I like the badge icon as an unobstrusive type of a notification. The notification center I do not use at all. I went to "Settings -> Notifications -> In the notification center: Calendar" and adjusted: In the center: On Show: 5 Items Alert Style: None Badge App Icon: On View in Lock Screen: Off Than I created a calendar event for today with a reminder "5 minutes before". But no badge icon appears, when the time comes. When I change "Alert Style" to "Banner", the banner appears as expected. But no badge. My iOS version is 5.1.1 Do I overlook an option or is it true, that just a badge icon as notification (without any alert or alarm) for calendar events is impossible? If so, is there any tweak/cydia app which solves the task? Or is it possible with iOS 6? Thanks.
