    When setting alerts for a calender entry the setting for the first and second alerts get flipped. IE i set the alert for 1 hour and the second alert for 30 minutes, the alert becomes 30 and the second alter becomes 1 hour.

    Reboot your iPhone and see if that helps. I just set a test event and my alerts are listed exactly as I set them.

    I've never seen that on mine. Were the alerts set in the Calendar, or shared from someone else's Calendar?

    Those are also my thoughts. It's not a big deal, it's a simple workaround. Maybe there will be some improvements to the calendar on IOS 8.

    This may sound silly, and not the problem. But I did discover the time zone was off in my Calendar.
    Maybe that could be why the alerts flip, for some of us.

    The next question I have is a time zone problem.
    My location is eastern standard time.
    This is getting to be a PITA, because my calendar time zone keeps jumping to GMT.
    Now that's fine, but I have an alert set for 2:15pm.
    Yet it says the alert is set 4 hours prior to that.
    Can somebody explain what may be going on please? Thanks.
