    Calendar

    I'd like to use a particular color for an recurring appointment. So when I look at the month view I can see the such as red color that indicates a specific appointment. Is there any way to do that?

    There is no way to delete all entries from phone. What you can do is open DM, go to back up/restore> advanced then clear calendar events from there.

    They are saved in my the contacts under the birthday field. Everything was transferred from my 8330. It worked perfectly fine on the Curve.

    hmm that's interesting. there is no option on the storm to accomplish that. you have to add them to your calander as reoccurring(if in fact you want them to be reoccurring) and set a reminder to them.

    I beleive if you set up an example to just verify this... Create and appt and then choose recurring, I beleive it will carry over everything with.
