English term or phrase:alert
ICQ alerts, SMS alerts on computer or mobile phone when message arrives.
Explanation: As for this term, I would suggest that you stick to the English version since this is widely used and accepted by Filipinos. Nevertheless, there's a near equivalent of that term - "hudyat" - meaning a warning signal (alerts warn you that you have messages coming in, etc.). "Handa or alisto" means ready which is not appropriate on this context.
