Incoming text notification question


On incoming text messages my notification ring only sounds off one time. I'm used to my old Galaxy nagging me til I acknowledge the text. If I am out of earshot I'm S>O>L unless I happen to see the blue light at the bottom. I hate that! How do you make the ZTE do like my Galaxy?

    @jim_w Welcome to the Z-Community.

    To have your text messages keep reminding you to go:  (in the stock text messaging app)

    Messages App > Settings > "Notification for unread alerts"

    there you will be able to have the message to keep notifying you until you open it.


  • It was set to 3 min. I changed it to 1 min. Still getting only 1 ring.....waiting....nothing.

    I ended up using a 3rd party texting app, I use Textra it seems to have its own setting for persistent notifications until you acknowledge it.

  • Does that app also allow you to set separate notification tones for individual contacts? I really miss not knowing who's texting me until I pick up the phone.
