When entering birthdays on a Galaxy Ace S8530i (e.g. Tim 1993), how can I get the calendar to show Tim 1993 20 where the 20 on the end is Tim's age?

Question seems clear enough to me, when OP enters a contacts birthday how can he get it to show how old the contact is on the calender reminder, is that correct? – Peanut Jan 3 '13 at 19:29
@Sapper, for you to know, you cannot show the age in your (stock) calendar. But automatic addition of event for birthdays is possible. See the anwer. – Sid Jan 4 '13 at 16:19

First of all, remember that you can only do this with your birthdays and events that are in your google account contacts. NOT phone contacts.

  1. Go to from a computer.
  2. Under Other calendars in the left pane, click add.
  3. Click Browse interesting calendars
  4. Click More (the More next to Sports).
  5. On Contacts' birthdays and events, click subscribe.
  6. Sync your contacts and calendar with your google account.

After sucessful syncing, the events should appear in your handsets calendar.

If you need to add the event details of your phone contacts, you need to export your phone contacts to your google account (or to your Gmail)

Doesn't answer the question: Automatically displaying the age of the contact in title of the event. I remember Nokia non-smartphones doing this just fine anno 2002. – abstrask May 6 '13 at 17:21
