    Automatic Profile Switcher

    Advertisement



    Hi guys, I'm new to the BlackBerry world (convert from Windows Mobile), and so far I love the BlackBerry. However, I haven't been able to find an equivalent to the automatic profile switcher in Windows Mobile (takes you from normal to silent profile when you have a calendar appointment, and switches you out back to normal after the appointment is over). Is there an equivalent on the BlackBerry that I'm missing?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to PinStack, turanuk.

    This option does not exist in the included apps from RIM. I don't know if a 3rd party app to accomplish this exists or not.

    Let us know if there is anything else we can do to help with your BlackBerry.

    Welcome aboard!

    I used this function quite a lot on my nokias days, I have searched everywhere for an application like this with 3rd parties and no luck at all.

    Cheers

    Okay well it's good to see that others have had this issue as well: I wonder why BB doesn't include it. Thanks for the welcomes guys.

    I think I'm going to take a look at the BlackBerry Dev stuff and see how easy it is to write some kind of polling program for this.

    You could use the holster mode and a BB holster or modified pouch (my service tech did that for his) to change it everytime you put it in the holster/pouch. It isn't exactly what you are looking for but will do the same thing for you.

    Thanks for the suggestion Amigotek, but ideally it would stay in the case all the time, and the profile switching would be independent of that. It just seems to me like this is a simple feature that BB hasn't decided to put in.

    I loved this on my older Nokias but the Symbian Nokias seem to be missing this feature lately. I always had to use third party apps.
    I've missed it dearly, but also haven't had many meetings in the last couple of weeks. I just know that this next week in church service my phone going to go off or something.

    He's looking for a way to have profiles switch on a schedule. Either by a daily, weekly, etc. schedules, or just one that recognizes when he has an appointment and changes the profile and then back after the appointment.

    The idea is so that you never have your phone ring whn in a meeting and you never forget to take it off vibrate.

    yeah exactly, it's especially critical because the pearl has a bit of a weak vibration compared to my old phone, I hate missing calls because of forgetting to take it off vibrate.
