    I use Google Voice for all SMS notifications. I use the Gmail application for my email.

    Does anyone know of an application that will vibrate my phone at a certain interval, e.g., every 2 minutes, until I actually open my phone and acknowledge that I've received the notification?

    I would LOVE THIS! I used to have a phone that did this and it came in handy. I find that my Incredible's vibrations are a little light, and I often miss important texts when it's on vibrate.

    Thanks!

    I want the same app! Even my lame nokia 5800 has an app for this... it can be set to beep. Even the old moto razors give you a beep every minute if you miss a call!

    SMS popup will do it. You can set reminder frequency up to and including continuous and then set how long between each reminder.

    You can also make the vibe much longer with that program. Those 2 little vibes don't cut it. Only downside with this configuration is I liked using the status bar notification instead b/c checking those directly opens the GV app. So I had to deal with multiple notifications for the same thing which bugged me or disable the status bar notifications and manually open the GV app afterward. Just a thought.

    is there some sort of missed call/missed text reminder that will keep trying to alert you that you missed something?

    Thanks!

    I need something like this too, I am really discourage by the lack of notification options and apps available for Android...guess I kinda got spoiled on Blackberry, but no looking back now, I have confidence things will improve.

    "Missed Call", free from the market will do continued notifications for missed calls. I use it in conjunction with SMS popup.

    SMS Popup works great, but the problem is that it doesn't work directly with Google Voice's app.

    I'd use the default SMS app, but then I run into two problems: it doesn't support Google Voice's visual voicemail feature and it shows Google Voice contacts as weird numbers.

    Is there anything can can use the Google Voice app and also do this?

    And Gmail notifier is great, but now I realized that the app needs a limit to "X" number of repeat notifications feature. If I get an email in the middle of the night, that would be terrible. SMS Popup has this, but again, doesn't integrate with Google Voice.

    What would really be great is if there was an application that just repeated notifications. That's all. So the apps themselves, like Google Voice, Gmail, etc. would send the initial, and then the other app would just allow you to set repeat notifications and set how many until it stops. That seems like it would make the most sense.

    I have a Setting Profiles rule and profile that turns off sound and vibration when the phone is plugged into power during sleep hours -- solves that problem :D

    Missed Reminder from the market does it for me! Repeats reminders until I look at the text, missed call, etc. Lots of opetions in preferences -- vibrate, ringtone, color of LED etc. I like it very much!

    I'm looking for the same thing. I have an LG Ally and am looking for something to remind me at intervels to check my phone when I miss a call. I've tried Missed Calls, Missed Reminders and now Easy Reminder and it doesn't seem to be working. Any suggestions as to what I may be doing wrong?
