Hi, I am new to this so please forgive me if this is not posted correctly. Since loading ios6 to my 4s it has lost the ability to set a second event alert in calendar-is this supposed to be? If not, help!


iPhone 4S, iOS 6

    Are you adding the event to the iCloud calendar, the default calendar on the device, or some other calendar?

     

    For example, Google calendar does not have the option to add a second reminder.

    I am using the default iPhone calendar although having opened 'calendars' it shows ticks against all iCloud, yahoo and my email calendar - sorry if this sounds a bit vague but I am new to iPhones.

    Open the Calendar.

    Tap the + to add an event.

    Scroll to the bottom where it lists "Calendar".  Which account does it show?

     

    If it is a Gmail account, there is no 2nd alert.

    If it is iCloud or the default iOS calendar, a 2nd alert should be accessible.

     

    You can change the calendar by selecting the Calendar account option and picking a different calendar.

    My thanks to you for your assistance- by working back I found a conflict with my hotmail calendar-having removed this I now have the second alert back.

     

    Once again, thank you for your help.
