Can't stop Outlook.com from setting reminders on appointments?

My experience and research indicates that if I try to use Outlook.com (Hotmail) to sync desktop Outlook (2013) calendar with Windows Phone (8.1) calendar, create an appointment in desktop with reminder set to "none", Outlook.com will reset it to whatever value the default is set to at Outlook.com. And there is no "none" default. So every appointment synced to phone will cause an alarm to go off on the phone.

Is this true? Or am I missing a setting somewhere?

I looked at the reminder options for my calendar. "start time" was the least amount of time that I saw. Didn't see "no reminder". but if it doesn't work, guess it doesn't matter. I know that it was reported almost 2 years ago.

Too bad about the various "bugs" that MS doesn't seem to care about.

Thanks for response.

curiously, entering a calendar item on desktop, with "no reminder" becomes a "start time" reminder when it gets to phone, But, entering a calendar item on phone, with "no reminder" remains "no reminder" when it gets to desktop.

so, the change in reminders only happens in one direction.

Onedrive>calendar>options>'default reminders for newly created events'>'add a reminder' seems to be set for 15 min. I don't know if this influences device reminders or is only for email reminders (which is not checked). I don't see any other place to set default reminders.
