    I want to set a date/time for a reminder. I have set acalendar event alert but you only get a little beep. Is there something that will go off like an alarm notifying you of the event until you cancel the alarm? The problem with a small beep is I may not here it. Thanks

    Set an alarm in the Clock app. The only problem is you can't really specify the date. Works fine though if you set it the week of the event then have it repeat on "monday" or whatever the event is. Then delete it when you don't need it anymore.

    Seems a bit OTT. I tried Todo Lite but you don't get an alarm

    This seems to be along the lines but again you only get one beep. http://www.powerybase.com/notifyme.aspx

    Looking at the Alarm app again it has everything you need apart from a date. It has label functionality to remind you of what the event is.

    You could set up Google Calendar to send you an SMS reminder for any events you have in your calendar. If you're worried about SMS fees, install TextFree Lite or Unlimited and have the alerts get emailed to the email address connected with your account.

    Edit to add: If it's a recurring alarm, like a weekly appointment, you might look at the Alarm section of Clock.app. Those alarms keep on ringing until you dismiss them, and you can choose the sound you want your iphone to make to alert you...

    I'm in the UK so TextFree doesn't work.

    I like the Alarm app but you cannot set a date.
