    I use Google Calendar to keep track of things, that ultimately integrates with my calendar app on my iPhone, so no issues there. If I put it in on Google Calendar, it shows up on my phones calendar app, reminders and all that were set.

    My question or issue is this, I don't get a pop-up, e-mail or text until the timeframe I set them for prior to the appointment (1 hour, 10 minutes, one day, etc...) That's fine because that is how I enter it in Google Calendar or on the Calendar app itself. From what I recall, I somehow remember getting something (excuse my technical explanation) in my swipe screen that would be "pinned there" 24 hours or so in advance so whenever I swiped, I had a heads up what was going on tomorrow. Not a pop up, but an actual "event" that I could not clear, it would go away after the event occurred. Kind of like the weather at the top.

    How do I make that happen again? I can't seem to replicate it. Thanks!

    Do you mean in the notification center?

    If so...


    Turn show in Notification Center to ON

    Yes, it is on and it shows badges and alerts fine. What I would like to do is have that alert "pinned" there like 24 hours in advance so I can see today what is happening tomorrow without going to the calendar app. I swear I had some calendar entries that did that. That way, today I can see that at 9 am tomorrow I have a meeting somewhere instead of waiting for the reminder pop up/banner/alert an hour prior or whatever I set it to.

    Go to Settings> Mail, Contacts, Calendar.

    Scroll down to Calendar, Change default alert time to 1 day before.
