iPhone 4 Missed SMS and Call reminders

Hello,

Coming from Blackberry and Motorola cell phones and just picked up the iPhone 4. How can I make it so that missed (unread) SMS txt and Calls beep every X (configurable) number of minutes until I respond. I am away from my phone for several hours sometimes and when I am near it I don't want to have to check to see if anything happened.

Not possible.  No such option exists within the iOS settings.

As far as text messages, there is an option in the settings to repeat a text message alert twice if you don't reply or dismiss the original alert.  But as far as missed calls, I'm not sure.

And yet, you get used to it.

 

Put the Phone app and the SMS app in the dock. You'll see the red "new items" bubble on each right away.
