    I never noticed it. What is yours set to, none or tone? Switch it and see if you notice any difference. Let us know.

    mine is set to "none". I usually have a nightly conference call. I will test it and see if I notice anything.

    Question Re: "Privacy Alert" in Phone Options -- 8703e w/ Sprint

    Why doesn't the 8700g have that option? I always presumed that the 8700 & 8703e were, in essence the same models, no?

    Nope. The 8700's are the same. The 8703 and 8707 are similar but different.

    About voice privacy
    [FONT=Anvers,Anvers]Depending on your service provider, your BlackBerry® device might support a voice privacy service. Depending on the status of the wireless network, the voice privacy status might change during a phone call. If voice privacy is active, a small "P" icon appears on the Active Call screen and in the device status section of the screen. You can set whether you receive notification when there is a change in voice privacy service during a call.


    odd! never heard of anything like that.

    any idea what techology this may affect? CDMA? GSM? I've studied both and haven't heard of this.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~I also have the privacy alert option on my VZW 8703e. It is under Phone:Options:Sounds:Privacy Alert. The options are either off or tone. I changed it to tone now and will report back if I notice anything different.
