    tap on the first line. Although, you should see a plus sign at the top-right too.

    Wow, this blows... Why do I not have a plus signal?

    I just did a hard reset and no dice.

    Have you enabled iCloud, and the reminders option in that?

    That will auto-create a "Reminders" reminder list. It may be that you haven't got any lists to add an entry to.

    Location

    For some reason when I set a reminder for a location, its shows Home as some other contact along with the current location. HOW DO I delete the Home address within the reminder location?

    That screen is a pick-list of locations, the one set for that reminder is the one with the tick on the right-hand side.

    "Home" is one of the fixed reference locations, which you will have picked from Contacts the first time you played with the Reminders app.

    Location - RESOLVED

    Ok I found the fix. Under Settings->Mail,Contacts,Calendars scroll down to Contacts and set the My Info to the contact (in my case my name with Home address) you want.

    This now shows the Home location in Reminders with that info!!!


    YIPPIE!!!!

    to me, reminders does nothing calendar doesn't already do.

    so to answer your question, you can set reoccurring reminders in calendar.....


    I honestly see no benefit of reminders, maybe after reading up on it / seeing more reviews i will... :confused:

    Not that I can see. And not on iCloud either. Guess you just set a recurring calendar event.

    I don't have the option to set a location for my reminders... only a time, priority and notes. Is location an iPhone 4 and 4s function only? I have a 3Gs.

    Found the answer to my own question in the manual: http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iphone_user_guide.pdf

    Darn that sucks.
