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.
can we set the message alert of this N8 to make audible sound every 30 minutes or even 5 minutes interval? like if i don't have the phone near me, and i will not be able to check it for new message and it will alert every 5 minutes until i am able to get to the phone and read the message?
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. It doesn't show the new message icon either. Only way I know I've got a new message is by going into the messages screen and seeing the red inbox sign.
I've noticed today that when i recieve a text message, i don't get a message tone/ alert. I have checked and double checked that the phone is on loud, i have turned the phone off and even taken the battery out, but it hasnt solved a thing. I now only know if i have a message once i have gone in to my inbox.
I am planning to buy a new smartphone in the new year. So I decided to go for Nokia Lumia series Phones.So I have only two points to confirm.If I buy Lumia 510 or 620. Will they1) alert me instantly if I get a email?2) Alert when some ping me on gtalk or Msn ?) Can I use Lync messenger?
nokia 5230, is that my phone doesnt play the message alert tone, when in the settings, it says it is on. Because i put a mp3 tone as the message alert tone, but then my friend texted me, so i didnt get to see her text until an hour later. i tried testing my speakers, nothing is wrong with the speakers.
My 5530 is no longer alerting me that i have a message, there is no sound, no pop up message and no symbol at the top of the phone, the only was of knowing i have a message is to go in to the messge menu and look for the start next to the inbox. The rest of the phone is find, alerts me normally when recieving calls.
I have tried restoring to factory setting, hard reset and reinstalling but nothing seams to work.
I am wondering if it is possible to customize the message alert tone for the Nokia 5800 with my own ringtones that I have purchased - not the default ones that come with the phone. I seem to be able to change the ringtone for calls with my own ringtone files but not for the message alerts.
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!
I bought nokia asha 200 4 month ago. At the first time, the function notification alert me when the message delivered very good. But, after 3 days later, It doesn't work. I update the new version software to my phone 3 times. So far, My phone use the software version 11.56, It still doesn't work.
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.
I have an 5800 xm blue. you could select message tone before but i turned it off only to vibrate. now i got this really cool tone I want to use but when switching msg tones back on it gives me a warning-----not enough memory to display all ringtones, only tones in read-only memory will be displayd. -------- why can't i select and set a msg tone in my music gallery like a ring tone? And how do i get the msg tones to work properly. My phone memory is 48mb free from 86mb?
I want to extend the alert when i get a message while its on silent. I have vibration on and it just vibrates once and i dont know when i have a message. How can i extend the vibration alert when i get a message?
Yesterday my N8 stopped vibrating when it recieved a text message , I enabled vibration alert in the profile and checked if it was a hardware problem by calling . The phone vibrates when it gets a call but it doesn't vibrate when a message comes ! I did not install advanced battery monitor also ! I reset my phone and re-installed the latest firmware also , but still the problem persists
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?
On bbm I keep getting an incoming bbm instant message alert/sound while im typing a message. The alert/sound only appears for incoming bbm messages when I'm typing on bbm. the alert/sound is different than the sound that I set on the profile menu and the volume is much bigger. Can I deactivate this alert/sound?
I just noticed in my 3gs that once I am in the message thread and the same person replies to my message, the default message tone saved in my setings is not played, instead, it is only like a "balloon sound" / "bubble sound"
I had bought nokia 5230 recently. I have a problem in setting ring tone and message tone.When i trying to set ringing tone or message alert tone in the Profiles(General) it showing an error message as "Not enough memory to show all ringing tones. only tones in read only memory will be displayed". But my phone memory has 50.1 MB free space and My memory card has 1.2 GB memory space.
I deleted all my SMS messages (and I think I deleted two of them without reading them)so I have the visual alert saying that i have 2 unread messages, but no messages. How do I reset this number or this alert?
I just belatedly installed the latest blackberry update and after doing so, the "new email" icon appeared at the top of my screen telling me I have two new emails. I didn't have any new emails though and now the icon won't go away. What I can do to make the icon go away?
I have a torch 9800 and at the top of the home screen, I can click a tab to see new alerts. For some reason, if I don't click there first when I want to view a new txt message alert an go to the text msg folder first to read the msg, the alert doesn't disappear (unless I do a battery pull). If I click on the alert, it brings me to a blank text messaging field and when I click out of it, it's still there. How do I get rid of these alerts w/o having to do battery pulls?
am starting to have dejavu moments. When I had my desire before, started out great...then it started becoming unstable...the usual what is the latest thing you installed etc...the ?motherboard got changed twice and in the end, they sent me a new one...I hate setting it all up again, such a heartbreak to get something as u like it then have to do it again.Anyways, I nearly converted to an iPhone when it was time to upgrade as none of the htc appealed but the one came out just in time.I have the one s since soon after it's launch and have been loving it......BUT, since last week, glitches are starting...first, I have noticed the battery going down much faster, can't say I have changed the way I am using it...then have also noticed that I am not being notified of new messages, I initially at times but now always, and have missed a few important ones! And lastly, the homepage loading is now slow...before instant, now you go into the loading icon with timer going around and once there, widgets take some time to get info.Have tried checking on updates, uninstalling last few apps, clearing cache, turning off and back on..
I have a wildfire s not long had it well 3 days now and I would like to Personalize Message Alert. I have a sound I wish to use which has been bluetoothed to me... but I cannot seen to get so I can use it when I get a text message....
