Default SMS Tone+Vibrate Not Functional [7520]

Please Login to Remove!

I've just started using a Blackberry 7520, so I'm still figuring things out.

One thing that really has me confused is receiving Pages. I understand that you use "Profiles"/"SMS" to set the notification type for when a SMS arrives.

HOWEVER,
- the option "Vibrate+Tone" does not work. It only vibrates.
- Number of Beeps. What's this for..doesn't seem to do anything.
- Eventhough the LED light flashes, there is no visual notification on the screen that a SMS has arrived. The LED flashing goes away, when you open ANY message in your email..not necessarily the one that was an SMS.

Am I missing something or are the above items broken/not implemented.

thanks for any feedback,
Stu

I think there's a bug with SMS alerting in that version, if I remember right...

I guess you'll have to wait until the 4.0.0.185 or 4.0.0.219 available to GPRS BlackBerries, also become available on the iDEN BlackBerries.

Thanks for your feedback. I have sent a message to Nextel support..I'll see if I get any response.

Kind of interesting to find out that my old Nextel-Motorola had better pager functionality than the Nextel-BB7520. I'm oncall quite a lot so this feature is important to me.

Is there any special program (ie download) that you use to notify you that you received a page/SMS. Something that pops up on the screen would be ideal. My old nextel used to say stuff like "2 calls/1 pages" missed, automatically on the screen.
