    A common question, "How do I change the message and email notifications on my BlackBerry?"

    From you main screen, press F (if you have dial from home screen OFF!). If not, go to your icons, and select 'profiles'.

    Scroll down to 'advanced', and select it...

    On the next screen, choose the profile you want to edit. In this example, we'll do 'normal'. Press menu, then select 'edit'...

    You will notice multiple items you can edit the notification for. Select the one you want...

    On this screen, pressing the trackball will allow you to edit each field...

    Once you're done, pres the ESC button, and you will be given the option to save...

    This is great. I've edited my profiles. BUT, for some reason, my custom ringtone rings through the earpiece not through the speaker. Thus, I'm missing calls.

    You Rock!!! Thanks for the info. For everyone's info, when setting a task, I needed to set a reminder for the alarm to go off, but not for the calendar.

    Strange, you'd got me on that one! Might be a device issue. Not sure what to say, try a battery pull or something...

    I have one question:

    how did you get a setting for [Gmail] ??? and Messages [Ivan] ??? I have the gmail app installed on my 8830, but it doesn't alert me when I get a new email (like my corporate account does). I have to manually go into the gmail app and then I'll have like 5 new messages.

    GMail application works differently. I say just add the GMail account to BIS. Doing so will automatically give you a 'messages looking icon', but for GMail.

    Then you can edit the notifications etc, via profiles...

    I've tried this and it works great! One problem though… Now when my phone rings it doesn’t tell me whose calling any more. Any thoughts? Thanks.

    how did you get a setting for Messages [Ivan] and etc??

    I want to set a different ringtone for each one of my friends.

    socoduce, go to phone / menu / options / smart dialing - make sure the right country code etc is set...

    Carlee86, are you saying you want it so when a friend sends an email or something it makes a certain notification? If yes, you have to add an exception, once added, go to the messages section, and add said notification...

    I figured it out at this thread. Thanks though.

    PS- I couldn't find smart dialing in my options menu. Should I be worried? lol...

    Thanks navilyn, however I can't just add the notification to my messages. I've tried so many way and different things.

    So this is really going to the death of me.

    I am a ringtone maniac. I previously had the Razr and when I set the ringtones for my friends it automatically applied for their text messages as well.

    I’ve tried adding exceptions, I have a list of them but the majority of them are because of labeling my address book with custom ring tones.

    My list for “Normal” mode does not look like the one you have shown on the help thread.

    Mine currently looks like this:

    I’ve tried making a new profile and it still does the same thing.

    The Messages [Ivan], are they something special like emails or BB/PIN messages that you can actually setup differently than my txt msgs? (Not trying to be noisy..just trying to figure this all out)

    I love this little phone but my gosh it’s like rock science.

    This is great information! Thanks for posting it along with screen captures.
    How do you get screen captures on a BB? Or is that a question for another forum :-)

    As a new user to the board, my first post is a thank you for this.

    I have been having issues with my messages not chiming or even vibrating and I couldn't figure it out. You did the leg work and I have now made sure each email addy has it's tone and is on.

    Thanks again so much for this.

    Carlee, if you want a different ringtone or alert for specific emails from different friends, read this link and follow the instructions:

    Good luck.
