Default Is Notifire fully supported on the 8700

Please Login to Remove!

My need is actually pretty simple.

I would like to have my 8700 remind me if I have missed an SMS or voice mail. Notification of email is not important for me. I would like it to play a sound (not really a song) and then pause for a number of minutes, and then play the sound again, until I ack the SMS or voice mail.

I have been messing with message alert (web messanger) and it does pretty much what I want it to do, but I have 2 problems with it.
1. The default tones are way to soft, and I have not yet figured how to get louder ones loaded.
2. It does not obey the profile setting (if using vibrate, the recurring alert will play the tone AND vibrate). I found this out this AM at Church. Also, if I us the mute for xx minutes, or mute all, it does not seem to have any affect.

I started looking for a better solution and found Notifire. I have search thru the forum and dont really find much related to the 8700. Anyone know if it is fully supported? I downloaded the trial, and followed the directions to disable the BB defaults in the profiles, but I can not get any recurring alerts to work at all. It also seems to support the flashing red LED correctly either.

They're getting close, they have a global alert that will stay on the screen until you hit a button. If only someone will come out with a 3 to 5 minute continuos alert...
