All of my previous dumb cheap phones have the alert sound in calendar sound continuously until I dismissed. The iphone calendar alert sound only lasted couple seconds. What if one just left the phone on the desk for a couple minute break and missed the alert completely? I had missed a few events with this apply "stoopid" design. Am I missing something simple or it's a "stoopid" design?

iPhone 4S, iOS 7.0.4

    Yes, you can set a second alert or choose a different sound.

    Because I have more than just Calendar alerts, Emails, missed calls, Reminders, Weather alerts, etc...

    I can go back to my iPhone and swipe down my notification center to see what I've missed. I do not want a continueous sound like my alarm clock. For important events, i used 2 alerts.

    Anyway it's not a feature of the iPhone,

    You can make your suggest here:

    Even my Outlook on my computer does not perform this way. It provides an alert, and then displays the alert on the computer screen, just like Notification Center does on the iPhone. I'd consider throwing mine against the wall if it acted that way for a simple alert.

    The thread you referenced has been dormant for 5 years. Apparently, not enough people are submitting feedback for Apple to consider this a priority.

    You seem to be confusing the two. An alarm is an alarm, a reminder is just that, a reminder. I'm not sure what "dumb" phones you are referring to, but I've had a lot, and I've never seen a calendar reminder act like an alarm clock that wouldn't stop until acted on.

     

    Try looking through the App store and see if any of the other calendar apps provide you with what you are looking for.

    Answers have been provided. Your amount of arguments would not change the fact that it is designed not as you've expect. I like the alert this way as it is.I do not want to be bombarded. If it's important, set 2 or more alerts.

    You can send feedback here or buy a phone that meet your needs.

    Obviously it had been designed this way, but it can be improved in the future.
