    I can't figure out how to make my 8703e ring or blink when I get a pin message. Can anyone help or is this possible?

    If your profile is set to normal, it should do those things by default unless you edited that profile.

    i have it set on normal and it's not working. i may have edited the settings. i don't know where to fix it, but think i've changed all to sound and blink.

    yes, pin message makes sound and blinks, but bb messenger doesn't.... it only puts an icon (that i cannot see without a magnifying glass) on the top. is there any way to get this to blink?

    For whatever profile you are using, adjust the Messenger - New Message, and the Messenger - Alert settings. Those probably have the notification turned off.

    Thanks all for your efforts, but none worked. Maybe it ain't supposed to, but it blinks for everything else.

    My BB only has this green light blinking frequently. The green blinking light is an indication of wireless connections to the carrier. Everytime I get a message, PIN, SMS, or email, nothing Blinks. My 7750 blinks in red when I get any message the 8703e doesn't as far as I know. I'm a newbie with this..still trying to find out more. I have no way of knowing if I have a message or not unless I literally look at it. I'm deaf so, I have it set on Vibrate.

    You can edit the profiles to make it blink on everything but the pin messages. At least, I haven't been able to get my 8703 to blink an alert when I receive a pin.

    I'm getting in the habit of doing that once every couple of days since several forum members recommend it.

    Glad you got it working!

    I'll start doing that. Guess it's like restarting your 'puter every few days. Just to let it know who's boss!
