Default message alerts

Please Login to Remove!

Something I've not got to grips with in months of 8700 ownership is

message alerts,
as in, they all sound alike

I see I can attach different tones to alerts but what exactly do these terms mean;
browser
level 1 messages
messages
mms

Browser --) Alerts if you get a browser message (like push weather)
Level 1 Messages --) A message identifed as Level 1 (important)
Messages --) Email
MMS --) Multi Media Message (like SMS but will have sound, images ect..)

Hope this helps

And aren't level 1 messages usually pin to pin? That's what I always thought.

Nope. Level 1 messages are whatever you define them to be. You can opt to make PIN's level 1.

Level 1 alerts allow you to enable alerts only on certain messages or you can opt to have alerts for general messages and a separate alert for Level 1 messages.

You should be able to go into your BIS setup and setup filters to send predefined emails to your BB as level 1. I have pins as level 1 (setup in the BB) and then in BIS sI have a filter that says for all messages from my wife to send as level 1. You can set a different tone on the BB for level 1 messages and in 4.2 OS (which will be out soon for the 8700) they appear in red in the message list.

That interesting. You didn't set any filters to forward any mail as Level 1?

I'm not that technical,

All I want is a distinction between alerts, strange.

Have you installed any programs that notify you of emails, calls, things like that? You could have two different notifications going off from the two different applications: the notification from the OS and another program. Just a thought.

Default No

G-mail offer a 'notifier' on PC set up which is a taskbar envelope

blue- or not blue,

but on the BB there is nothing,


just as it came out the box,

In fact I'm loathe to load apps, for fear of cramming it....
