GPS Services field to Location On.
Warning:
In an emergency, always provide detailed information
about your location to the emergency operator.

About profiles
Notification profiles are designed to alert you of
appointment and task reminders, and incoming
messages, calls, and browser content. You can create a
profile that specifies which sounds to use, whether to
notify you when the BlackBerry® device is in or out of
the holster, and what volume level to use. You can use
different sounds for each type of item.
The device has six preset notification profiles: Loud,
Vibrate, Quiet, Normal, Phone Only, and Off. You can
edit these default profiles, except for the Off profile.
You cannot delete them.

About custom notification
If you set the Use Profile field to Active Profile and you
do not change the Custom Phone Tune field, the
profile exception has no effect.
You can create exceptions to notification profiles to
receive different notification for incoming messages
and phone calls from specific contacts. For example,
you can create a profile exception that uses the Loud
profile when you receive messages and phone calls
from specific contacts, regardless of the active profile.
Profile exceptions are applied based on the order in
which they appear. If you create multiple profile
exceptions that include the same contact, you must
decide which one to apply first by placing that profile
exception higher in the list.
The BlackBerry® device has a preset profile exception
for important calls. You can add contacts to this profile
exception, or you can delete it.

Content protection is designed to encrypt your
BlackBerry® device data. When your device is

section of the screen indicates that encryption is in
progress. A closed lock indicates that encryption is
complete. After you type your device password, data
on your device is decrypted as you access it.
To use content protection, you must set a device
password.
Content compression is designed to reduce the size of
the data that is stored on your device and to maintain
the integrity of that data.

your BlackBerry® device and in your desktop email
program before synchronization occurs.
If you create calendar entries on your BlackBerry®
device that contain special accents or characters, and
your desktop computer does not support those accents
or characters, the characters do not appear in your
desktop calendar correctly. On your desktop computer,
verify that you have the correct default code page set
and that you have proper font support installed on
your computer. See your Microsoft® Windows® Online
Help for more information about setting the default
code page for your computer.

PIM synchronization and make changes to a PIM entry
in your desktop email program and on the device, the
conflicting information on the device is replaced by
the information in your desktop email program when
you turn on wireless PIM synchronization again. If you
want to select manually how conflicts are handled,
synchronize your device using the BlackBerry Desktop
Software before you turn on wireless PIM
synchronization.

on the New Address screen?
Why does the Add Custom Phone Tune option not
appear?
How do I change the volume level for the custom
phone tune?
Can I clear all the categories that apply to a contact,
task, or memo?
Can I remove the prompt that appears before I delete
contacts, calendar entries, tasks, or memos?
What are the User 1, User 2, User 3,

Address screen?
These fields are custom fields where you can add
information about your contacts, such as spouse name
or nickname. You can set up your BlackBerry® Desktop
Software to synchronize with these custom fields in
your desktop email program.
You can only synchronize the information in a custom
field with a text field in your desktop email program.
For example, you cannot add a contact’s birthday in a
custom field and synchronize it with your desktop
email program. The birthday field is a date field in
your desktop email program, not a text field.

tasks, or memos I have saved?
To change the field name for a custom field, when
creating or editing a contact, click the trackwheel.
Click Change Field Name.
How do I add multiple contacts with
the same name to my contact list?
See the BlackBerry Desktop Software Online Help for
more information about synchronizing custom fields
with fields in your desktop email program.
In the address book options, set the Allow Duplicate
Names field to Yes. Save the changes.
Can I change how my contacts or
tasks display?
Yes. In the address book, tasks, or memo options, set

in the menu if a custom phone tune has already been
added for the contact. A Calls From profile exception
appears in the profiles list for contacts with a custom
phone tune.
User Guide
How do I change the volume level
for the custom phone tune?
Custom phone tunes are based on the active
notification profile. When you add a custom phone
tune from the address book, the volume for the tune
matches the volume that is set in the active
notification profile. To create a custom phone tune
with a different volume level, in the profiles list, create
an exception that is based on a profile that is different
from the active profile.
Can I clear all the categories that
apply to a contact, task, or memo?
Yes. When editing the contact, task, or memo, click the
trackwheel. Click Categories. Click the trackwheel.
Click Clear Selection. Save the changes.

appears before I delete contacts,
calendar entries, tasks, or memos?
Yes. In the address book, calendar, tasks, or memo

Appointments in your device calendar that are older
than the number of days that you specify in the Keep
Appointments field are deleted from your device. The

calendar reminders?
Yes. In the tasks or calendar options, set the Snooze
field.
