Is it possible to turn off Calendar alarms on BB but leave them in Outlook?

This probably cannot be done but I thought I'd ask anyhow.
Is there any way to disable or turn off calendar reminder alarms on the blackberry yet leave them enabled on desktop Outlook calendar?

Welcome to the forums.

 

Yes, you can turn them off in the Calendar Options.  You can set the Default Reminder to 'None' and the Display Reminders  to 'No'.

Thank you for the help - I found where I can set the Default reminder - would that only be for new appointments I create on the BB though?
Also - I cannot find the "Display Reminders" option.  Maybe my s/w is old (it's issued by my employer) - version is v4.1.0.194 (Platform 2.0.0.90)  Maybe my unit doesn't have that option?
Again - thank you for your assistance!

Yes, the default reminder would be for NEW appts.  You'd have to manually edit the reminder for existing appointments.

 

As for the Display Reminders, you're correct that it could be for newer models.  I haven't used 4.1 in a while.  What device do you have?

I don't see an option for 'Display Reminders' in the 4.1 User Manual.

 

Must be a 4.2 or 4.3 and higher option.  You can install 4.5 on your device and you will have the option, though.
