Default Snoozing an appointment?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there anyway to snooze an appointment? I know you can snooze the alarm, but what about an appointment. You can do this on Palm OS and with Outlook, why not on a BlackBerry? I running a 7100t with 3.8 on it.

Any third party apps that do this??

I'm really starting to question these people who made this blackberry. Were they all smoking crack when they wrote the operating system!?! NO SNOOZE OPTION!!!! So annoying, it only beeps like 2 times, and then if I forget, I'm screwed I miss the apointment.

I agree. I would also like the backlight to turn on when the alarm goes off. This thing does a good job of waking me up but I can't find the damn thing in the dark!

Ha! Too true, it is great but you make more noise trying to locate the crazy thing than it does going off!! :D
Too bad you can't set the backlight settings in the PROFILES...

Take a look at PocketDay as I think it will turn on the backlight when an alarm goes off. No help on the snooze however.

I'd love a reminder snooze feature in PocketDay if possible ;)

Snooze is available in PocketPCs, so I can imagine that at some point, RIM will include it.

This is disappointing. I just got my 7290 last week and was hoping I was missing something when I couldn't figure out to snooze an appt.... oh well...

Not a final solution but one that I have used on a couple occasions so I do not miss important appointments.

Set up the normal appointment, so the alarm goes off at whatever timeframe (5, 10, 15 min) before the actual appointment.
Set up a second appointment, so the alarm goes off 5-10 minutes after your first alarm.

Again, not the best solution (the best solution would involve RIM's dev team) but helpful when I have a "can not miss" appointment.

What I do is change the appt start time and it creates kind of a snooze effect...

I miss the snooze my iPAQ had but with my 7100g I've been changing the reminder setting from 15 to 10 to 5 minutes. Kind of a pain but it works for me.

The lack of a snooze is unbelievable to me! i am dumbfounded by this. Has anyone at RIM ever used outlook and understood what PIM features mean? Tasks are unusable to me if i can't snooze with one click. Wow. I can't wait for the HTC Wizard/TMobile Vario to come out.

The 8700 has implemented the snooze function. I believe it may be a function of the 4.1 OS, so may be available for other phones shortly.

Hope this helps.

How are you snoozing it from the 8700? Currently I do not have that option...

When a notification pops up, I have three options, Open, Dismiss and Snooze. I select Snooze.

I finally found the solution on the 8700... In the calendar options you set what the length of snooze you want it to be. It is kind of goofy that you can't change the snooze time dynamically, but it is a small improvement!
