My iPhone 3G (NB: not 3GS) has the following alert times: None, 5 minutes before, 15 minutes before, 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hours, 1 day, 2 days and 'On date of event'. Is there any way of setting alerts to other times than these?

In Calendar on my Mac I can set alerts for any number of minutes, hours or days. The interesting thing is that after syncing with iTunes these are then correctly set in the phone. But I cannot find a way of setting such non-standard times directly on the phone itself.

Any help will be gratefully received.
