    Default Android Help

    Ok I cannot figure this out and I've looked at the android forums (really don't want to join and ask a question) Soooo I'm hoping you guys could help me.

    I have a samsung stratosphere and when I have a voicemail the little icon shows up and that's it. There's no sound that I have a voicemail (like with text messages). I'd like to have a sound go off and it repeatedly go off every 'whatever' amount of minutes. From what I've gathered from the forums is that I need an app to make this happen, i think. Is this correct? If so, what app do you recommend?

    Thanks!!!

    Oooh you have to download an app for the sound reminder. I have the droid razr maxx and HATED that I would miss texts etc so I downloaded an app and have been happy ever since. I will look and see if I can find which one it is....

    K what I have is the missed message flasher free version. I like it and have used it for months now. It doesnt remind for voicemail I dont think but it does for missed calls so the same thing really.

    With my android, I had to go into the voicemail settings itself and set it to play a notification. My phone will then blink until I listen to it or clear it. Have you tried that yet?

    @cali~jenn before I saw your message I downloaded 'handscent' which gives you a whole crap load of options (that I don't like or need) and just uninstalled, so I installed the one you suggested and I'm going to give that a whirl...thanks!

    @Zoey1974 The options I have for voicemail are...ignore msg, answr mode, auto retry, dtmf tones (whatever this is ), tty mode & voice privacy

    If I have my voicemail open, I tap the menu button and hit settings. It then gives me an option to play notification sound. Do you have anything like that?

    @Zoey1974 No mine doesn't. It's a Stratosphere, so I'm not sure if that matters. I'm just thinking, what a stupid basic thing not to include on a phone. Unless they want you to spend the time and data to get apps for this kind of stuff.

    @cali~jenn Yea I noticed there's no option for voicemail. It's working for the text messages.

    My mom called me several times the other day and I didn't hear it and she started to get worried, so in the morning I saw I had a voicemail and it was her saying "Um Ashley I called you several times and I'm getting worried, can you just text me that you're ok or better yet, call me" I felt so bad. I always pick up when my mom calls (when I hear it)

    It should also have a sound for when you miss calls, no? Mine does..... I think. Lol
