Default audible notification that voicemail message is waiting?

Please Login to Remove!

Anyone know how to set up an audible notification that a voicemail message is waiting? I've looked in Profiles--am running Phone Only--and don't see a way to set notification options that a voicemail message is waiting--or for that matter, that I've missed a call, which would also be nice. I get the on-screen notifications, but why can't I set up an audio notification?

Welcome to the BBforums.

If you allow the message list to log the missed calls, you will get audible alerts. See the Phone screen > options > Call logging.

That won't do it for Voicemail.

What JSanders said applies to the initial notification you receive - the one you get as the messages alerting you to a voicemail or missed call arrives in your messages folder.

If you're looking for an audible notification that will repeat periodically until you take some action, the BB won't do that without additional software.

If that's what you're looking for, take a look for BBAlerts and/or Message Alerts by Web Messenger. (sorry I don't have links)
