    Hi:
    Is there a way to get more than one alert (sound notification) for a voice mall, missed call or SMS? Frustrating if you're away from the phone for a few minutes. You have no way of knowing you missed a call or have a voice mail until you turn the phone back on.:phone:

    What Iphone do you have? The 4S allows you to purchase new tones right to the device.

    Sorry. 4S here. I worded my question poorly. What I am trying to do is get more than a single beep sound when someone leaves a voice mail. It only sounds off one time and if you miss it you have no way of knowing till you turn the phone back on.

    Messages is the only app I've seen that has different alert "repeats". Go to Settings>General>Notifications>Messages>Repeat Alert

    He meant iOS 5 let's you buy and download ringtones/alerts straight to your device. iOS 5 is the firmware the iPhone 4S came preloaded with. 8)
