Sound notification on iPhone 5
Parents downloaded BBM on their iPhone. Seems to be working ok. They say that there is no sounds when they get a message. I'm too far away to look at the settings for them. Could somebody tell me how to turn on sound notifications for BBM on iPhone.

If you want to check the sounds to make sure they're on for BBM specifically, you would go to Settings > Notification Center > BBM. There should be a switch for sound that should be set to "on". By default though, the sound is on... so, ya.

The problem is the sound volume is much lower then the other notifications. My wife has her Iphone 4S volume to max and the BBM notification sound is half that the other notifications have(emails, SMS... etc) hope they can do something about.

Support forums crack berry informed that the tone is bundled in the bbm app for iPhones. Cannot be changed. That's critical in determining the apps usability, hopefully bbm will update quickly else iPhone users will abandon n uninstall.

Yup, fix the low sound volume. Number one complaint from Bbm ios users. I have friends who tell me to text them because they can not hear the Bbm notifications on their phones. They are dropping Bbm like flies.
Number two complaint is the font is two small to read.
Hope Bbm crew reads this forum.

I have BBM on my iPhone 5S and the inability to change the notification tone or make it louder is a serious problem. More often than not I'm back to using SMS/iMessage even for BBM contacts because I'm missing the notification when new messages arrive.
I have no other serious complaints about the app, seems to work pretty good otherwise.
