Living On The Edge

I live on the very edge of cell phone service. It would be helpful if I could be notified by sound when I have a signal, so if I want to make a call while driving I can pull over and use my phone. Is there a tweak (or app) that would add Phone Signal Connect/Disconnect to the TyTN II?

Thanks.

All my posts recently seem to say the same thing.... but have a look a PhoneAlarm - it has the ability to set an alarm that will warn when you loose signal. I'm not sure whether it can alert you when you get signal, but...

If not, writing a custom lil app to do this would be pretty easy.

Paul,

Yes, you are right. Someone from the XDA forum was kind enough to give me the following MortScript:

Message("Signal Check ON")
while (1)
old_status=status

ss=RegRead("HKLM", "\System\State\Phone", "Signal Strength")

if(ss<31)
status=0
else
status=1
endif

#Message("ss "&ss&" status"&status&" old"&old_status)

if(old_status=0 AND status=1)
PlaySound ("\windows_out.wav")
endif

if(old_status=1 AND status=0)
PlaySound ("\windows\1_in.wav")
endif


Sleep (5000)
EndWhile[/codebox]

I then wrote another to turn off the script:

[codebox]KillScript( "PhoneSignal.mscr" )
Message("Signal Check OFF")

It's amazing what a person can learn from these forums :D .
