Question about Sony Ericsson P1i

Open Question

My P1i does not alert or display any notification when i recieve a sms message. I have checked control panel - device - Sounds and alerts - message alerts and marked the display notification option. There is no problem for the phone to recieve the messages, but i have to go to the inbox to see them. So most of the time i see them too late to answer. Do you know any solution?

Maybe, you are using... a file manager and that you have deleted one important file for messaging, or maybe because of virus....its better to update your phone using SonyEricsson's Update Manager... Just follow the Instruction andi t will reset your phone to its original state...Take note to BACK - UP all important programs or things on your phone. like contacts and installed softwares... you can use the PC SUITE to back up those needed data.

Hope it helps!!!!

SOURCE: message alert volume

It seems to be a problem on all these Sony Ericsson phones.

You can make it louder by going to setting/profiles and select an outdoor profile.
Also choose a sound that is very audible, you'll have to download one. I recommend: Zedge,

That phone only allows the default tones to be used as message alert tones. Other mp3 songs or tones cannot be used as message alerts.

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.

Htc touch pro 2 does not make any noise when I get a text. I have set the profile to normal and set the alert tone to on.

Have a look in sounds and notifications in the all settings menu, in notifications you may find that New SMS Message does not have an alert enabled. This is a different menu than the Touchflo interface sound settings in TF3d.
