The BlackBerry Curve is an amazing device that offers plenty of advanced features and capabilities that for many users can be overwhelming. One of its best features is its ability to notify you when you an email is received from one of your email accounts. Let’s find out more about setting BlackBerry Curve email alerts.
To set an alert you will have to press “Menu”, “Profiles” and then “Advanced”. From this new window you will have to select one of the options available (Normal, Loud) and then choose Messages/Email. The next step is to select a specific sound and save your changes. For instance, if you are in a meeting and you don’t want disturb the others with your loud email alerts you should choose the vibrate mode. This vibrate alert mode can be set only for one or all your email accounts, based on your personal choice. Keep in mind that even if the email alert is set to vibrate, it doesn’t mean that all the other alerts are automatically set to this mode. You can set all your smartphone’s alerts to the vibrate mode in the same time only if you choose the vibrate profile for all the alerts of your device.
You also have the possibility to set the email alert sound to normal in order to instantly know when a new e-mail becomes available. This normal mode will make a pretty loud noise, so that you can hear it even from another room in case your phone isn’t with you. You should also remember that you can set a specific alert sound for each one of your accounts or the same alert for all your accounts. You can also set your email alert to be a loud tone when you are in a noisy environment. This latter possibility is perfect for those who spend a lot of time outdoors, at the stadium or in the car in crowded traffic.
I also need to mention that sometimes you might experience problems while using BlackBerry Curve email alerts. According to some BlackBerry Curve users these alerts can fail to work from time to time. For instance, if an IM or a SMS messages is sent to your smartphone in the same time with an email, you will hear a strange alert or no e-mail alert because it’s pretty difficult for the smartphone to separate one alert from the other or produce the two in the same time. The best way to solve this problem is by rebooting the device. Once the reboot process is finished all the email alert settings will be restored and fortunately they will start working as expected from that moment on.
