Question about Palm Zire 72 Handheld

Error Message - "Unsupported Repeat Pattern"

I have a recurring appointment setup in Outlook 2003 with a repeat pattern of "first weekday of every month". When I synch to my Zire72, the following shows up in the HotSynch Log: "The repeating appointment titled Run Financial Reports beginning 04/01/2005 07:00:00 AM cannot be converted for use on the Handheld. Please edit the appointment in Outlook and re-synchronize (unsupported repeat pattern)." ==================== I understand the error message, but am at a lost to comprehend why such a simple repeat pattern is _not_ supported. Anyone know of any workarounds?

I think the message means what it says. You will have to setup these events manually as individuals to get this event to synch. The message is literally telling you that this repitition style is supported by Outlook but not by the Calendar in your handheld. Another way to go might be to use Chapura PocketMirror conduits instead. It may be more forgiving and be able to deal with this event type. This will cost you however to find out.

LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync

I have a lot of problems with the calender. when I first got the phone, a week or two ago, I put my work houres in it, and the whole week, no alarm. then weekend came and a small icon above of a small calender appeared, and the whole weekend it kept on going off 5 times in a row at 7.30, the time I needed to leave for work in the week, when it didnt went off at all O_o today, I had to leave at 8.30 and it went off at 8.30 but also at 7.30 again, while that's not an alarm in my calendar for today.. after work my cookie suddenly went out, I had to take the battery pack out to "reboot" it, now the calender icon is gone, I wonder if it will go off at 8.30 tomorow like planned or if it won't go off at all anymore again..
Another thing I noticed is, that when I put in a date from one houre to another is that it doesn't state the correct houre (when I put in 8.00 to 16.00 it shows 00.00 to 16.00) I put in until I open the actual appointement.
strangely enough, my cookie just lighted up it's screen as if I touched it out of itself and even more strange, the calendar icon up there is back..!

LG KP500 Cookie bugs - Calendar Alarms and Sync

I wouldnt recomend this phone at all! Have had it 4 months now and had so many probs including:
1. Sometimes the alarm comes up but doesnt make a sound or vibrate so obviously i sleep right through it
2. It will randomly turn itself off
3. At least once a day when someone texts me ill get the same text two or three times. I'd blame their phones but its not just one person!
4. It randomly was diverting all my calls at one point although id never set it to do that.
5. The sensors dont work right. WHen you go on the internet if you turn the phone to one side the screen also turns. Ill be holding mine the right way up but the screen will still turn, it needs a lot of shaking to correct itself.
6. I cant move anything about on my screen. I had a few speed dials up but got sick of accidentally ringing them, they wont move anywhere on my screen so i cant put them away. However it lets me drag other speed dials onto the screen (but not back again so my screen is packed with speed dial boxes!)
Do not buy this phone!!
