**If you haven't already, here is more information on how to opt in to the Google program.

If you've opted in to the Google ONID program, you have the ability to create a calendar using their online application. If you sync a calendar with your mobile device, you can receive notifications and alerts that you've created in your calendar on your device.

Make sure you have no conflicting iCal, Exchange? or Outlook calendars with which to synchronize. iPhone Calendar can only sync with one calendaring source.
