    #1 - Since I got the Iphone, I have missed a few appointments / events. Mostly, because I don't hear or miss the alerts.

    In previous phones (windows mobile), the phone would not stop alerting me (ring / vibrate) until I payed attention to it. Is it possible to make it like that?

    #2 - Some times, when I'm typing a msg, I would like to go back and change something in the middle of a word... example:

    "Do not use a geneWric title"

    I would like to use my finger and place the cursor right where the "W" is at "geneW|ric" and erase it. Instead I keep getting the cursor in the beginning or the end of the word, I don't know how to move it to the center of the word without erasing the whole word! :eek:

    Not too sure if the first one is possible, but to edit the middle of a word, simply tap and hold on the screen and then move the cursor to the position in the word that you would like to change. You should see a "magnified" version of the word to help move to the exact place.

    You can set more than 1 alarm for events, perhaps that might help you.

    Yes, I'm aware of that... but still, not enough help
