Get a reminder to place a call

You may need a reminder to call someone, do something, or text somebody special during an evening when you’re preoccupied with something else. Nights can be busy and frantic, with new events happening spontaneously, so plan a little ahead. Reminders can come in several ways on your Centro smartphone, but the great thing is that they always come to you.

Calendar reminders

In Calendar, select the day and time for the evening’s activities. Select Details. Check the Alarm box and adjust the minutes before the alert. Select OK. If you need to be discreet, give the alert an unobtrusive title, like, Feed the fish, so when it flashes on the screen, whomever you’re out with won’t concern themselves.

What if they call?
