Default Vibrate alerts

Please Login to Remove!

New user here. Is it possible to have the 7250 use different alerts based on message type (email or text) or on filter type (subject, sender, etc)?

For example, I receive emails frequently that do not need to be responded to immediately. Others, I need to respond to quickly. I would like to set up the unit so that if I get a certain type of message, whether it be based on message type or a keyword to send me an alert (vibrate). If it doesn't meet the criteria, do nothing but go to the inbox.

Is this possible?

Unfortunately the alerting is fairly primitive; what you see in the Profiles (in holster/out of holster) and "Level 1 Messages" (a higher priority) is about it. I am unaware of any third party alert management software for the BB.

It is not possible to set criteria alerts, only message alerts, phone alerts, task and calendar alerts, ect.

I purchased a program called "Message alerts" which offers the ability to set up rules similar to outlook. You can download it from the website here and I HIGHLY recomend it. Without it my BB would be worthless because it would be notifying all day and night for low priority e-mails and autogenerated reports.
