Default Timed profiles

Please Login to Remove!

I have searched high and low for something that will allow me to switch profiles based on hour of the day (and weekday / weekend), or even better on the basis of calendar events (automatic silent mode in meetings etc).

Incredibly this obviously useful feature seems to be impossible to find, and I have seen posts in forums dating back to 2005 where this was requested.

Can it really be that such an important feature is still not incorporated or addressed by 3rd party software vendors after several years?

I have seen suggested workarounds with WebMessenger Message Alerts (only works for SMS and email) and Blackberry Alerts, none of which however fit the purpose.

Anyone out there has a solution for this!?

BBAlerts doesn't do this. I had this capability on my HTC device and miss it a lot. It would be nice a very popular BB application in my opinion. I haven't seen anything like this on the BB however.

I would look at such an app. as well-I've searched to no avail for something to do the automatic profile switching for the Blackberry.

I used Phonealarm on my previous phone (Moto Q) and got to like it a lot.

However, the 8830 without this program is still wayyy better that the Q with it.

I'll probably get BBalerts anyways, it looks like one of the best I've seen so far.
