    I want to set my Blackberry 8530 to alert me every 2 hours or so as a personal reminder. What would be the best way to do this so that I can set up these alerts everyday between the hours of X and Y?

    I haven't found any apps that have helped me with this and the calendar is messy and time consuming to set up.

    Any help is appreciated, thank you!

    Welcome to the forums.

    Native features, used the right way.

    1st - Auto On/Off. Set it so the device will turn on at least a minute before the 1st alert. And then off when you no longer need it buzzing you.

    2nd - Tasks. Create a task and name it "My alert 1" or something. Make it ongoing, due date somewhere in the future and time 10:00, alert set to relative: 2 hours. That will be your 08:00 alert. Last but not least, make it daily. Repeat the process, now "My alert 2", seting the due date for same date in the future 12:00and so on. You'll end up with a bunch of "My alerts" but you'll get the effect you want.

    You could also create appointments in the agenda... but that would leave it kinda poluted...
