    My old phone used to beep every 5 minutes if I missed a call or had a text message/voice mail that hadn't been checked.. Does the Storm have this function?

    I've been through some of my settings and haven't been able to find it..

    And yes, I searched the forum already and did not find the answer..

    the Storm and BBs in general, from what I have seen, only do visual reminders/alerts and not audible.

    No audible missed calls alerts. Man I really hated how my motorola use to do that. Some a$$ hole would leave his phone around when he went to a meeting. That thing would beep for hours and drive me nuts.

    Just look for the red blinking LED

    I missed it at first but mostly enjoy the silence now. Still would be nice to have the option. I've read that the LED stops blinking after a while too but can't confirm or deny

    It was great for me b/c I'd run downstairs to do laundry or go into another room for a few minutes then I would hear it if someone called/texted while I was gone.. I feel like a dummy checking my phone every time I re-enter a room. It's not like any of my calls or texts are important but it's just something that Ill need to get used too..

    I can confirm that yes, the LED stops blinking after awhile... I left my phone in the car at the gym a few times and the LED did not blink but when I went to use my phone afterward it said there was missed calls/messages.. I'm usually in the gym from 45m - 1 hour..

    I just installed bbalerts, and it works well, itll alert you with a blinking LED, you can set the color, and an alert every 1,3,5... minutes. And it doesnt stop alerting after 15 minutes like the storm. Try it.

    that would drive me nuts. The red blinking is amazing for me. I cannot stand to have a phone beep or vibrate constantly after a missed call/e-mail/text/update, or whatever. I guess they should make it an option for people who do like it though.
