Custom? Are you referring to iCal? On iPhone the only options for repeat event are:
Non, Every Day, Every Week, Every 2 Weeks, Every Month, Every Year.

After reading the OP title carefuly, I see it was meant from the phone,in which case it is limited. If that is the only way you have to set up an event it makes it tough. But you could set it up in ical if one had it and sync to the phone.

yeah, i'm doing it from the phone.

plus i'm also on windows so no ical for me... :(

unless a windows ical compliant program like mozilla's sunbird can then be imported?

I was excited when nemussync hit the app store because it allows you to sync google calendars with your iPhone over the air.

Unfortunately google calendars doesn't even have this level of sophistication so we windows users are still stuck out.

editorial:
This is precisely the kind of thing that makes me dislike Apple. They remove necessary functionality for the sake of simplicity. Function follows form.

If you use outlook you can set up weekly, monthly, and yearly reminders and even use different reminder times for events. When you set them up in outlook and sync they will be recognized on the iPhone.

Thanks Christian. J, the app looks great and it is featured by Apple. But maybe because I am new to App Store, I feel it's a little too expensive for me.

Last post was August 12, 2008.
Funny not only is it your first post, but the app was just released today... The same say you joined/posted.
Developer?
Yeah, that guy was just pimping his app (which he copied from me). Anyway I'm about to do the same thing. My app adds all the repeat and alert functionality that you need. And it works with the native Calendar app, so you don't have to have a separate calendar. And it doesn't cost six bucks! (It's $0.99).

I haven't seen the other guy's link yet. If you had read our developer policy, you would have already known what I just had to explain to you. Lose the sarcasm, too. Thanks.
