As for calendar I have always used the Google offering. Create appointments on the PC and then get reminders on the phone. You can change the notification sound within the app
open calendar, click the three line hamburger, scroll to bottom and select settings, then general and untick standard tone. Follow on screen instructions to select a new tone. Zedge is a good source of notifications.
