    Hi there.
    I don't know about you, but I find it quite hard disabling the little alarm icon in the top left corner of my screen when it kicks in.
    Having Vaja case my finger is having even bigger difficulty pushing that corner everytime yellow ring appears. Taking out stylus is not a option if you are on the go.

    Can you share how do you go around this issue?
    Is there any 3rd party option which bring the alarm into center of the screen and in possible bigger/ icon?

    Thanks, Mike

    Doesn't pressing and holding the center button pop up the alert screen indicated by the little bell icon?

    Give that a press.

    Just hold down the center of the 5 way and it will launch your alert screen. No need to tap the small alarm icon.

    It does, but only if thats the first thing you do.

    If you do anything else, taking call, checking todo's or anything else,
    it goes to the corner. I can't see the alarm when backlight is turned off so I do wake i up by holding either Home key (moving to XLauncher) or the Green key to pick up / dial a call.

    I just thought there is a chance that reminder can be shown somewhere else on the screen.
    That very corner is simply difficult to press without the stylus.

    Pressing the center button on my 5-way brings up the alert screen anytime, even when I don't have any alerts...

    That's odd. Pressing the center screen when I am on my home page brings up the selected icon. Pressing it on the phone page does nothing.

    Hmmmm...seems that you have a defective unit or a 3rd party app interfering, because I just tested and it doesn't matter what app I'm in...native phone app, my launcher, Takephone, or anything else...holding the center button on the 5-way brings up the alerts screen, whether or not I have any alerts.

    She didn't mean "press", she meant "press and hold".
