Here is my scenario. I have my itouch setup to sync with my gmail account. This includes e-mail, contacts, and calendar. I'm mostly worried about the calendar. Say it's 1pm. I setup an appointment on my laptop through gmail.com for 5pm (including a 10 minute warning). I don't use the itouch between 1pm and 5:30pm. At 5:30pm I hit the menu button and enter my passcode. No warning about my 5pm appointment. It never alerted me at 4:50pm like i asked. In the mean time I have been in an area where there is a wireless signal that I have connected to in the past. Is there anyway to setup the itouch to automatically check it or does it only update when i go into the calendar?
