someone help please!

I'm new to the blackberry and quite honestly, I can't figure it out. I have the curve 8310. Any pros out there please help. I love music and texting but I can't seem to get a grasp  how to apply tones to contacts or a tone to message alerts. This phone is confusing. The guide says it can do things but isn't very helpful when it comes to explaining how to actully do those things.

The device is broken down into "profiles" as far as the sound goes.  You have 6 different profile, and each can be configured to you liking.  Let's change the loud profile for example (this prodedure goes for all profiles):


Click profiles on your device

> scroll down to advanced and click

> highlight the loud profile and clickthe menu key (left of trackball)

> choose edit

> In this window you will see all the items that you can change a sound for.

> scroll to phone for example and click the trackball

> you can change your ringtone from here

> There are in holster and out of holster options.....a holster is a belt clip if you use one....if not don't worry about this.

> Don't forget this is just for the loud profile......you can configure all these settings in each of the other profiles also.



Hope this helps a little....also try www.discoverblackberry.com

That is what this site is for.


Click on Profiles > scroll down to Advanced > Highlight over your Active Profile > Menu > Edit and edit your settings for each notification, phone, etc., you desire. Be sure to set both IN and OUT of holster settings.
