Default BBProfiles?

Please Login to Remove!

I was thinking about the BBLight program and wondered if someone couldn't develop a BBProfile program. What I really need is for the program to change my device from vibrate to ringer when I plug it in to charge it.

This and the fact that the network doesn't update the time when time zones change are really the only two gripes that I have with the Blackberry.

For you all that are smarter than I am, will you please develop BBProfiles?

Good idea but it can't be done. There is a SystemListener that can notify when the BB is charging but Rim does not provide a way to read or change the active profiles. There are several posts at Rim's developer forum asking about this but they either go unanswered or get a response from Rim that it can't be done.

I, for one, would love to someday be able to set a profile in a calendar appointment. So, when the appointment comes, I could get a do not disturb set on the phone, silent incomimg msgs. Even select profiles to allow certain callers/msgs to be alerted during said appointment/meetings. Then, when the meeting appointment has past, it resets to your favorite profile.

Ah, the things we could think up!
