    Text Notification

    Hello all,

    I was just wondering is there any way to have a repeating notification of a text msg on my phone. It would be nice just because sometimes Ill get a text and not read it until two hours later because I dont hear it the first time.

    Thanks

    btw This forum rocks

    Welcome to the forum! Glad you found us.

    There is no way that I'm aware of to get a repeating notification w/ the stock messaging app. There are some replacement messaging apps out there that are quite good (e.g., Handcent, Chomp, Go SMS). I know for certain that Handcent has a "reminder" feature for unread messages. I presume (but don't know for sure) that the others do, as well.

    I use Go SMS and it's got a huge notifications settings menu. I was just looking at the settings you can set it to LED notify, Window pop-up notify, task bar notify, sounds notify, etc. I'm not seeing a "sound" notification that will periodically ring until you check your msg, but like I said, it's quite an extensive settings menu so you might give it a try to see if it works for you.
    Just a note.....you have to make sure and turn off the stock SMS notifications for GoSMS to work properly.
    Good luck and let us know what you end up finding/using.

    Same deal w/ any replacement messaging app that you install. Otherwise, you'll get double notifications.

    Go Sms does have a reminder option, it is under menu/notifications/default notification settings.

    Great app btw.....I really like the new widget as well.

    Messaging is still working, you have just told it not to notify you, if you open it you will still see all of your txts in there. You can just uninstall Go and turn on notifications back on msging app if you ever want to return.

    Which launcher are you on? Touchwiz, ADW, LauncherPro. This will determine how you get it to the bottom.

    On touchwiz, the stock launcher, go to the app screen, menu, edit, hold icon and drag to spot on bottom bar and release.
