Calendar alerts not happening

My calendar entries have little yellow bells by them, but the Bb's not giving any kind of audible alert tone or vibration when the appt. is due. I've looked in calendar options, profiles, where my Bb is set to "normal," and settings, but nothing about setting the calendar alerts is there.  It seems like such a simple issue--anyone know how to turn on the calendar alert?

 

Thanks so much for your time, and best wishes!

Re: Calendar alerts not happening

You have to first click on your profile icon, then scroll down and select advanced. Then click on normal if that's what you use. Then you will see all the things you can change the tone for. Click calendar and adjust as you wish, just remember to hit the back key and save.

Re: Calendar alerts not happening

Thank you so much for responding with such detailed how-to.  I just have one remaining question.  How do I see the alert options once I'm in calendar after choosing the profile?  I've clicked on profiles, chosen "loud" by clicking the trackball, and then I'm presented with the original screen of icons.  I then click on calendar so I can see the options for alerts, but instead I just see my opening calendar page.   I really appreciate your time and help...very generous of you, and I hope it comes back to you many times over.

Re: Calendar alerts not happening

Once you click Profiles, scroll to the bottom of the choices and click Advanced. Then in the screen that appears next click the Active profile. From there you can edit the Calendar settings

Re: Calendar alerts not happening

After searching the forums for this exact topic I finally found it. Glad I didn't have to start a new one Smiley Happy

 

I've had my BB for approx 2 weeks. I'm using a BB Curve 8330 with v4.5.0.77 and I'm on Verizon.

 

I've done all the steps that you all suggested for getting the calendar alerts to work and NOTHING has helped. I've tried pulling the battery and stuff like that. I set myself multiple test events and nothing happens like it should. All of my profiles are set to have the phone tone alert out of holster and vibrate only when in holster. It does neither of these. While I type I even set a test event...no alert.

 

Any further ideas to solve this issue?
