With Blackberry default alarm, you cannot set alarm on a specific weekday. However, you can install MyAlarm.. it is a 3rd party app.

Go to the AfterMarket Software section of this forum http://www.blackberryforums.com/afte...n-tracker.html and search for "MyAlarm". you should get one and that would satisfy you needs.

Here is the direct link to the software ... MyAlarm

I just forgot to tell one more thing.. the first time My Alarm starts an alarm, you have to allow both network connections and file connections.

hmm gonna try the my alarm thing..desktop manager is 300mb ugh

If you're running OS 4.5 or higher (maybe even 4.3), MyAlarm will ask for you permission every time an alarm accesses a tone that is located on your micro SD card. It won't do this if you just use the included tone, but if you want to use your own on your SD card, then this would obviously be very frustrating as it wouldn't ring. You can try it yourself. You will find out that in order to stop it from asking, you have to enable your firewall. Options > Security Options > Firewall > enable.

ummmm..can't belive im the only one that knows this

You can set an alarm though your calander.

Open calander - and select "new alarm" through all that you can schedule when you want it to go off.

pretty easy

well all is well with myalarm...i just set it to go off at 6:40 every weekday xcept for thursday. i than set a seperate alarm within myalarm to go off at 7:40 on thursday. didnt have to accept permission or nything? idk it went off this morning without problems so im happy.
highly recommended app :D
(mods can close)

brentcizek 03-04-2009 07:42 PM

no 3rd party app is needed if you schedule alarms through you're calander...but whatever

Yes you are right. In the calendar we can create 2 weekly alarms (Mon, Tue, Wed & Fri) at 6:40AM and the other just on Thu at 7:40AM. Good that you brought this point up !

bem.atsma 03-04-2009 09:10 PM

Yeah, the key is to set up weekly alarms. Then during the process you can specify which days of the week you want the alarm on.

is the down side to this.. you can't change the ring of that alarm? cuz i can't seem to find it :/

brentcizek 03-18-2009 06:54 AM

actually - if you go into the clock - and go to "options" you can change the alert for the alarm.

You need to play around a little! I figured this all out within an hour of having my BB! :smile:

Let us know if you can't get it.

You were pretty quick.. when I got my 1st BlackBerry it took me a longer time to figure out how things are.

I have an 8100 pearl. Sorry, but my calendar doesn't seem to have the "new alarm" option. Do I have to update something? I'm a newbie and appreciate your patience.

I don't belive i had the option in my old 8320, so you might be out of luck.

Nate1286 04-05-2009 04:42 AM

Use the calander
 
All you have to do is go into your calendar and have an event for ever weekday morning accept and have it at when ever you want to wake up, and have it last 5 minutes or something so it doesn't screw up your others stuff, and set the event for weekly and it will be there every week, and do the same thing for Thursdays accept change the time to 740

hope this helped.
