    Treo 700p

    I create a calendar event
    New -> 2:00pm -> Test
    Details -> Alarm checked, 0 Minutes -> OK

    I have verified
    Sound Toggle ON
    Options -> Sound Preferances -> Application: Calendar
    Volume: 5
    Vibrate: Always
    Alarm Sound: Treo

    The alarm will light up the screen. It wont make a noise, nor will it vibrate. This is a BRAND NEW 700p (I just had my first 700p replaced for this plus bluetooth issues). I have hotsynched with my old profile (Only common link between the two 700ps with this same problem).

    Help please!

    Hard reset, delete all data, and try it again - BEFORE you restore your data via hotsync...does it work then?

    Hi.

    I just found this thread because my new 700p was doing (or not doing) the same thing. I tried the hard reset and then calendar alarms would vibrate. Unfortunately, after I restore my data with a hotsync, it's back to not vibrating!!! Call vibrate fine as do text messages.

    How do I fix this? I have over 10 years of data in the thing (started on a Pilot 500 in 1997), so I can't start from scratch.

    Thanks much!

    try a hard reset and only hotsync the calendar data. Do not sync any programs, other PIM data or anything else from your backup profile.

    If that still works, bring the other PIM data. If that still works, install programs one at a time until you find the one that killed the vibrate/sounds.

    Here's the standard method for syncing only your PIM data to your Palm device:

    1. Rename your desktop /Palm/*username*/Backup directory (where *username* is some variation of your Hotsync ID) to, say, Backup.old

    2. Hard reset your Treo

    3. Hotsync

    Thanks. Could I do the same thing by changing the conduit settings in Hotsync->Custom?

    No, because unless the Backup directory is renamed (or deleted), all of your 3rd party software will be restored to the freshly hard reset Treo.

    So much fun... The vibrating alarms worked with all my data, but no backup dir.

    Then I added all the games - still good.

    ... graffiti anywhere - good

    ... datebk6 - still good. Or maybe not! After I installed it, vibrating alarms worked. Then I ran datebk6 and set an alarm and the vibrating alarms didn't work! When I went back and set an alarm in the old calendar app, it worked again. So, it seems that alarms set within datebk6 won't vibrate.

    Can anyone else verify this? Anyone else run into this? Any fix? I'm running the latest version of datebk6 - just downloaded yesterday.

    Please help - I can't possible go back to the Palm calendar program after years with datebk.

    Thanks,

    David

    Got it! I searched the Pimlico site and found this:

    Vibrating/flashing alarms supported on OS4/5 devices

    DateBk6 handles the Vibrating and Flashing Alarms itself in conjunction with the standard alarm manager, and not with the new Attention Manager of V-4.0 (which is incompatible with all Prior OS releases). Since it is not possible to support both the Alarm Manager and the Attention manager at the same time (there is not enough space in the first 64k segment), at this time, only the Alarm Manager is used and DateBk6 operates the Flashing LED and vibrating alarms at the same time the normal audible alarms would be generated. So don't expect the operation of DateBk6 to be identical to the manner in which the built-in datebook application handles alarms under OS 4.0. In particular, the option to handle vibrating/flashing alarms is in DateBk6's Alarm Preferences - the system preference setting is ignored (this allows these alarm settings to be included in saved views and easily turned on and off).


    I went into the datebk prefs and set it to let the system control alerts and now it all works!

    Thanks for the help,

    David
