Handy Tip For Bold Owners
As a matter of practicality, we're going back and forth between profiles depending upon the environment we're in.
For example, while in a business meeting or the theater, our handhelds are usually put on vibrate.
The 7xx series had a very handy time-saving short cut which enabled one to depress and hold the # button while exiting the theater or meeting, and your device would be restored to the previous profile.
RIM hasn't provided for this great feature on the 8x series, and I don't know why.
Enjoy it on your Bold
That is an interesting find. Thank you for that.
I THINK it was possible with the Curve with 4.2, but lost it in 4.5. I think, not sure though.

It's a really great feature, and I miss it on my Curve
I don't have a Bold yet. Are you say the Bold has this?
Well the 4.5 Deff doesnt have it, I just tried and it calls "#" and then call fails

Thanks for the great tip, definitely something that I can see myself using day to day.

Wow, if you learn something new everyday, I just got my quota. A very handy tip. Thanks!
Disable "dial from the home screen", and it will work!

Once you have done this select save and give it a try again!
Never mind it does not matter on the BOLD; it works regardless if it is disabled or not!
