    I traded my Blackberry for an iPhone 5. I use my new iPhone 5 with MS Exchange. On my iPhone 5, when a colleague emails me a calendar invitation, my iPhone 5 makes the same tone as when there is calender reminder alert. I do not want any tone just because i receive a calendar invitation in my inbox, I do want the tone for the calender reminder alert. Also for some more background.. I have selected the option so I do not reveive any notification alert if I receive an email. What setting combination gets me to calendar invitation in my inbox = no notification on my iPhone and a tone ONLY for the calender reminder alert?

    To see if I understand what you've already done, you have gone to Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendar > Calendars > New Invitation Alerts > OFF ?

    Fixed thanks...I was worried it was some Apple/Outlook quirk and I was going to be screwed. Do you happen to know how to make it disappear on the phone when snoozed on the desktop and then reappear on the iphone at the new alert time?

    Sorry, no. I don't use those types of things. My Calendar is all local.

    Glad I was able to help with original request, however. :)
