Default Custom alert tones override Vibrate Profile

Please Login to Remove!

The other night I went to see "Contaigen" in the theater. Decent flick, excellent cast, so-so story. Anyway, being the considerate movie goer that I am, upon walking into the theater I set my Profile to Vibrate so as not to disturb others. Naturally my wife texts me with some banal thing in the middle of the show, and to my horror my 9930 chimed like normal.

I double-checked that it was still on Vibrate, then tried Silent. Next text message from wifey-pooh did the same thing. It chimed like when I'm using the Normal profile! I have no custom profiles, just some custom alert tones for certain contacts. I haven't gotten a message from a contact with the standard alert tone while on Vibrate or Silent so I have no idea what will happen then.

Is this a known issue? Do custom alert tones override the noiseless profiles?

Use the "active profile" feature for custom contact sound profiles. It should work when you go silent, if your vibrate and or silent profile has been setup silence the alerts. I had the same issue in OS6 on my 9780 and fixed it this way.

It's working by design. I had exceptions like that setup back on my 8330. That is one feature I missed when moving to Android.

I'm rusty. I had been using an Android device (Evo 4G) for a while and got bogged down with work-arounds trying to "BlackBerryify" it. When I went back to BlackBerry I kept it pretty simple, using the basic functions with little customization. I used to be a custom profile demon.

It's a bit complicated to comprehend...but once you get it, it's pretty simple!

There's the right way, the wrong way, and the BlackBerry way. If you stand back and look at it with a soft focus it all starts to make sense.
