    installing this application, you need to install BSD Subsystem first...

    BSD Subsystem is needed to run almost all the 3rd party apps on your phone. It is very secure, and absolutely needed. Dont worry about installing it...

    This is real handy but if the time is pre-set I think 15 seconds is a little over-kill. I'm sure a minimum of 30 seconds would do and maybe a minute would be more suitable.

    I hope Nate plans on (if not already) allowing user variable time settings.

    I wonder if Nate could incorporate missed calls into this program also...now that would be cool.

    Yes I realley hope they are able to incorporate missed calls. That is one of the top things I have been wanting along with Video and Flash .
    We need a missed call reminder of some sort.

    Also would love a user-settable time, missed calls, and ALERTS as well!

    This is cool! One thing you guys might want to consider too is that the battery life will be reduced greatly as well....thats the only down side.

    I agree...great app!

    Would like to see the ability to choose between vibrate and a tone...

    For example...if you have a text message waiting, then is should ring your text message tone at your selected interval. If you happen to have the phone on vibrate, then it would vibrate.

    Also, if you missed a call, it would be nice to be able to set a tone to that as well...and again, if you have it on vibrate it would vibrate as well.

    In smsnotify.sh change line
    sleep 15

    to how many seconds you want vibrated between ( example 60 seconds = 1 minute )

    sleep 120

    so every 2 minutes it would vibrate.

    Now looking at how this app is run seems like it queries the sms database for new entry if so vibrate until new entry is read. You could in theory make it play a sound instead of vibrate easily.

    As well could be modified to look at recent/missed call database and voicemail and do same. ( basically anything that has a number bubble associated with it )

    As for Alerts( reminders/calender/battery 20/10% , etc.. )...think it would need some special coding to detect. As they are jsut queried reponses from a database and never saved anywhere as a new message.



    But i must say as is a great little utility. Simple yet effective.

    Sounds easy enough...but what program do you need to read/modify the *.sh file? Any text editor?

    /usr/local/smsnotify.sh

    use a text editor to change the 15 sec to whatever you prefer.

    The 15 seconds did become annoying after a while, I'm going to try to change it to 120 seconds and see how it is

    What line(s) do I have to add in smsnotify.sh to make it play sound every so and so minutes?

    Default how to play a sound with SMS notify AND MISSED CALL work around
    Hi Guys,

    I found a way to play a sound whenever it vibrates by editing smsnotify.sh.

    I also found a work around in 10 minutes to make it also check for the last call and see if it was incoming and missed. NOTE that this only checks for the LAST call, but for my imediate needs, it works fine. To make it stop 'notifying' me for the last missed call, I just need to make a call, it doesn't even need to ring, just click on the number to dial someone, and click on end call straight away. I'll work on this further tomorrow and see if I can figure out how to make this better.

    here's a copy of my smsnotify.sh file:

    -------------------

    #!/bin/sh
    smsnpath=/usr/local/smsnotify
    sql=$smsnpath/sqlite3
    vibrate=$smsnpath/vibrator
    audiofile=/Library/Ringtones/Doorbell.m4r
    while test 1
    do
    n=`$sql /var/root/Library/SMS/sms.db 'select count(*) from message where flags=0'`;
    if [ "$n" -gt 0 ]
    then
    /var/root/bin/playaudio $audiofile &
    $vibrate &
    fi
    c=`$sql /var/root/Library/CallHistory/call_history.db 'select count(*) from call where flags=4 and duration=0 and ROWID=(select max(ROWID) from call)'`;
    if [ "$c" -gt 0 ]
    then
    /var/root/bin/playaudio $audiofile &
    $vibrate &
    fi
    sleep 60
    done

    -------------------

    in my case, I picked the doorbell ringtone, and also changed the interval to 60 seconds.

    I'm sure this can be improved. But, as I said, I came up with this solution in only a few minutes.

    Oh, nearly forgot, to install the 'playaudio' script, you need to install EricaUtilities on your phone, and also need the BSD subsystem. easiest way to change the script is through SSH into your phone.

    Cheers,
    Fernando

    Just looking through your code and looks good. Looks similiar to what i am currently trying, but beleive the missed call will always be active unless you click on the missed call in recent as if you don't normally the bubble # for missed call is still present thus database has new entry.
