Calendar Notification Does Not Turn On Screen

Calendar notifications sound the alarm, but the screen remains black. When i receive an sms, the screen briefly turns on to display the message - it seems to me that the calendar should do the same thing.
(In any case, that's what i'm used to from my palm, mumble-grumble! )

Is this normal behaviour, or have i accidentally set a dumb option somewhere? I've searched everywhere. Do i need a 3rd-party app, and if so, which one?

Htc Desire - Get Private Calendar Back / Set - Turn Off Alarm Per Appointment

Since my desire updated to froyo, i have a few issues with the calendar.
Before froyo, there were 3 types of calendar: calendar (didn't and still don't use it)
2. Htc sync (use it for the data i want to sync with my work calendar)
3. My calendar (calendar on the phone itself, used it for my private appointments and meetings i didn't want to get synced with my work calendar).

Now that last one has disappeared and i really miss it! Now my private meetings also show up in my work calendar.
Is there a way to get this private calendar back? Or is it possible to sync only in one way? I know it was possible with my nokia, so my work data appeared on my phone, but my private data didn't get pushed to my work calendar.

Another issue i encounter with the calendar app (not sure if it is typical froyo) is that every appointment has an alarm. Again on the nokia there was only an alarm if you explicitly entered one.
Is there a way to set or turn off the alarm per appointment?

Issue: Calendar Reminder Do Not Wake Up The Screen On Galaxy Nexus

I've noticed on my gn that calendar reminders do not wake my screen up (nor do i get a pulsating led light). Instead they only vibrate and play the notification sound. When i wake the screen i see the calendar icon in the top-left as usual. I have pop-up notifications checked in my calendar settings. Is this normal functionality or is something amiss?

I love that the epic doesn't put your new text front and center in a huge display on the screen. Woohoo. Privacy! But i don't like that it doesn't automatically turn the screen on. Is there a way to change this?

3g Turn Off When Phone Screen Is Locked - Samsung Galaxy Ace

I have a samsung galaxy ace. I have turned on 3g and it is working but as soon as my screen locks it goes off and i do not receive emails or whatsapp messages. When i pick up my phone and unlock the screen, the 3g symbol is not there but a few seconds later it appears and my emails and whatsapp messages come through. This is very annoying i want my 3g to be on all the time and emails and messages to come through immediately without me having to touch my phone. Can anyone help?

I have had the phone for 2 weeks and 3g was working fine until yesterday. I started using wifi for the first time yesterday at the office and i noticed this problem with the 3g yesterday evening. I definitely have my 3g turned on. As it works but only when the screen is unlocked.

Motorola Droid - Orientation - Accelerometer No Longer Changes Screen When Turn It From Horizontal To Vertical

Just got the droid today and for some reason the accelerometer no longer changes the screen when i turn it from horizontal to vertical. Now, if i have the keyboard open, it stays on horizontal mode, but once i close the keyboard it goes to the longer vertical mode. No matter how much i turn the phone around, as long as the keyboard is closed the screen stays vertical.

I have confirmed that the orientation setting is correct in my settings, and have even turned it on and off just to test.

Incredible Facebook Notification In Notification Bar / Takes To Web Address That Won't Open

I have the facebook app on my incredible, and it works fine as far as i can tell. However, when i get a facebook notification in the notification bar at the top of the screen, it takes me to a web address that won't open, every time. I've tried a battery pull just for fun, but no better. I have no idea why a battery pull would help, but i figured i could cross it off the list. (Came from a storm)

I'm left going through my "profile" on my app to the mobile site, and then i can get messages. Any ideas about having the notification link work to the page it's trying to render?

Enable Turn By Turn Navigation With Google Bicycle Directions

Is there a way to enable turn by turn navigation with google's bicycle directions? I finally mounted my defy to my handlebars last night and was disappointed that i could not get my bike route to show up in the navigation app. I could view my route in the map view, but the screen times out and i have to manually drag the map as i ride. This isn't the safest option, at all.

Samsung Turn By Turn Navigation

Currently i still have my original droid and love everything about it besides the keyboard, i thought i would use it but the virtual keyboard is great and it makes the phone too bulky and i rather have a slimmer phone without a keyboard. The main thing i like is the free turn by turn navigation, and so i wanted to know if the fascinate comes with free navigation? I looked everywhere but cant find anything.

Sorry for the long text, i just want a phone on december, i was looking at the droid x but it seems a little to big from what i have seen.

Activesync And Exchange Calendar

Having a bit of an issue trying to set up my wife's new vzw lg ally. It runs android 2. 1 for those that don't know. I am trying to get it to sync with an exchange accout. It works fine for email and contacts but won't sync at all with the exchange calendar. It says "sync error - sync is currently experiencing problems. It will be back shortly. " This message never goes away unless i turn off syncing the exchange calendar. Everthing else seems to sync fine regardless of this message.

I have tried to remove syncing the google calendar with no luck. I know i can use tounchdown since i am using it on my hacked tp2 android with the same exchange server, but really wan't to use the stock stuff. It seems like it should be an 'easy' fix since i am not having problems syncing contacts or emails. Btw - this is with an exchange 2003 sp2 server.

Any Way To Set Default Calendar

I've been using jorte, and like it, but i seem to have some across a deal-breaker. When entering an appointment from the phone, if you just click on "new event", key in the event, and press "done" it puts the event into "my calendar" by default. "My calendar" seems to be something stored only on the phone. It doesn't sync with google. To get the event into your google calendar you have to press "show details" and select the relevant calendar from the drop down list under "calendar. "The problem is

(A) it's very easy to forget to do this when quickly entering an appointment, meaning that your new event will be in the wrong calandar and will not sync;
(B) there is no way of going back into the event and telling which calendar it has been assigned to; and
(C) even if you realise that you've put the event in the wrong calendar there is no way of going back in and changing it to a different one. You just have to delete it (together with any details or repeat information) and start again from scratch.

This is driving me a bit mad, because i keep finding the odd event which is not coming up on my google calendar online for this reason, and i can't afford for this to happen, so i will need to drop jorte unless i can find a solution. Is my analysis above correct, or am i missing something? To solve this there needs to be a way of setting the calendar which new events get dumped to by default, and also a way of easily changing events from one calendar to another without deleting them.
