Currently Being ModeratedJan 11, 2010 1:18 AM (in response to Uitje)I am not sure that you can snooze an alarm, maybe someone else can confirm, but you can add a second alert to a calendar item which may help you.
After you have added the first alert, you will receive another option to set a second alert for the calendar item.
Hope this helps.2009 Unibody MBP 2.53GHz, 250GB 4GB, Mac OS X (10.6.2), White iphone 3G 16GB, 1TB Time Capsule, iMac 21.5", 3.06 GHz, 500GB, 4GB

After setting the 1st alert, you get an option for a second. These are at specific time intervals - 5, 10, 15, 30 minutes, 1, 2 hours, 1, 2 days - before the event. There is no snooze option.

Currently Being ModeratedJan 11, 2010 2:02 AM (in response to modular747)Ok, thanks for the response. My problem is that most of the time I create my appointments within outlook (at the office) and they are automatically synced to my iPhone. When doing so it is not possible to use (set) the second alert in outlook. The strange thing is that even if I create a new appointment directly on my iPhone I don’t get the option to set a second alert as stated in the manual.iPhone 3GS (3.1.2), Windows Vista
Currently Being ModeratedJan 12, 2010 11:06 AM (in response to Uitje)I also have the same problem. There should be a feature where you can have the reminder alarm you every minute continuously until you acknowledge it. Two alarms are not enough sometimes.Iphone 3G, iPhone OS 3.1.2
Currently Being ModeratedFeb 7, 2010 11:33 PM (in response to iamplr)I am an Outlook/Exchange user at work. I need two reminders for many appointment - one to end a previous meeting and one right before the next meeting occurs. My old Treo had this. the Nexus 1 has this. The iPhone does not have this for a calendar synched with Exchange. Apple - please!!!
Then make categories in Exchange correctly synchronize.
Then get off AT&T.
