    Screen lights up for calls

    Advertisement



    Ok, so I appologize in advance for all of the noob posts from me...
    this is my first blackberry. I love it, except for the fact that if a call / text comes in, if I dont feel it vibrate..there is no notification that anything happned. Every other phone I have had, the screen lights up, or a missed call window pops up..

    Is there anything I can do?


    Thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~if you turn on your LED indicator for messages it will flash red. It does this automatically for calls as well. Also a preference of mine is is changing my Loud profile to vibrate and ring while in the holster. Unless your in a theater or movie, then you can switch it to vibrate.

    k. So no way to get the screen to come on, or a pop up window (through settings or 3rd party apps or whatever)?

    Thanks

    maybe it's your theme or os. I get a window that pops and says I have a missed call and voicemail (if left of course) with the option to view or cancel. Also have a notification under the cell network that will stay there until I view my call log. Theres also the red led that blinks a few times but I miss not having a chirp or chime for reminder in case the phone is across the room.

    Im using a pearl
    If i get a new sms message i get a red star next to the mailbox and the red led lights up, missed calls i get a missed call notification in which i can view this is on TMobile zen. I then switched to the BB today pluss which has the messages and call logs on the main screen so i can easily see if i have something new.

    Re: Screen lights up for calls

    What profile are you using? Normal, Loud, Silent, etc?

    My screen lights up when a call comes in, if its out of the holster. It does not light up for SMS/BBM/Emails. My indicator light turns red and I get my notifier tone or vibration, depending on my profile.

    You can check your settings for all types of notifications under PROFILES-ADVANCED-(Active). You can set vibrate or tone notifications for emails, SMS, etc here. Now I have never seen a BB that the screen did not light up for an incoming call - are you sure that yours does not?
