    Question voicemail notificaion and unlock question

    Advertisement



    1/ Is there a way to set up the voicemail notification so that the sound will repeat?
    (eg. chirp every 5 minutes until you retrieve the voicemail?)
    I can't figure out a way to do it... so often don't know I HAVE voicemail (because I also can barely see the voicemail icon)

    2/ If I unlock the phone and then want to use it in Europe...
    I think I can buy a "prepaid" SIM card..
    If that card is in my phone is my phone number my same US phone number?
    and, if I make calls with that SIM card in place would there be any charges from T-Mobile?

    Thanks very much !

    1) you will need a third party app to do something like that. the 'notifications' aren't setup to repeat. even the red led will start blinking green again after a few minutes.

    2) not sure how that works. i don't think you can keep your same number if you get a prepaid sim, wouldn't that be a different number, associated with the sim? im not too familiar with taking the bb's overseas/internationally. sry

    No possibility for the device to keep making sound until you retrieve it. There is the LED that will flash until you get it though. Blackberry Alerts is a cheap app that lets you assign different colors to different things, like email, missed calls, SMS, etc.

    As for the SIM your number would change with the SIM.

    ^^ Blackberry Alerts is awesome. You can find it at Handango.com
    I couldn't imagine having my BB without it

    I love BB Alerts too. I can just look at my phone in my purse and tell whether something has come in or not. The color also tells me what has come in, i.e. it's a text message versus an email. Another thing I just got was VOICE TO TEXT from my carrier. It converts any voice mail to a text message so I don't have to go into the VM program with my pin # all the time. Sometimes the spelling is off just a little but I can usually tell what they meant.

    For the sim question. TMO wouldnt charge you for anything since you wouldnt be using their network. And your number would change when you replaced the sim card.
