    Have been using a BB for years but have never used the calendar. Was just looking for an app that would send me a reminder for important dates like birthdays and then I wondered if the calendar would do this.

    Have been looking around a bit.... if I enter a birthday in Contacts, I see that it shows up in the Calendar.

    So under Options in the Calendar, I set the default reminder to 3 days. Does this mean that I will get some sort of note 3 days before a birthday? Do I have to open the Calendar to see it, or is it an email, or what?

    Thanks for any help.

    When the reminder comes due, it pops up a window on your device. It will stay there until you dismiss or reset the reminder.

    It works for Birthdays and Anniversaries from contacts, along with your regular appointments.

    You will get a white box alarm alert.

    While in Calendar:

    General Options

    Here you can set various Calendar functions such as Default Reminder, Start/End Of Day, Initial View.

    In Profiles:


    Here you can edit the type of alerts you will get for your calendar such as tone and Volume.

    So good to know.

    Is it possible to have more than one reminder.... like, one 3 days before and another 1 day before and another the day of?

    I am really absent-minded.

    Thanks for your answer, Reed!
