Hi there,

I answered your question via email but wanted to post it here as well since others may have the same question:

Unfortunately the date selector built into the BlackBerry only allows back to that 1970 date. I wish it could handle older dates. What I've seen people do is put a separate field for month, day and year (as popups) and then use a calculation to get a rough age (hard code current year - the year). Unfortunately I don't have any sort of workaround beyond this. Sorry!
