8300 Curve - AT&T

When the appointment calendar in the agenda view most items are black on a white background - great, easy to see. Some items however are yellow on a white background - almost impossible to see. It appears as though theese are items whose start or end times conflict with one another. How can I change this? I would dearly like for those to be black on white as well.

Thanks in advance... Bob

I did not want to do this as they are not really appointments but reminders to tell me to do things at a certain time. I may need to do 3 things at 4 o'clock.

It would if I could do this (I've asked previously with no results), set the default duration of an appt. as 0 minutes. It is a duplicate waste of time to have to set the ending time as the same as the begining time. Also if I did that I would only want 1 minute between reminders.

Okay, I get the point. But here is the $1,000,000 question. In the contact app. If you click on a name it will show the address, phone # etc. including notes you typed in. In the appts. app if you click on an appt. you go into the edit screen & have to scroll down 3 miles to see your notes. If it would work as the contacts do I could put all reminders in a single appt. Is that enough complaining for now?

One more thing I forgot about you suggestion. I may have a "real" appointment the goes from 9 am to 2 pm if I set any "reminders" during that extended period everything will show as conflicting.

Isn't there an option "do not highlight conflicts" or something like that?

You can change the color of appointments in the options section of the calendar.

I do not see a color option, where specifically is it in the menu (8300 AT&T)?
