    Ok am I missing something or does the Droid not have a notification for voice mails. I had two missed calls yesterday but nothing about any voice mails showed up. Good thing I checked because I actually had two.

    Yes has both a missed call and voice mail indicator. Will show up in your toolbar at the top.

    My indicator works fine but I would like to find a repeating notification and custom sound program. I have custom repeating sounds on all my other notification types but I can't seem to find anything for VM. Any ideas?

    I have a similar problem and posted about it yesterday. No VM notification in the tool bar, but I get a text from Verizon to check my VVM. But I don't have or want VVM.

    Gary: Check out missed call. Has repeating alerts for missed calls, SMS and other things. You can also set the sound for each type of alert.

    Voicemail sound notification has no timed intervals

    I have the same problem. I need the voicemail sound notification to keep sounding off every 2 minutes or so. The droid sounds off once and never again. Is there a way to set an timed interval? I added the missed calls app and it's wonderful but doesn't work for voicemail.

    I still haven't been able to find anything but I imagine it's just a matter of time before someone releases something. I came from a WM6 device and loved PocketMax Phone Alarm. It's extremely customizable. I put in a request for a Droid program but I have not heard back.

    We can only hope such an obvious overlook will be with 2.1 firmware

    Why does it take so long for the initial VM notification to pop up?

    Sometimes it takes an hour.

    The other day it took 5 hours! Really.
    I noticed a missed call after 1pm. No voice mail notification.
    Another missed call, no notifications. I keep my phone on silence because I'm on the phone for work all day (well almost all day) and it's just annoying to have that, IM at work, e-mail at work, people coming into my cubical, noise around me, etc... And I don't receive many phone calls I'm not that popular... :blush:
    During the day I'm checking my phone and have text messages coming up (mostly twitter...). But nothing for voice mail. I don't reconize the two phone numbers so I leave it alone.

    Finally after 6pm it says I have voice mail. I click on visual voice mail and says it's not done dowloading.
    shut off my phone.
    turn it on.
    Not done downloading.
    :mad:
    Finally 5 minutes after that it downloads.

    Is there something I need to do? A setting?
    I have received voice mail before and it's taken a while to come but not this long.

    The voicemail indicator looks like a cassette tape and if you have it set, the light will blink to whichever light you have it set to.

    Verizon notification of voice mail has been flaky for years. Long before I got my droid I sometimes found that my voice mail would show up two or three days after I received a call.

    I've never had a VM notification problem prior to this phone and I've been with Verizon for 6 years. My last phone would notify my within 1-2 mins of the missed call (obviously only if they left a message).
