What's curious is the information being presented on Android has already been acquired by Google so why is it not showing up on the iPhone side?

Keep in mind the iPhone app is behind the Android app.

iPhone Reminders Alarm Sync Issue

On all three devices I am using Exchange ActiveSync to sync Calendar and Tasks for my work email account. I have no issues with Calendar items. Items I create on any device are synced complete with correct reminder time. I created one task on each device with a reminder for 12PM. Items created on Android or PC have their reminders wrong on the iPhone but display correctly on the respective devices. All three devices have the same time zone settings. I checked my account and the time zone is also correct. So I am stumped. Have you experienced this issue?
