BB Tour 9630 :: Contact List Not Following Default Ring Tone
May 4, 2010
I have set my default ring tone under the Sounds, media, options and even custom profiles, but my contacts all stay on the classic ringer unless I go into each one individually and edit them. Which is a HUGE pain in the arse! I just want all my contacts to follow the ring tone I set on the phone and they refuse to follow the default
I have a Storm2 and my wife has a Tour. I need some help with hers. All of a sudden her phone ring tone has switched from "calypso" to "bb pro1". When you check her settings in profiles it still shows "calypso"! I have battery pulled and tried to change the tone to almost every other tone on the phone with no luck.
I recently downloaded the new update for my Blackberry Tour, and I have noticed that my phone is not remembering its settings (im assuming). When I have my phone holstered, it only vibrates twice and does not ring (though I have it set to Always for the ringtone) for my MMS/SMS messages. When its out of holster, it will only do the default text messing sound. I am not sure how to fix this though I have rebooted it twice in attempts for the settings.
Today, suddenly, my contacts won;t sync with Outlook. i tried to change the Default Contact list, but the only opion is a gmail account that is not on my phone anymore, not my Outlook account. How do i get the Outlook account back?
So the 'Normal' profile of my 9700 (Phone) is set up to play ALWAYS simply because it is on my desk in the office, it is not in the holster, and I want to hear when it rings. I also have a ring tone that I downloaded (not the default).I noticed that when the phone is in the holster and it rings, as soon as I take it out from the holster the ring tonne changes from the one I set up to the default AT&T ring tone.
I am new to this device and I had Verizon transfer all 300 of my contacts from my old phone to the tour. When I ran email set up with my gmail account i didn't notice that i checked the contacts box and it deleted all 300 of the contacts I had changed over and left only 20 or so (who i imagine are from my gmail account). I deleted the gmail account from my phone, is there a way to delete the gmail list from my contact list? I go to options and it's the only contact list in my phone and it doesn't give me an option to delete. I even tried re-adding the gmail account to my phone and unchecking the contact list button--to no avail.
I've been having a problem lately with my ringers... I have one custom MP3 ringtone for all my contacts. My problem is all of my contacts somehow have a custom (or personalized) ringer. When I edit my contact details and go into Custom Ring Tones/Alerts,they ALL have Ringer_ClassicPhone as the personalized ringer...
Is there any way to re-set all my "personalized" ringers for my contacts or somehow make them default to my profile's set ringer?Also, I recently installed BerryBuzz and I believe this started happening (or at least I noticed it) afterwards...
Ok so i bought a BB 9630 Tour couple days ago. and i have a question.so i set my girlfriend as a specific ringtone. but i usually use silent when i am at home, and one day she called me and guess what, the phone rang.so here is the question, how do you make the contact ring when it is in like when my normal is activated BUT NOT MY SILENT. cuz when i do silent and when she calls me and my phone rings... it doesnt really make sense cuz i put it as in silent.
When I connect my iPhone running 5.01 to my mac vie iTunes, and transfer contacts, it always duplicates the contacts when synching.So if I have a single John Doe entry on both my iPhone and Mac, I now get two.Sometimes it will make 3 or 4 copies.I want to: copy my contact list from my iPhone TO my Mac, and update existing entries on my mac, and add new ones that are on my iPhone and not on the Mac, andtransfer contacts from Mac to iPhone that are new to the iPhone Basically,I have to separate contact lists that I dont want to mix or mesh entirely, and I also want to stop them from duplicating.The User Manual does not address keeping them from duplicating.
So I had 1 default ring tone. It was an MP3 snippet and it worked on any contact set to default ring tone or to an unrecognized call. No issues.ast week I changed this default ring tone to be a different MP3 snippet.What I am finding is that any contact that is set to 'default ring tone' now plays a Motorola electroni telephone ring sound instead of the new default ring tone.Im looking for a way to correct this globally. What I have done in the mean time is edit a contact, change the ring tone to something else then back to default and it works from that point on.
"How can I force the Contacts app on my 9780 to only load 1 of my contact lists by default?"
Context:I have 2 primary sources of contact information on my blackberry, my personal (gmail contacts) and my work contacts (via google apps). I would like to keep these contact lists separate and apart from one another, but accessible if required. However, as this device is primarily for work, I'd like to not have my personal contacts appearing every time i open the Contacts app. The effect I am trying to achieve is after opening contacts --> click menu --> click "Select Contact List..." --> and choosing one.Is there a way to save this as a preference/default so I don't have to filter each time i open my contact list?
I couldn't find a thread with this specific problem. I have certain contacts that I have specific ringtones for when they call. But I don't want to have a custom text ringer for those people. Whenever I set a custom ringer for those contacts, it automatically changes the text ringer as well. Is there any way to only give them a custom call-tone and leave all text messages as the same tone?
I have some new tones I have downloaded on my BlackBerry Tour 9630. I have tried to set a different tone on an incoming text message but it still plays the one pre-loaded on it. How can I can I change the text message tone to a different one that I have downloaded, I have tested the tone on incoming call, but I would like it on text message because I have the tone I want on a call.
Im posting this for my friend who has a tour 9630 as shes having an issue that verizon cant seem to fix. maybe you guys can help her out"ok when i go in my verizon wireless tones and go to ringback tones, then go to manage my ringbacks and try to set a certain song for a certain caller the 0 works as a space. So i cannot use any phone numbers that have a zero in it. and if i make an error on someones name that im tying to put in i cant backspace the name to correct it i have to exit out of the whole program."
I've figured out how to quickly change from a ring tone to vibrate by holding the # key, however I still get ring tones when I get a facebook message. I can't have my phone go off all day at work so how do I put FB messages on vibrate as well?
This may be the same question, but is there one quick fix to silence absolutely everything (ring, text message, FB messages)?
my BB Tour stopped recognizing the contact alerts I set up. Verizon the cell carrier wasn't any help. I have deleted and reset. Shutdown the phone including disconnecting the battery-nothing helps. Does anyone know how to fix? Phone is a week old-New.
On my VZW Tour with the just out OS. I can't seem to set my default calendar? In Options/Adv/default services I have it set. But when in calendar and I try to add a new event it defaults to a different email address then I want it to.
I am trying to change existing contacts that were unknowing saved in "Unknown Contact List" to "Default Contact List" can someone please explain if/how I can do this???? I have already tried deleting my address book and restoring it but that didnt work..i need my contacts in default to make the Vlingo app to work...
Okay folks the problem here is exactly what it sounds like: my BlackBerry Tour has a habit of playing my custom ring tones despite the fact I have the phones volume set to silent in the active profile.This is a behavior I have spent about two hours trying to correct and have been unable to discern a viable solution anywhere. I've got into the settings for the ring tones, theoretically they should be silent along with everything else but it doesn't matter, they continue to play. Normal ring tones do play silently, or rather those numbers to which I have not assigned a custom ring tone. Again this is a problem for me at work, so I'd really appreciate any guidance, it has been very difficult to find.
I just bought a bold 9700 and the default services for the contacts list is still showing the previous owner's email address. I am new to blackberry and can't figure out how to change this the calendar and email are both showing my email address but the default for contacts doesn't give me an option to change or select another address. I am running OS 6.
I am trying to change a CONTACT LIST from a hotmail account to an outlook account. However I just did a wipe and restore an the option of contact list has vanished from the default services. All I want to do is get the outlook contacts sync'd with my BBCurve.
Two days ago I added a gmail account to my Curve 8530. After that I noticed that I had many duplicate contacts in my address book. I went to gmail and merged the duplicates. After that, I downloaded google sync and tried to sync my contacts between gmail and my phone. After that I had some names listed 6 or 7 times. Needless to say it was quite frustrating.
I deleated the gmail account and deleated google sync. I turned off the phone and took the battery out for about a minute. After that, I installed the latest version of Desktop manager and succesfully synced my contacts with outlook on my computer. Now, I have single contacts with no duplicates. However, when I am in my contacts and select "Options," it lists my gmail account as the only option for "Contact Lists." Also, when I go to the home screen and select "Options" - "Default Services" - I do not have an option for contacts any more. It is gone. All I have there is "Calendar (CICAL):" and "Messaging (CMIME):" Where did my Contacts option go and why does it still show gmail as my contacts list?

I am having difficulty resetting the Contact List default, so I can synchronize my phone and Outlook email contacts and calendar. I recently added a gmail account and this has become the default. I need to reset the Contact List back.I have deleted the gmail account from my phone and restored older backups, this doesn't work.
I upgraded my Tour OS to 126.96.36.1999 yesterday and like it for the most part. However, I just found out a change I don't like. I tried to forward a MMS message to 11 people and get an error saying "Recipient list size exceeds limit." I have a group of people I forward stuff to. I don't want to go back to 4.7 because of something like this. Has anyone else run into this? Is there a fix or setting I may have missed?
Am I the only one having this problem? A search on Google displays nothing.I created a new group, and apparently only 10 people can be in a group at a time.
My entire contacts list has been wiped out as I changed my password and was unable to remember the new one. After 10 attempts, everything was wiped out. Is there any way, I can retrieve the conatct list data.
