Vibration mode, BB 8310

Vibration mode, BB 8310

Can anyone HELP? I can't get my BB 8310 to enter vibration mode. I have tried everything from AT&T user guides and manuals. Also tried some help from this forum. Nothing is working. The phone indicates that it is in "vibration mode". Is there a way to just test this to determine if the phone is working?

 

 

Thanks all.

Re: Vibration mode, BB 8310

Are you choosing the Vibrate profile via the Profile menu?  What happens?  I mean, how do you know it's not in the Vibrate profile?  Have you called, emailed, or done whatever it takes to trigger whatever alert you're trying to test?

 

Note that any profile exceptions (including custom ring tones for contacts) that you might have set up will override the active profile.

I had the same problem and had to exchange my blackberry for one that the vibrate mode worked.  Haven't had problems w/ it since.

thanks for your reply. Yes, I did change to the Vibrate mode via the profile menu and then called myself from my home phone. It did not work. I also went into the menu and set up the vibrate mode , under "advanced". Still does not work. I will take some time to try your other suggestions. Will let you know.

Thanks for your reply.

 

Did your BB not work from the very beginning or died after a while? Did the BB people or AT&T indicate that this was a known problem?

 

I might have to do the same but being a Quality Engineer it's puzzling to me. Just trying to understand what might have led up to your problem.

 

 

Thanks.

Re: Vibration mode, BB 8310

That definitely does sound like a device defect of some sort.  It shouldn't take anything other than just choosing the Vibrate profile (assuming that the profile hasn't been changed to not vibrate for any alerts for some reason).

Thanks again.

 

By the way do you happen to know, or know anyone that knows,  if this BB virbration mode is build into the battery or the unit?

To all:

 

AT&T could not fix my phone so they gave me a different one. Problem solved.
