Default need help with profiles

Please Login to Remove!

New here. New BB tour owner. I searched and tried to answer this myself without asking, please help. When I'm in a meeting, I set the Tour for vibrate only. Good so far, because phone calls vibrate and don't ring. However, new emails vibrate also. I would prefer if it doesn't.

I thought I set all of the parameters properly in the ring tone notifications. No luck.

From my searches, I think I need to do something in "Profiles". I can't find this anyway on the Tour. Maybe I'm being a biscuit-head.

So, I would really appreciate step by step instructions on how to do this. Thanks in advance. Dan

Homescreen/options/sounds (little speaker icon)...choose a profile the works for you or create a custom. Custom takes a little time, but is worth it. You can set parameters for all notifications.

The Vibrate profile will cause the device to vibrate on all notifications.

Here is how to edit notifications: How do I edit my notification tones (profiles)? - BlackBerryFAQ

Thanks all. It looks like a custom notification is the ticket. Got it set up the way I like it. It seems a little convoluted to have to do this.

you don't have to do Custom. You pick your best profile, and use it, then you go to profiles/Advanced and you can select what notifications you want for the various messages bin that profile. For meetings I use Phone Off. That leaves the messages coming in but no notifications/LEDs come on at all. I can peek and the phone by turning the screen on when I get a chance to see what I've missed.

Thank you, but I'm not sure I understand. I set up my active profile to give me ring tones for incoming phone calls. I turned off all other notifications (including vibration) as I don't want to be bothered my notifications on email, text, etc. Then when I set the bb to vibrate only, thinking that this would apply to phone calls, it vibrates when I get an incoming email.

In any event, no big deal, as I was able to set up a Custom and it now does what I want.

I thought I had this, but now I am confused again. Here's what I want. In general, I want the phone to ring and no other notifications for email, etc. I got this okay, by setting up a custom profile.

Now here's what's confusing: I set up a separate audible ring tone for my wife and home. Now, when I select my custom notification (phone vib), the audible ring tone for this contact rings (instead of vibrating.)

Once again, here's what I want. In general, my regular ring tone for all calls exept wife and home. Separate audible ring tone for wife and home. No other notifications for email, messages, etc. Now, when I'm in a meeting, I want all calls to vibrate and no other notifications for email, etc.

Sorry, if I'm missing something obvious. I would appreciate help.
