| | Innovative use of "alerts" - gimme ideas!
Please Login to Remove!
Okay guys, I know I'm an avid BBer, but I also know that many of you take it to a whole other level!
With all the different profile settings, as well as further alerts provided by Notifier or Message Alerts, I know there's a lot more I could be doing with my 8700. I need some ideas.
So let's get some discussion going and learn from you gurus out there - How do YOU leverage all the profile and alert settings to tweak the way your BB let's you know what's up??
Right now, I just have the basic phone and email alerts set differently based on in- or out-of-holster. I haven't yet gone to the level of customizing specific things for the significant other, or work v. personal email, etc..
(One thing that does bug me is I like to be alerted to new emails when in holster, but if I have the phone set to vibrate+tone while in holster, I can never tell the difference between the two until after the first "beep" (which is two short buzzes...)
