Nokia :: Problems With New Message Alert On Home Screen ( X6)

Mar 5, 2010

Not sure if this problem is specific to the Nokia X6 but this is really annoying me! I have contacted Nokia through their form as well as speaking to an advisor.

Basically, when your phone has been auto-locked, is there a way other than the ridiculous little light flashing once to alert you to a new message? I often have my phone on silent during the day and can't see this little white light (notification light/menu button). On my previous phone, the whole main screen used to light up when I received a text but I can't find a way to do that on the X6.

I thought I had found a quick fix as it seems to do it if the screen is unlocked then the backlight will go off, however, then the auto-lock kicks in and I'm back to square one again!! Please can anyone advise me on either:

1) If there is a way for the main screen to light up when you receive a message if your phone has been locked (i.e. black screen)

2) Or if not, a way to turn off the auto keyguard lock?

It's gonna drive me completely round the twist if I can't find a solution!

Small question: Can I have the next meeting or next event from my calendar appear on the home screen.

I didn't found any parameter on the phone or any idea on the forum.

Nokia :: X6 Memo's And Meetings With Alarms / Phone Switched Off / Don't Get Alert / Screen Flash When Message Comes

Apr 13, 2010

I just got an X6 and was wondering if someone can answer the questions?I've tried settings memo's and meetings with alarms, however if the phone is switched off they don't alert me when I turn it on. Is there something I can change to do this? When I get a new message and the phone is locked the menu button light flashes. Is there a way to make the screen flash when a message comes in (even just once)?Can I get rid of the 'Add' icon on the front as it's in the middle of my other contacts?

IPhone 5s :: IOS 7.1.2 / Banner Alert Stopping Launching Apps From Home Screen

Aug 23, 2014

Whenever a banner alert appears from my home screen, it prevents me from going to open a different app. This is happened when using WhatsApp so I don't know if it's a third-party issue.

For example the banner alert is from WhatsApp, but I can't tap on the app itself, I have to tap on the banner alert. I try tapping on different apps and it won't let me.

iPhone 5s, iOS 7.1.2

Nokia :: X6 Message Alert

May 15, 2010

When I first got my X6 I had my message alert set to vibrate and when i received a text message the screen would do so as well as displaying a '1 new message' alert in the bottom bit of the screen. Recently my phone has stopped doing this and the only way I can see I have a new message is by touching the messaging icon and seeing the red asterisk that appears at the top right of the inbox when there is an unread message in there.

My N97 won't alert me to new text messages. It is set to play a sound (message 1), and i've had it for months it used to beep normally but now it doesn't anymore. and the phone is not on silent.

Nokia :: 6700 Slide/ Text Alert / Getting Rid Of Start Up Message

Jul 4, 2010

I have never posted on anything like this before so please bear with me.I have a new 6700 slide, but there are 2 things I can't get used to, having had a Samsung phone before.

1. (The worst thing) - if a text comes in, and I don't happen to hear the buzzy tone thing, then I don't get another reminder, and there is no visible sign on the phone that there is a new message unless I open the slide. Even then it doesn't tell me who the message is from and I have to go to the inbox. Is there a way of getting more than one alert? I really don't like this.

2. Every time I turn the phone on it asks me to set up my email preferences. I don't want to use it for email but even if I cancel it, it asks me again next time I turn it on. Can I stop it asking once and for all?

3. Is there a way of marking text messages for deletion, without having to mark just one (very time consuming) or all (which you might not want to do)?

I would be really grateful for any help on one or all of these questions. I really wanted a Nokia but now I am pining for my Samsung.
