Default Calendar Reminder

Please Login to Remove!

How in the blazes do you change the calendar reminder?

I have navigated to the calendar, found the date and event that I wanted to select a reminder for, selected the menu key, scrolled down to the options key, and under the Calendar Options screen, set the Default Reminder time six hours ahead.

Still, the reminder chime/vibrate only gives me a 15 minute reminder. Obviously that is not a long enough reminder if you are a couple of hours away from the event you wish to be reminded of.

Idealy, I would like the reminder to be given to me at the beginning of the day, so that I will not overlook the event in my scheduling, but I cannot figure out how to increase this 15 minute setting.

I am using a BB Curve 8310. Please help.

Thanks,
Ed Wood

Move the 15 minutes to 6 hours, 12 hours, whatever you desire.

One week?

Thanks for your response, but just how do you do that? I have set the default reminder time to 6 hours in the location as indicated in the previous post. That is the only place where I have found any setting.

The only thing that I have not done is power off my BB, then back on. I will try that and see if the new setting is accepted.

Thanks,
Ed

When you create OR edit a calendar item, scroll down in the screen to REMINDER. Click on the hours there for many more choices. Does that help?

When I powered the phone off then back on (I should have known that was necessary) the reminder changed from the former 15 min default to the new setting.

Thanks for all your help.
