Calendar Reminders Not Working

I'm having a weird problem with calendar reminders.

I have two calendars - the personal one (local) and a google sync. The sync is working fine (both ways). However, no matter which calendar I save the event to, no matter what time period I use for the reminder, the reminder will NOT go off. Nothing. Sound is on Reminders in notifications. All my other notifications work as they should. But for calendar reminders, I get no LED, no vibe, no sound when the event alarm should go off. Time zone is set to GMT-5 (EST), which is correct.

Any ideas? Can I delete the app and reinstall it?

Re: Calendar Reminders Not Working

Hello slickvguy and welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Sorry to hear you're experiencing an issue with your Calendar and notifications.

 

Does the Calendar entry display? Just no tone and LED is produced?

 

Go to Settings>Notifications and ensure Mode shows Normal. Scroll down to Reminders under Notifications/Alerts. Ensure Sound is On, select the desired Tone and you can opt to enable Vibration on or off and ensure LED is set to On.

 

Let us know if the tone and LED now work.

 

Thanks!

Re: Calendar Reminders Not Working

I'm having the same problem with my Verizon Z10 (STL100-4) running OS 10.0.9.422.  No matter what I do I can't get calendar reminders to occur.  I will try to reboot the phone.
