    Just had a quick question about Calendar Events.

    When you set, lets say a Birthday on the Calendar and set it as an "All day Event" & set the alert to "On date of event" what time does it notify you at?

    Should I expect to get an alert tonight at 12am stating "Birthday!!!" or will it notify me at a decent hour? lol

    (yes I know I can change it from an all day event and set it for later in the day but that's not my question)

    Thanks!

    EDIT: 08.14.08
    For those who don't know ; The iPhone woke me up at 12am letting me know it was someone's birthday today. Pissed me off a little but I was expecting it. Even though I have sync'd with my iCal (Osx) and had set in the options that my work day starts @ 8am.

    This little problem will hopefully be addressed sometime in the future. Until then it's best to not set an alert "On date of event" but as a specific time. *sometime after you're usual wake up time*

    Unless of course someone has a fix for this.

    I think it reminds you at whatever time you have set at "Start of Work day" be it 8am, 9am, etc.

    Clever... Anyone test?

    Is there a way to get it to notify you at the event time? Rather than 5 min before?

    Where do you set this on the iPhone?

    in my experience it goes off at midnight ... which i find pretty annoying..
    this might be for every event time, or it might only be for "all day long", i don't remember, cause i don't use that alarm setting anymore.
