    Hello. I am having a problem with the default reminder in my calendar. when I create a new entry and save it with no reminders, a 10 minute reminder is automatically attached to the event. I have tried several calendars on Google play. business calendar and acalendar for example. this makes me think it's on my phone's default calendar, the one that is being used to sync. I did find settings for default reminders, but I have them all off. I'm not sure what else to do. help please and thank you.

    Try clearing data and cache from the calendar app.

    Hi guys. Thanks for the responses. I tried your suggestion in an number of variations and sequences to try to get the reminder to stop popping up. I was not successful.
    I've tried: (clearing = clearing cache ; AC = android calendar ; BC = Business Calendar)
    clearing AC - setting default reminder to none - clearing BC
    clearing BC - clearing AC - setting default reminder to none
    uninstalling BC - clearing AC - setting default reminder to none - installing BC
    uninstalling BC - clearing AC - disabling AC - enabling AC - setting default reminder to none - installing BC
    Please note that Business Calendar's default setting is for no reminder. I've also made sure there are no other calendar's installed. The issue is very easy to replicate. I create a test event in BC, wait 20 or 25 seconds (if i go in before that the reminder isn't there yet), and the reminder is there. Always set to 10 minutes. If you have any other suggestions, I'm all ears, and again thank you for your other responses and your attempts to help.

    I agree with your assessment. Try this:
    Log into your Google account from a PC or Mac, go to Calendar.
    Go into your settings, navigate to calendars, click on the name of your calendar, then reminders and notifications.
    Remove all reminders.

    Let us know if this works.

    GENIUS! That worked. Thank you so much, I would have never found that and it was driving me crazy.
