I'm coming from a windows mobile corporate phone, just got my BB 9700 Bold. I have noticed that the vibrator in the 9700 bold doesn't seem that strong when its in the stock holster - I could miss it if I'm moving around or something. I can see the need for a soft "office phone" style ring.
You Should be able to find an app to switch profiles in and out of the holster.
Yes, OS 4 had a very different setup: Choose a ring/sound profile, then choose an event (calendar, messenger Phone, SMS, etc.), and you have two choices:
Out of Holster: (None, Tone, Vibrate, Vibrate + Tone)
LED Flash notification
# of vibrations
In Holster: and same options.
This was very, very useful. Now with OS 5 on the 9700 it's:
Play Sound: (In Holster, Out of holster, Always)
LED: (On, Off)
Vibration [choices of duration and count]
Vibrate: (In holster, Out of holster, Always)
Vibrate with ring tone: (On, Off)
I can't imagine how someone at RIM could have thought that this new system allowed the same flexibility of the old one. It's actually more confusing to figure out what's going to happen with a certain option set, and it's much less useful.
