Exclamation how can I get faster SMS notifications?

When I get an SMS.. my phone first lights up.. then after about a second or two chimes in and shows the SMS notification. So it knows that it has an SMS, but then takes another two seconds to sound the alert. Anyone know if there is any way I can make this faster? I mean.. what makes it take 2 seconds when it ALREADY KNOWS I have an SMS? Is it loading the WAV file or something? Is there a way I can speed this up???

Not sure. It is normal, but annoying. Let's face it, windows sucks for phones as an elegant solution.

It is fun, but a lot of pain. Kind of like some women.

Re: how can I get faster SMS notifications?

This has to do with the carriers towers and the device and the communication between the two. You might be able to adjust the polling on the device on how fast or soon it talks with the towers but I doubt it because mine is adjusted that way and I have the same issue was you sometimes.

Re: how can I get faster SMS notifications?

Literally you're seeing normal cellphone behavior. The only difference being WinMo needing to turn on all the lights after it gets the wakeup command from the tower.

Lower your SCI (slot cycle index - google it) to reduce the lag between the checks for tower wakeups (incoming call, incoming sms)

Also remember that if you've got an active EVDO connection, the tower and handset have to negotiate breaking that link and switching back to 1X - that can introduce additional lag - again that's not WinMo specific...
