I think you are right, there is no beep to remind you of a missed call. However, when the phone is closed, you can hit the volume rocker and the external display will light up. From there, it can tell you that you missed a call.
I am not sure about the beep to remind you of a missed call. havent used the phone in a while. either that or I am mixing up the beep that motorola phones use for a missed call.
Good luck. Hope that somewhat helps..
I recently purchased the VX 8300. Overall, I am quite happy with this phone since I just use it for talking and dont care about txt messaging or downloading stuff. However, a couple of things that annoy me- If you miss a call, there does not seem to be any way of knowing it unless you physically open the phone. There is no beep/flashing light that lets you know if you missed a call. I am missing something or its just one of the lousy drawbacks on this phone? Also, there is no external display on the phone which is kind of primitive too. Anyway to change the settings for the display or missed calls? Thanks!
