Default Profile except 7130

Please Login to Remove!

Sorry I cannot find if this was posted but I will ask anyways...

When you want to set a custom ringtone for someone in your address book it makes an exception to the profiles. Cool I understand that.

But if you change your profile to lets say vibrate it still keeps those exceptons going......

Now I know I can go and uncheck all of them but that is a pain. I know this is not a device mode for this type of stuff but is there something that I am missing to make this easier?

Again sorry if this was already posted was not sure what to search for....

From whsbuss:
Ok I spend some time thinking through this and finally resolved the profile exception issue.

Here's what I want:
- to switch to vibrate profile so all notifications/calls vibrate in and out of the holster. I always use the Normal profile except for meetings

Here's what I did:

1. cleared all exeptions currently set.
2. in the Profile screen, click TW (trackwheel) and select New Exception
3. give the exception a name (Calls from John), scroll to the From field, click TW and select John from the Address Book
4. scroll to Use Profile field and select Normal Profile

Now when I select the vibrate profile (or use the shortcut hold-#) the custom ringtone selected for John just vibrates!!! When I switch to Normal is uses John's selected ringtone.

Hope this helps those who have struggled with this issue.

For my own edification, is the process for the 7130 different than that for the 8700, as explained in this thread?

Message for RIM...ringtone exception petition...

Thanks for your Help.

rcbjr,

you seem to be on the same page as me.. so no, i don't think the process is any different between the 2 models.
