    I'm a WM user and I'm used to seeing my upcoming appointments on my home screen.

    Is there a way for iCal to show a count on the icon like mail or SMS? Or is there a way to show the next 1 or 2 appointments on the home screen/lock screen?

    Is the only way to see the next appt is to go into ical itself?

    Thanks in advance.

    No.

    No.

    Yes.

    The only way to do what you're asking is to Jailbreak the phone and install either Intelliscreen or iToday. And AFAIK neither shows a badge on the iCal icon.

    No

    though there are apps available via installer/cydia but you need to jail break first

    Wow, that sucks. Thanks guys. But this is a big downer for me. Oh well. I still like it better overall compared to my WM phones.

    If you use Exchange I think new meeting invites get a badge icon on iCal, but other than that, nothing.
