Android :: Best Missed Call - Text And Media Message Reminder For Droid
Nov 21, 2009
I'd like to know which one actually works for Motorola's Droid. I think it should've come standard with the phone, but it didn't. I really need a working app; the two I've installed (Missed Reminder and Missed Call) don't seem to work just as they're supposed to.
Mostly loving my Desire, but there are a number of minor annoyances. A major one is that if you miss a call or text, you get the notification icon and the flashing led, but other phones have had an audible reminder every few minutes that you had missed something.
Missed Call - LED notification for missed calls.Thanks to Android_Goes for his efforts however I (or at least my wife) wants thye same facility as she had on her previous phone which is a regular beep to remind her of a miss SMS or call.The flashing light is not so useful in a handbag or pocket.She travels on her job and regularly appointments are cancelled by SMS or by a call. She doesn't have nor wants hands free so she sometimes misses the calls.Is anyone able to point me at an app which beeps after a missed SMS and call?
Got my android yesterday havent really played with it other than installing app killer, and checking to see if i could root(i cant :sadface and noticed on my mothers phone(same droid eris) that her notification light was blinking Green. i Checked the manual from the verizon website and all it mentions is green solid, red solid, and red blinking, nothing about Green blinking. It was not plugged in, it was not being used. I thought it was perhaps saying "hey you have a new message/email/missed call" but she had no notifications. anyone know what Blinking green means?
Can anyone recommend a widget that shows the number of missed calls / text messages / emails? I would prefer something that is text only.If not, does anyone know a widget that can display text from a file on the SD card? I could probably figure out how to use Tasker to generate the text file if needed.
I want recurring sound notifications when I miss calls or texts because the LED alone isn't enough. I got Missed Reminder which does what I need but it's keeping my Sprint Hero awake (80-90% up time when running, 10-20% when not). Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way I can prevent this or is there another app I can use?
Ive got a Samsung Galaxy S. I wanted an app which shows an sms as a popup so i downloaded SMS Popup and I have disabled the reminder as I also wanted a reminder for missed calls, so I downloaded Missed Reminder. I have setup reminder for both calls and sms. However I have noticed a few problems. After I receive an SMS if I click 'Close' or 'Reply' in the SMS Popup window, the notification of the sms in the notification bar closes, however I still get reminders from the Missed Reminder. This is also the case with missed calls. If i slide down the notification bar and click 'Clear', I still get reminders (vibration and beep) of the missed call. Does anyone else notice this with this combination of apps?
I rooted last weekend. After every missed call I keep getting a text message that says: If I call the second number (408-970-0000) (always the same) - it says "Our records indicate that you are calling from a SMS voice message equipped handset. If you have recently purchased a handset that does not contain this feature press 1, otherwise press 2." How can I make this stop?
I need pop-up notifications of missed voice calls and SMS text messages. The pop-up should remain on the screen until dismissed/acknowledged. If the screen times out, I would like the message to reappear after I log in to the phone. Generally I can't get my phone out quickly enough to see the original message. I can't tell whether I've missed a call or a text message, so I have to check both. I find the missed call format especially unfriendly. I'm using Calendar Event Reminder and loving it. It would be great to find soemthing that works similarly for calls and text messages.
I must have installed some app or selected some option. About 5 minutes after missing a text message the phone produces an very annoying sound. I hope that when I install a new notification app or setting that this annoyance will go away.
I have searched my HTC Incredible up and down but I can't find the option to set how often it rings to let you know that you have a missed call or text. Right now me phone only rings once. This is the most basic feature and there has to be a way to change but I can't find it for the life of me. Even my old razor let me set it to ring every 5 minutes or so for missed calls. I can hook my phone into my pc and stream internet off it but for the life of me I can't figure this out!
I'm using an app called EAR that allows you to make different sound profiles for your phone sort of like how a Blackberry does meaning, I have a profile I put the phone on when I'm home and out and about that has rings for phone calls and all notifications (SMS, MMS, etc). Now I also have a profile that puts everything on vibrate for instances such as in a meeting or somewhere where I don't want my phone ringing and causing attention. I just found an app called Missed Reminder which is pretty good.
I have it set to vibrate and ring every couple minutes if I have a missed call or MMS (I don't use the missed SMS part because Handcent does this, but I did test it and both will work if you have them both active). My question is this, if I use EAR to put my phone on vibrate profile will it quiet the reminder rings from Missed reminder? I have no way of testing this on my own as my cell phone is my only phone in the house. Can someone that is running these apps test it out and let me know. I have a feeling that EAR will not overwrite the Missed reminder settings
Apps like "missed reminders" are great for doing multiple alerts every X number of minutes if you don't hear the first one. They work on missed calls, gmail, and sms but is there any app that can monitor alerts from other apps like twitter (touiteur) K9 email, facebook which don't do "notifications" after the initial alert. So if that's not heard you don't know till you glance at the screen. Anyone aware of a 3rd party app that does for twitter and facebook alerts what missed reminders does for SMS?
Does anyone know if I need a special app to be reminded of calls/texts that I've missed? I've had this feature on Motorola phones and on Samsung.
Ideally, if I miss a call and/or text, I would like to be reminded every n minutes either by vibrate or by ringtone (whichever's activated) until I acknowledge the missed call/text.
I don't know how people live without this. I've had a Nkia for 18 months and I got tired of having to look at the screen of the phone every time I finished taking a walk(could never feel vibrates while walking) taking a shower (they're not waterproof yet), etc.
I accidentally sent a text message to a caller today when I was already on another call. That's a cool feature and I'd like to use it, but I'm not sure how it happened?
I found the option to change my outgoing text message under my settings, but now I just need to know how to use the feature. I tried it a few different ways with my son calling me while I was on another call, but I ended up dumping him into voicemail instead of sending the text message.
On my previous phone it had a "full lock" feature on it that when a text message or phone call came in it would show all stars on the screen and require my password before you could answer the call or view the text message does the hero have that option or is there an app I can download?
I tried the pattern lock thing it has but if a call comes through or a text message comes through it still allows you to answer and/or view the message without entering the lock pattern..
I am new to the Droid, I was wondering I have moved music to the droid ( from Verizon ) from my computer, and just put them under the memory card, the songs are saved in the area of music, I can listen to the songs, just don't know how to make a specific song or ringtone as a text message ringer or email.
I can not figure out how to change my text message ringtone, The ringtone for my text messages will not change not matter what I try. I have tried going into my text message main screen - menu - notification - ringtone BUT this puts the new ringtone on and does not turn off the old ring tone. I have tried changing my notification ringtone in the app Ringdroid and that changes everything but the text messages.
So, I was just curious, is there a way to set custom text message alerts on the the Droid, or can you only use the default ones that came with it? I figured out how to do custom ringtones, but cant figure out custom text message alerts.
How can I tell if I have a missed phone call? There doesn't seem to be any method of notification, such as the BlackBerry's "Missed 1 call" text message on the screen. I'm wondering how many calls I miss. At least, if I'm on the X, I get a notice there's another incoming call.
Sometimes when I receive messages it makes the notification sound and will show message in notification bar but the text of the message will not appear in the text thread. Used to happen every once in a while, now doing it multiple times a day. I use Handcent but I doubt that is the problem because the messages dont show up in the regular messaging either. Just want to see if i am alone with this problem.
Not sure if ne one knows about this, or even cares but I was excited so im sharing.I Froyo'd my droid using the instructions from droid-life found here: Download: Newer Motorola Droid Froyo Leak FRF57 | Droid Life: A Droid Community Blog.When I did so, my Missed Call app stopped working. However, Missed Call LED found in the market works great on my Froyo 2.2 Droid.Happy rooting everyone.
any body else like a beep when you miss a call? thats what I'm after.I was using missed reminder but it keeps my phone at 100% awake.not sure how good that is for my battery life.does everybody just check there phone alot to see if you missed a call? LED doesnt do me much good because you cant see it when its in the phone holder.it would be nice if it worked like the email or the text message does.
my Droid X is doing something completely unacceptable.It misses calls.There's no ring, no missed call indicator, just suddenly a voicemail indicator pops up to tell me that someone left a voice message.Sometimes it only happens once, and will receive the next call without a problem.Sometimes it'll do it three or four calls in a row.I've already talked to Verizon about it, and they've gone through the script. Before I call to yell at them until they replace the phone with one that works, I'm wondering if anyone else has any experience with the problem.
This has happened before and I fixed it, but i do not remember how.After I loaded wiped and loaded BB a weird ringtone that I don't remember having rings after a missed call.And it doesn't stop.I was walking around PetSmart today and I thought there was music coming from the shelves but it was really quiet.I was thoroughly confused until I went to the parking lot and figured out that it followed me, then deduced it was my phone.So this should be easy to turn off/silence I just can't figure it out.Anyone - you will get a "thanks" if it works.
Since the time I have upgraded to KitKat- I have been facing the issue of Call History. Every Time I miss a Call and I click on the name/number- Its asks me to select a default option of whoch way to open that entry , that is, through Dialer or through History. I tried selecting history and clicked on the "always use this option" but the same thing kept happening every time. After a few tries, I chose the other option and did the same thing and it again kept appearing... It looks like there's a bug in this and it never really saves my preference.
The stock streaming player on the evo seems to restart whenever you receive a text our call. This is very annoying because it also won't let you fast forward. It always starts the file over from the beginning. Does anyone havea fix for this? Or maybe a different player that works better?
