yes you can at least you can on my phone BB curve 8530.
I had to change the sounds on my phone as my Husband and I have the same phones and it started getting comical when one phone would go off we'd both jump! LMAO
Lets see if I can walk you threw it....
go to your sounds Icon. there you can select a profile....
scroll down toll you see "set ring tones/alerts
in there you will find where you can change the sounds. Also understand that you can scroll down in the Sounds section to Edit profiles and in that you can set all kinds of things. I have a different profile for when I am sleeping and a louder one for when I am awake. in the sleeping profile I have all alerts shut off except for phone calls.
I hope this helps.

well all i did was plug my bb into the computer, theres somthing u can download from blackberry.com and u get it on ur desktop and i just went into the music file. clicked the songs i wanted and dragged them into the file. hope this helps

Kimmi, how do I download the free ringtones onto my BB ? When I click on Download now it wants to save it to my computer but I don't know what to do from there, I am not very computer savy so I don't even know what drag to means can you help me ??
Thanks Barbara

I am not tech savvy, so I didn't expect to have any problems at all the first time I attempted to do this. That being said is there any resource material online or otherwise to walk me through step by step so that I understand the basics of transferring media files. The Blackberry 101 demonstrator is great if you are tech savvy,but I found it frustrating when I first attempted to transfer files. Any guidance would be appreciated,regards,Phil.

Hello My husband and I use Ubuntu linux on our pc's so of course the soft ware we got with our BBc8530's did not work.
So we had file transfer issues as well. I will share how we got around it in hopes it helps you and others. I dont know about your phone but ours has a removable micro sd chip. So we got the micro sd chip adapter. you slide the tiny card into the normal sized card. now our pc's have sd slots. you might need to get a usb sd card reader if yours does not.
we then put the card into our pc and tell it to open. there we find pre-made folders that are titled ringtones, music, documents, etc. so we just drag and drop the file we want into the correct folder and thats it. we tell it to unmount/eject and then stick it back in the phone.

I really hope that helps

How do I sync my Blackberry calendar with my desktop calendar. I have heard I should use the Google Calendar on my desktop but I don't know how to set up the Blackberry calendar to sync with the desk top.

for me I had to go to gmail and hunt down the google app and install it on my phone. I forget where exactly I found it but it was in the section of more things for google. once I downloaded the app you click it and follow the prompts and it sync's it up. *looks for link real quick* ok here's the link I found. I hope it helps: http://www.google.com/support/calendar/bin/topic.py?topic=15305
if it does not I got it by going to gmail then to my calender and then clicking the sync link at the top right hand corner. it took me to the page I posted the link to. thats all the mobile sync stuff for calender. I hope its what you need.

Why is it that when I delete something on my phone it doesn't delete on my email account on my laptop and vice versa.
