    What's the best app that would come close to the BB profile manager?

    I'd like to have presets for "work" (vibe only), "car" (loud ring), "sleep" (LED only).

    Also, it would be great to be able to edit the vibrate pattern. I don't need 6 vibes, just one for certain notifications, two for others, etc.

    Any recommendations?

    The only one I have found that is close to the one I had on my storm is "Quick Profiles" available on the Market.

    Thanks. Do you know if you can adjust or set the vibrate pattern?

    As far as I know you cannot set the pattern for vibrate, but you can specify if you want to use ringtone, vibrate, or both.

    You can also set wifi, bluetooth, all the different volumes, notifications sound, etc. It makes it really easy to setup a car, home, and work profiles.

    You can adjust all notifications but the vibrate is just on or off. (LED colors can be changed) I have three settings:
    Normal--all on high volume and vibrate
    Meeting--LED and vibrate only
    Bedtime--notifications on LED only all other volume on high.

    You can use Smart Vibrator from the market. I used this with my Eris phone and it workded great. Haven't tried it or needed it on the X yet.

    So far, neither app will let you modify the default vibe pattern for emails. Any developers out there? ;-)

    Thanks all.

    I use Setting Profiles. It has a widget that you can manually change profiles, and it can be set to change by time, location, etc. too. I think it is a paid app though, but at the time it was the best I found available.

    I've heard people say Tasker is good to, but don't have any experience with it.

    Tired of manually adjust your phone's ringer mode/volume everyday?
    For example, adjust ringer to vibrate or silent when arrive at office/classroom/library to avoid disturbing phone rings, and adjust ringer back to normal after leave those places to avoid missing calls.
    Afraid of not setting the ringer properly and check it several times a day?

    Say goodbye to the hassle and embarrassment now! Let Smarter Profiles automatically switch your predefined phone profiles for you based on your predefined profile triggering rules.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    A profile is consisted of a set of triggering rules and settings.

    Triggering rules:
    - Wi-Fi network(s) detected
    - Day of week
    - Time of day

    Settings:
    - Ringer mode [Normal, Vibrate, Silent]
    - Ringer volume
    - Notification volume
    - System volume
    - Alarm volume
    - Media volume
    - Voice call volume

    Profiles are prioritized based on triggering rules' specificity to provide an intuitive and convenient way for solving conflicts. When conditions (location/time) meet two or more profiles' triggering rules, the one that has the highest priority will be selected.

    A profile's priority is determined by:
    - Number of Wi-Fi network(s) (more Wi-Fi => more specific => higher priority)
    - Number of days of week (less days => more specific => higher priority)
    - Time span of day (less time => more specific => higher priority)

    For example, a profile that specifies 2 Wi-Fi networks, effective 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM, Monday through Friday, is more specific than another one that does not specify Wi-Fi networks, and is effective at all times (12:00 AM - 11:59 PM, Sunday through Saturday).

    By default, the display order of the defined profiles is based on their priorities, so that you can conveniently have a general idea of how they will be applied when there are some overlaps of triggering rules.

    You can always create general "back up" profiles to let Smarter Profiles take care of your Ringer and Volume related settings anytime anywhere.
    For example, a profile that doesn't specify Wi-Fi network(s), effective every day of week (Su Mo Tu We Th Fr Sa), and from 8:00 AM to 11:59 PM will take care of general daytime Ringer and Volume settings, and another one with similar rules for the nighttime.
    When no other more specific profiles (e.g. location related such as "Office", "School", etc.) are detected, these least specific profiles will always be there to ensure proper ringer settings defined by you.

    Smarter Profiles is simple and easy, essential for your everyday practical needs but not overwhelm you by the daunting long list of settings. Why not use it to make your life just a bit easier?
