    Can the length of the notification for text messages be increased to accommodate a ringtone? I have designated "Dream" as the sound, but only a second or two is heard then it quits. This ringtone starts softly and moves thru several sounds until it hits a loud repetitive alarm that can be heard at some distance for about 30 seconds. I used this on my last BB

    Thanks. Harmount

    It was longer on 10.2 but short on 10.3... we hope a future update brings back the long timing. We have no idea why it was changed in the first place. Why make it short? Why not a setting so it's your choice?

    This was one of the nice features of BBOS7 - you could control the number of "times" a ringtone was played. I can't find this or a similar feature on BB10. If you're fairly technical, the only thing I could suggest is loading up that mp3 in a sound file editor and looping it a few times. Then copy back to your phone using a different name and set it as the tone for text messages.

    Not sure creating an mp3 file would work. I already use an mp3 file and the notification only lasts a couple seconds. Sometimes it doesn't use the mp3 but uses a tone which is not even what I selected. Definitely was better with 10.2. Hopefully they'll have a fix soon. Often miss a notification as a result.

    I agree. I just upgraded from the OS7 Bold to the Classic. I love the Classic, but I miss being able to control how many "times" the text message notifier is played.
