Hi Experts,

I'm having an issue with Calendar alerts on my iPhone 4. Whenever I schedule something on my calendar, the alert goes off, then I close it, and then it goes off again right away - the second time.

So... i have to close each alert twice every time, instead of just once. How can i only make the Calendar alert me once?

Please advise.

Thanks in advance!

I don't have that issue on my phone.  Are you sure that when you add the initial request it is not going into two calendars that the iPhone has access to?

Commented:
Are you using exchange or some other shared cal? I noticed at times that my Ical entries can cause a double alert. If you are using Ical/Outlook check and see if one of the previous occurring events has 2 alerts/alarms assigned to the one event on your Desktop/laptop. Then attempt to create a new event and check again on the computer to see if it is just preference on your Cal program.

Did you already check if you have double events in your calendar? I think we need some more details here. How do you add calendar events? Only on your iPhone? Or do you synchronize your calendar with other devices and calendars?

Hello,

I only add events through iPhone. I don't sync it with Outlook. Don't use Exchange, nor any other Shared calendar.

I don't see that there's any "double" entries on my calendar.

How should I proceed with troubleshooting this? What could it be?

Thank You!

I know you can add 2 alerts (and maybe even more) per event in iCal on a Mac. I need to check a few things on my own iPhone before updating my ideas on troubleshooting this issue. Maybe the calendar file/database got corrupted, maybe it's a setting. I'll get back at it later today.
