    Hello there. I'd like to know which one actually works for Motorola's Droid. I think it should've come standard with the phone, but it didn't. I really need a working app; the two I've installed (Missed Reminder and Missed Call) don't seem to work just as they're supposed to.

    I'm willing to pay for it if necessary. Can anyone help, please?

    Thanks in advance.

    Regards,
    Ace

    B.T.W., I didn't know how to put my phone type where it says:


    Device(s): Droid


    But that's obvious in this thread.

    What up Ace. Love your movies. Anyhow, so far the best one I found is Missed Call. Check it out.

    Missed Reminder works great, you must not be setting the settings correctly. What issues you having with missed reminder

    Yeah, I tried that and it would only remind me once of a lost call. I'm reinstalling and trying it again right this moment.

    I also don't like the double notification icon for text messages.

    Thanks.

    On my Droid it keeps on reminding me of a missed call, text or media message even after checking it and clearing out the notification.

    It would be so convenient if it indeed worked for my phone, but it doesn't. I've tried to set it up right as well as reinstalling it twice, but nothing worked.

    I'm willing to pay for a reminer that actually works on Droid, but I can't find one!!

    This should've come standard in the first place, like it does in many cheap phones.

    Thanks.

    Just reinstalled it and it wouldn't even remind me once of a missed call. That sucks.

    Maybe it only works in other models, not on Droid.

    Thanks, anyway, for your concern.

    what problems you having with Missed Reminder. I find it to work great. You may not be setting up the settings correctly

    Like I said, I can't turn the reminder off, even after clearing notification and checking what I missed. It just keeps reminding.

    Doesn't that happen to you too? If it doesn't, you might not own a Droid.

    I may not have a droid LOL. Yes I have a Droid and my reminder goes away as soon as check the missed whatever. I use missed reminder along with handcent (which had an update today) with no problems at all. Been using these two apps together with no problems

    Oh, it's a keyboard.

    I'm tired. I may reinstall Missed Reminder for the third time tomorrow. I seriously have tried my best to not mess it up, but it just keeps vibrating after checking whatever I missed...

    Thanks, thuough. :)
     
  13. i have missed call and it works perfect...you need to shut off notifications in SMS and for calls and all that for it to work properly...

    duh.

    "Shut off notifications in SMS and for calls"? Can you make that clearer to me, please? If you mean checking whatever I missed and clearing off the notification, I've done that.

    Missed Call actually only reminds me once that I've missed something, although it's supposed to do it every two minutes.

    I installed missed call to use for text reminder. I turned off the sms notification in the factory default text thing, then set this to remind me every 2 minutes. It doesn't remind me unless my screen is on. Like, I can have had the text for 10 minutes and after the first notification, it won't notify again until I put the button at the top to get the screen to come on, then it'll make the text sound again. It works as long as the screen is on. Anyone know what to do about this?

    I wish it reminded you of a missed call/message even with screen turned off.

    Ughhh...

    Then why haven't you added it to your User details? Click on user cp at the top of this window Edit details then under current devices is a little text box you may not easily see then type in your device.

    I can't believe this feature didn't come with the phone. I have an Eris but was just reading this thread for the fun of it.

    are you sure Android 2.0 doesn't come with this feature? my MT3G with android 1.6 notifies me of missed calls, text messages, and voicemails in the notification panel; all without the need of a 3rd party app.

    I find it hard to believe that they would have removed that feature in 2.0. maybe there's a setting that you just need to check.
     
  22. congrats, but yeah, obviously it does.
    this is to set custom LED colors, Vibrate patterns, reminders etc for each kind of notification.

    Yep. Luckily it came with a built-in speaker and mic to make phone calls. No need to downoload them from a third party. :eek:

    sorry if I misunderstood you guys, but the original post said:

    " Which is the best missed call, text and media message reminder for Droid?
    Hello there. I'd like to know which one actually works for Motorola's Droid. I think it should've come standard with the phone, but it didn't."

    That last sentence just led me to believe that the Droid didn't come with any sort of notification at all.
