current version is 1.4.1 beta
my own attempt to add the missing "missed call" and "missed sms" reminder to WM 6, WM 6.1 and WM 6.5
the idea here was to keep it simple. the program can vibrate and or generate a chosen sound at a set interval, to notify the user that there are missed calls or unread sms messages. it will wakeup the device if needed to give the notification.
Note: The program has been created and tested on PocketPC phones only. This program might or might not work correctly on Smartphones.
install the cab on the device or the storage card.
launch the application and set your preferences.
click apply, the program will minimize. it is neccessary to keep the program running to have it generate new reminders, but it only uses the cpu when needed it does not poll every minute or so to see if a notification came in.
hope that someone will find this usefull
The program currently offers the following:
missed notification for missed call/ sms / mms and e-mail
No reminder when call is in progress
Option to set sound per reminder type (the sounds will,if needed, be generated all at once for the moment, this could be changed in the future)
option to "minimize to taskbar" or "minimize and hide"
Lock screen on phone call connect (I am using this myself and decided to keep it in. it locks the screen using the windows lock when a phonecall is connected. it unlocks the screen when a phonecall is finished. Default this is off, and you do not have to use it if you do not want to.)
Option to set vibrate time in seconds
LED vibrate number can be chosen from 0 till 20
Option to not wakeup the device
Option to not give reminder in set timespan (if you specify from 2300 till 0700, it means that the program will not generate a reminder between 2300 and 0700 each day)
Should display in QVGA/VGA/WQVGA/WVGA
The program uses almost no cpu time, only when it is needed
one "advanced user" registry key in HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/MissedCallReminder:
debug: Default is "False", if set to "True", the program will generate debug information in a logfile. to help me indentify problems.
NOTE: apparently Omnia devices use the sms count for both SMS and MMS, that means that the program should generate a MMS reminder if SMS reminder is selected. I would like to hear from Omnia users if this is true.

bugfix: Reminders are given for a notification even if the notification is not selected in the notifications tab. (second attempt )

TODO (Things that will be in a next version):

option to stop generating a reminder after x times

A small FAQ
Q: what does Vibrate LED number mean?
A: The LED number specified here is used to vibrate the device. This is different per device. Using the "Menu - Test vibrate" you can test if the number entered in the vibrate LED number field is the correct one for vibrating the device.
Q: what does the menu option "No icon in taskbar mean?
A: the option "Menu - No icon in taskbar" controls the "minimize to taskbar" or "minimize and hide".
When "No icon in taskbar" is NOT selected the program will minimize to the taskbar. the program can only be reopened using the icon in the taskbar. it is not visible in the taskmanager.
When "No icon in taskbar" is selected the program will only minimize. it can be reopened by relaunching the program. it is also visible in the taskmanager.
TouchFlo user should select the "No icon in taskbar". when doing this please close the program and relaunch it for the setting to take effect.
Q: What does "Lock screen on call connect" mean?
A: it locks the screen using the windows lock when a phonecall is connected. it unlocks the screen when a phonecall is finished. Default this is off, and you do not have to use it if you do not want to.
Q: I cannot relaunch the program when it is already running using the program icon.
A: please see post # 2:
