This article applies to the following:
BlackBerry Wireless Handheld™ based on Java™
BlackBerry® 7100 Series and later
Alert.startBuzzer() and Alert.setBuzzerVolume() are not supported by the BlackBerry 7100 Series device and later devices.
The BlackBerry 7100 Series device and later devices contain a hardware upgrade that changes the way audio is produced.
As an alternative to Alert.startBuzzer(), we recommend Alert.startMIDI(). To determine the method to use, the following tests are performed:
if( Alert.isBuzzerSupported() )
} else if( Alert.isMIDISupported() )
Note: If you use a polyphonic tone, use the above test to check the availability of Alert.startADPCM(). You can do so via Alert.isADPCMSupported().
