    Question Louder ring? Vibrate+ring same time? More than 2 snooze rings? Where's browser?

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone,

    I bought my red Pearl two weeks ago and have so far loved it -- I switched from a regular phone, this is my first PDA/smart phone and I'm impressed.

    However, there are a few functionalities that are either missing or I simply can't find them. I hope it's the latter because they're the kind of functionalities that every basic cell phone seems to have these days.

    • Even when I have the ring on "Loud" it's just not loud enough. Is there any way to make the ring louder? I keep my phone in my purse most of the time, and I hate missing calls -- especially when I'm in loud places, etc.
    • Is there any way to make the phone vibrate and ring at the same time? As I said, my phone is in my purse most of the time, so by the time the vibrate tones are done, I've only got a few rings I'll hear to get to the call. I don't want to put it just on ring, because if I'm in a loud place, vibration is better. Any ideas? A site I can go to to download this functionality?
    • I got used to using my old cell phone as an alarm clock. I nearly didn't get to work on time a few mornings because the snooze feature seems to stop going off. Is there a problem with my phone or is this just how BB's work? Don't I get unlimited rings until I hit 'dismiss'?? -- isn't that the point of hitting snooze? (Note: if I get up 2 hours later -- this happened and I missed a meeting!! -- it still says that the alarm is going off (asking me to hit 'dimiss' or 'snooze') but it's not!)
    • On an other alarm-related note: Is there any way to set more than one alarm? I'd like to have a daily alarm plus another alarm I can set whenever I need, without having to erase my daily one (and then have to go back and re-set it).
    • Finally, I can't find the browser! It's supposed to be under Applications but there's no browser icon there. Anyone have any ideas?
    I really appreciate your help in advance.

    I also don't like the Ringer and Vibrator. They suck. I would like to know how to make them louder to.

    So far I found that using the most annoying ring like crazy frog's thing works the best. I can hear it from upstairs.

    Browser. Click menu the click show all. Maybe it is hidden.

    my solution for making it ring louder is.. well.. since i make my own ringtones, i just raise the volume in the file before i save it this takes a couple tries... but i try to find out what's the loudest i can make it before it starts sounding distorted on the pearl speaker

    For the Alarm note - check on the thread "My Alarm" by lhurtado. he's got a program that allows you to have multiple alarms. hope this helps.

    I'm sorry I can't actually fin dthe answers I'm looking for in other threads. Perhaps my searching skills aren't refined -- can anyone post links or just answer some of my questions (if you can!)? Thank you!
