    Missed call / text alert app?
    Is there an app that will periodically alert you, through an alarm, when you you've missed a text or call?

    Thanks!

    Specs:
    27" iMac i7 (2011) 10.11, Mac Mini i5 (2014), iPhone7, Apple Watch, iPad Pro 9.7, AppleTV (4)
    The iPhone settings let you have it repeat the alert a number of times, coupled with notification center it's easy to see missed calls/texts
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Thanks! Which settings are you referring to exactly? And what exactly should I be toggling to get the repeated notifications you've mentioned? Thanks for your help...

    a. Have you upgraded to iOS 5? If not, do so.

    b. Now that you're on iOS 5, swipe to open from the lock screen, and then swipe DOWN from the top of the screen. Voila.

    I'm looking for something different. When I owned a Motorola phone, it periodically beeped when I didn't notice that I call or text came in. Is there anything similar for the iPhone?

    So, a written notice of the calls and messages you've missed isn't enough??

    Oh-kay .... um, no nothing built in that I can think of. Maybe you could check the App Store for a third-party solution.

    I have. Hence the post... And which it might seem like I'm asking for a lot, consider this: sometimes one doesn't realize that there's been a missed call w/o an alarm of some sort. Thanks for your input...

    Messages you can go into settings -> notifications -> messages and select a repeat option, although it's limited to a max of 10 repeats alerts. There is no repeat on the phone tho.

    AFAIK also there are no apps that will do what you want (since running apps in the background is for specific tasks and with apps sandboxed, there is limited access to each app including phone functionality).
    My Macs: Late 2013 rMBP w/ 750m, 16Gig ram; 2013 Mac Pro 6 core w/ D700, 16Gig Ram; Mac mini G4, 1.25 GHz, 512m ram (server); Late 2011 11" MBA, 1.8GHz i7, 4Gig Ram, 256Gig SSD, HD3000; Powerbook 12" G4 1.33GHz running Linux; Apple TV (1080p version)
