Missed call/message received alarm

I'm looking for a mobile that will give some sort of extra notification that a call has been missed or message received and not read.

This might be a flashing LED or an audible alarm of some sort.

I had an old Motorola that used to do this but I'm struggling to find something available today.

Any ideas please?

The Motorola L6 is fairly cheap and bleeps after a missed call.

..that's a start (though it does get a bit of a slagging in the reviews).

Any others?

As youtruth said, after a missed call/text most motorola's (newer ones) give an audible beep every 60 or 120 seconds (i cant remember which) .

Other than that, my old Samsung E710 has a very bright flashing white LED which flashes constantly until the text is read. A hugely usefull feature, and one of the only phones ive ever come across that do it.

OK, I'll have a closer look at the current Samsung and Motorola phones.

Thanks to both of you - much appreciated.

The new LG Viewty will alert you every 2,5 or 10 minutes of a missed text message. Think it will also tell you of missed call but not sussed that bit out yet

It can be turned off in the options! Actually a very useful option as if you dont hear a text message come through it can be hours later til you realise otherwise
