Music on Boot-up

[ Edited ]

Was I imagining it, but should there be a short music jingle when you boot up the PlayBook?


I thought there was, but for the last few days, the device has booted up in silence.


I've looked for options to set what happens when you boot up, but I can't find anything to enlighten me.


So, if your PlayBook still plays music when it's warming up, let me know and if you know what might have happened, then do let me know.


Of course, if I've imagined this, then that's good to know too!

Re: Music on Boot-up

I have no memory of that.

I'd also be a bit bothered, actually, if it was something over which I had no direct control.

Making it configurable would be okay, so I could turn it off, but I'd be really ticked if it made a sound on startup all the time, especially if it was at whatever volume level I'd left the tablet at when I restarted...

Re: Music on Boot-up

from my experience, I have never heard of a jingle at boot-up for the BlackBerry smartphone or the BlackBerry tablet.
