    i've searched the forums here about getting a repeating audio alert for calendar -- but for the life of me, can't find something that will repeat an alarm for the calendar (not sms, or other notification).

    handcent and missed call will NOT do it.

    anyone with advice on another app that will give me the repeating audio i want?

    thanks!

    You use the alarm. Like for me, I need to take medicine daily. I set an alarm to remind me. You can do the same and set your alarm up to alert you for whatever day you choose.

    are you talking about reminder notifications? so if you a reminder notifies you of an appointment, it sounds again before the appointment approaches?

    i haven't seen an app that fixes this, but i do know that if you snooze it, it will notify you again.

    640k your not addressing real issue

    DUH! How could "dwake" he/she know to put it on snooze if they don't now the notification has occured,

    I don't think you understand the problem "dwake" is addressing. Concerning ANY notification tone, most are missed because of the single week audible tone, vibrate is not strong enough, and it fails to repeat indefinately until acknowledged. Whether text, email, missed call, voicemail or calander notification event, my own friends dont here any of my notifications tones either. Most of us keep the phone in our pockets and if anyone is talking or ambient sound in car, office or anywhere else overshadows the single weak tone. Or when I leave it on my office desk or kitchen table I have no idea i recieved a text, email or calender alert after leaving the room for a minute.

    As for substituting Alarm for calender, it does not substitue for calender as it has no description for event. Office meeting, dentist, MD, Birthday, what's it for? I't to wake you up. We would be lucky to have the alarm tone available with the calender and have it repeat every 5 minutes.

    All my previous phones required manual acknowledgment to stop the notifiaction tone that repeated about every 5 minutes. You then eventually get it within reasonable time.

    try my 'calendar snooze' app from the market.

    it also let you set repeating alerts for events.

    for example
    so remind me 5 times with a minute between..
    and then 5 times with 10 minutes in between

    as example..

    Tried an app called Calendar Snooze. The free version has really annoying ads, have not tried the paid version yet. Will do a snooze and constant alerts.
    Good luck.
