    vibrate and ring at the same time?

    Advertisement



    I have got my Blackberry Pearl for a month now and I think it is great as an e-mail machine but not such a good phone. The two main problems I find are the following:
    1. I cannot make it vibrate and ring at the same time. Either it starts by vibrating and then rings, rings or vibrates but never both at the same time. I think that is just unbelievable. Has somebody been able to fix that?
    2. I find ringtones are SOOO low I cannot even hear them. I always have my Blackberry in my pockets and my problem is that I don't hear it most of the time so I have to end up calling back all the time.
    I have also said a friend to call me in front of me and his phone had given two signals before my Blackberry started ringing. Obviously, people end up hanging up after 4 or 5 tones and I had just heard 2 tones.

    Could somebody help me out with these problems or is it a matter of getting used to it??

    Thanks in advance

    Welcome to Pinstack!

    1. Who is your carrier?
    2. What OS are you running?

    The vibrate and ring at the same time I do not think is possible. If you are on an old OS upgrading it might fix the hesitation in the ringing.

    I am on Vodafone. As to the OS, I have no idea. Do they have a new one already after a couple of months??

    What were they thinking about? It's been years since I last saw a phone that cannot vibrate and ring at the same time!!!

    yea I miss the ringing and vibrate and the same time. my old old phone use to do it. It was a Sony Ericsson T610, ever since then all my other phones do it alternating. UGH. there's no work around.

    As for the sound yea i miss calls all the time unless i have it out of my pockets. My volume on all my ringtones are on high also. I've gotten use to it.

    For the volume you can drill holes right in the backing of the phone(the cover) right where the speakers are. Has worked for other poeple, I am young so I never miss it ring, because I have good ears lol. This phone is very loud compared to the other phones I have had, so for me I have no problem with sound. Also, the peole who have drilled holes have said the sound improves by a large amount.

    Drilling holes on a new phone? I don't think I'll do that!

    I agree, drilling holes seems a little extreme. What about just setting the phone to vibe while it's in a pocket?

    I never said it was a good idea lol, all I said was people have done it, and it works. If you just want it to vibrate and no ring go to profiles/vibrate and it should work. I agree I wouldn't drill holes into my phone either.

    If things might get better downloading the latest OS (I have OS 4.2.0.51), where do I download the latest one? I have been to Rim's website and haven't been able to find it? How do I install it?

    THanks
