Ring tones - no visual messages to determine which app is ringing

    I'm still familiarizing myself with the Casio Commando C811.

    Under Settings > Sounds I've set the default notification and the phoneringtone.

    While at home the cell phone is normally connected to the Internet via WiFi as the towers are too far away and blocked by hills.

    I sometimes receive text messages via the Internet and e-mails, both with a ringtone and a visual notification. I don't normally have any problems picking up phone messages, text messages or e-mails.

    However every once in a while I here the default ringtone when I haven't received any phone, text or e-mail messages.

    I'm uncertain which app is producing the ringtone as I'm not able to find a visual notification.

    After looking at the apps again I think it may have been my google e-mail on the Commando initiating the default ringtone.

    I recently installed a few apps that connect to my PC that allows one to see what going on with a cell phone from a PC.

    Desktop Notifications

    I'm still testing them out. Desktop notification notifies my PC with a pop message when a text message or mail arrives to my phone.

    My older phones, (many Motorola), could not run apps like we have today, normally came with a PC program that allowed for direct access to a cell phone. I remember being able to configure many things at different programming levels on a phone

    Desktop Notifications doesn't require my cell phone to be connected via USB. As long as my PC and cell phone have an internet Wifi connection the phone is synced with the Firefox or Chrome "Desktop Notifications" add-on.

    I'm still experimenting with the other apps but will get around to determine they're capabilities.

    AirDroid ( IIRC, this app also has a desktop notification that can be enabled and disabled)
    * The AirDroid appp has a very anoying pop up message and sound from a PC for it's free versionl I haven't been able to turn off, so it appears one would need to have the paid version installed to make any use of AirDroid)

    Another thing I noticed when my cell phone isn't connected to the PC usb port and I'm online with my PC's web browser I'm able to install cellular apps from my PC's web browser to my cell phone over the Internet.
