    (already posted in the Galaxy S section but maybe another apps can answer my needs)

    Hi guys,

    Seems that I have a problem with some meeting reminders. Maybe I am doing something wrong.

    I synchronized my Outlook calendars with my Gmail calendar, then I sync my gmail calendar to my Galaxy S. It all worked fine.
    My problem is that if I compare my galaxy S to previous phones i owned, there is a difference that bothers me:

    On my previous phones, there was a reminder about 15 minutes before the meeting starts (this is defined through Outlook). The reminder used to popup on the screens of my previous phones, with a ringtone that would play for 15 seconds (more or less), then stop, and then replay every 5 minutes (I believe) until I took actions for this reminder.
    On my GS, there is a very brief tone 15 minutes before the meeting, and there is no popup reminder on the main screen, only in the notification area. Haven't tried yet the snooze feature on the GS, but the main thing is that I would like to have a longer alert AND a notification on the screen, notification that should be visible until I decide to dismiss it or snooze it.
    Any clue?

    Up! I assume I am not the first one who misses the "repeated" alarm? Isn't there an app that can help with this?
