That is normal. The pull down notification shade does not work from the lock screen.
Notifications are shown separately in the lock screen and can be enabled/ disabled in the notification settings.

yes, i dont want the pull down one, i mean that i cannot see the nc at all in the lockscreen. I think it's a bug btw. I've tryed to send an sms to me, and to wait for it with the phone locked. What I got isnt the notify in the lockscreen nc, but only the new big popup with the program icon to slide for reply. After I slide it and the box for reply appear (i'm using bitesms from the lockscreen), the notify appear in the lockscreen notification center too (i can see it throught the popup). But I cannot see the calendar at all there, only in the "push down" version.
Probably it's a bug? I've noticed that the language in the slide change from mine (italian) to english when I've to slide for reply... many fix to do in these days...

notifications on the lockscreen are only visible when you receive a notification while in LS mode, as per notification. meaning you will not see past notifications
OP, being jailbroken while on the new OS is garunteed to run into issues. keep searching
i am diligently looking for a JB tweak that will allow the NC to be activated while in LS mode

That is normal. That is all you get. You do not get calendar appointments in the lock screen. The lock screen only shows NOTIFICATION ALERTS for new emails, SMS, etc. It doesn't display general info like calendar appointments. Only the pull down does. I hope that makes sense.

Also the swipe down once past the lock screen displays all notifications including calendar. However I have set the option to show 5 calendar appointments, but I only ever get 1 displayed.
There must be a bug on the lock screen calendar notifications.

I am receiving NO EMAILS in the notification center, even though all the appropriate buttons are pushed and boxes are checked in Settings. The emails arrive in my inbox but I never get notification in the notification center, lock screen or elsewhere. Reminders, for some reason, I do get in the NC. Appreciate any help.

I've already had 1 all day event for today and that didnt show. Just added another 4 events for 1 hour each that didnt overlap on the start time all with a 15 minute alert. Not one of them was displayed in the lock screen. They showed on the swipe down notifications tab. But why the lock screen option so it must be possible to show them on the lock screen.
Can anyone confirm they have calendar appointment notifications showing on the lock screen.

I think you all are really confused.
For calendar the "view in lock screen" setting means that new invitations and/or reminder alerts for upcoming events will show on the lock screen. It does NOT mean that your day's schedule will be displayed on the lock screen.
When you turn on "notification center" for calendar, that controls whether your upcoming day's events are shown in the swipe-down notification center.

Example event reminder notification in the lock screen:

Certainly I can expect to receive notifications of emails in the lockscreen, right? This is what is not working for me, even with all the right settings. I've rebooted several times, went back into Settings and turned notification/view in lockscreen to OFF, rebooted, turned notification/view in lockscreen back ON; no luck. I have gotten a reminder on the lockscreen, just no email notifications. Would appreciate the collective expertise of the forum for some help.

I make no claims about your email issue - I was referring to the mass confusion where people are expecting their schedule to show up on the lock screen.
As for the emails - If I turn on Settings->Notifications->Mail->View in Lock Screen to "ON" - I get a notification when a new email comes in. I have two email accounts set up - both are exchange - one for work and one Gmail.
BTW, you need to have your email accounts set to Push or check on some schedule. If they are set to check manually, then no new mail would come in while your phone is locked.

Email notifications on lockscreen not happening. Settings all correct; push on. ??
Well, 'push' did not solve the problem. I'm getting reminders, texts, notifications of 'Words with Friends'; no emails notifications showing up. I've sent myself an email from another account and had a friend send me one as well. They immediately showed up in my inbox (checked on my laptop); I'm just not getting any notice of their having arrived on the lockscreen. Any other ideas appreciated.

How long did you wait? Sometimes it can take a min or two (even though it's supposed to push immediately).
1) When you get to your home screen is there a red badge on your mail icon showing the new emails, or do they not actually show up in your inbox on the phone until you open it?
2) Are you sure you're using an email account that supports Push? You need to have an exchange account, yahoo, or mobile me for push to work.

1. Well, it's been three hours since I sent the email and no, it's not yet arrived on the lockscreen [it did arrive in my inbox, though].
2. Sometimes I see the red badge and sometimes I have to open the app. For this last test email, I did not see the red badge.
3. Yes, I'm sure that the mail arrived before I unlock the phone. I could hear it on my laptop.
4. It IS an exchange account: it's Outlook Web App.
5. I have 'push' on, but it must not be working, b/c I hear the mail arrive on my laptop, but I have to open the mail app to find it on my phone.
I've read every article on the web about this, it seems, without finding a solution. I've double and
triple checked my settings: those, I'm positive, are where they're supposed to be.
