    I am so glad to see your answer. The key word was scroll down to ADVANCED. Many others on this support site just said click on PROFILES and click BLACKBERRY key. That didn't work. Your instructions were crystal clear. Thanks! Now if could only copy one entire profile over to another?!?

    Hi! I've been reading on the forums for a good while, not many posts.

    But now I have 2 problems that I haven't found answers to.

    I have the Curve 8310 from AT&T.

    My first problem is:
    Randomly every few months all my text messages, emails, bbmessenges, yahoo messenges etc - deletes.
    Everything. Gone.
    I could be having multi conversations, then bam, all gone. I have even seen it happen right after I sent a message, just disappear in front of me.
    I end up taking my battery out, start up again, and months later, all happen again.

    Any reason why?
    I have everything set up to "keep forever". So it's not like it is set up to clear everything out at a certain time.

    My other problem is:
    I would like to know if there is a way to set Voice Mail to its own tone?

    What happens is, say sister texts me, she has her own text tone. Then mom calls, she has her own ring tone, she leaves a voice message, the sound for the VM will be the last text message tone that I received - which will be sisters text tone.

    This also happens with Facebook messages. Someone updates their FB status that I am subscribed to, it will use the last text tone that I received. Or if someone replies to my status it uses the last text tone that I received.

    I would really like to set up a separate one for this/these.

    THANKS for all the help on other issues! Love my BB Curve!

    There isn't enough memory on your phone to keep all those messages forever. delete some and the problem will be fixed. Back up your messages onto your computer if you really want to save them all. Then delete them off of your BB.

    So it's because of memory?
    All this time?
    I am lazy about deleting texts.
    So if I delete daily text, I shouldn't have a problem losing the 'wanted' texts and bbmess and yahoo mess etc?

    Thanks!

    Okie Dokie!
    I updated from 4.2 to 4.5 yesterday. Took foooorever, but I finally figured it all out.

    Not sure yet if it helped with memory, and I have been trying to delete un needed texts and such.

    Hopefully with all the new stuff I added, I wont run out of memory!

    I have a bold on at&t with their most current update I have created profiles and made exceptions for some of my contacts the sms and phone ringtones work but the mms ringtone does not work it just plays the one in the normal profile that I am using. I also noticed that my mms number shows as a +1 then my phone number would this have anything to do with it? Any solutions would be helpful and oh yea I have vis voicemail installed but I am not using it.

    Is there a post that walks you through it step by step (for dummies). I'm trying to help a co-worker (8350i) out with his and it just isn't working.

    Is there anyway to set my bb curve 8330 to only let 2 to 3 important people ring in and everything and everyone else silent? I've tried to create a profile for that but nothing is working.

    I've gotten the individual ring tones set, can a person also customize a tone for incoming text messages from individuals in your contact list?

    You should be able to do that using the Important Calls profile exception like this:
    1. Go into Profiles then Advanced
    2. Scroll down to where it says Important Calls and make sure it's checked.
    3. menu key->Edit and scroll to the From: line
    4. menu key->Add Name and pick a contact from the list. You can do this as many times as you'd like if you want. The Profile exception will apply when any of those contacts call.
    5. Scroll to Use Profile: and select the profile you want to use when they call. I'd guess you'd want Normal or even Loud in case you're sleeping.
    6. If you want, you can change the custom ringtone to use as well.
    7. Escape/back key and save your changes

    This profile exception will be used no matter what profile is running when the call comes in, so it overrides everything else.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi all apologies in advance but I am a newbie! ;-) I seriously need this option but can't find this on the blackberry bold 9700! Please can anyone help me locate this option becasue I'm sick and tired of getiing woken up with pointless phone calls! Lol.

    Right, found it! Its under PROFILES>SET CONTACT ALERTS on the Blackberry Bold 9700.

    Now, I have another question as I am more confused ....

    This is what I want - I have amended the "Phone Calls Only" setting. But when I add a contact under set contact alerts a few things happen..

    Firstly, this is exactly what I want, the calls that I want, do correctly filter through. BUT, when I change my profile back to "vibrate only" that call will again, ring instead of just abiding to the vibrating function of the selected profile?? How can I get the specific contact to filter through, only the selected CONTACT ALERTS in "phone Calls Only," but when I change to the vibrating function I need it to abide to that profile.

    Does this make sense guys? If so, please help me as I am easily disturbed by unnecessary phone calls during the knight! Need to filter it through to just a few specific numbers without affecting the other profiles...

    Previously to this BB Bold 9700 I used to be a Nokia E71 user, and the call filter system on that was dearly loved Hope this wonderful device has an equal system.....

    Thanks again guys!
