    Vibrate & Normal Ring at once for incoming calls???

    Advertisement



    Hey guys, wanted to throw this question out there. I noticed that I only have Loud, Normal, Quiet, Vibrate and something else, but what I wanted to know is there anyway I can set the phone to vibrate and ring together at the same time like I could with my old phone. For instance you are in a loud place, for example a bar, and you forget to turn the phone to vibrate, and u miss the call cause u didnt hear it. Anyway to download this setting for normal ring + vibrate so I can just leave me phone on this setting all the time?

    Thanks guys,

    Dave

    I recently got the blackberry pearl, and was trying to figure out how to do that. Still haven't found a way to do this, but I hope someone figured out how to do this

    As I understand the Pearl, you go to Profiles and scroll down to Advanced then you can Edit any profile listed and set any of the alerte to TONE + VIB.

    hope this helps

    That option doesn't make the Pearl vibrate and ring at the same time, it vibrates first, then rings.

    It seems like my 8700g doesn't do that either.
    If we keep talking about this issue, RIM might take that into consideration for the upcoming model, 8800. I am so ready to get my hands on it.
    It would be a great feature for 8800.

    Rcbjr, Thanks for the info. That's exactly what I wanted the pearl to do.
    Thanks again

    This still only makes the Pearl vibrate first (up to 3 times) and then ring. Is there any way to make it vibrate AND ring at the same time while a call is coming in?

    Most cell phones can do this, but it seems like the Pearl can't

    try opening profiles optionand role the track wheel to loud and click it and select edit. Next in the list scroll to phone, click track wheel and select edit. you should have options for in holster and out of holster click to edit these and a menu opens with none, tone, vibrate, and vibrate + tone

    Nope, this bothered me too. It will only vibrate as many times as you set it THEN start ringing.

    And it's standard with all BBs, not limited to the Pearl. I like it because it does give you a chance to answer it before starting to ring.

    Definitly handy when you're in a business meeting and forget to set it on vibrate. You have a chance to ignore the call before it interrupts the meeting. Crackberries are definitly made for the business minded person.

    Re: Vibrate & Normal Ring at once for incoming calls???

    While I agree with all the statements about the good to have the vibe before ring, I like to have my phone vibe while ringing because I don't wear it on my hip. Instead, I actually have it in my pocket and sometimes I don't hear the ringing. However, I do like the vibe but wish that when it DOES indeed vibrate, I'd like it to vibrate more than three times otherwise I feel like I missed the call.
