I'm using a SM-G920V Galaxy S6 with Android version 6.0.1. When I open the calendar app that comes with the phone, tap "More" in the upper right corner and then "Manage Calendars", there's an option to turn "Contact's birthdays" on and off. To me, that would indicate that it has the capability to display your contact's birthdays on the calendar app. However, I've got it set to "On" and only a few of my contact's birthdays are showing up.

Can anyone tell me how to get all my contact's birthdays to show up?

You probably figured it out by now, but the calendar of birthdays only syncs with the Samsung account.

The fastest way to link a different account to the Samsung account I could find without re adding contacts was by adding a relationship to the contacts you want to set up.

I did this by going to my Contacts app, clicking on my own profile, and under the relationships section adding a relationship. I did it with my family members and they started showing up right away.


You have to enter them into your address book for it to show them. It would be a terrible breach of privacy if it could grab everyone's birthdays from their phones.

On newer phones this is done under the contact. It may still be the same on S6

  • Edit Contact
  • Press on View More
  • Press on Important Dates
  • Press on Add relationship
  • Select Birthday from dropdown and enter it in.
