    Did you go to profiles > edit profiles > normal or whatever profile you want > instant messages > blackberry messenger alert?

    How do you not have a profile menu? It's the icon that has the speaker so you can adjust your volume settings.

    Phone profiles, then edit profiles is what everyone is talking about, there you can edit all your sounds for all types of messages

    That's how you set your bb mesenger tones. At least try what I said earlier and see if it leads you to what you're looking for.

    Hit the profiles (speaker icon), scroll to bottom of list. Pick edit profiles, select the profile you wish to edit. Open up instant messages, pick BlackBerry Messenger and change it. You have to do it for every profile you use.

    Can you not read what I and others told you do? That's exactly what we said. Maybe you should read profiles.

    Looks like multiple people told ya exactly what to do and you were to dense to figure it out. If you could comprehend it you would now know multiple ways to achieve the desired outcome.

    Here's your sign......

    Whys that? so you agree its not simple?

    Like i said the WHOLE OF GOOGLE suggest going to OPTIONS then PROFILE. This is not possible as it doesnt exist.

    I found it thanks to posts on this thread. So quit jumping the gun so quickly trying to make out i am not listening to what people have posted because i have hence how i found where it is.

    As i say No google search brings up the REAL WAY to find the alerts, none of my friends knew they all told me to goto options and profile is in there.

    Whos thick me my friends and the whole of google? you must be gifted then if you knew exactly where the menu was. Even nobody knew on here they just gave a rough idea of where it might be.

    You're an i.d.i.o.t and you're lack of ability to type coherent messages is proof on top of your constant arguing with us when we're telling you exactly how to resolve the issue.

    No actually it is quite simple and user friendly in my opinion. I found almost every function of the phone and apps I have put on it to be very easy to figure out. **** my twelve year old picked it up and had no problem figuring out most of it.

    Just saying maybe its not simple enough for you.
