Missed call notifications with STAMINA mode - a workaround
This is a workaround for getting missed call notifications in addition to SMS notifications whilst using STAMINA mode.
Note this only works for anybody who hasn't upgraded their firmware yet.
Upgrading apparently "fixes" this (useful) bug and you don't get notified at all any more.
The notification LEDs only appear to stay flashing in STAMINA mode if the event occurs when screen is off. This is why SMS notification works, as an incoming SMS doesn't wake the phone. Phone calls,on the other hand, cause the screen to come on, so the notification LEDs don't remain flashing after the missed call. It's the nature of the "bug" it seems.
So, missed calls have to be converted to SMS. The free app "Missed Call Messenger Lite" does this. If a call is missed it fires off an SMS. If you put your own number as the SMS destination, you send yourself an SMS which comes back shortly, time depending on how busy your network is, usually 2-5 seconds.
The problem is, if your network returns the SMS too quickly it arrives whilst the screen is still lit from the phone call. Luckily the app has a delay setting ("call log timeout" - under "Advanced Settings") which delays sending the SMS. Default is 5 secs. If you set 15 secs or longer it should work, the SMS being delayed until after the screen goes off. You need to include Missed Call Messenger in your STAMINA mode exception list,or the SMS won't get sent!
There's one more thing you need to do. There is already an automatic entry in contacts, right at the top, called "Myself", and the bounced back SMS will be from "Me". Unfortunately you can't set the illumination for "Myself", so you have to create another contact with your own number.
You could name it "Missed Call" or similar, and if you begin it with an underscore it will end up out of the way at the bottom of the contact list. Luckily the system picks up your new contact rather than "Myself" when your own number comes in, and the LED bar flashes.
It sounds a complicated workaround but it actually works without any fuss,so you can now have phone and SMS notifications.
Just to repeat, this only works for the original firmware
