    Hi,

    Is there any way to get a 'reminder' alert when a text or voicemail
    message has arrived on a T610? I know how to get the initial alert, but
    if I miss it, how do I get the phone to remind me there's a message
    waiting for me?

    Also, anyone know where you get a decent T610 manual? A pdf download
    maybe? I've Googled but found nothing useful so far.

    Thanks.

    No, a reminder isn't available.

    and I miss that too; Nokia 6610 have that.
    Nokia's reminder are two little icons (for SMS and missed call) which
    appear on the "digital clock" screensaver. great feature. wonder if it's
    possible to code an alternative screensaver which will do the same job
    as original one, plus that notifying icons or something like that...

    The SE K700 does show a missed call or message allert, like the Nokia you mention, on screen.
    So you have to look at it. OK, now you see it without pressing any buttons (to see the main screen)
    The Moto V70 beeped and vibrated every x minutes.

    .... would be pointless on a T610 since the screensaver is never visible
    except for a couple of milliseconds (time between its appearance before
    the display light goes off).

    I would use the LED on the joystick. Really sily the haven't done it.

    Good idea.
    But what does the LED on the joystick do anyway?
    I've never seen mine lit up yet that I can remember ;o/

    Lights up when the phone is being charged when switched off.

    It can also be used in certain ringtones to flash...

    Yeah! Great uses of it.

    The clock - screensaver is integrated into the firmware, and it's
    black-white only to save battery life.
    (you'll have to get SE to change the firmware for you, but I think that
    development on the T610 has already ceased)

    The little red light on the joystick flashes on low battery (IMHO that's
    useless, because you can't see it in daylight...)
    This "feature" is about as useful as the red LED blinking on my HBH-60,
    when the battery is about to go dead. - No warning tone at all :-((

    just my 2 cents

    Well TBO honest I don't think I've seen my stick LED alight in 14 months of
    owning the damned thing!
    The headset led is great too, I must agree. What's the point of it going
    red, when it's shoved in lug'ole! My eyes can't see round there ;op a
    tone would be great, as I have on quite a few occasions, been nattering away
    just to find that the battery had gone flat and the other party had no idea!
    Bloody useless, like a _lot_ of the SE ideas, and s/w!!

    I never noticed there was an LED in the joystick! I thought it was just
    a piece of plastic, a fabulous design feature LOL! So no message alert
    reminder then? Great.

    When the phone is off, and you plug in the charger, the joystick LED will
    light up. But on the manual, there seems no mentioning it at all. Strange.
    Who can explain the LED on the joystick in details? TIA

    Never noticed that. Back to the original question, the T-610 does notify you
    of missed called (icon on the screen), and of un-read text messages (icon on
    the screen).

    The details are that the LED only lights when the phone is being
    charged or has a very low battery. That's all.

    on my 630 there is a digital clock application which shows up with WHITE
    background and black digits. the screen just dim itself after second or
    two as you mentioned, and the screen looks like BLACK with transparent
    digits showing the time. that digital clock is _always_ shown. just like
    Nokias, Samsungs, etc. so what's pointless here? i don't know what you
    think as "never visible"? your phone shuts down the screen and you see
    nothing??

    > I would use the LED on the joystick. Really sily the haven't done it.


    i agree, that would be the solution too
