    My old "STUPID" flip-phone was very good in notifying me when I missed a call, or a text-message. It would beep every minute or so.

    This "SMART" phone is only notifying me once. If I missed this ONE ORIGINAL AUDIBLE notification, it won't be reminding me again. Motorola says I can't set my phone to repeatedly notifying me, but I can purchase an app... I find this unbelievable, after all this is a SMART phone, no? Maybe not as smart as it claims to be?

    I refuse to spend money on such BASIC feature. Is there a FREE APP FOR A REPEATING SOUND NOTIFICATION?

    ...Thank.

    Thanks, Zomno, I actually DL "GO SMS Pro" prior to reading your post, but this one, Missed Call Reminder is a LOT better, does the job, simple and clean, w/o all the playful bells and whistles that GSMSP was shoving down my throat (I deleted it 5 minutes after installing it and going thru all its settings).....

    Still, it's really disappointing (and almost shocking) that such a basic feature is not offered as part of the basics by Android.... Especially when my old flip phone was doing it by default....

    The notification light flashes. I mean why would you want to be bothered with a sound all the time?

    ...Because I elect so.... Do you keep your phone in front of your eyes, staring at it all day?... I keep my phone is in my pocket, or on the desk, away from me, or on the night stand next to my bed. When a friend or family member is texting me, they're expecting me to read and respond right away. I don't get text messages frequent enough to be bothering me.

    It will also .....vibrate :) . Mine is in my pocket most of the time. It vibrates, I look at it. I'm sure there are apps that will do what you want. Open the Play Store and do a search for "notifications" or things like that. [Redacted by staff. Please remain courteous to one another.]

    Try "Ringtone Sound Effects" and see if that does what you want. They list "looping sounds".

    You missed my earlier posts here (there aren't too many...). I did create this very thread, asking, and I did get some advice and I resolve it before you posted your first post here, it's called Missed Call Reminder which does the job...

    I still think a "SMART" phone is supposed to have this feature as part of its operating system, this is basic (my older flip phone had that feature!), one doesn't have to search and D/L an app for that... Lucky I didn't have to PAY for it....

    I'm not sure I understand you.... I posted a question, I was complaining about my phone sounding only once when I missed a call, or a text message. I was asking what app I should get to enable repeated audible notification, a feature I consider a very basic to anybody using a cell phone. Zomnomnombie was here to assist, offering a solution. I D/L the app he suggested, I found it useful, and I came back here thanking for his advice.

    I think that concluded the discussion, I resolved the issue, though I made a comment that I'd expect a "smart" phone to offer a feature that was a default in all my old flip phones.
