Re: Text Message Alerts Not Alerting Properly on Storm

I am having the same problem and have had two different phones doing the same thing.  The latest software update did not correct the problem either.  I see that there has not been any additional posts in a couple of months.  Did someone figure out how to make these alerts for SMS messages work correctly?

It's only "lightspeed"...you need to pick a different tone.

Re: Text Message Alerts Not Alerting Properly on Storm

i had the same problem my messages would sound when ever they wanted too. i went to verizon and they didnt know what was wrong with it so they gave me a new phone. well the new one does it too. but i figured it out for some reason the alerts that come with the phone dont work so i put in songs or alerts that i downloaded to my memory card in the phone and it works fine now. so i recommend that you download or put songs on the memory card and use those. hope this helps you guys.

Re: Text Message Alerts Not Alerting Properly on Storm

got the same issue myself; even changing the tones don't do anything and i created a custom profile.

 

i think it has to do with the storm software itself, since neither IM programs (msn/yahoo/bbm) work properly when it comes to alerts.

 

the only thing that works right is the flashing red light.

 

im curious about whether or not the other models have this issue too.

Re: Text Message Alerts Not Alerting Properly on Storm

i have the same problem. i have had a blackberry 8520 curve for a week now, and mine does exactly the same! i have tried all sorts of tones and the SMS alert just refuses to work. BBM alert works fine and so does voice calling, but SMS does not sound/vibrate, or even flash up with the red light.

 

 i know it's only been a week but it's frustrating me having to keep checking my phone for SMS messages! if anyone finds a solution to this problem PLEASE inform me!

Re: Text Message Alerts Not Alerting Properly on Storm

After realising I had the issue above with my BlackBerry I spoke to a friend who told me that when he had the same problem he took the whole battery out, left it for five minutes and then when he put it back in it worked. So I tried it, and it worked!! Try it! Smiley Happy
