    My BB holster marks email/sms as read. My sounds won't play either.

    Advertisement



    I set my profile to ring/vibrate while the bb is in the holster. When I get a call/sms/email, my phone doesn't make any sounds, it only vibrates. If it's a message that I get, the bb will open the message folder and mark the message as read when pulling out the bb from the holster. It makes it hard to see what message is new. Is there anything that could cause this or fix it?

    As for no sound go back into your profile edit and make sure you don't have it set to mute. When ever you get an email and you pull your blackberry out of the holster with in about 10-11 seconds of getting notification of the email it will automatically open that message and I don't think there is anything you can do about it automatically opening that email. If you wait about 20 seconds after receiving the email it won't open automatically. I hope this helps...

    Thanks for the help.

    The sounds aren't set to mute. They just wont ring. I've tried editing and changing profiles. No luck on either. As for the messages, I don't mind that it opens the message folder (it don't open the message), I just don't want it to mark it as read before I read it.

    Waldog,

    What's up man? If you have the notificatioin for say a gmail account set to vibrate+ring, it will vibrate (however many times you setit to) then it will ring. For some reason, BBs can't ring and vibrate at the same time. That throws a lot of new BB users off.

    So, this is how my settings look for my gmail account. When I get a message, it vibrates 3x, then it will make its little noise.

    Have you tried a battery pull reset? It sounds like an unusual problem. May not solve it, but if you haven't done it, maybe it will...

    Thanks for the help guys. I went in and set it to look like russcrypto's screen. And then I did a battery pull for 30 seconds. It now works. Thanks guys. You're geniuses!

    Next time I have a issue, i'll do a battery pull 1st.

    No worries.

    A batt pull should always be one of the first things you try. It's pretty much a catch all fix.
