BlackBerry Profiles

Sometimes having too many sound profiles on your BlackBerry can be annoying. Normal, Loud, Quiet, Silent, Vibrate ... do you really need them all? Personally I really just stick with Silent, Medium and Vibrate for most uses. I've actually migrated my Medium profile to Normal seeing as the Normal profile I rarely touched. I've eliminated all the profiles that never got used, making switching between them easier and slimming down in the process. If you're like me and don't go crazy with profile switching you can knock out a few as well. Keep reading for a few quick steps on how to delete those unused sound profiles on your BlackBerry.

Highlight the profile you'd like to remove. Press the menu key and choose Delete. That's it!! Keep in mind both the Normal and Vibrate Only profiles cannot be removed. 

Now you're one step closer to a slimmer BlackBerry. Having fewer profiles lets you keep things straight so you know what's what.  If you don't use the additional profiles there's really no use in having them around, right?
