I have a really frustrating problem with iCloud calendar alerts that is driving me crazy...


I don't want to receive any alerts for events unless I specifically set an alert when I create the event.


I'm using the following settings on my iOS devices:


Default Alerts>


Birthdays: NONE

Events: NONE

All day events: NONE


In preferences on the web version of iCal "Add a default alert to new events and invitations" is NOT ticked.


And finally in iCal, I'm using the following settings:




Events: NONE

All day events: NONE

Birthdays: NONE


Now, if I create an event on either my iPad or iPhone, it behaves as expected and there is no alert added. However, if I create an event in iCal, it always shows on my iOS devices with an alert set for "At time of event". This is driving me nuts, is it a bug???

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7), iCal
