Question Little program to force SMS/VM reminders?

Please Login to Remove!

Until RIM does it, is there a program that will provide reminder "beeps" when you receive a text message? If don't hear the first notification, I may go half an hour before I happen to glance at my phone and see that one came in.

Know of any liittle program that does this?

Thanks!

I use Message Alerts from WebMessenger Inc.. It has a one time cost of $19.99. This program allows you to set customized alerts for emails, sms and calls.

I know it is not free but that was the only thing I found.

I actually just downloaded it, and it is great for reminders. I was having the exact same problem, and this does it. Thanks. As an FYI for anyone who gets it, you have to disable your profile or turn it off. Also, you have to set it up properly at the beginning. If you email the support, they are pretty helpful and quick to respond....at least during business hours.

In the profiles...there is a few different ones. Vibrate, Loud..etc. There is also an Off option.

why dont you just set up in your profile to have the LCD light flash only when you recieve sms n pins. This way any time you see the light flashing you know to check your BB.

I developed a simpler app that works for missed phone call repeat notification. The only options you basically need to setup is your profile sounds.
I'm going to be adding repeat SMS notification to it also, so look for that next week. I'll post a new message in the forum when it launches.

The problem is that it doesn't just keep flashing until you check it. It will flash for a few minutes then stop.
