Default Profile change based on Cell ID (location)

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

Anybody came accross application that allows to change the profile of notification based on cell ID. I used a simillar one on Nokia that based on the location read from BTS (cell id) was switching the profile so e.g. when I got to work it would switch to low volume notofications and when I was leaving the office it would switch to laud notifications.

I am not aware of that technology for BBs. Hopefully, someone will provide you with a different response.

It's not really a lot of technology that needs to be involved. Just need a simple program that will read the Cell ID every several minutes and based on this Cell ID and configured Cell IDs change the profile... Cell ID is a standard information every phone reads from the network in order to be able to make phone calls.

Hmm, haven't seen one. You've already tried Googling?

I spent some time googling. The only thing that pops-out is the program that changes profiles based on time which is not exackly the same :(

Seems like it would be a neat feature. Not much good for me though .......... I live where I work (property management, I live on site). Maybe they could make it so it knows when I take the elevator up to my apartment.
