Add Ons

I heard there was an add on for Blackberry Desktop Software where you can choose what alert/ring tone you want for BlackBerry Messenger users.  I am unable to find it, does any know where it is so I can download it and customize my Messenger?

Re: Add Ons

There is no Add on for that. You can customize the alart type for your BlackBerry Messenger. Try the following -


From your device application list go to Profile -> Advanced -> highlight the active profile -> click Menu then Edit -> highlight Messenger - Alart/Messenger - New Message and hit trackball set the following -


                                Out of holster    : Tone

                                Tune                  : Select desired tune

                                Volume              : hight/medium/low

Re: Add Ons

I don't know about add-ons, but I do know you can choose distinct ring tones for blackberry messenger when a message is received (IM).

you choose it the same way you choose the ring tone for your phone or other messaging functions.
