    Advertisement



    hey guys i was wondering if anyone had found a way to set up daily alarms for things like taking medicine, etc?

    i dont want to set up an appt in the calendar ... but i want something to make a noise and pop up at the same time everyday for certain reminders.

    anyone found a way to do this?

    Set the alarm on the device to alert you when you have to do something important.

    you said i perfectly
    "i dont want to set up an appt in the calendar ... but i want something to make a noise and pop up at the same time everyday for certain reminders. "

    the only way i know to do this is to set up a appt in the calender...
    you can set it as a daily occurence or weekly...you can even specify what days of the week

    just scroll down to "RECURRENCE" after choosing a day and time for your
    appt. then choose daily, weekly, monthly, or yearly

    i actually use the calender as a secondary alarm.
    i just seto it up for X:XXam and then select which days of the
    week i want it to go off ( once again use the "RECURRENCE" option)
    i set it up so a different MP3 plays when calender appts go so
    (edit the profile, even on vibrate my calender appts play MP3's)
    i wake up to multiple songs playing (takes alot to wake me up!!)
    hope this helps. the calender is pretty useful

    Re: daily reminders

    the calender can hold (i'm completley guessing here) maybe like 100 appts a day...the only thing you see from the main calender screen is a longer "tick" showing how many appts you have for the day.
    i really think the cal is the gonna be your best bet. just my opinion of course.
    what other kind of stuff would clutter up your calender?
    i didn't even realize you could set the tasks to remind you with an alarm

    Re: daily reminders

    I saw a program called RemindMe over at Handango that may fill the bill for you. I'de like to see a better Calenday app become available (PalmOS users reference DateBk5) with Categories that can be turned on and off with selectable colors/icons.

    I use the current calendar as an alarm clock. My work schedule is on a 3 week rotation, so I have all my workdays on a 3 week repeat and a 2 hour reminder. I also have the phone shut down at 10pm and come on at 8am. When I need to get up for work it wakes me up at 5:30am or 6am. When I don't have work it turns on at 8.
