Add a contact alert

You can create contact alerts that allow you to customize ring tones and alerts for calls and messages from specific contacts or groups of contacts. When you receive a call or message from the contact, your BlackBerry® device uses the assigned ring tone or alert, even if you select the Silent profile or Vibrate Only profile. If you do not want to be notified with the assigned ring tone or alert, you can select the All Alerts Off profile.
  1. On the Home screen, click the Sound and Alert Profiles icon.
  2. Click Change Sounds and Alerts > Sounds for Contacts > Add Contact Alert.
  3. In the Name field, type the name of the contact alert.
  4. In the Contacts field, type the name of the contact.
  5. Click a contact.
  6. Change the ring tone and alert information for calls and messages.
  7. Press the Menu key > Save.
After you finish: To delete a contact alert, highlight the contact alert that you want to delete. Press the Image of Menu key key > Delete.
