I purchased an iPhone 3G over the weekend, and have become pretty proficient with it in just the last couple fo days. But I can't seem to find help with this issue:

I'm wondering if there is a setting somewhere that causes the phone to beep every so often if you miss a call or text message (however, I would find this more handy for misssed calls).

Currently, if I someone calls me, the phone will ring and then the voicemail kicks in. However, after this happens, the phone stays silent. Most phones that I have owned in the past will beep, say every 3 mintues or so, to let meknow that I missed a call. My iPhones does not do this, so if I miss a call, I'll never know about it until I click the home button and see the notification that I missed a call.

I find it a little inconvenient to have to click on my phone each time I come back to my office after being gone for a while to see if I missed a call. I'd much rather it beep at me to let me know that I did. I've gone through all the menus, but did not come across any function to control this.

Intelliscreen. But it only works via jailbreak.

jailbreak it and there are a few apps out there that can do this for you! good luck
Any ones besides intelliscreen that is good? Intelliscreen has tons of apps that arent needed, how about 1 app that just does the reminder notifications? Thanks!

Status Notifier will notify you on your status bar with an icon and you can also set reminders.

There's not a NON Jailbreak App that will do what you want. Apple doesn't want Apps running in the background like that (except it's own). So the only way to get a reminder app is to JB. There's also an app called Remind Me that I've seen.
