Tips & Tricks: Hold Down # To Toggle Between Vibrate & Previous Profile

Back in the day when I had my T-Mobile 7100t I had one feature that I loved. I could hold down the # key to toggle between vibrate and my previous profile. I used it all the time. Then I switched to my 8700c and it no longer worked!

I thought that RIM removed the feature. I asked Nate, Luis, Luciano, & others to check on their 8XXX series devices and it did not work for them. Even when they had dial from homescreen disabled it still tried to create a speed dial key.

Then Gareth told me to hold down the # key on my Bold and I was shocked when it worked!!! BOOOYAHHH! Looks like RIM returned the feature!

Thanks a TON RIM!

PS: Sorry if this is something everybody knew already but this is news to me!

  1. Doesn't work for my 8310

  2. Works on my 8220 Flip!

  3. already knew that – though I remember it as the Q key that I have to press – for quiet.

    also, the A key will lock your phone for you.

  4. Hi,

    Rather then device specific it seems to be OS dependent. This because it does work on my Pearl 8100 which I recently upgraded to version 4.5 build



  5. Great, it works on my pearl too, RIM returned this feature in the new os, I think.

  6. So maybe it is only for the Bold and Pearl models? Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

  7. If you have 4.2 or 4.5 on the 8700 it worked by pressing the mute key. On the bold the mute goes to standby.

  8. works on my 8130

  9. and * for lock
