About ring tones, sounds, and alerts

The profile that you select in the Sound and Alert Profiles application defines how your BlackBerry® device alerts you of phone

calls, messages, reminders, and browser content.
Your device has a Normal profile and five other preloaded profiles: Loud, Medium, Vibrate Only, Silent, and Phone Calls Only.

You can change the tones in any preloaded profile to an audio file that is stored in your device memory or on a media card, or

you can create additional profiles. The All Alerts Off profile cannot be changed.
By default, some of the settings in the preloaded profiles are based on the settings in the Normal profile. For example, when

you change the ring tone in the Normal profile, the ring tone in the Loud profile, Medium profile, and Phone Calls Only profile

is automatically updated. If you do not want specific settings for a preloaded profile to update automatically when you change

the corresponding setting in the Normal profile, you can manually change the settings in that preloaded profile.
You can create contact alerts, which alert you when particular contacts call you or send you a message. Contact alerts are

always turned on, and do not turn off unless you select the All Alerts Off profile. For example, even if you select the Silent

profile or Vibrate Only profile, audible contact alerts remain audible until you select the All Alerts Off profile.
