Never tells me when she needs to go

My 2.5 year old daughter has no problem peeing on the potty, and she's even pooed in the potty a few times, but I have to tell her that it's time to use the potty. She never tells me when she needs to go, and even when I ask her, she'll reply no. Today she even peed in her panties about 1 minute after I asked her if she needs to go.
Any thoughts on how to get her to tell me when she needs to use the potty? She knows what to do, what to say and when - she practices with her potty doll all the time.
I've tried not bugging her about it and letting her tell me in her own time, but that has just resulted in accidents. She doesn't seem to mind the feeling of wet panties (she pulls off dirty ones). She doesn't tell me when she's had an accident either; it's like she thinks that if she doesn't mention it, it will go away. LOL
We've been actively potty training for several weeks. She wears panties around the house and our neighborhood, and pull-ups when we go out. She can stay dry for long periods of time (sometimes overnight), and she's excited when she uses the potty.
Any advice would be appreciated - Thanks! :)
