Disable all sounds except the Alarm clock?

Is there a way to create a custom profile so that only the alarm clock sound will be active?  My old LG phone had this feature, basically an "Alarm only" setting.  It was great for when I needed to take a power nap and didn't want to be disturbed by phone calls/text alerts.

 

Thanks!

I know in Phone only the alarm still works and i dont hear my SMS/MMS.  I havent tried the alarm in the QUIET mode. 

 

Enjoy your blackberry - I am almost a 2 month old user and loving it!

Ok I just tried this. The alarm WILL work even if you profile is set to QUIET or OFF.

Re: Disable all sounds except the Alarm clock?

Thanks for investigating. Will give this a try.  Hmmm... if alarms make sound with the "Off" profile, how does one  silence _all_ sounds from the phone?  Besides from turning off, that is.

Re: Disable all sounds except the Alarm clock?

I suppose you would set the profile to off and go into the alarm screen and turn the alarm of as well. As far as there being a way to stop it in one step, I'm not aware of one.

Alerts off?

I haven't been able to silence my phone other than turning it off. I want it to vibrate for all alerts at some times. I even made a custom alert profile, asking for it to vibrate only. If the caller has been assigned a custom ringtone from Phone Zoo, will the ringtone never be silent?

WelcSmiley Happyme to the forums!

 

 

Go under each profile and check your alert settings for your QUIET and VIBRATE

 

That should turn them all on to that setting once you get them all set for the ACTIVE profile.

Re: Disable all sounds except the Alarm clock?

I've been trying to understand the profile designations and find no documentation that allows me to set them up reasonably.  Where can I find the difference between Level 1 Messages, Messenger - Alert, Messages, etc?  I'm trying to set my phone so that only the phone or alarm will sound and don't see how to do it.  The alarm rang silently this morning, making me late for a meeting.   

 

Thanks.

Re: Disable all sounds except the Alarm clock?

Just wanted to report a solution which is related to this item.

If not in the right spot please move it to the right section.

 

BB9700 Bold V5.0.0.862/ vodafone NL

 

I had a serious issue that my alarm clock didn't sound in the morning.

 

At night I switched my phone off and the alarm screen lights up next morning but no sound.

 

I found on a forum that following is the cause and also found the solution there:

1) Cause:

Any sound notification from the phone will stop the alarm clock sound!

A have a BES with company IT policy so the phone has an obligatory pincode and password.

In the morning the alarm switches the phone on and the pincode screen + related sound appears.

This sound will stop the alarm clock sound from starting/continuing

 

2) solution

Before you switch off your phone, make sure to put the general sound profile on SILENT.

This way the alarm will sound when it goes off.

Since I do not want to have any phone calls while I sleep this is a good solution for me.

Dont'forget to switch the sound profile back to e.g. normal after the alarm has doen its job.

 

This seems to me a bug in the OS firmware.
