hi all!!  i am wondering if there is a setting somewhere i can't find, or possibly another way i can set my text message alert tone to repeat periodically until the message is opened.  if i don't hear the alert when the message arrives, it may be an hour or more until i look at the screen and notice it.  thanks in advance for any help!

Pretty sure the built-in sms doesn't have this option.

I use Go sms Pro,  free from the market. Much better than the standard small app,  many more options to personalise including repeating notifications and widgets.

That is an iPhone feature that was made better on the S3 and S4 with motion technology.

You can change notification sounds and volumes but if you want full customisation, a third party app will enable you to do that and as cookm75 said, Go SMS is a good app to start with.
