Msg Notifications on Droid RAZR...

I'm one of those weird people who actually doesn't pick up their phone every 5 seconds. This morning, I left the house to go to the mailbox, and in that time, received a call, and the caller left a voicemail. The message was important. --I didn't realize I had a voicemail until 4 hrs after it was left!

My old phone had a message notification thinggie where it would beep every 3min until something was ack'ed. My wifes Samsung with Android 4.1.1 has this feature, but my RAZR with 4.0.1 does not. We've looked everywhere.

What app is available as a 'watchdog' of sorts, that could notify me by a recurring beep, when I receive a missed call, or a voicemail.. etc etc....

I've done some research, and there are apps out there that will blink the screen, or put icons on it etc etc... for phones that don't have a Notification LED.

Mine has one, but I don't pick up my phone ever 5min. Does anyone use an app that can just do a simple beep every 3min or so, when an event occurs? Itd also be nice if it had a private-hours setting so I can sleep...

I use an Android app called Missed Call Deluxe. It notifies me of a missed voice call, voice mail, or text. Love it!

I noticed that the reviews on this app seems to say that it works better on some phones, than others.. I guess it's the luck of the draw? for my RAZR?

Also: My wife's new Samsung device is running Android 4.1.1, and mine is running 4.0.4. Her phone actually has an audible reminder that can be set, which is exactly what I'm looking for. is this a new feature in 4.1.1, that I don't have in 4.0.4? Is there anything I can do to my RAZR to force a 'check', and upgrade to 4.1.1?
