Dear Berry

Hello again dear readers. It's time to once again open up the mailbag and clear up any BlackBerry woes you may have. This week's question comes from one of Stephen L and he writes:

Dear Berry, Do you know if it is possible to turn off the very loud low-battery alert in the Playbook? The alarm has gone off a number of times in the middle of the night, waking up the entire family - making my Playbook less popular.

Thanks S

Dear Stephen,

Unfortunately there does not seem to be a way to change that particular setting on the BlackBerry PlayBook. I feel your pain as I myself have been dead asleep only to have been awoken by the nagging chime you speak of. My best advice, try to make sure it's on the charger at night before you go to bed or at the very least, turn the PlayBook off at night.

If anyone in the community has a solution for Stephen's problem - please let us know! We'd love to find an answer to this question. 

Thank you for sending this in Stephen! If you need further assistance, be sure to hit up our BlackBerry Help page or check out the BlackBerry PlayBook forums for any of your OS 2.0 questions.
