My BB8900 has a default sound for when an email arrives that I would like to change. How do I change the alert?

Question Removing the Vibrating alert

How can i remove the vibration notification when a new email comes in. I cant seem to set the number to zero under the Notification options. All i want is to keep the LED blinking?

Highlight and select the Speaker Icon in the top left (the themes selector). Then go to Advanced Options and press Menu/Edit. You can then change the alert types - bear in mind there are 2 settings, in holster and out. You can change vibrate options and all sorts of other things. Even though vibrate number is shown, at the top if it is set to Tone only then this is irrelevant.
