How Does One Set the Default Calendar In iOS 5?

Just used Siri to set an appointment in my calendar, however, I have multiple calendars, and Siri scheduled it in the wrong one. I know how to set the default calendar on my Mac. Is there a way to do it on the iPhone?

    On the iPhone, go to the Settings app.
    Go to the Mail, Contacts, Calendars settings.
    Scroll pretty far down the list to the Calendars section.
    One of the items there is the Default Calendar.
    Tap that and pick a calendar.

    That's really helpful, and brilliantly clear. I should have worked out from the scroll bar that there were more items to look at down there.

    Now, is there a way to save all your different settings the way you could with Profiles on the Symbian OS? When I'm on an overnight camping trip and need to save power, it's a big pain to have to turn off 3GS, Location Services, Siri, push notifications, etc., etc., one at a time.

    Gary, thank you for the solution! This has been nagging me, and caused a few missed appointments. Cheers from Littleton, CO!
