So my new T-Mobile BlackBerry 8320 arrived (retiring my AT&T 8300) and I've been getting it set-up this morning.
And as I go through my profiles and set up the tones/notifications to the way I like them, I ALWAYS find myself going back to the notifier_cricket tone for BlackBerry Messenger alerts/messages.
I find it sooo strange that I do this though. It HAS TO BE THE MOST ANNOYING SOUND IN THE WORLD...especially if you get three messages in a row and it keeps chirping at you. It literally drives me crazy (especially if you have it on loud volume), and even worse, it drives my girlfriend crazy (we'll be watching a movie or something and that efffin cricket will start chirping like mad).
Yet despite my HATE for this tone, I ALWAYS find myself going back to it. My first BlackBerry (7290) had that tone for BBM by default....that's what my brain got used to...and I just can't not have it set as my BBM notifier. If I change it up I just don't feel right. And it's weird.. I can change up my ringtone, I can change up my SMS notifier, but the BBM has to be the cricket.
Soo... what I want to know... Am I Crazy? Is there anybody else out here who just MUST use a certain tone for their notification? Anybody else Love but Hate the cricket like me??
I also use cricket for my BBM, and love it and hate it. If you only get 1 message, its not bad, but getting multiple messages, it gets annoying. Although, i cant find another notifier that i like so much, lol
Congrats on that 8320, i bet its gonna save you some data charges using the WiFi!!!
What color did you get? The Titanium or pale gold??
I have a Crimson 8320, with a Keychain BT puck. The wifi is great, it will rteally cut down on your data usage. I can send and receive email, surf CB all with my data turned off. That will be a real money saver, with the way BB data is charged up there. Enjoy it!!
What theme are you gonna be using on it? I LOVE the T-mo theme, even though i have the L, and the 9000, i still use the T-Mo.
I try to change it but always come back to using it. it seems that only other BB users know what it is. It cracks me up to see people looking around to see where the noise is coming from. My wife also hates it. When were at home i have it set to phone only... no alerts, mms or sms allowed.
I have a different "chirping" issue. On a full battery, each time I dial a number, the call starts off w a soft beep or chirp. It does this w or w/o a headset in use, and when using speakerphone. I got my 8320, last Sept. when it was released and its never done this before, up until 4 days ago. Talk to me, what's up w my Curve? Please advise. Thanks for listening.
