    Default New to Android. Have a few questions.

    One of The questions I've been trying to find an answer to is if there is something special I have to do in order to get push notifications or notifications at all from my calender ? I have a awful memory so I rely heavily on my calender which gives me no type of notice. Question 2 is if anyone is the galaxy s5 s view wireless charging case and pad, if it's worth the price, where to buy, and if the pad comes separate, and last if anyone has any tips to optimize the phone itself that would be great. Aside from sports apps I don't really have much down loaded. Thank you all in advanced.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you using Google Calendar or the Samsung Calendar on your phone? Using Google Calendar, you can select an event, edit it, and edit the Reminder. This can be either as a Notification or as an Email.

    Currently I am just using the calender that came preloaded with the phone. If I download the Google calender will I be able to get a notification ? Thank you for the fast reply.

    On the Samsung calendar app, I would guess that you can still do the same thing. What do you see if you select an event in the Samsung calendar, and edit it? Does it give you an option to select a reminder?

    Been a while since I used Samsung stock apps, but if you download Google calendar, it will give you a notification.
    The Samsung calendar can create events for the Google calendar, but you have to change that every time ( I can't remember how, I am sorry). I used to have both the Samsung calendar and Google calendar. I would enter info in Google, and read it on Samsung (I liked the interface on Samsung better ). After a while I just gave up on the Samsung calendar and acclimated myself to Googles.

    I just went ahead and downloaded the Google calender. It has the option for a reminder on the stock calender but not once since I had the phone did I actually receive a reminder or notification when the time came. Thank you both. Hopefully this works

    Did you test it to make sure you get them?

    That's odd because on the stock calendar I get reminders when I add a reminder. Did you change any settings somewhere for notifications?

    Try going to the calendar. Menu button. Settings. Set alerts and notifications. Check status bar notification. See if that helps.
