You can use the notification profiles on your BlackBerry device to control how you're alerted to new
messages and phone calls. By default, your device includes seven notification profiles, including Normal,
Phone Calls Only, Vibrate Only, Silent, Do Not Disturb, Meeting, and Bedside. Each profile has a default
setting, but you can customize the settings and change things like the volume level and ringtone. You
can also add your own notification profiles and customize the settings.
Customized app notifications
You can set customized notification settings for apps within a specific profile. App-level customizations
are set on a per-profile basis, meaning you can set different notification settings for the same app. App
customizations override the settings for notification profiles.
You can set contact-specific notifications that can override the notification settings for profiles and apps,
depending on how the notification settings are set up. The contact customizations can be set to override
the settings for the notification profiles and any customized app notification settings that you set, or the
contact-specific notifications can follow the settings.
Level 1 alerts
You can also set Level 1 alerts for specific messages and receive custom notifications for these
messages that override all existing notification settings.
