Can I make OS 10 Work for Me?

Hello,

 

I have been using BB with Verizon for many years for my company and I have my pre-OS 10 device customized such that I get pushed only the messages I want on my device and get notified by the sounds/vibrations via the profiles I want. This is critical as I do network administration and I need notified immediate when issues arise.

 

I have my BIS email address, [me]@vzw.blackberry.net that gets pushed instantly to my device however, before any messages get to my device, I have them filtered via settings at https://bis.na.blackberry.com/html. When message do arrive, based on the sender, a different tone/vibration occurs thanks to the highly customizable Profiles.

 

I have been reading that OS 10 has removed some of these features – is this true? Will I no longer be able to achieve the same results (instant filtered email with custom tones) if I upgrade?

 

Thank you.

Roughly speaking, yes.

 

You will no longer be using a [me]@vzw.blackberry.net or BIS accounts, so you will need to set those incoming alert emails to a new account, get a gmail or outlook.com free account, and set the filtering ON the email server.

Then, you will set the notifications for that specific email account as you would like on the BB10 notifications set up.

Thank you for your reply.  Are BB10 notifications customizable at a contact level or just email account level?

On OS 10.1, at the contact level and at the email account level.
