Now I need advice re: Crackberry

OK, I love my new Crackberry Pearl, but the calendar function is causing me to lose sleep. The stupid device woke me up in the middle of the night with a calendar reminder.

I like the calendar function (synchs with Outlook), and I still want the chime feature....but I need this thing not to turn on in the middle of the night and wake me up. Anyway I can set this so the reminder only goes off when I have turned it on manually?

easist way to fix this is to soak the device in a bowl of warm water overnight.

Calendar or Alarm?

A calendar works just like M$ Outlook. If you set an event for 3am, its going to go off at 3am.
Are you sure an Alarm isn't set? You can change those, disable them, set them to work on weekdays only, etc....

Or, do like I do, and set it to "quiet" profile at night so nothing makes sounds (er....except alarms).

Yes, it is a calendar entry. Here is the way it works. My calendar entry was for October 3 (tomorrow); but I had a reminder set to go off...it must have been an odd number of hours or days, so that the reminder happened to occur in the middle of last night. So, the device turns on, middle of night, and I hear the calendar reminder tone...followed by all the email and message tones (now that the device is on).

I like the warm-water soaking solution. May have to give that a try.

Just change the reminder time for all occurrences of the event when you edit the event. It can be set anywhere from 5 minutes to days/weeks.
