I bought a used Verizon Blackberry on Ebay to use for work. I am a plumbing contractor and have found it very useful for keeping track of my appointments and contacts. I think I have figured out most of the quirks with the BB but there are still a couple of things that elude me. First is there anyway to increase the ringtone volume? Even with it all the way up I still don't think its loud enough in the truck or in a noisy location. Anyone else found this to be a problem? Haven't found any good sites for 3rd party software, any good suggestions? Looking for productivity and game software. Any other contractors subscribed, if so how do you like your BB for work and any suggestions for use?

Thanks!

Welcome to the Forums.

I read on here that the ringtone volume on the 8830 is inherently low. You will need to get a LOUD ringtone, try look at www.tuneusin.com, for one place.

For other applications, etc., try the FAQ site here (scroll down to Third Party Applications) and our Aftermarket Software section, much listed there.

Good luck.

Hi,

If someone does know how to increase the ringtone noise, that would be great. Are there any specific loud ringtones you would think would be loud enough?
