DontForget (Missed SMS,MMS,Call,e-mail etc. reminder) and more...

missed call

I downloaded the dontforget software. I can't get it to use a wav. file that I made as a missed call alert. It only vibrates. I can't even use the regular reminder option to let me use any music file as a missed call alert.What software can I use to have different backgrounds?. Thank you

You were right, I was not going far enough. According to sys info I have 62.81 mg storage memory free and 22.11 mb program memory free.

Could you help me with his installation instructions? I copy the contents of the beta zip folder to my storage card in a new folder in Program Files. Then how do I activate the program? And once it is installed how do I include it in the start menu so it is active when I boot up every morning?

Thanks.
Use File Explorer to click on the DontForgetAdmin Program to configure the settings and get it going.

To get DontForgetAdmin and DontForget file into the start menu, do the following:

Plug your phone in and sync it.
Click Explore in ActiveSync.
Navigate to the program.
Right-Click it and Create Shortcut.
Rename the shortcut to be something more friendly.
Right-Click the shortcut....click CUT.
Navigate to Windows/StartMenu
Paste the shortcut there.

To have it start-up automatically when you boot, place the shortcut for DontForget (not Admin) in the Windows/StartUp folder

Hope this helps.
 
It seems that Dont Forget often turns off my Cingular 3125 when I reboot. I turned it off every night and it takes a long time now to boot up and more than once noticed that the phone was turned off.
Is that a bug of the beta?
 
I don't understand why we are limited in editing a message. I tried to edit the last one but because the edit button was there but after writing it was taken to a page that said it was over the 120 minute mark. So I apologize for 3, yes 3, messages in a row. I can't get used to not being able to edit a message when there is no response to my post.
Anyway, before seeing the instructions by VinceClortho I had done essentially the same thing (copy/paste rather than cut/paste and not rename) but only copied the shortcut to the StartUp menu. I have now followed the posted instructions and have shortcuts in both StartMenu and StartUp folder and can't tell any difference in the way the program performs.
So is this extra shortcut needed? Does it make a difference in how the program performs? I can't tell any difference in the boot up time, how the features work (although my phone was one when I did the soft boot), or the amount of free memory.
 
How exactly to you navigate to the Windows/StartMenu? I can't seem to find that anywhere when using the "explore" feature in activesync.
 
I am not setup at the moment to go through details, but one way is to use the file Explorer in the phone itself. The other way would be to use explore device while connected then click on the device which will show you the folders.

You need to make sure that in Windows Exporer you're showing "Hidden Files". You should be able to find it then.

As to the difference between placing the shortcut in Start menu and StartUp, I beleive, but am not absolutely positive, that Start Menu just places it visually in the menu, and StartUp will acutally run the program when you boot up the phone. That is the way it's worked for me.

Yes, I see you are right again.

So I decided to delete the shortcut in the Start Menu to dontforget.exe to the adm.exe and now when I click on the icon I can easily manage the prefereances.

When I put the adm.exe in the Start Menu I left the shortcut to the dontforget.exe in the Start Up folder but unlike when I had just the latter this time DontForget did not work. So I just removed the shortcut in the Start Menu since unless I can get the icon of the admin.exe file there it is no use to me.
 
I don't see in the DontForget options any way to disable the blinking light other than to alert me for a message. Am I missing something? Can you point me to the instructions for this?
 
at the very bottom of the choices
is something about the speed of the blinking light
you can pick 0 ...
then the green only blinks when you miss something
I'm still hoping he fixes the blue blinker in 2.XX or 3.0
 
Mac user needs help

I would like to use this application, but I have a Mac. I can't run .exe files. I can however, mount my phone and copy file to the folders and storage card using MissingSync. Can someone tell me if there is a way to load this program without a PC install?
 
I started geting the infamus 3125 reboot after a few days of installing it. After I removed it, I've yet to have that problem. I guess the light is not that much of an issue for me.
 
I can't get the program to install. I downloaded the program, unzipped it with winrar. I copied the entire "Don't Forget" folder on the storage card under a new folder I created called "Program Files."
 
Has anyone got the "Limit Repetition Rate" function to work? I'm using the program on a Cingular 3125 and when I check the box and put in another limit, like 2, it doesn't work. The alerts just keep coming and when I go back to the admin page that feature is unchecked. Am I doing something wrong?
 
See this thread towards the end for some guidance on DontForget. There is a cab file avaialble for the latest beta version and all you have to do is drop it onto your device or sd card and everything will install for you. It says you can just install over old versions but I had some problems with that (might have been my own fault) that caused me to have to remove the program and all registry entries before I got it working right. The new version works as advertised for me on both the S620 and the 3125.

I had the old version and I installed the new one like the web site says. When I check limit repetitions and save, it doesn't work. When I go back to the options its unchecked, so something must be wrong. Hopefully this will be fixed in a later version. But overall its a great program.
 
Try contacting the developer. He is very responsive.

Please, run the Admin program, check and write down the version from the About dialog. Then switch the "repetition rate" option ON and choose "Apply and Exit". After that, please export all values of the HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\SoftImage\DontForget key from the device's registry, and send the *.reg file to my e-mail. hujer(at)softimage(dot)cz
