View Full Version : Blackberry 7100 Vibrate+Tone

08-04-2006, 08:32 AM

I have just got a Blackberry 7100, which vibrates for a number of seconds before making any noise, when set to 'Vibrate+Tone'.

Can I change any settings so it plays the tone straight away, as I keep missing calls.

TIA, Mike.

In Profiles, select Tone

Thanks for the reply. What if I want it to both vibrate and play a tone at the same time, immediately after ringing?

I do not believe there is a Tone / Vibrate setting - sorry.

Under the profile settings, there is an option "Vibrate+Tone", which I assumed would cause the phone to vibrate and play a tone at the same time.

However, it vibrates once initially and then plays the selected tone as well as virbating, however I have missed a number of calls because of the initial vibrating only. I want it to vibrate and play a tone immediately, im sure some other Blackberry users with the 7100 model have had the same problem.

Yes, I have noticed the same where it vibrates first before the tone comes on. I deal with it.

It's not a problem - it is Vibrate, then ring the tone. There is no simultaneous vibrate/tone option on any BlackBerry. It is not a 7100 issue. It's just the way it works. Vibrate, then tone.

Call your service provider and ask for a ring extension. This will give you some extra time.
