Missed call/message received alarm

  keverne 20:22 12 Nov 2007

I'm looking for a mobile that will give some sort of extra notification that a call has been missed or message received and not read.

This might be a flashing LED or an audible alarm of some sort.

I had an old Motorola that used to do this but I'm struggling to find something available today.

Any ideas please?

The Motorola L6 is fairly cheap and bleeps after a missed call.

..that's a start (though it does get a bit of a slagging in the reviews).

Any others?

As youtruth said, after a missed call/text most motorola's (newer ones) give an audible beep every 60 or 120 seconds (i cant remember which) .

Other than that, my old Samsung E710 has a very bright flashing white LED which flashes constantly until the text is read. A hugely usefull feature, and one of the only phones ive ever come across that do it.

OK, I'll have a closer look at the current Samsung and Motorola phones.

Thanks to both of you - much appreciated.

The new LG Viewty will alert you every 2,5 or 10 minutes of a missed text message. Think it will also tell you of missed call but not sussed that bit out yet

Very handy if your in bed

It can be turned off in the options! Actually a very useful option as if you dont hear a text message come through it can be hours later til you realise otherwise
