Currently Being ModeratedJul 30, 2009 11:09 PM (in response to butterfly197915)I always keep mine on silent and don't have any problem noticing the alerts, normally 15-30 minutes in advance of needing to be someplace. If you are trying to be alerted of events days in advance so you can reschedule them, you are using the wrong application; look into some type of task planning software. The calendar is just a calendar (something I normally look at several times per day to find out where I'm supposed to be and to avoid future scheduling conflicts), it's not a "to-do list."
If the iphone doesn't work for you, go buy a pre or something else that meets your needs.MacBook Pro, Powerbook G4, Mini, iphones 3GS, 3G, ipod Touch, Apple TV, etc., Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 30, 2009 11:43 PM (in response to Craig Baron)Thanks, for that response. I am still hoping SOMEONE will be able to help. Apple, iTunes, nor ATT know EXACTLY what application to use because the only alert on the phone is to turn it on & like I said only 2 days in advance. I personally have a daughter in theater & a son in the Army to & from Iraq with GBaby on the way. So...I have multiple needs for alerts & options to reset them for another time if needed. I've already been told the same thing you just told me. What I'm asking is if ANYONE knows how to make the iPhone do this. I was told of one application that does this but has to be RUNNING to send the alerts. I'm not the only owner desperatly seeking the resolution to this. We WANT TO KEEP THE iPhone. But NEED our calender/appointment reminder alerts. There HAS to be an answer other than Jailbreaking like a lot of people are having to do!iPhone OS 3.0

Currently Being ModeratedJul 31, 2009 5:59 AM (in response to butterfly197915)I am now syncing with Google calendar, instead of the native calendar sync. With Google, you can set events to send you a text or an email notification prior to events. It works very well, and it's free.MacBook Pro, PowerMac G5 2X2 ghz, iPhone 3Gs, Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 31, 2009 7:37 AM (in response to butterfly197915)I do not use a planning app of that type, but this is the type of thing I was thinking about:
Take a look and see if something like this is what you are looking for, there are many more similar apps available. As you noted, the calendar is just a basic calendar; it sounds like you need something more.MacBook Pro, Powerbook G4, Mini, iphones 3GS, 3G, ipod Touch, Apple TV, etc., Mac OS X (10.5.7)
Currently Being ModeratedJul 31, 2009 11:58 AM (in response to neuroanatomist)That is exactly what I was hearing for 2 days & getting very frustrated. I sent in my feedback 2 nights ago when it became evident this was going to be a headache. Thank you. Maybe if enough people send in their thoughts about that little on & of switch, Apple will at least upgrade to set loader/longer & different notifications.iPhone OS 3.0
Currently Being ModeratedOct 27, 2009 9:33 AM (in response to butterfly197915)I came from the palm centro and the non-stop reminders of the calander is what I live by! I am the owner of two retail stores and have so much to remember and exact times are not always condusive to my schedule. If I am assisting a customer and my phone beeps to remind me a bill is due or I have to place an order and I don't see it I am in trouble. Yesterday I forgot to call in payroll!!! I have spent as much as 19.99 on an app to do this and nothing works like that. I am going back to the palm for this one feature. My husband bought his iPhone the same day so I will continue to hope someone will do a "palm reminder" app but until then back to my centro...iPhone OS 3.1.2
