    When I 1st bought my Touch, appointments would have the option of having a 2nd alert, which I liked. Now, I don't see that option. Anyone have an idea what happened to them? I liked them because I could have it remind me of an appointment a day ahead, for instance, and then 15 minutes before...

    Curiously, what rev is your software on it? On my 1G it's 1.1.5 and I do not have a 2nd Alert option and I THINK I upgraded the software just once from the original purchase back in April.

    That's odd. I have it on my iPod and phone... Have you already enabled the first alert? The second option doesn't pop up until you have the first one set.

    I sit corrected then. I DO have a 2nd alert option on both my 1G and 2G Touch's.

    I never used the alerts and only recently started using the calendar on both (synched to Outlook on my work PC) and never knew of a 2nd alert/reminder.

    I tried again and I cannot get the 2nd alert to come up. I have several appointment created and have alerts already but no 2nd alert option. I even created a new alert on the Touch and again, no 2nd alert...

    Not sure what the deal is... FYI, its a 2G touch version 2.2 (5G77a)...

    The calendar appointments drive me nuts. I sync with Yahoo calendar, and If I set an e-mail alert on Yahoo calendar, I wind up with two e-mails; one from Yahoo and one from iCal. It is very confusing!
