Default Auto on/off.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi,

I want to set my BB so that it does not notify me of new email between 2300-0700. I thought I could achieve this by setting the "auto on/off" to these times. For some reason the device still alerts me. Is there a setting in "profile" that if selected overides the auto on/off? If not can you think whats causing me the problem?

Any support would be appreciated.

Rob.

BBAlerts will set a profile on a schedule.

But at night, you still need to have your BB set to a silent or phone only profile.

Hi,

I'm not currently using BB alerts - What does the standard BB auto on/off actually do then if you still need to set to silent at night?

I think I'm making a very simple thing very hard......all I want is for my BB not to notify at night (just LED no noise). I have tried loads of different things but cant get any to work as I want?

Any ideas??

Rob.

in the auto on/off screen set it for off @ 2300 and on @ 0700 an the phone will turn off at 2300 and come back on at 0700! Thus no emails, calls or anything! Is this what your talking about? If you want the phone on and not receive emails, I would agree with the profile "Phone Only"!

You still get email, yes. But does it notify you, make noise and vibrate on each email received during that "off" time period?

Yes.....I still get mail!

Does in/out of holster make any difference with auto on/off?

But you don't want it to alert you of the mail... it should not be alerting, ringing and vibrating for new mail during that time.

I don't think you understand what is being said. Any and all email will still be sent to your bb even though it is set to off.

But, it should not make any sound(alert) when you get the email. If you look at your phone it should be off. When it turns on in the morning it will show you all the messages that were received during the off period.

You can't stop it from receiving emails that are sent during the off period.

is yours reacting differently?

Do you have your alarm set to go off during the down time for your bb? This could trigger the phone to come on and may be why your getting emails!

That is always a problem. When you have an alarm set for the time your BB is off it puts the BB back in on mode.
The only way to address this is as glen suggest to stop your alarm during that timw window or do a manual complete turn off of your device.

OFF should be OFF. It should totally power off the device during the hours you have set in the Auto-off option. Mine powers off at 11:pm and turns on at 6:30am. NOTHING happens during those hours EXCEPT if I have set an alarm to wake me at 6am.

Have you tried setting it again and then pulling the battery.

I'm not sure about what some of the others have said about it still getting email during off hours - I believe it is dead-to-the-world and only gets the emails when it powers back up in the morning.

Maybe your device is malfunctioning.

LOL. you still get emails when your device is off. They are not redirected to your BB because it is not in operation. That's all.

Hi,

Apologies for the poor wording of my message. I meant to say the device should not alert/notify of email between these times.

I think the problem could be to do with calendar reminders (I don't use it as an alarm clock). I had auto on/off set to off 2200 on 1030 to test it this morning. The device switched on at 0900 exactly with 8 new mails and three calendar reminders. What are your thoughts?

If you are using the device at the shut off time you can overide the shut off by pressing any button. Once you have done this does that completly prevent that shut off cycle - or will it still auto shut off later once its been idle for some time??

Many thanks.

Rob.

That is it. The calendar reminder is what sets your BB on.

If you are still using your BB at the shut off time, it will override it until the next start time 24h later. the only way to set it off is doing so manually.
