    When you set an audible reminder for an appointment in the Calendar, the available sounds just play once, and very briefly. If you're not near your Droid, you are likely to miss the reminder. Is there any way to make the sound you choose "auto-repeat" until you turn it off? That way, you'll eventually hear it even if you are not near your Droid when it initially sounds off. Am I missing something in how the alarms work? Is there a third party application in the Market that people have found useful for this exact purpose? Thanks for your help in advance.

    I had the same problem, but with SMS messages.. one beep simply isn't enough.

    Luckily, we're not the only ones.. there's an app for this, it is called Missed Call.

    Name is misleading, but it allows you to set the alerts to repeat (every 2 min for me) for Calendar appts, txts, calls, BT, apps, battery life, etc.. pretty sweet.

    This really should be a standard feature in the OS in my opinion. Most of the phones I have used in the past have always offered similar functionality.

    Android has a way to go, but I still love this phone like crazy. I hate using an app and wasting more memory/power for such a standard feature, though.

    Hm, maybe I've got the wrong 'Missed Call' - I can't seem to choose sounds other than alert sounds, and can't get them to repeat every 2 mins - who is the developer?

    Nope, not for calendars

    Confirmed. As of 0.90 RC5, Missed Calls doesn't allow you to set any calendar audio function, neither the ringtone nor the ringtone repeat.

    Seems like it would be handy for calls, though.
