    1. That depends how you have set it up. Go to

      Settings > Notifications

      Under Profiles, choose Bedside

      Then, choosee "Customize App Notifications" > Phone

      You can set the ring tone on or off.

  1. Hi again

    Do you have any hints how to change the sound notification for the voice mail on the BBZ10 ?

    Looks like there is only one default sound that cannot be modified...

    Thx

  2. Hi,

    I own a Z10.

    My screen turn off in about 12 seconds in the "on" mode.

    Can I change that ? Like set the delay to 1, 2 or 5 minutes ?
