    The only thing I dont like about the phone is there is no physical message indicator on the outside of the phone

    Does anyone know if there is a simple app that makes the phone beep at a set interval when you have a message/missed call that hasent been viewed yet?

    Most messaging apps allow you to set an LED notification. Does your phone not allow you to do this? I'm not sure if an app is available to beep at a set interval.

    Install Handcent.

    Under Notifications it offers:-

    Notification sound

    Notification icon

    Show unread count


    Blink LED

    Colour of LED

    LED flash frequency

    Enable reminders

    Number of reminders

    Screen on for reminders

    Special reminder sound

    Light trackball
    (if you have one).

    I'm sure some of those features will meet your requirements.

    Hope this helps. :D

    thats the problem, my phone dosent have a led. So I want an app just to make a noise every 5 minutes or so if I have a new message that I missed because I was away from the phone or something

    So Special reminder sound in my Handcent list doesn't suit you then? :thinking:

    Ironass, I have been through all the menus and can't find the features you listed. Can you point me to Special Reminder Sound and Light Trackball please? Thanks.

    Not quite "all the menus" I would guess.

    Handcent > Menu > Settings > Notification settings > Notification settings (again)

    The menu starts with Test notification and continues on down.

    Hope this helps. :D

    I got this to work fine on missed Msg's but I can't find out a way to make it work for missed calls? Is that not possible or am I missing it? Thanks Jeff
