I'm looking for a couple of programs to load onto my Pocket PC:
  1. Back as a kid I remember seeing the cell sites my phone was connected to (such as Auckland CBD, Newmarket etc).  Is there a program available (or a setting change) to view this on the Today screen?
  2. I often forget to read a SMS when I first receive it.  Would be nice to have the phone beep once every 10 minutes until I read any unread messages.  Any programs to do this also?
Thanks.

First question hope this would work.

Also, keep in mind, Cell Broadcast does not work on 3G.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.

Really?? My understanding is this is not a feature of UMTS. Where did you get this info from? Would be great to see this feature come back.

Tried to install this, but my phone keeps giving me an error (imate kjam).

Thanks zocster for your suggestion, but that didn't work for me either.  Ended up going with this, but still looking for a solution for my SMS reminding.
