I just purchased the Tour yesterday, my first Blackberry. I cannot figure out how to work the volume on the phone. I'm really hoping that I'm missing something. The typical volume buttons on the side of the phone do not do anything. You can click the "Sounds" button/folder and choose a sound setting, but please tell me you can control the volume some way by the buttons on the side of the phone. Even though you click on this button/folder, you cant just control the volume up and down to choose the level you want. I go in and out of work all the time and need to be able to just turn my phone up and down as needed quickly without having to go in and click on some folder every time. Is there some kind of setting I need to turn on in order to use those buttons?
Do you mean call volume or the ringer volume? The buttons on the side do not control the ringer volume, they only control the in-call volume. To change the ringer volume you need to change the profile entirely and there's several profiles to choose from that you can edit, or create your own profiles.
I'm talking about ringer volume. Call volume works, but there isn't a way to beable to change the ringer volume using those buttons? I find it very annoying to have to preset volume levels and then have to go in and change the level from either normal, medium, or loud.
Pardon the hijack, but can you give an example of how one would set up a custom profile in the ringer volume? Not the mechanics, but what one could do different from the pre set ones? I tried to make an escalating ringer that way and it didn't work.
Well I'm definitely gonna do that. It's my biggest pet peeve about this phone up to this point. But then again, I'm still learning. There's so much to figure out with this phone as its my first BB
