My phone is set to alert me about an incoming txt every 2 minutes until I answer. However, it alerts (vibrates and sounds) only once. This is very annoying as I do not always notice I have received a SMS the first time..and so I have to check my phone lots during the day..GRRRRRR

Click on "messging" like you're about to read a text, then click on left hand side and a few options should come up, click on the "settings", scroll down until you find the "notification settings", then click on "message alert repetition", you should be able to change it to either "once, every 2 minutes or every 10 minutes"... hope that helped
Scroll to Notification settings section then tap Message alert repetition.
Here you can see three options available on pop up menu. They are:
Once: Choose this option if you want your phone ring the tone just once when receiving an incoming messages.
Every 2 minutes: Choose this option if you want your phone ring the tone every 2 minutes until you open the message.
every 10 minutes: Choose this option if you want your phone ring the tone every 10 minutes until you open the message.
Tap the required message alert repetition option you wish to use. When the dot indicator next to the option shows green means the option is selected.
Tap Home button to return to the standby mode.
By adjusting message alert repetition just once or more than once, now your phone will notify you when receiving new message and repeating the tone according to the settings you've just done. So, what's the option you use on your phone?
I use SMS Popup (from the Play Store) for repeating text message reminders. It has other functions, but I primarily use the 'reminder' options. I'm not sure if you could (or should) do 5 to 10 second intervals as it would probably kill your battery. I think that 1 minute is the minimum. I guess you could also use a notification sound that is longer. You could even record your own. I once recorded myself coughing and used it as the notification.
to increase the sound on your message alerts please goto Menu, Settings, Phone Profiles and then highlight the profile you are currently using. Then press Options and then Edit. In this menu scroll to your right once to access your message alerts. From here please make sure the volume of the alert is set to 7
You CAN set a song as your text alert tone. Here are the steps: 1- Go to: Settings> Profiles> 2- Select your options (e.g. normal, vibrate and ring, etc....) 3- select Options> Customize (2)> 4- Highlight "Message Sound" and select Options> Customize (2), 5- Then browse to the folder your song or sound is in (e.g. audio) and select the file you want to use and save it.
I noticed that the songs have to be under 30 seconds to use as any type of alert tone for calls or texts.
