Exclamation Profile Changer ....

Please Login to Remove!

I have several daily meetings wherein I would like my profile to automatically be changed to vibrate during those time and then automatically switch back to loud for the remainder of the day. What program out there will enable me to have this done?

There are 3 apps that I know of, in no particular order:

RingScheduler by CellAvant - RingScheduler (TM) - Utilities BlackBerry Apps

Profiler / Profiler Pro / Location Profiler by ToySoft - ProfilerPro - Automate sound profile switching - Utilities BlackBerry Apps

BlackBerry Profile Switcher by WCS Software - BlackBerry Profile Switcher

Please note: all three have the same limitation, profiles cannot change automatically while the device is holstered, keylocked, device locked or in Standby mode. The current RIM API's do not allow for direct profile switching, so the only way around it is to use Keystroke Injection (to simulate keypresses) which cannot be accomplished programatically while the device is locked/holstered/etc. However, each of these programs does alert you via vibrate/sound/LED that it wants to change profiles, so that you can unholster/unlock the BB.
