    Hi there,

    I've been loving my HTC Desire since the day I got it, but have one question about an annoying little thing that the phone does. Basically, whenever I get any notification like an email or text, the notification sound goes off as it should. However, if I decide not to look at the email or text, the sound will go off every minute until I read the message. Do any of you guys know if there is a way to stop this?

    Thanks for any help.

    Oh sorry, not stocks (like money). I'm still not sure exactly what you mean by stock apps, but I do use the mail and message app.

    Surely after 14 days he would have switched it on & off!!

    perhaps a soft reset might help??

    Turned it on and off many times. Sometimes removing the battery.

    Soft reset in phones is doing a battery pull.

    Which is odd because in the IT world a soft reset is rebooting the computer using software (eg start>shutdown in windows)

    A Hard reset in phones is a factory reset. You DONT need to do this for this problem


    A Hard reset in IT is removing the power source. Physically shutting down

    It should be the same for phones but its not.
