Don't sit too long - SitSatSat mobile java app helps remind/alert you
I have this neck pain problem myself and made this little j2me (for java-enabled phones) app long ago - to remind every 20 minuts with an alert sound:
I forgot about it for so long until recently my neck pain increased.
I tried different chairs, sitting positions, but none solved the problem if you still sit for too long without moving periodically. The neck pain was much less during holidays or days I didn't sit coding.
So I remembered this SitSatSat app, searched for it (I remember I deployed it on GetJar.com long ago), installed it on my current development phone: Nokia 6120 - stand up, move your neck in all directions when it alerted - it helped reduce my neck pain a lot at the end of the day.
The main thing is that the alerting app actually can't help you at all, you need to help yourself: move you neck, stand up regularly when it alerts. Just keep in mind that "your health is important too!".
