    I set my task in my BB for today at 5:30pm so that when i get home after work it will go off and remind me that I have some things that I want to get done, but after I saved it a few min later it popped up asking if i would like to label in progress or completed. I went back into the task and tried to save it as not started it says "The reminder cannot be set becuase its time has passed.: but I sent the time for 5:30 pm pacific time and its only 9:10am...Why is it doing this? Do I have to leave it as in progress and set the reminder for 9 hours and it will go off when I get home that way? How does this work

    That is strange, make sure that the time and day are correct and when you goto save it mark it as in progress.

    This may seems stupid but did you check the date in your berry settings? Maybe it's set wrong???

    Okay, I did this on my phone, I believe your problem is the reminder setting being 8 hours prior, which is what has already passed.

    Try setting your reminder to 15 mins or something and see if that works.

    If i don't set a reminder time, will it automaticly go off at 5:30 the time i set for the task?

    First thing I would do is a battery pull & then try again starting a brand new task. If nothing else atleast all the trouble you're going through to remember your to do list should keep you from forgetting lol
