    Switching profiles takes forever

    Advertisement



    It takes me 5 minutes to switch from vibrate to "normal" but it switches instantly from "normal" to vibrate. Does anyone else have this problem. By the way, my Normal profile has music that is linked from the memory card(not sure if that matters or not). But i must say it is annoying especially when you cant get calls because your phone is "thinking" about whether or not it want to change profiles or not. Please help me fix this problem.

    It really shouldn't take that long. Have you tried a Cold Reboot (Battery Out, wait 15-30 sec, Battery Back in)? Sometimes that will help.
    I'm Set up the same way as you and don't have any problem switching Profiles.
    Let us know how this works out.

    Re: Switching profiles takes forever

    I have done that atleast 20 times( and that takes FOREVER!!!). If I recall correctly, it didnt do this until I bought my sd card and began to load full length songs. Almost everyone in my contact list has a different mp3 that they are linked to.

    If you use full length mp3's as ringtones that may be the problem. I use 15 second mp3's and mine switches in seconds. You can shorten the songs using Audacity or other free mp3 editing programs and store them in the Ringtone folder of the card.

    I may have to do that, but some of those mp3s work double duty(some for calls and listening pleasure) so i really would not want to shorten them.

    Make a shorter copy and put it in the Ringtone Folder for use as ringtones and put the full length one in the music folder. That should work.

    Hope this helps

    With the zen theme it takes a good 30 seconds for me to switch profiles, but on the BB Insight or any plazmic theme takes less than 5-10 seconds. I havent tried it with other dimension themes, maybe its the unlocked vendor themes.
