Calender notifications error

Hi! I've got a BB8300 and been very happy with the default calender all this while, till i installed a new theme the OS X Zen... everything works great but my calender notifications seemed to have malfunctioned. I've checked all setting & kept the tone on for calender notifications but nothing works... i don't get "informed" about my appointments & meetings :smileysad:

 

Please Help!

Re: Calendar notifications error

Hi and welcome to the forums!

First try a battery pull. Take the battery out with the phone ON, leave it out for a minute, replace battery and let the BBdevice reboot for 1-2 minutes, try a test calendar appointment.

If that doesn't work:

 

Go back to your old theme and check to see if the calendar goes back to normal, if it does then the calendar is working correctly, but something in the theme is malfunctioning.

 

Please let me know if this helps!

Re: Calendar notifications error

Thank you Bifocals for your suggestions... i tried them all... almost all variations of theme settings vs calender notification settings, but nothing worked! Going back to the earlier theme didn't work either... the trouble is, i don't mind getting rid of OS X Zen theme, but i'm not sure now whether the calender notification error will get solved :smileysad:

 

Should i hard reset the phone?

The battery pull was the hard reset!

Is this an third party theme?

 

The only other thing I can think of is to remove the OS X ZEN theme completly from the device, do a battery reset again, and then try to reinstall. At this point worse case the reinstall does the same thing.....best thing is it starts working again.

Agree?

Re: Calendar notifications error

Yup, it's a third party app!

 

Deleted the theme, hard reset, re-configured the notification settings... but it still doesn't work! It doesn't notify (with or without sound)

 

I tried using the Task function for meeting alerts & it works but without sound, just the notification pop-up... i've checked all settings, everything is ok, nothing is mute... but no sound!

Re: Calendar notifications error
