FAQ: BBLight – How To Setup Simultaneous Vibrate & Ring Free

bblightvibe[2]When I mentioned BBLight adding free Vibrate+Ring functionality yesterday quite a few readers were confused about how to set it up. Tateu offered some advice on how to set it up since it is not straight forward so I thought I would share…

First download and install BBLight OTA at:

  • Click on the profile icon on your homescreen and select advanced
  • Select your active device profile to edit it
  • In there you will find a new entry for BBLight
  • Select the BBLight option and set it to Vibrate and repeat
  • Also set Notification to None and # of vibrations to 1
  • Click back and select the Phone setting in the list
  • Set your phone settings to Tone only
  • Click back and save and go back to your homescreen
  • Open the BBLight application and set “Vibration for Phone Calls to something other than 1

That is it!

Note: To turn off simultaneous vibration and ringing for a specific profile:

  1. In that device Profile, set BBlight to None
  2. In that device Profile, set Phone to None or Tone Only

To completely disable simultaneous vibration and ringing:

  1. In the BBlight application, set “Vibration for Phone Calls” to 0.
  2. And you can do the following but don’t really need to – In your active device Profile, set BBlight to None

  1. …Or just use BuzzMe. There’s nothing to configure.


    • BuzzMe also has zero ability to customize. With BBLight you can enable it/disable it for whatever profile you want, and even specify how it vibrates (length of each vibration and time between each vibration in milliseconds)… for the average user I guess BuzzMe works, but if you want total control get BBLight.

  2. Why is this better than Buzzme?
