I used to use my events in Google Calendar for reminding me of my events through SMS alerts earlier (when I had a simple mobile). Now I've got those synced up in my Android 2.1 (Samsung Galaxy 3 Apollo) and I would like it to remind me of my events by alarm instead of SMSes. Is this possible?
Using stock Calendar apps, you can
Press "Menu Button" > Tap "More" > Tap "Settings" > Tap "Set Alerts & Notifications" to set the phone to ring for each reminder you've set for each events.
The stock calendar icon:
press "Menu", then tap on "More":
tap "Set alerts & notifications":
tap on "Alert":
This is on Calendar version 7 on 2.1-eclair Samsung Spica
- Log on to Google Calendar Online through web browser (I did this on PC. Not sure if these steps are available on mobile calendar site).
- Go to Settings > Calendar Settings > Calenders > Click Notification against your specific Calendar.
- Remove reminder for SMS and add Reminder for Pop Up.
By the above steps, whenever a new event is added on-line, it will set an alarm notification for it on mobile when synced.
For already created event, change the notification for each event to Pop Up through web browser.
