of a persons birthday.

Best regards

It would be also nice to show the person's age in the reminder, e.g. "Tomorrow XXX becomes YY years old".

...you know, exactly how I had it on my Nokia 6233 in 2006.

@TheOne: Please do not show the year of birth. That's useless information as I'd have to calculate the age myself. Show the age as ScumCoder suggested.

year of birth, as that is information belonging to that person
the other I can calculate on my own :D (and it changes every year by one!)

I vote for showing age, like it is done in iOS: "Martin's 11th Birthday"
