I am sure there is a setting for this, but I cant find it. If I set an alert for a calendar app, the alert tone is very short. It is easy to miss in a noisy environment. Is there a way to extend the duration of the alert? Is there a way for the alert to sound every fem minutes until I dismiss it? If these feature are not available, is there a third part app to accomplish it?

Thanks for any help

Go into Sounds (in the Settings app), and select "Calendar Alerts." If you scroll down, there is the ability to put a ring tone onto the calendar alert. So, maybe make an alert out of a long (and LOUD) ringtone? It worked when I tested it with one of my ringtones...

As far as I know, there is no way to have the alert keep sounding until you get to it. All I know you can do is to set two alerts/reminders in the calendar app. Sorry.

Maybe some of this will help?
