    Question Ringtone Trackball Lighting

    Advertisement



    I've had my blackberry pearl for a while now. My sisters trackball lights up and blinks colors for her incoming calls (yes i have the colorpearl). I went to call log-->options-->general options--> ringtone lighting and turned it to my trackball. ive also turned it off then back on to make sure it was saving and everything, but it still Wont work!! all it does when someone calls is light up but it doesnt blink. What should i do??

    Re: Ringtone Trackball Lighting

    I believe you have to download an application for it to blink colors.. "Trackball Lighting" something.

    I'll search the site and get back to you if I find it.


    Edit:

    Again, I don't know if you can't simply do it without an App or if your phone is just malfunctioning (still a newbie) but this is what I found lurking around the site:

    -trackball lighting won't work on vibrate or silent profiles.

    -Found an application, its called "Blinkberry". Looks cool, I might try it out myself!

    Unknown if I can post links yet, but I'll try. If it doesnt work, just look up "blinkberry" in the pinstack search area.

    I've had my Pearl for about 2 weeks. The trackball changed colors and blinked right out of the box for any calls. The colors are very subtle and may be hard to see in bright light. The colors it shows seems to be light orange, purple, green. I did not download anything to get it to do so.

    Maybe theres a problem with your phone.

    Haha, now I want to see if my phone does it too. I always keep mine in the holster, so don't really see it while its ringing. I'll test it out tonight when it gets dark.

    Goto the PhoneApp, push the Menubutton, General Options, Ringtone to yes and thats it.

    There is a program for your trackball to blick different colors based on who is calling you. It is in the downloads section of pinstack. Can't remember the name of the program though.

    That's odd....

    You just go to your Call Log, Hit Options>General Options> Ringtone Lighting - Trackball
