    Q about built-in BB Alarm...

    Advertisement



    I turn my phone off every night but no matter what profile I use, the Norah Jones tone gets interrupted because of incoming messages, then continues once I get all the messeges. Is there anyway top stop this from happening?

    Sorry, am I reading you issue correctly?

    I don't know what the Norah Jones Tone is but I presume it is a long play music clip?

    Your BB is off but when the time to get up alarm sounds it is interrupted part way through because your BB is now on and receiving the backlog of last nights messages?

    When you say your BB is off is that wireless off too?

    What are the setting in the profile you are using at night?

    Ed, you pretty much summed upo the issue and yes, it happens no matter what profile im using. Ill try turning wireless off.

    P.S. I was being specific about Norah Jones. "Come away with me" is very gentle to wake up to.

    HeyMrRadio,

    Try this, before you turn off the BB, turn Off the wireless, Then turn off the BB. It should start up with your alarm and not have the Wireless on, so it won't start the download. Of course, you would need to remember to turn it back on after you wake up.

    hope this helps

    I think having wireless is one way to fix it.

    Also think an alternative would be to create a profile which has no notification for messages (and phone if you don't want to take calls during the night). Call that profile "Night" or whatever and then activate that profile before you turn off your BB each night, or adopting this method you can leave your BB on.

    I use that method . As I can expect a call from work 24/7 and as I have emails coming in from different time zones, I have created a similar profile setup for my night time.

    During the night I do want to hear the phone ring but I do not want to be notified every time an email hits my inbox.

    You could try the no sound message profile and see how that goes.

    Again of course you will need to switch to another profile in the day if you want message notification.

    Good Luck

    I created my own.

    No notification for any email or messenger messages.
    Low tone notification of SMS (How my son's contact me).
    Medium increasing tone for phone.

    Re: Q about built-in BB Alarm...

    I bought BB Alerts. Apart from having different colors for the LED according to alert type, there is a scheduler feature that I use for when I don't want to be hassled either by sounds or a flashing LED - especially at night when I'm trying to get shut eye. The good thing about it is that you set the time period you want alerts, so it automatically turns em off when you don't. Just means I don't have to remember to switch profile every night!

    Sounds like a good way to automate the process.

    I'll check it out.

    $10 from Handango.com. Setting the scheduler up was a pig until I realized that it doesn't automatically take over the default BB alert settings. If you need any help give me a shout as it's straightforward once you know how.
