Hello kageyfna. Welcome to Android Forums. You might try logging into your Google account and accessing the calendar app. It will allow you to set a weekly, monthly, and yearly reminders. Once you have that set up, it should sync with your Google calendar app on your new phone. I hope this helps.
Let me know what new phone you have. I'd like to move your thread into it's discussion area. It's there that all the other members that own your phone can be found. The information being exchanged there should prove interesting and informative to you.
Again, welcome aboard.
