New BlackBerry Software

e-Mobile Phone Alerte-Mobile Phone Alert

A new addition to the Software Store, e-Mobile Phone Alert makes sure you never miss important phone calls you WANT to receive. You can set notifications by trackball/LED color, by buzzer or ringtones. You can setup custom alerts based on individual phone numbers, or even create custom rules based on area code and phone extensions. This is compatible with the Pearl, 8800, and 8300 series on OS 4.2 and up. It should be noted that the buzzer and ringtone alerts only work on the 8130 and 8120 and the changing trackball color only works with the 8100 (it's on the only trackball-equipped Berry to sport multiple LEDS within the ball).
