    I have a couple of questions about Calendar alerts:

    1. On my old Palm PDA, I could get an alert 5 minutes before the event, and then the alert repeats every 5 minutes 3 times before it stops, which was helpful. On the iPhone if the first alert occurs 5 minutes prior, I don't see any way for me to get additional alerts after that, since there is no option to set an alert at the same time as the event, or to just repeat. Is there a way to do this?

    2. Is there a way to set a default for the alerts? I want an alert 5 minutes before the event for every item I add in my calendar, but it's very tedious to have to set that for each item individually. In my old PDA or in Outlook, I can have the alert turned on by default and I want to do the same on my iPhone.

    Thanks for any suggestions!
