    I don't know if anyone else has had this problem, but I have been a long time user of Palm Pilots, and then Treos starting with the 180.

    I have had a 180, 270, 600, 650 and now 680.

    In all those models (except the 680!) when something vibrates such as a calendar alarm it continues to vibrate for a while.

    On the 680 - it only vibrates once! If the phone is not perfectly on my hip I never hear it. I have been late for many meetings now as a result of not hearing the reminder I have become dependant on. Also, it is now useless as an alarm as a single vibrate will not wake me up (and audible does not work with a young baby nearby).

    Anyone know how to hack the system, or an alarm program that allows multiple vibrating? I have tried a lot and they crash the 680 or don't help, so only suggest if you think it will actually work.

    In the past TreoAlarm was great - but that locks the vibrate on the 680 and I have to reset the phone to stop it!

    Help!

    I recommend Butler. Its Attention Grabber function can make up for all sorts of alarm notification deficiencies.

    Thanks very much. This does solve 1/2 of the discussion (and then some). The alarm features are great.

    Seems like a great program so far.

    But, it does not seem to be fixing the calendar alarms - despite saying it does. Not sure if there is any trick to it.

    Have you used this before?

    Thanks anyway - it has solved half the problem at least.

    If you set the Attention Grabber to "Nag me if I miss: Attention Manager", then it should sound/vibrate after your anemic calendar alarm has sounded - if you haven't already responded.

    Also - you can check out using DateBk as your calendar program. If you then tell DateBk to handle the alarms, you can program it how many times to vibrate when there is an alarm.
