    Another "Basic Question" Thread

    1- At work I leave my phone on my desk. I don't know if I get a text message, phone call, or email unless I check. On my old phone (LG Voyager) I would have a message (I don't recall the detail) that there was a missed message or call. How can I set the Droid up for this? Maybe there is an alarm alert that repeats but obviouly it doesn't repeat rapidly enough to solve the problem.
    2- When the Droid goes to "sleep" I have to press the on/off button to have the screen come on then sweep the unlock to use the Droid. Doesn't this seem redundant to have to unlock the phone twice? This is really annoying.

    Thanks!

    (1) you have to check the notifiaction bar. On my BB it blinked red until I checked it and cleared the message. The Droid doesn't do that. I am trying to find an app for that. That will change the notifiactaion style.

    (2) I have to do the same thing. I would like to be able to just touch the screen to wake it up. It works atleast. Sometimes waking my Storm up was a battry pull

    These are pretty basic problems, especially the wake up issue.
    I'm surprised that I haven't seen others complaining about this.
    Is there a place to find "fix" apps (like for the above or for app fixers likethe presumed to come camera focus?
    It would be great to have a separate area or category for this.

    I agree. I haven't been checking my messages because I forget. Since there is no notification like other phones do, I tend to not check. When I do hear the notification and I check, I see that there may be one or two that I missed while I was a way from the phone.
    Once every sort of mental process has ceased, not a particle of karma is formed.

    If it's an App it would be in that section. I haven't found anything to help the notifiactions yet.

    The camera issue is going to be a fix via the OTA update due on Dec. 11th. I'm sure when or if that update is available. We will post an announcement for everyone.

    I noticed on my Droid that there is a small green blinking light just above the upper right-hand corner of the screen that indicates I have a voice mail or text. I presume this probably applies to all types of message. Have someone text or call you but do not answer and wait a few seconds for it to start blinking.

    Well I guess these issues annoy more people than I thought.
    I assume that Motorola monitors forums like these or maybe there is a way to communicate such basic everyday every use issues like these.

    "Missed call" can control the led lights and vibrations. Problem is...they are having issues with the calendar part right now. It is free. I bet there are other apps that will nag you if needed.

    I cant remember how my Iphone did things (brief time with it). Did I touch the screen or a button and then swipe....similar situation as this one though and it did not have any led. There are also apps out there to remind you of missed calls, texts etc. They can be set to follow up after a certain amount of time. I think that the app like Missed call will work well when they get the calendar part fixed. You can change led color as well.
