BBM PING with no function?

Even in 10.1.0.2354 the PING within BBM does not do anything.
Under OS 5/6/7 sending a PING always produces "vibration" even
the phone was set to silent. In our company we found this
way very usefull for meetings.

Until now, the PING function does not do more than displaying a "PING"  ?

 

Will the former functionality come back?

Re: BBM PING with no function?

Hey taltemeier,

Welcome to the BlackBerry Support Community Forums.

 

Thanks for the question.

 

In BlackBerry 10 the PING command will not vibrate but it should make an audible sound unless it's on the vibrate profile.

 

I appreciate the feedback and there is no estimated time if the vibrate function from PING will be back.

 

Let me know if you have any more questions.

 

Cheers.

Re: BBM PING with no function?

Yes, it makes a sound, but not different to the normal BBM Sound. So there is absolut no difference to PING or to "write PING".

 

When you are in "Silent" mode, the PING does not do anything...

Re: BBM PING with no function?

There is also no possiblilty to set a different sound profile for "PING".

 

On ALL former OS Versions like 4,5,6,7 the PING functionality does "something".

 

Why did to implement PING within OS10 even it does not do anything?

Re: BBM PING with no function?

The PING option had a function: it gets your attention!!! Isn't that enough function? Instead of covering up for your mistake just admit it and make the correction in subsequent devices because the omissions on the blackberry 10 devices are becoming too glaring and irritating also. Do something about it.

It gets worse. The PING functionality actually vibrates on Android devices.

Re: BBM PING with no function?

Yeah I agree, why can u make it vibrate on Apple and android but not your own devices. How dose that make sense I thought it would have been the other way around
