    basically if you have hidden calendars or calendars that aren't selected in your iphone (esp if it syncs to icalendars or gmail) any event will show up anyway on the notification screen. not sure if this is the best idea? i hide them for a reason.

    If you're a developer, you should be reporting this to Apple in the dev center, not broadcasting it on public forums.

    wow. thanks for the reprimand mate. i wasn't familiar so i apologize.

    i saw other posts in this forum regarding issues with ios5 beta 3 and figured this post wouldn't be out of place.

    No problem, it's just annoying when people who have access to the beta post bugs in a forum when there's a private developer area where Apple will get the bug report right away.

    I'm sorry for not understanding, but why do you have events in a hidden calendar that you don't want to see? That's a real mystery to me, why wouldn't you just delete them or delete that calendar from syncing? :confused:

    hi. that's a completely legitimate question and i definitely can understand why it would be confusing.

    basically i have certain events on my work calendar that i have on my iphone. lots of hourly verifications. these only happen every 4 day or so basically in between those days, i don't want all those events populating my notification calendar (i can't even remove them or turn them off, even if i disable event reminders, etc). i wouldn't have to hide the calendar if they didn't show up on my on my notification but i thought that would have been the most logical method (which doesn't work).

    it would be nice if there was an option to have specific calendars in the notifications instead of having them all.

    Actually he should do both, so:

    -Apple is made aware

    -Everyone here is made aware in case they have private calendars.

    Why does every iOS5 thread have to have an "iOS beta distribution police officer".

    the same reason why iOS 5 threads exist in the first place, people have the "right" to post whatever they want

    not everything is life comes with a cherry on top

    No not really people can post whatever they want as long as it is within the forum rules. Posts which serve no purpose and only clog up the forums and are in general a waste of time are against the forum rules.

    Don't useless threads work the same as useless posts?

    And who's opinion are we using to determine if it's useless?
