    Using calendar>settings>select ringtones, there is a full page of ringtones, with the default "On time" selected.

    The default is too quiet, but when I select a different default and click OK, it always reverts to "On time".

    Has anyone figured out how to actually change the default tone?

    It's a bug or shortcoming. One way around it is to download an app called Calendar Event Reminder. Works great.

    Thanks, I might do that.

    I figured out the problem, though. I had downloaded some tones using Zedge, which appear in the tones list. Unfortunately, Samsung won't let them be selected.

    I can change tones to any of Samsung's, but none that I downloaded.

    Will Calendar Event Reminder allow me to do that?

    maybe use a file manager like Astro to move the downloaded files from the Zedge folder to your "Notifications" folder?

    They're already in the notifications folder, but they can't be used. I just confirmed this with Samsung customer support.

    I downloaded Calendar Event Reminder as suggested and it does just what I want. Odd that Samsung will let you download and use other phone ringtones, but not notification tones for the calendar.

    I agree. I tried for days with no avail and then I found Calendar Event Reminder. Works like it is supposed to. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to change their calendar notification.

    so how does that work? Does it just change the notification sound?

    do you still get the cool lock screen notification?

    Does this application only change the notification sound or it also have a repeat reminder in case you are a little far from the phone????

    Thanks in advance...

    Calendar Event Reminder seems to let you do almost anything; it's very configurable. Check it out on Google Play.

    Is the Calender Event Reminder Free? I see one for 2.19. I am not into spending money on apps. Thanks,

    The app is one of my fav. apps. I swear by it, it also has a nagging alarm which comes in handy for me. :)

    It seems funny that people will spend $200 for a phone and $80 a month, but won't spend a couple of dollars for a good app. I wonder if they work for free?

    Just download and install the "calendar snooze" app. It will fix the problem for free.

    Calendar Event Reminder Seems to work. It is not a stand alone app. It works with other calender apps. I have business calendar loaded as well. I don't know if I erase Business Calendar if it would work with the S3 calender app or not. The S3 app is still showing the default ring tone.

    The CER app doesn't work anymore after the recent Android "up"dates. Scroll its page down to user reviews, many are reporting the same regression as everywhere in Android and its apps since 1 or 2 years: the good apps that used to work reliably, now don't anymore; they fail once in 3 occasions, they don't behave as expected, in short, you can't rely on them. So each time you give 1 EUR to these self-appointed "developers" (don't laugh please), you just encourage the general downgrade and regression.
