Alerts don't work reliably

When setting alerts for email, they don't always work.  One in particular would test once but then would not test (using "TRY") again.  It NEVER went off when email was received, regardless of holster status.  I tried enabling it while in the holster but that didn't work either.

I finally changed to a different alert and that works SOME of the time.


Non-determinism is not a property to be desired when using a Blackberry.

Re: Alerts don't work reliably


If it does sometimes and not others I would presume is  problem with the speakerphone in the BB. Probably a bad connectiona nd that's why it rings sometimes.





Don't forget to CLICK that BLACK or GRAY Kudos square if some one was helpful.
Also please mark it as a solution if your problem is solved.
