Is there any way to force iPhone 4 to keep alerting me of an unread txt?

    When I get a txt, unless I notice it straight away, I have no idea that a txt has arrived, other than taking my phone out if its pouch and checking it, as it only alerts me once, that I have a txt.

    Is there any way to force my iPhone 4 (running 4.2.1, non JB'd), to keep alerting me, say every 10 minutes, that I have an unread txt?

    The BlackBerry I used before I got my iPhone 4 had a flashing read light that blinked to show a new msg was waiting.

    The best you can do with the OS as is: Settings>Messages>"Repeat Alert" but this will only alert you a twice more.

    The 4.3 update allows you to alert many more times than just 2

    That's good to know. Hopefully 4.3 should be with us shortly.

    Thanks for the info
