Default Calendar question on the 9530...

Please Login to Remove!

Hello everyone. So this thread might be better in the newbie section, but since the storm is so different than the other BB's I figured here is a good place to start. I've had my storm since April 2009 and am just starting to use the calendar. I use google sync and have had good luck putting appointments (my work schedule) in on my google calendar then syncing it to have the appointments on my BB storm.

My problem is with understanding how the native calendar on the storm works. I looked through the FAQ, but not much on the calendar.

I am interested in learning a little more about the different calendars that I can chose from. Right now I have 3 (Facebook,, and [email address]) They each have a color associated with them (green, blue, and orange respectively).
I have my work schedule under one calendar (becuase this is how goggle sync works), however becuase I have 2 jobs, I wanted to have a different color for the busy time be different between the two jobs so I have another indicator of where I am supose to be that day (Am I flipping burgers at MacDonalds or at Burger King).

Can I create different calendars on my BB to put the two jobs on or is it easier to just keep them on the same one and differentiate them by changing their color?

Is there a way to find the next appointment quickely? I looked at the agenda view, but it just lists the morning alarm each day.

I use my storm to wake me up in the morning with the alarm, but I don't want this displayed on the calendar. Is there a way to set this so it does not show up?

Is there a calendar app that you think is better than the native app?

Thanks for any help you can give me.
