    AutoOff for Profiles

    Advertisement



    If I could get anything bin the world for any of my BlackBerrys I'd getttt...

    Software that would automatically swap the profiles at a certain time. I don't have any use for the Auto On/Off feature, but if I could set the phone to have Monday thru Friday 8-2 on a special profile, then swap back to vibrate at 2:01, itd be bliss.

    I may just not know if this actually exists already.. Pls advise if it does!

    I am really suprised that a developer hasn't written an app to do this <hint, hint!> Windows Mobile, and Symbian both have software for this purpose.

    Well, in fact, as I was just informed... They do! I didn't look around well enough before posting this.

    I'd love this as well but this app has a limitation:

    "The profile will not switch when the BlackBerry is holstered or the keyboard is locked"

    From what I read, you can't have it switch to custom profiles either. Which sucks!

    I have a custom 'silent' that keeps the LED flashing if I get a new message. That's what the phone is on all day

    lol, gotcha.
    I was confused :-S
    Wish I could help. I've used such a program on WinMo, but haven't came across anything like it for the BB.

    Once upon a time, I was a developer. And I wrote a little bit of Java. These devices are all Java-based, so... how hard could it be?

    Actually, knowing that they're Java has made me think around for programming ideas. This one seems pretty reasonable. No (minimal) graphics, no network or phone use, just text, time, and profiles. Hmmm....

    RIM doesn't release full functionality to 3rd party developers. That's why BB Profile Builder must be out of the holster to switch profiles, why Pocketday can't display a Bluetooth symbol, etc.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I used to have a symbian device and there was a third party software that auto-switched profiles not only based on day/time of day but also based on the calendar info. For instance, you would enter a meeting on your calendar and based on your preference, it would switch the bb's profile to silent 15 minutes before the meeting and then after the end time of your meeting, it would switch back to normal automatically.
    Maybe this would give some idea to the creative developers out there as well.
    If it already exists, I'd be happy to hear about it.

    this would be perfect for me. when i had a WinMo i had this too. my schedule was like this:

    Monday-Friday(school)- vibrate
    Monday-Friday(work)-low volume
    Monday-Friday(home)-Normal
    Weekends- depends what I'm doing

    So yeah this would be helpful to have for BB.
    BlackBerry Rocks!<-Check it out!

    Profiles

    It does exist and does EXACTLY WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR. I use it and am very happy with it. The name of the program is Profile Scheduler. I am sure you can search/google "Profile Scheduler Blackberry"
