    Searched for an answer to this high and low. I have the HTC Incredible running Sense. Just recently upgraded to Froyo, however this issue was present before that. I'm having trouble with Calendar Reminder Settings maintaining settings for individual calendars. I have a work calendar synced with exchange and a personal calendar through gcal. I want to set it so that I don't get notifications for my work events (those come up on my computer, i just want them on my phone so i can check my schedule when i'm away from my desk), but do get notifications for my personal events.

    This looks like it is possible. I go into calendar menu settings, Uncheck "all calendars". Then click on "apply settings to" for the different calendars and change the "alert,notification bar,off" reminder settings for each. Seems pretty straight forward that it's supposed to work that way, but it doesn't. It is not maintaining the changes. It simply sets them all to the setting of
    whichever alert setting I selected last. Thoughts?

    I'm glad someone else has the same problem. I'm in exactly the same situation. I don't want my work calender events going off but do want my personal reminders to be alerted. I just switched to Android from Windows mobile. The calender and tasks applications are a big disappointment.

    Yes, I have the exact same issue.

    I have my work calendar which i don't want notifications for and i have my personal calendar which i do want notifications for.

    So in Calendar settings -> Reminder settings -> Apply settings to
    i select 'work calendar' and Set alerts & notifications = Off
    i select 'personal calendar' and Set alerts & notifications = Alert

    However, i then get Alerts for both 'work calendar' and 'personal calendar'.

    You can deal with this by disabling all notifications in your default calendar and then use a different calendar app which supports notifications internally, for example gemini calendar.

    Then only add the calendars to your gemini configuration for which you want to be notified. Of course you'll continue to use your old calendar app to view all of your calendars.

    I am having this same problem and it is driving me crazy! I also haven't found an answer anywhere else other than here. Is there any way to get around this problem without downloading a separate app? I'm hesitant to download a new app every time there's a problem.

    I just want to get alerts for important things like doctors appointments (google calendar) but NOT get alerts telling me one of my coworkers is working from home today (exchange calendar)... Anyone have any ideas?
