    I did a bit of searching and I couldn't quite find the answer I was looking for.

    Had my Z10 for about 2 weeks now and one thing that is bugging me is the lack of custom notification profiles (I had a work profile with normal rings set to quieter when I was in the office, and then my normal "Loud" profile on my 9810).

    The other thing that's bugging me a bit is that all my text messages come in with the same tone, even though I have a few contact set up for a custom "Messages" tone.

    I've looked through a bunch of setting and what not but I can't find anything, am I missing something?

    Currently unable to customize profile notifications.... Hopefully should be changed in the near future to allow this type of customization...

    the custom "messages" tone for individual contacts is for emails, not text mesages. as for different profiles try hub++ in blackberry world.

    Sorry, but this is wrong. If you go into the individual contact in your Contacts app, you can set custom Phone and Text Message Ringers. I know some have had issues getting this to work, but if you search in the forums you should find some threads with possible solutions. Off the top of my head, I can tell you that any .mid (midi) files, will not work for any notification sounds. Other than that, I have about 6 or 7 contacts with custom phone and text ringers so I know it does work.

    is there a shortcut for this? I like to keep my phone on silent while at work, and turn notifications on when I'm done. It's a pain in the *** to go into settings every time to change it?

    As for the work and normal profiles, all I can suggest is to adjust the volume of the "normal" profile to a quiter, lower volume while at work and then turning it back up to full or higher while not at work. Not an ideal solution, more of a work around, but until its addressed in a future update, I *believe* I've read that this will be addressed in a future update, this is the best I can offer. As mentioned, you can try HUB++ in BlackBerry World, though I have heard/read mixed reviews on it.

    Swipe down from the top of the screen to bring up the short menu, then I believe that by tapping the Notification Icon, not the word, it will activate the Silent profile I believe. I have also read that doing this will instead activate the last used profile, but every time I do this, it is Silent profile that gets activated.

    I have searched this forum and I couldn't find the work around mentioned above.

    I have tones that I used on my 9800, they will work as ringtones. So they are good,working tones. But I can't set them up as message notification. What I have read is that message notification is for email. Can't confirm this.

    I, too, have tried it and I only get the custom message tone when that contact sends an email, not text. any text from that contact gets the default text tone.

    edit: all my tones are mp3. and I know for a fact it doesn't work for me because these notifications are set for my gf's contact. I text back and forth with her daily. only when I get an email from her do I hear the custom tone.

    By tapping the Notifications Icon from the pull down menu, you can change between Normal Profile and another profile (mode) selected in the System Settings/Notifications screen. For example, if you select Vibrate Only from the pull down menu of the Mode button in the Notifications screen, as I did, then you can ( as I do everyday ) switch between Vibrate Only and Normal by simply tapping the Notifications Icon from the pull down menu in the Main screen. I don't have to reopen Settings every time I want to change between the two profiles. But it's limited to these two options. It's crazy.

    I hope this behavior gets corrected soon...
