SMS reminder setup

However if you are using CalenGoo you can use pop-up reminders instead, which have the advantage that they can be snoozed and repeated.

Or you can use the free CalenGooSMS app to let CalenGoo send you SMS reminders. However to save SMS reminders into events you have to sync CalenGoo directly with Google Calendar instead of syncing via Android.
