    Can individual users be assigned specific text tones? I've never seen any phone that can do this, but then again, I've never used a blackberry


    Regarding the magnetic cases. As soon as the storm is avaliable in stores I plan on buying one, along with the BB brand leather pocket with the magnet to put it into standby. I plan on keeping the phone in the pocket at all times.

    My question is: If the phone only has one profile for when it recognizes the magnet, how can I control wether or not its on silent or not? When I'm in class I don't want to have my phone ring, but any other time I would like to...

    Can the phone be set to just go into standby mode and retain whatever profile I set prior to putting the phone in the pocket?

    Or am I totally wrong in how things work and its not an issue to worry about at all?

    Thanks for the help.

    1) can individual users be assigned specific text tones?

    There are Contact Alerts for Phone and Messages that can be customized for individual contacts (under profiles). Messages seems a little vague, but I think if it's anything ike the Messages mailbox, SMS,MMS and Email wwould be covered. I would definately look on the RIM site for the 9530 user manual or do a search in the Blog as the manual has been either posted or linked on there.

    2) magnetic cases (AKA Holster)

    The are multiple profiles you can modify or create a custom profile. In each profile you can set what you want to happen while unholstered and holstered. As far as class goes, you can either switch to a "Classroom" profile or hold down the mute button on the top and it changes to the Vibrate Only profile.

    I admit I am not an expert at this, but decided I would go through the features to try and find you an answer.
