What is the difference between Calendar Reminders and the new AOL reminders?
The presentation and the way how you receive the Reminders are different. In calendar the Reminders are attached to single events, which are distributed over time - most likely over the entire year. In order to change them, you need to find the event in the year and make the changes right there. In Alerts & Reminders your Reminders are neatly listed in one place, easy to oversee and to manage.

You can send your calendar Reminders to either your AOL e-mail address, another e-mail address, or your mobile device. In Alerts & Reminders, you can send your Reminders as well to your AOL e-mail address and to your mobile device, but also to one of the most popular places - to IM. The setup of your mobile device is very easy here - all you need to know is your number and the name of your provider. The beauty of AOL Reminders is that they find you everywhere, because you can choose to be reminded in a cascade - an example would be: 'Find me on IM if I am online, otherwise send the reminder to my mobile device.'
