It works like this:
Say you add Greeby to the Important Calls profile.
Once added...whenever Greeby calls you you can have the BB switch from whatever profile you are in (say silent or do not disturb) to the profile designated in the Important Calls profile. You can also designate a custom phone tune for that profile.
Why would you want to do this?
Say you are in an important meeting and you have the BB set to DND or silent, but you are waiting on a very important call (wife is in labor and on the way to the hospital etc.)
You can add you wife's name (Ms. Greeby) to the Important Call exception list, set the profile to Normal, and set the tune to Pink's "Let's get this party started".
So when the big call comes in your BB sings up a storm (no matter what the profile is set to at the time) and you know to answer the call.
