How to Block Calls with Google Voice the correct way.
Wednesday 20th of January 2010
This tutorial is for those that want the blocked call message to come up for your Verizon number and your Google Voice number. This is from my own trial and error testing. I don’t know if any of these steps is not needed, but I will give all the steps that I used to get it to work. If you have anything to add, please do. I will be using the PC to change most settings on Google Voice, because I find it to be the best way. If possible have another phone you can test this with. To lessen confusion, and keep from having to repeat words over and over, here is a list of words and description of their use. 1)Block call message = Tone..Tone…Tone….Were sorry you have reached a number that has been disconnected or is no longer in service. If you feel you have reached this recording in error, please check the number and try your call again. 2)Verizon Number = Your main number, not your Google Voice number. 3)Google Voice number = google voice number. Do it this way. Do I know why it works this way? No. Does it work this way? Yes, and as long as its working that’s a
repeating alert tones
Wednesday 22nd of August 2012
Maybe my brain is not what it used to be... Isn't there a setting that determines how often an audible notice for a missed call, email, text message, voice mail, etc. should repeat? If I miss the initial alert, I would like the phone to continue to alert me until I take a look. Too many times I've missed a call and/or have a voicemail message, but didn't hear the original alert tone due to noise, being away from the phone, etc. and then not realizing that I had a mesage until I picked up the phone for some other reason and noticed the blinking light. I'm almost sure there used to be a way to configure the alert tone to repeat at certain intervals, but I can't seem to find it now. (I'm on ICS .215)

Text message tone repeat?
Saturday 09th of October 2010
I have had my Desire for just over a month now and still haven't worked out how to get the text message alert to repeat. I have my phone on silent/vibrate when I'm at work, and I have sometimes found that a text comes in while I'm away from my desk and I don't discover this until later. Or even when I've got the sound switched on I don't always notice it if I'm in a noisy environment, or maybe I don't feel the vibration in my pocket. My previous phones have always produced the alert tone/vibration every few minutes until I read the message. Can this be done with the Desire, and how?
Would like repeating notification sound, any help?
Friday 17th of June 2011
On my old BB I was able to install an app that would generate a sound or ring tone every 3-4 minutes when I had a missed call or new voice mail/message in addition tot he notification light. Anybody know where I might find a simular app for my HTC Thunderbolt. Just looking at my phone does not work for me, I want the sound to repeat until I open the call or message. Thanks in advance
Notification tones are repeating?
Thursday 12th of August 2010
OK, it appears that when I get an e-mail notification tone and I don't read the message right away, it seems to repeat the tone periodically (every few minutes or so). Is there any setting so that it does not repeat? I'm not finding one... TIA...
APPS to simulate pager and beeper?
Saturday 03rd of August 2013
Hello Everyone, I am looking for an app which when receiving an SMS will act like a beeper or pager and make a repetitive sound or prolonged sound . I am a physician and I have installed a VOIP in my office which will send me both a text message and an email if the matter is urgent . However, if I happen to miss the single notification sound of an incoming message, I could miss an urgent situation. Moreover , if I am sleeping , I would like a notification sound which would wake me up . I would also like it to call back periodically until I someone how acknowledge that I got the message. Maybe I would be required to press a "dismiss button' or else the notification tone would continue to repeat. Finally, I would like the app to specifically recognize the source of the sms , ie my VOIP system , so that every sms I receive does set off the urgency notification sound . I have looked I the App store under pages and beepers but it is unclear to me if the apps I looked at have this capability . Does anyone know if such an app exists? Thanks for your help.

Is there a way to make an audio tone for a notification repeat? I get a tone when the message comes in but after that it is just the upper left LED blinking. I would like to hear a tone every once in a while when there is a message waiting.
