Default Comming from Nokia to BB, some features missing?

Please Login to Remove!

Im using Nokia whole my life, and now have a blackberry curve, meeting following issues:

1. On a Nokia phone, when a calendar item has a reminder, it keeps beeping untill you disable it. On BB it stops after 3 beeps. Can you set this to have the same beheavior?

2. When I pluggin my BB, it asks if I want to charge or have usb storage, can you set it to automaticly choose charge?

3. Is there a alarm clock that requires you to typ a word or something? The standard one is easily deactived by accident.

Thank you!

1. No. The alarm reminds you with a limited (not user-configurable) number of chimes and displays a pop-up on the screen. I would consider the Nokia way too intrusive.

2. You *might* get the option when you plug into your computer to set the behavior you select as the default choice. This may be a setting of BlackBerry Desktop Software. I use a desktop charging stand and it just charges. If you plug into a pc via usb and want to update your software, how will you choose the proper connection to do this if your default choice is "charge only"?

3. No. To cancel an alarm that is ringing you shouldn't have to enter a password just to make it stop. To turn off an alarm you have set you need to open the alarm clock app and manually change it. I can't see that happening by accident.

1. Maybe other people want intrusive reminders

2. On Nokia you can select a default and change it when you need.

3. I meant when the alarm is going off, to wake up for example.
