    Hi,
    Sorry if this is a ridiculously easy question, but I have been trying hard to figure out how to change the ringtone for SMS and MMS messages.Anyway to make it louder and vibrate too?I can't find this info anywhere. Please help me out. I don't have the Tmobile data plan yet, if that makes any difference.

    When you go into Profiles. Go into edit. In there you can change the sounds and the ability to vibe then ring. I know it's this way for the 8700 but not 100% sure if its the same on the Pearl. Give it a shot.

    Yes, you just go to your Profiles, then Advanced..., then go to the profile you want and then choose edit from menu...you can edit the sound, loudness, led or no led and vibrate.

    Thank you so much. I finally figured it out. Had never used a BB before.

    What are "Level 1 Messages" in the Profiles list?

    Certain users can be made level 1 , as well as PIN messages, you can do that from your BIS site. They get a different alert then from the profiles setup

    Re: Changing message alert tone on Pearl.

    i would like to say, i am so glad you asked that question becuase it helped me out so much, i was about to buy a 30 dollor 3rd party program called message alerts, becuase i thought that the blackbery did not have the freature to change the alert for the sms messages.

    can anyone tell me if the exeptions ringtone profile interfeirs with the ringtone id, and witch one would over ride it, it seems liek there would be a light bug in the mix

    i believe that execptions take precedence over all others since it is and exception that you yourself created...give it a try by labeling your house phone ringtone ID to one song then making an exception for it with another song...call your cell from your house phone and see what happens...this should answer your question...post back with results

    Re: Changing message alert tone on Pearl.

    I have the answer. I searched forever as well. Not easy to figure out because no manual comes with the Pearl. Here it is: Go to PROFILES>NORMAL> ADVANCED>EDIT>Scroll down to SMS text and in that screen go ahead and make your selections. Try that and it will work.
