Default Needed: Long Alert Sound (or) Repeating Calendar Alerts

Please Login to Remove!

I really miss repeating calendar notification capability since I moved away from a windows mobile pda. I need my calendar notifications to 'alarm' me for about 5-10 minutes to make sure I acknowledge it.

I've read as much as I could find on this site and other sites about this. It appears no one has created something to repeat the calendar alerts. BBAlert has done everything else besides calendar alerts. It appears others would really like this feature as well.

If that isn't an option, then my second opportunity is to find a 'alarm' sound that is rather long (2-3 minutes). Then I could use that sound clip in my calender settings profies. The problem is I can't find anyone that created a more simplistic alarm or bell or chime sound that is that length. Most are just a couple seconds.

Can anyone find me, or create for me, an alarm sound that is 2 minutes in length? Idealy it would contain just a simple "ding-dong" like in WindowsMobile5. Then in that sound clip the ding would play about every 15 seconds with just 'air' in between.

Looking forward to any tips or help anyone could provide.

I see quite a few posts here about a program called "Blackberry Alerts" that does repeated notifications for emails, etc. I don't know if it works with the calendar or not, but search for the program and I'm sure you can find some info on it.

"BBAlerts" and "Blackberry Alerts" is the same thing. It doesn't do calendar. It appears no one has figured out how to do calendar.

I just made a 3 minute tada.wav file from XP if you want it PM me your email and I'll send it to you. Or if you have a specific sound you want to email me PM me and I'll give you my email addres so you can send it to me.
Of course it is in MP3 format

I just found a door bell ding dong sound and made it 3 minutes also.
