J1 Won't Repeat

I used to have a primitive LG flip phone. It broke. I wanted another simple flip phone. Bell wouldn't recognize it, so I bought the cheapest phone they would recognize, a Samsung Galaxy J1.
On my old flip phone if I received a text, I got an alert signal. If I didn't respond, it would alert again in a couple of minutes, and do so several times. It was a beautiful thing!
I can't seem to find a way to set that up on my J1. Can it be done? And if so, how do you do it? And if you can't do it, WTF good is it?

Thanks for any help.................Dave
