    any body else like a beep when you miss a call? thats what I'm after.I was using missed reminder but it keeps my phone at 100% awake.not sure how good that is for my battery life.does everybody just check there phone alot to see if you missed a call? LED doesnt do me much good because you cant see it when its in the phone holder.it would be nice if it worked like the email or the text message does.

    Funny, I just intalled missed reminder yesterday and love it. After I saw your post about awake time, I checked my phone and it says the awake time is 93%. This is funny because even with that ridiculous awake time, my phone has been unplugged for 29 hours now. The battery is reading 8 %, but 29 hours is almost 3 times longer than it lasted my last 2 charges.

    see im not sure if the awake time means anything about the battery.it didnt seem like it was hurting my battery but reading other posts most people try to keep there awake time as low as possible.i do know if you use a task killer and kill missed reminder ,it wont work untill you turn it on again. it would be nice if it could be shut down and then if you get a call it would start up again to tell you that you missed a call. ever since i got the updates,it sure does seem like my battery lasts longer. wish the phone came with a little better instructions.

    I hear you on the instructions. You can go to HTC website and view the manual; someone had a URL that linked to it I think in one of the stickies. The awake thing confuses me as well. Everything I read here seems to suggest that awake time has an adverse affect on battery life (which would make sense). Seems like a great suggestion you have for the missed reminders app. Wonder if the developer could make it work like that??

    I would like this feature also. I used Missed Reminder for a bit, and it did the job, but I didn't like how it added an "extra" notification. So I'd miss a call, and have a regular notification that I missed it, and another notification from Missed Reminder. Granted, it went away after checking the call, but just the point of it being there was kind of annoying to me. Add to that the 100% awake time, and I ended up uninstalling it.

    Every phone I've ever used has had a reminder after missing calls/texts, so it boggles my mind that this awesome phone does not :(

    the only way it will notify you is by the LED flashing,that is a little lame!

    This is consistant with the Moto Droid, right? Just wondering if this is something we could expect when the phone upgrades OS.

    I read this thread yesterday and decided to try out Missed Reminder.

    I have it set for:
    Start/Stop Service on
    Autostart on
    Notification Icon on (the Red (!) circle on the notification bar)
    Missed Calls only (I never send text messages, why type, you have a PHONE! :)
    Popup off
    Vibrate off
    Ringtone vector
    Blink led off (don't need it because the HTC missed notification will blink the trackball light. If you want the led to blink, you can select any color, but it will always blink Green)
    Notification intervals 5m
    Number of repeats forever

    When you first turn on the phone, it will sleep normally. But, after you get your first missed alert, it then stays awake until you task close the program or restart your phone. You can stop/start the service, but it still stays awake. If you task close the program, that closes the program and turns the service off and you won't get any new alerts. But, you can turn the service back on, the phone goes back to awake and it functions again when you get your next missed call. You can view your Notification bar and select either the HTC missed call notice (1 step, because that will automatically clear the Missed Reminder Red (!) circle or you can select the Missed Reminder Red (!) and then view your missed calls (2 steps). Either way will reset the Missed Reminder Red (!) alert. However, from that point on, after you get your first alert, the phone stays awake all the time. However, it's been 12 hours since I turned off the wifi and mobile network and went to bed until now. I just let the phone sit all night and until now, no playing with the phone during that 12 hours, and the battery has only dropped from 84% to 76%. So, it doesn't look like awake time automatically means huge battery drain. Awake 16:49:30 99% Battery=76% This is the only progam I have installed that seems to keep the phone awake all night.

    However, I'm not concerned about 99% awake time anymore.

    Since I've double checked this while typing this up, the phone is at Awake 17:34:09 99% Battery=73%

    I think it's easier to just leave the phone awake instead of playing with killing and restarting the service.

    i have since found out the same thing. when you say task close,what do you mean by that??

    If you use say Advanced Task Killer and you close Missed Reminder, that will close the program and Stop the service. The phone will sleep again, but you won't get any alerts. If you open the program and start the service again, the phone won't sleep, but you can get new alerts.

    Imagine how much time you'd get out of the battery if it was working properly.

    Do you have your mobile network turned off?

    I had Missed Reminder. My phone stayed on 100% Awake time. I uninstalled. I'd much rather not even know I have a missed call than get 3 hour battery life because that app is broken.

    Yes, when I go to bed, I turn off wifi and mobile network (since I'm home, it's almost always on wifi). I always keep GPS on. I always charge the phone about 8pm to 10pm and take it off the charger and play a little more, then turn off wifi and mobile network when I go to bed. I don't use phone for email or text. I've only had it about 2 weeks and just play with it a few hours a day listening to music for a few hours with tunewiki shoutcast (that eats the battery), weather, webbrowser 20 mins. Why? I don't know, I have pretty decent speakers on the desktop to use instead, hehe.

    I'll charge the phone right now to 100%, turn it off and on, make sure it sleeps, then call it so I get a missed call remember, wait 5 mins and clear it. I'll try to keep track of what I do today with it and report back later.

    I still don't think the 99% wake time means huge battery drain. Like I said, overnight with wifi off/mobile network off/gps on, the wake time was 99% and the battery didn't go down much in 12 hours.

    99% awake time means your battery is lasting WAY less than it could be.

    With average use, it should be about 25%.

    If it's working for you, that's fine. But it could be better

    What you are saying makes sense; but I tested 2 full charged batteries, one day using missed reminders and one day with it uninstalled, and the battery life was very similar (between 30 and 32 hours). That said, I still haven't reinstalled missed reminder because the awake times freaks me out. It baffles me why the reminder system on the phone sucks so bad.

    We simply should not have to add on all these applications to correct such issues. There are flaws in the operating system that need to be corrected! Hopefully version 2.0 will correct most of these issues. There are many other issues that need corrected as well. I just purchased my HTC Eris a few days ago and I have already discovered several issues. Even the unlock swipe needs to be changed to a Horizontal swipe instead of a vertical swipe. Also the Menu key should not open up the home screen once the power on button has been depressed.

    So again there many issues that need to be addressed my friends!
