    My razr developed a fault after several successfull years. The earpice became faulty – it was ok on loudspeaker. I upgraded to the new gleam which is good. However I like the audio ‘ submarine ‘ sound that I got from the razr to advise me of a missed message. The gleam just shows a flashing light which is ok but if its in my handbag I wont see it. Is there an option to change the profile to an audible message reminder?
