BBM alert for iPhone

Is there any way to modify the volume alert for BBM on the IPhone without modifying the ringtone volume?


The only way I can hear the BBM alert it is if the volume is so high that when the phone rings it's extremely loud. 


HELP please!!!

Re: BBM alert for iPhone

Apparently the iPhone BBM alert volume is tied to the main alert/ring volume, I've read, and there is no way to independently adjust only for BBM.

Re: BBM alert for iPhone

Thanks JSanders,


I hope this can be resolved soon. I love BBM, but I can't afford to miss messages, maybe I'll have to use WhatsApp in the meantime.
