    an app to schedule profile changes?

    Advertisement



    Looking for two apps…

    1) A way to schedule profile changes. I would like to set my “work “ profile to be enabled M-F 7am-5:30pm, after that change to phone only. My old Skytel two way pager(four years ago.) had this built in.


    2) A way to schedule the browser to launch pages at a given time. I read mobile.news.com every morning, if I could have the BB get the page ahead of time it would be great.


    I have looked for both of these and have had no luck. Thanks.

    MarkBerry, Welcome to PinStack.

    Haven't seen any of these two apps. Sounds like an oportunity for a developer.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with this problem or your BB.

    I do some vbscript and perl script. maybe I need to learn some java. I seen the blackberry developer tool before, back at ver 3.6. Rather then download and install it, do you know where I could search the bb dev info online to at least see if touching / changing the profile is possible?

    This is a really great web site.

    Thanks.

    Its not possible to programatically change profiles. RIM cares a bit too much for our security. They won't create such apps and won't let others create it either.

    I'd pay good money to be able to schedule profiles to be changed at a certain day/time...if anyone develops this, please keep us updated.

    I on fact was just searching for a profile scheduler myself.changing profiles is easy enough, until you forget to set it back!

    The auto on-off feature just isn't powerful enough for me, and it considers Friday night a weeknight, and Sunday night a weekend night. Too bed there isn't a 'school nights' setting Honestly I'm surprised this area of the BB isn't more developed.

    Set a daily reminder In your calendar. That way, it will go off everyday for as long as you want it to. My bb doesn't consider Fri anything but a weekday, same as Sunday is the weekend, how is yours seeing them as anything else? Utilizing what you already have installed on your device is smart bb'ing.~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    Re: an app to schedule profile changes?

    RE scheduled profile changes - I would like to add to this debate. I have an old Nokia which is perfect for this. If you are somewhere where you need the phone to be quiet you switch it to vibrate and it asks you how long you want that profile to stay active, so you set it for however long you need it and it reverts back automatically.
    Now I have a blackberry 7100v and this is the only thing lacking in its setup. I am forever setting it to silent in meetings etc and then forgetting to turn it back on to loud afterwards and always missing important calls. I don't know why this would affect security if the application of the setting was restricted to the phone, although I could see the benefit of linking it to a calender. If you are made aware of security implications it should be up to you whether or not to implement a facility
