    I'm guessing you mean a notification sound when you receive a new voicemail? Unfortunately it shares the same tone as your SMS messages, so if you have set that, then you have set your voicemail tone as well.

    Except for the fact that voicemail notification uses a special SMS Message to perform the notification.

    Re: how to change voicemail tone?

    If you're willing to switch to a different voicemail provider, there are ways around this.

    For instance SimulSays' visual voicemail client provides its own profile entry, which allows you to set a unique sound for voicemail notifications.

    Most other voicemail providers offer notification via email (YouMail for instance). So you can set it to send notification to your BlackBerry email address, which will give you instant notification via push. Of course, now you have the problem of it sharing the same sound with your other email alerts. A couple different ways around this are:

    • Set up a filter in your BIS settings to mark your voicemail notification emails as level 1 messages, and set a unique sound for your level 1 notifications in your Profiles.
    • Create a new Gmail account to just use for voicemail emails, then set up your voicemail provider to send notifications to this email address, and set the Gmail account up with your BIS, which will create a new entry in your profiles which you can assign a unique sound.

    unfortunately a new profile wont help much, since it's the same tone as a SMS message. There is no seperate setting just for a voicemail tone.

    How do I do this? I don't see anywhere in BIS or in my Messages folder under Options. Thanks!
