    Lightbulb How many of us keep our blackberrys on vibe?

    I'm not too big on ringtones so I have damn near every alert set to vibrate. Only time my phone actually emits sound is when I'm receiving a phone call and my device is out of the holster.

    I think its a tad less annoying. And a bit more professional.

    I would turn this into an actual poll but, I'm posting from my 8700 via Opera Mini.
    Plus, I love to make life even harder for you guys.

    I love the sounds that I choose to emit from my 8700g, only time I put in on vibrate is when I'm in class or a business meeting otherwise it's ring baby ring, but most of my ringtones pronounce the caller name so I know immediately if I'm gonna answer or let it go to voicemail! Every now in then I have to place it in quiet mode. When it's holstered I choose vibrate and ring depending on where I am at the time.

    How do you get it to say the callers name?

    Vibrate here about 90% of the time, and that's usually if I am in a loud place. Mine isn't necessarily I am afraid the alerts would offend someone, but when my device is ALWAYS being used and it would drive me nuts!

    I mostly use vibrate + tone for the holstered profile. I'll switch it to vibrate for times when I need it to be quiet but I generally like having the tones so I know why the Blackberry is going off without having to look at it.

    If you edit a person's address, you can select a custom ringtone. The trick is to create a ringtone that states the name of the people in your address book.

    ATT has a demo text to voice engine here: http://www.research.att.com/~ttsweb/tts/demo.php, but it only allows you to save as a .wav file. There are others out there, search google for text to voice generator or something like that.

    I use vibrate also, the only time it rings is when it's out of the holster. That is why i always feel sooo good.

    So true that's why sometimes I have to choose quiet mode.

    I use vibrate mode while I'm at work, quiet mode @ church and outside of that I have to allow it to ring. With 6 emails setup. I need to know if its an email/txt message or a call.
