Default 7230 Vibrates for no apparent reason.

Please Login to Remove!

Hi everyone,

I have a strange issue that I hope someone can help with!

We have a blackberry user (7230, BES, no non-standard software apps) whose device seems to randomly vibrate for no reason at all. There is no alarm set, no new email, no phonecall, no SMS, and seemingly, no pattern to it. Now I have heard rumours of IM software doing this, but we have no such apps installed.

Any idea what this could be? I wonder if the device is just faulty.


Any help would be appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

I had this problem and found it was browser setting. I had it set to buzz in my profile setting, I turned it off and fixed the problem.

Thanks for the help!

You definitely put me on the right track... it looks like it was the Level 1 Message options. What are Level 1 Messages, anyway? Just network traffic?

Level 1 is a filter that you can set to help you differentiate "important" messages. You can, for example, treat PIN to PIN messages as "Level 1" so that you can make the LED blink, or whatever. It's just a differentiator.

Interesting, so APB's are considered PIN's? If we we got rid of Level 1 Message notification, APB's wouldn't have as big of an effect.
