    Timed Profiles

    Advertisement



    I'm sorry if this has already been covered but I couldn't see it so here it is...

    I know you can turn the phone off and on according to the time and day of week but can you change the profile based on time instead? I'd like to have i.e. a calls only profile at night whereas turning the phone off may mean I miss that important call...

    Any ideas?

    TIA

    Tim

    You could change the profile to phone only (and customize the profile as your see fit) before you go to bed, but I have to agree that time-operated profile would be really useful.

    Yeah, there are a few flaws with that though, like remembering to do it! Seems a sort of obvious thing to have but I guess it's got to have some flaw!

    I guess the biggest flaw with any device is going to be the user.

    That would be a good addition for the operating system. But I never thought of using a profile for calls only. Lol. Phone only calls only same thing.

    Re: Timed Profiles

    I am looking for an automatic profile as well, but probably for different purpose. In my previous smartphone, when I have meetings (on my calendar), the phone will automatically switch from "Normal" to "Meeting" profile (i.e. ringers automatically switched to vibrate). Then, once the scheduled meeting is over, it automatically reverts back to "Normal" mode. I found this a cool feature...something I was looking for with my Pearl.

    Yeah I had the scheduled meeting feature in my last phone and it wasn't even a smart phone. Lol. If you find a way let us all know!
