Arrow Can Bold Do This?

Please Login to Remove!

I need a phone that can schedule every minute of my day right down to when I'm supposed to brush my teeth, exercise, take a shower, etc., and I need alerts 5 minutes before and another alert at the moment of every task.

I'm talking about pretty rigorous scheduling here. Alert to wake me up, alert 5 minutes before shower, alert at shower, alert 5 minutes before breakfast, alert at breakfast, etc. Every detail with an alert 5 minutes ahead, for every day.

And I need to be able to set 1 schedule up for Monday - Thursday, a different schedule up for Friday, another for Saturday, and another for Sunday. And I need the phone to just automatically keep all these tasks up every day without me having to keep setting it.

Can the Blackberry Bold do this for me? If so, how? Can I do this with the software included, or will I need something third-party?

Thanks

There is a Calender that you can set a schedule or appointments and reminder setting as well as a Task app that you can sechule many different things with a reminder as well, and on both you can chose the amount of time you want it to remind you.

If I were you, I would get professional help. And I don't mean tech support.

No, there isn't a BlackBerry capable of being this unfathomably OCD. A BlackBerry isn't for you. As stated earlier, maybe professional help is in order?

Well, it can do that. You can set it to make alerts, and have things repeat on a custom schedule.

Seriously though, if you need a phone to tell you all of these things, there is something wrong. Hopefully you are exaggerating to get a point across, if not, like i said, there is something wrong.

Is there a way to do that and also have it vocalize the event? "Brush your teeth!" "Comb your hair!" "Go to bus stop!" "Quit picking your nose!" I like it. I would get that for my 13 yr old.

I am not so sure we should make fun of his request as he may have some medical conditions that require what he is requesting. I know the request sounds strange but not so sure we should judje.

You can set up custom alerts for tasks based on time with REXwireless's ToDoMatrix. It's not free, but it will do what you want. Reminders at intervals you set, plus multiple reminders for one event/task.
