Default All Day Event Reminder

Please Login to Remove!

I posted this under the 8300 discussion but it may be more relevant there...

I can't seem to determine how the Blackberry handles all day event reminders.

On my old Treo 650, the reminder for an all day event was midnight on the day of the event. So if you had an all day event that stared on September 27th, the default reminder would trigger as soon as it was September 27th (that is the second the clock struck midnight). Thus, if I set the Treo to remind me 8 hours before, I would get a reminder at 6:00pm on the 26th.

I created an all day event for Thursday September 27th and set the reminder to 8 hours. I received the reminder notification at 8:45am on September 27th. I would have assumed that it would have reminded me in the 26th (the day before) at 6:00pm.

Does anyone know how the device handles all day event reminders?

My scheduled events remind me just fine.
