    New Forum Member and BB Storm Owner

    Advertisement



    Hey everyone...this is my first post here. Anyways, just picked my very first blackberry ever, the storm, about a week ago. Yesterday a fellow bb owner referred me to this site and also brought the attention of the bb messenger, so i started using it.
    Well here is my issue. I went to customize the tones I receive for BB Messenger for the OEM one, and when i get a message, it would vibrate and then about 5-10 seconds later the sound would come on. Now I changed it back to the OEM one, and it still does the same thing. Anyone experiencing the slowness of this as I am?

    That is how BB profiles work. its the same on my pearl and curve. The BB will vibrate first and then ring. I am pretty sure it how it works on all blackberries.

    Hope that helps.

    T- Mo: BB 9700, 8900, 8220
    Sprint: BB 8330, 8830, 8130, 8703, 7250

    But there's a beautiful view of the end of the world from the pier.....

    That's the thing though, before it was "vibrate then tone instantly" now its "vibrate and tone after about 5 seconds"

    So if you want to take or remove the Vibrate feature get into the ring tone profiles.
    Click the speaker in the top left of the screen.
    select "set ring tones/alerts"
    select "instant Messages"
    then either or both "Blackberry messages or New Blackberry Messages"
    on the "vibration" line, click the highlighted box to desired option. On or Off. Choose your preference.
    then press the BB menu key and select "SAVE"
    that should do it.
    good luck and post back if you are still having issues.

    Welcome to the stacks and the fine world of BB.

    ***** oops I kinda misunderstood you apparently. However there is a bit of a delay on the tone from the Vibrate. maybe 3 seconds Maybe for me.

    Welcome to Pinstack.

    I have the same thing with my phone also...it vibrates and then sounds. I've never attributed it as an issue but how it is supposed to function.
