Default need audible alert for coverage loss

Please Login to Remove!

I have done a lot of searching but have not seen an AUDIBLE alert for coverage (service/signal) loss. If I am in a location where I have lost signal and I am not looking at the phone I need to KNOW that I am not receiveing calls/emails etc. That way I can go outside the building that is preventing coverage to check for messages.

Has anyone seen a product that can sound an alarm after a period of time with no communication to the service? I find many that offer LED changes even colors for each umber of bars of signal strength but I don't want to have to remember to pull out my phone every 10 minutes all day long.

Hopefully it exists!

I've not seen anything like that. The only thing close is that some bluetooth headsets will give an audible alert when coverage is lost.

I've not heard of anything either, but it is an interesting idea.
