I am updating birthdays with my blackberry BES and IPhone from my outlook calendar. Unfortunately all the birthdays appear to be one day ahead.

so a birthday that was supposed to be on the 18th of August will show in outlook as the 19th of August.

I am using Exchange 2010 and BES 5.0.1. Why is this happening?

All I can think of is a timezone problem...iPhones have a funny setting that adjusts the calendar to a different time than the local time and it messes up alot. Usually by a few hours but I suppose it could be enough for a date change.
Settings-mail contacts calendar-timezone support.

I think there is also a setting in outlook, exchange, and bes that all combined could cause this. I'd check the times of all the servers and any time zone adjusting settings for problems. Also try making a new meeting from your phone and see if the time is funny anywhere else (outlook, webmail, etc...)

Are you up to BES 5.0.1 MR3 ? I've heard some people have had problems with all day calendar entries like you're describing disappear after updating to BES 5.0.1 MR3.

I have upgraded my BES to Version: 5.0.3.31, i don't know whether it is MR3 or no.

Now, I will give a try now with the Calender birthday and see.

The issue is if i create a birthday it shows perfectly fine, but i don't know after how many days it will show one day ahead. I don't see any troubleshooting side of this issue except waiting for that day.

The time zones are same on BES, Exchange and smartphone.

I configured the time server setting on my AD and Exchange and as of now the time seems to be working fine. However I could locate the problem.
