Default Some things bothering me with my bold 9000

Please Login to Remove!

If anyone could help I would be most appriciative.

1st thing is the ringer.

When ever I get a call it vibrates for a bit then just gives a few rings so by the time I hear the phone and go to pick it up Ive missed the call ;/

Is there a way to have it ring for longer?

Also the text tone. Can I personalize this like I do my ringtone?

Not sure about the first but yes to the second.
You go to profiles->advanced->normal (for example) then down to sms text then you can change the ringtone

This has been a complaint among BB users for a while now. Theres a program valled Vib & Ring, and another called BBlight that can allow it to ring and vibrate at the same time.

Wirelessly posted (9000)

A jad file is for over the air installation. Click the link for that file using your BlackBerry browser. You need an alx file for desktop manager to work.

As for your sms. Click profilese, advanced, select the profile you use, scroll to sms (click). There you should see the in holster/out of holster options. Browse through till you find one you like. Exit and save.

You can also call your provider and have them change the length. I had a similiar problem and called ATT the guy changed it while we were on the phone. I changed mine to the max time and have had no problems.

Ok, Click profile->advanced then highlight the profile you want to change, click the menu and click edit, this should then brig you to the screen with sms, phone, messages etc, you then click sms text, then it will have
out of holster: tone
ring tone: (whatever the ring tone is) you click that and you can change it.

Most people don't realize that the vibrate ring is a loop. if you have lets say 3 vibrates then a 2 second ringer saying "phones ringing man" it will vibrate 3 times play your ringtone to the end then loop back to vibrate 3 times play ringtone. If you chose a shorter vibrate and a longer ring tone it helps when you don't feel the vibrate.

If you do as before, but go to phone, you can change no. of vibrations to one.
this then may vibrate once, and play the tone for longer.

or of course, just use tone and not vibe, then it will only play the tone.
as you said "by the time you hear it ring" if your only picking it up once you've heard it, then turn vib off.
