    can't get alert to go off in calender

    Advertisement



    I am new to bb. I cannot seem to be able to get any kind of alert to come up when my event is due on the calender. I see a little bell next to event. My profile has everything turned on.

    check the time the reminder is set to go off in the calendar. Just tested mine and it made the noise I had calender set to and I got a little pop up box.

    You may also try a battery pull if you are sure your profile is set to alert you for calendar events.

    It shouldn't if he said he "can't get the event to alert when it is due". The event is coming up it sounds like, just not alerting. If it was a DST issue, the alert would be an hour behind.

    I think there are some assocated issues with alerts that are fixed by the calendar patch.. at least it fixed my issues so may be worth checking out.

    Have you set your reminder? Mine is set to default at "0" minutes. Tell us all the settings you have in there to see if something is off. It could be something very simple.

    Re: can't get alert to go off in calender

    hoosierdaddynow, I would do a device wipe using JL_cmder and install the latest OS here:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...3314DF2B3CB9CE
    Don't install the calendar patch. There are known issues with using the patch and it causing
    App error 205 to occur.
    Make sure you delete the vendor.xml file prior to running DM and App Loader and installing OS.
    Let us know if you need any further assistance.
