    I've been a BlackBerry user since the first Pearl and have bought every Bold, Z10/Z30, last year I had a Passport for 24hrs but wanted to try something new so I bought a Samsung Note 4. Loved Android for its flexibility but after 4 months I couldn't deal with not having the HUB.

    So I sold the Note 4 and went back to a Z30, when I saw this PRIV was coming out I knew it was going to be the Hybrid I wanted and I was right. Been playing with it since I picked it up yesterday, I am so slow on the PKB lol Sure I miss some gestures and I hope the Hub improves but it's WAY better than stock android and I'm happy with it for sure.

    So far the one thing I can't figure out is how, if possible I can set notifications for apps, I know it doesn't get as granular as BB10 but I can't figure it out, if not is there an App for that, which one is good? (Example, BBM vibrated once with green LED, txt vibrated twice with blue LED, calendar 3 vibrates, Gmail and Exchange mail no vibrate and no sound but red LED)

    I'm super anxious to keep getting familiar with this BlackBerry.

    Email and exchange is done in the hub settings, for text messages you gotta set it in the sms app, basically you're only able to do whatever the app itself allows you too. Open each app and check what options it gives you for notifications

    I'm sure you are just trying to make yourself feel better by spending $800 on an Android phone. Don't kid yourself pal and return it while you can.

    Usually notification setting resides in app's setting. Some are customizable some are not. There is no standard centralized place to configure per app settingile in BB10.

    I went through the Hub ones and then in the apps, will see how that goes, +1 for BB10 on notifications but so far that's all that I miss. I'm liking the VKB a lot more than on the Z30 actually, it's so good that I forget to slide open to use the PKB.

    If the included BlackBerry Settings don't work out, there's a popular app called "Light Flow" in the Google Play Store which allows for customization of notifications. I don't have a Priv to test it on, but it's always worked well on my Motorola phones.

    It depends on the app you select, some apps don't allow customization. However there is another way as I have customized my notifications, unfortunately I can't remember how I did it ( to many glasses of vino tonight )

    I use Lightflow and Floatify for notifications on my Nexus 4. Combined they give you full control over the LED and pop up notifications (like setting different colors or replying to a message directly from the notification like on iOS)

    It does do granularity you can drill down to each app.

    OK I downloaded Light Flow and set it up, looks like you can control what happens in sleep mode as well which should be good, will see how it works now with this, thanks for the suggestions, this is the beauty of Android

    Notifications for apps in Android are done individually with in the settings for each app. Took me a while to figure that one out too. But after thinking about why it is done like that I like it. If I don't like how the messenger or email app or even HUB works...I can go download a 3rd party app to take over that I like better...if all the settings were integrated like on BB10 (or even iOS) you can't do that. Gives you a little more flexibility.

    Profiles and LED notifications is what makes BlackBerry a BlackBerry! I don't know if the phone has Profiles. It's clearly it doesn't have LED notifications app. Oh well BB10 when it first came out did not have it either so maybe it will be added later on.
