    Maybe this is old but I've realized that if I receive a text and don't check it, some minutes later a text alert sound will go off (the screen won't be on, though), wait some more and the alert will go off again. I don't know how many minutes it is, but I know it happens twice.

    I don't know if it happens more than that because I usually check it after the second.

    This happened as a result of the 2.2 update. It goes off only 2 additional times every 5 minutes. :)

    yea i dont like that either, because then it makes me think that i got multiple texts, when in reality i only got one.

    That's a shame. I'd like a reminder sound to go off at a configurable "once every X minutes" that is its own sound, to tell me to check my phone.

    Its a great OPTION to have, but they need to make it just that. An option.

    Oh OK, so I'm not just going wacko LOL. I thought maybe it was an option with the 2.2 update but I couldn't find it anywhere in the settings, I don't mind it at all, in fact I like it, but I would like to change the sound so that I don't think I got a new text.

    im pretty sure it was a 2.1 feature not 2.2, personally i like it i just wish there was an email reminder, as the sound is a little quiet in my opinion

    I know I can't that's why I "thought" it was a feature and that's why I "would like" to change the sound.
