    change enabled profile without unlocking device

    Advertisement



    There is currently no way to easily change the currently enabled notification profile when the device is locked. It would be really nice to be able to change the currently enabled notification profile without having to first enter your password to unlock the device. I would not necessarily recommend allowing access to the full edit capabilities of the notification profiles, but simply the ability to switch from "normal" to "vibrate", etc.

    Wow, that almost seems like a no-brainer.

    I'm able to change my profile from normal (or whatever the currently selected profile is) to silent by holding the # key on my Pearl.

    It led me to believe that this feature would be on other BBs too.

    Yeah you would think they'd implement something like pressing alt and the # key to switch profiles with your phone locked or something, but unfortunately only switches to vibrate from current profile.

    I know that he meant when his BB was locked with a password, I'm saying that I am able to change profiles wile the BB is still locked.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ changing settings would defeat the purpose of locking the keys. You do it to prevent things from happening. Calling people or changing from vibrate to loud during a meeting.

    You CAN change the profile from whatever you have it at to vibrate when the keys are locked with password by holding down #. It was a pleasant discovery. I'm using TIM os.

    Actually, the purpose of locking the device is for data security. To prevent unauthorized access to your e-mail, address book, etc.

    Re: change enabled profile without unlocking device

    For as long as I've had my 8700, I cannot believe I just figured this out. When the device is locked, or any other time if I hold the mute button for 3 seconds it will change from the current profile to vibrate!

    Does your 8700g give you any type of confirmation that the profile has been switched? This doesn't seem to work on my 8700c. I've tried it both locked and unlocked.

    After playing with a few other 8700's Ive noticed that this is an upgrade that comes with the 4.2 software. I upgraded using the chiniese version talked about on this site.
