Shortcut to "Vibrate" profile when locked
When the BB is locked, what is the shortcut key/button to set the BB 8100 profile to vibrate ?
I think there's a couple ways...please list any of them you know.
I used to be able to hold down the "#" button and it would toggle between "vibrate" and "normal" profile. Now that I upgraded to OS 4.5 (from 4.2), this doesn't work anymore.

Well, I'm able to switch from normal to vibrate back and forth on my BB using the # sign... However I do this when the phone is unlocked.. When I lock my keys it won't work (cause the keys are locked). Did it use to work for you before? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Yes, I am 100% sure that I used to be able to use the # key to set the profile to vibrate with OS 4.2. I can't now that I upgraded to 4.5. When locked, the # key simply toggles the CAPS setting now.

If it works on 4.5 too...I think it maybe a keyboard setting or something.

Oh, one more thing...I used to be able to change the profile to vibrate by holding down the mute key (on the top). Now it just goes into standby.
there should be no differtiation between settings of the keyboard, holding down pound(#) always switches to VIB(granted that is the last profile you used- this matters A LOT). check out any cell and the # will usually be the key that activates the vibrate... most of them anyhow....
Tilt is fun with WM 6.1, but not enough to kill the need for my nw iPhone 3Gs!!!
Mr_Carter has the same problem I do.
Holding down # does in fact switch to vibrate when it's unlocked.
BUT this does not work when it's locked.
I have OS v22.214.171.124...what do you guys have?

According to the BlackBerry.com, "To switch between the Default and Vibrate notification profiles, from the Home screen, hold the pound ( # ) key."
I honestly may just revert back to OS 4.2 cause I can't stand not having the ability to set to vibrate when its locked!!
I have 126.96.36.199 and can switch to vib in locked mode by pressing the # key.

lauren25, you mentioned holding the "#" key switches to vibrate (or last profile) for you on both OS 4.2 and 4.5.
Can you please let me know which exact OS version you have? 4.5.#.###?
I was setting a few Speed dials the other day and notice that the #/Q key was pre-set to vibrate on my Bold

So I guess it's just not possible to set the profile to vibrate when it's locked.
I am going back to 4.2...
What OS do you have 4.5. What? I have 188.8.131.52 and it works, what's your complete OS number? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I have OS 184.108.40.206 too.
So when your 8100 is locked (asking for password), holding down "#" sets the profile to vibrate?
No... Mine does not do that while its locked... Then again I never tried that before my upgrade. However, are you able to switch between vibrate and normal pressing the # when your BB is not locked? ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
