Maybe somebody can help me so I don't have to do a hard reset (the only other alternative I see at this point).

I recently ran into some problems often referred to as phantom or orphaned alarms. Essentially, if I set alarms within the clock settting or via the calendar function, they would begin to sound off and never prompt me for dismissal. I was able to use memmaid to clean out these phantoms from my notification queue, but now I don't receive any notifications anymore. If there is something like an event notification, my phone will turn on, but not make any sound nor vibrate.

Short of hard resetting (and having to restore everything), is there anything I can do to reset the calendar/notification function? I've searched around on the forum and have found limited conclusive information about this problem, beyond the immediate fix of erasing entries from the notification queue.
