    Question Calendar - Custom Alert Timings?

    Hi,

    In my Calendar Events, am only getting the following options for settings the event alerts under 'Edit':

    None
    On day of event (9:00)
    1 day before (9:00)
    2 day before (9:00)
    1 week before

    Is there any way out for not getting these alerts at these set timings (9:00) like it use to be with my 3GS;

    One day of event
    15 minutes before
    ... & so on.

    The alert time is based on the start time of the event. If you want the alert time to modify I believe you would just change the start time, that's what they're all based off of.

    Thanks n1ckn4m3 for replying. I am selecting them as 'All Day Events', hence no start time.

    In my 3GS on iOS 4.1 when adding a Birthday or Anniversary, I get options like 15minutes before, On the day of the event & so on which are without the set time.

    Ah, you have to set that in iCal, I'm seeing. You set iCal to the 'start of day' time, and that's when it sends the all day alerts.

    Yes Perry. I was having the same exact issue with my new iPhone 5 and iOS 6. Comparing it to my old iPhone 3G - the 3G was set up as you describe above. And yet I was unable to duplicate it either onthe 3G or the new v5.

    Reading thru the whole thread - n1ckn4m3 is correct. I went to my Mac and launched iCal and sure enough the desktop Calendar has significantly more options and settings available which all transfer over when syncing. As compared to the very limitd options available on the iPhone directly.

    You mention how "it used to be on your 3GS" so I assume that you have a more current phone and can use either iOS 5 or 6.....

    In order to sync an iPhone to the Mac offerings - it all goes through iTunes. My suggestion would be to download / install / and launch iTunes on Windows. (no insult - just being very concise) Connect up your iPhone. When it loads into iTunes. Select the device.

    Once you have done that - several TABS across the top appear: Summary - Info - Apps - Tones - Music - TV Shows - Podcasts - Books - Photos.
    Select the INFO TAB.
    Scroll down to the 2nd Section - it should be titled: Sync Calendars.

    Prior to syncing - according to ALL of the information I have found online - your iPhone should sync up with Outlook Calendars just the same that mine does with Mac's iCal. (again assuming you have modern / current gear)

    I know that iOS 5 and 6 both handle Exchange very well - as my iPad for work is handling eMail thru Exchange Server constantly. So Outlook should be a cake-walk.

    Go into Outlook Calendars - set up a Calendar for the type of Event you want to group (my example is birthdays for family members - birthdays) - Then set up the Event itself with all the bells and whistles found in Outlook.

    At the bottom of that iTunes TAB (Info) is an additional Category labeled: Advanced.
    In that section is an option to force the Calendars from your desktop to your iPhone in a 1 time push. (careful this might overwrite existing Calendar stuff - but on the Macs-de and personally I've found it simply to append to pre-existing Events - but I've never verified that is the correct action - it doesn't delete my stuff so I don't care).

    When you are finished - goto iTunes and sync the Calendars.

    BUT YES -- The main take away from this is that you have to set up all the advanced and extra options and features in a Desktop Calendar then push that over to the phone.

    Thanks uberfu for your update. My concern was relating to iPhone 4S.

    I was facing these issues until I got onto to Mac OSX with MBP. Now I am able to set the custom timings for alerts.

    Also, I figured out later the same type of setting could be done with Outlook on Windows PC.

    Will try out your suggestion as well.
