    Receiving emails at 3am

    Advertisement



    Was wondering if anyone could help....

    I sometimes get emails at 3 - 4 in the morning from what I would consider spam. However, I did sign up for them somewhere, so I guess I can't really call it spam. My problem is that these emails wake me up!! Is there anyway I can set emails to only come in after 7am? I really don't think I could shut my pearl off, I'm just too addicted.

    Thanks

    Just set your Profile to either Phone Only or Off. That will keep the email deliveries from waking you up

    I have mine turn off automatically at night, then back on in the morning.

    I do the same, except I have a 5 minute window. basically 5:55am to cut off and 6:00am to cut on. this way it stays on until i'm ready to go to bed at which point I turn it off myself or if i'm waiting on a call (which will have to wake me up) it will stay on until 5:55am, shut off and 5 minutes later it's back up and running.

    question, if you have it set to turn off at 5am and to turn on at 10am, but have an alarm set for 8am, will it start itself up?

    You're welcome! That's what I do because the only time I want to wake up early in the morning is if work calls me. Otherwise, I want to sleep

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ mine turns to phone only as soon as I hit the bed. I get tons of messages, I'd never sleep otherwise.
    And yoi never have to worry about a friend sending you a message when it is not cool.

    Re: Receiving emails at 3am

    You can set alerts for all the different types of calls/mail/messages that your phone gets. You can also set different responses based on whetherr or not it is in the magnetic holster.
    I get a vibrate + ring for calls, but just a little red light for e-mails etc because many come in all the time day and night and I would go truely nuts if my phone rang or vibrated every time.
    Besides, as I rapidly become a crackberry addict, I look for the little red light incessantly. Help!
    You could set it to silent all the time (for mail) or only silent in hoolster and holster it at night or you could simpley set an alternative profile and set it to that at night. The possibilities are endless.
    Go to menu>profiles>advanced...(scroll to bottom of profile menu)>choose your profile>find "messages [you@whereever.com]>set your desires
    you can set these for just about anything...but I think that if you set the "tune" to "none" you also lose the LED, so I set it to "tone and volume to "mute"

    edit: i re-read this and realize i can't type to well...

    Re: Receiving emails at 3am

    I set mine to turn on at 8am during the week and 10am on weekends. My work schedule is programmed into the calendar so if I need to get up early for work the pearl's alarm does the trick.

    Is there a way you can have your messages either vibrate or come in silent yet still have your phone ring (as if in an emergency)?
