    Good, discrete alert sound

    Advertisement



    Does anyone know of a good, discrete alert?

    I have BBAlerts, and at work my unholstered alert for SMS/MMS is just a blinking status light. But I'd love a discrete (quiet) tone so if I don't see the blinking light I still am aware of the message.

    I am mostly in a quiet room of cubes so I don't want anything too obvious. Especially if I get a few in a row.

    When it's holstered it's not an issue as it vibrates.

    Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
    As always, just my opinion...

    How about some taps of the Enter key?

    I think it's a perfect alert for an office. It's a sound that would be heard anyway , but it's unique enough so you would know it was the Blackberry.

    Perfect! Exactly the type of thing I was looking for.

    In all actuality it's not that I think anyone would care I'm getting messages. But I don't want to be the guy whose phone is always playing weird stuff.

    On that note, polka ringtones should be banned from office settings!

    Nice find Ben...
    Not a fan of that specific sound, but that soundsnap has all kinds of stuff. I am going to use a cricket sound on a coworker when they crack a dumb joke, lol
