I have just upgraded from 9700 to 9900. Aside from the incredibly annoying reduced battery life (where RIM gets the expected standby time measured in days rather than hours, goodness only knows!), I have encountered a problem which some of you are not going to believe -- but I swear it's true. I use two modes -- LOUD and SILENT. I have modified the LOUD settings so that alerts (for emails, SMS and BBM chats) should only play when OUT OF HOLSTER - i.e. when the phone is in the holster, it should be silent except when somebody rings me. So why does it ognore the settings and alert me audibly when I receive messages? Does anybiody else have this problem? I can get it to behave (i.e. to remain silent) if I choose "play when IN HOLSTER", but this is the exact opposite of what it should do -- isn't it? I have a degree in Computer Science, plenty of IT savvy and a good degree of patience, but this is bizarre!!
