    My Curve is on borrowed time and I’m considering a switch. I have worked through all but 2 things…multi-tasking and notification profiles (not sure that I can live without either)

    Is it possible to have notification profiles similar to the setup on the BB?
    Here is an example of what I do today…combination of standard BB capability and AlertMatrix by Rex Wireless.

    Profile ‘Normal’ — sets the following.
    • Phone (normal ringtone for everyone, but a special one for my wife)
    • Email (vibrate and ringtone, special tone for wife, different special tone for my boss)

    Virtually every notification can be customized by (vibrate, vibrate and tone, volume, # of beeps, flashing LED, etc.)

    I have similar setups for ‘In-Car’, ‘Night’, ‘Loud’, etc. that change the types of notifications. This is incredibly flexible on BB.

    How close could I get on the iPhone? I am more than happy to purchase an app to make this possible.

    You can't do this on the iPhone. The only "profiles" are ring and silent. You might be able to do this with a jailbreak app but no official apps as they are not allowed to mess with the settings.

    Agree, even my old Razr had ring profiles. Cross fingers for 4.0 OS.

    You can turn sounds on/off for all new emails and for all calendar alerts, and change the sounds for text messages. But you can't change the sounds or assign the alerts to certain profiles. I agree that different profiles and more flexibility here would be great. It seems like there is more flexibility with push notification settings than for some of the other settings.
