I have a Nokia Lumia 920. I need a calendar with an alarm function to remind me of my appointments. Reminders such as SMS/Email don't work for me. Have tried several calendar apps, but none of them have an alarm (sound). They only have reminders. HELP!


The built in calendar has the ability to set reminders for appointments with sound notifications (that's what I use on my Lumia 920).

Just do the following:

  • Open the calendar
  • Hit the "+" button
  • Enter your details, then scroll down and hit "More details"
  • Then set the "Reminder" to whenever you'd like to be reminded.

In order to make sure your phone is set to play sounds for Reminders, do the following:

  • Open up settings, then go to ringtones + sounds
  • Tick the box "Play a sound for Reminders"
  • The problem is that this does a global alarm - I wan't to specify which appointments make a sound, e.g. like the Alarm, that overrides the silent setting on the phone. (I've just upgraded to Windows Phone 8.1, but still can't see anything). – PeterX Nov 3 '14 at 1:50
