    It's obscure since they don't have a "voice mail" notifer label in the settings menu.

    Under the sound profiles, it's the notifier for "SMS"

    Go there, change the notifier for SMS to what you want and you are good to go.

    And remember from now on that the "voice mail" notifier is under "SMS." It took me about 1/2 hour of testing, about a month ago, to figure out that it was the SMS label that sets the voice mail notifier, so don't feel bad about not knowing it.

    I feel your frustration. I really like my Pearl, it is my first Blackberry. However, the manual is next to worthless.

    Back then the phone had only been out for a few days, I don't think anyone knew much on Sept. 16.

    After reading this forum and trying to find it myself, I was lost also. But reading the manual sure helps! Here are the instructions:

    Hit the MENU key
    Go to PROFILES
    scroll all the way down to the ADVANCED option and select it
    now, whatever profile you use highlight that one and hit the MENU key
    select EDIT
    now you can change each alert type here
    make sure you save the changes and that should be it

    But VMail Tones have been the same as SMS for at least since Jan 2005, and I would imagine a lot longer than that. VMail Notifications use the same control channel as SMS, so it is logical that they have the same ringtone. Heck, it may just be a specialized SMS message with some unique Control characters embedded.

    hope this helps

    As I recall my 7100t had SMS as that which you set for notification of voice mail . I had that phone for 18 months.

    But I had not fooled with the notifier settings in all that time. So when I got the Pearl, it took me awhile to figure it out that SMS is what one sets for voice mail notification.

    Where are you looking? The trouble is that I have one half the instructions posted and another post has the other half. It does not help matters that these things are buried in layers of menus and sub menus.

    There are a few ways to get to where you set notifiers. The easiest way is to click the speaker icon with the trackball.

    Move the trackball so that the speaker icon is highlighted.

    Press the trackball.

    You will then see the various sound/notification options for the phone, including "Loud" "Vibrate" "Quiet" etc.

    Use the trackball to scroll down to where it says <advance>

    Press the trackball while <Advanced> is highlighted

    A new menu pops up.

    The top item should say <loud> and most likely (active) indicating that "loud" is the current sound profile that is on or active.

    While <loud> is highlighted press the menu key [the dotted key to the left of the trackball].

    A new menu will pop up.

    <edit> should already be highlighted on the new menu, if not scroll to it.

    Press the trackball while <edit> is highlighted.

    The next menu that will pop up has the various "events" for which you can set sound notifiers.

    Scroll down the list and you will see "SMS" at the bottom. SMS is the one you select to change notification for voice mail.

    When you are done making changes do not forget to <save> them.

    To save you press the escape key [key to right of trackball]. On pressing that key a menu will pop up asking if you want to save the changes. Highlight <save> and press the trackball to save.

    Hope that helps.

    Sounds like they really screwed up the profiles app for the Pearl. Hope this doesn't filter through to 4.2 on the other Blackberries.
