Alerts - Contineous

I'm seeking a way for when a message is sent to the BB that an alert sounds until I respond to the message. Currently the alert rings 3 times and stops.  These messages are of a critical nature so it is important that I am aware of them, typically this occurs in the middle of the night.

 

Thanks you.

Re: Alerts - Contineous

You need BBAlerts, a third party appllication to extend your notifications for until you respond.

Hi Pixie

 

By design, the 3 rings, and vibrations are how the devices and OS were designed.

Have you tried using Level 1 filters with louder profiles?

I am on 24x support on rotating weekends and this is what I do.

I setup a custom filter so that when I get a specific message, my phone will make a special sound...
