On the main screen press the menu part of the screen. After this, press the settings button, then phone profile, click on the two red arrows to change the settings, and then in the top right corner there is a box with a down arrow that says incoming. Click on the down arrow and then on new messages and there you go. Change the message type, vibration and volume. Hope this helps.

How do I set my samsung S111 to repeat the notification of an incoming text until I answer it?


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

How do I set my samsung S111phone to repeat the notification of a text until I answer it?


Kindly follow the steps listed below to do so:
  1. Go to Apps through Home screen.
  2. Tap Messaging.
  3. Tap the Menu key.
  4. On pop up menu select Settings.
  5. Scroll to Notification settings section then tap Message alert repetition.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?

TEXT ALERT


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.

Why does my samsung s380c phone have no text or voice mail alert signal


Menu > Messages > Msg Settings > General > Message Alerts


By default, this setting is "Off" - which makes absolutely zero sense. Try setting it to "Once", "Every 2 Minutes" or "Every 15 Minutes"


Changing this setting didn't help the no text alert issue with the Samsung S380C I'm dealing with, but it might work for you.
