    Hey, all. So, I'm coming from BlackBerry so please excuse the confusion. When I am at work I do not want my phone's notifications sounding. On BB, I had sound profiles customized so that I could set my notifications to vibrate or silent while at work and then switch it to Normal (received sound notifications) while at home. I'm wondering if there is a way to do this on the iPhone. Right now, I have it set so most of my sound notifications are 'None' and my phone ringtone is low (so that I don't receive sound notifications). I don't want to have to change this every day, but if I can't set up different profiles then I will leave my sound notifications at 'None' all the time. Thanks for any help.

    Are you aware of the ring/silent switch next to the volume buttons? Not the same as profiles but it sounds like it should meet your requirements.

    i know.. that threw me for a loop too. Was SOOO easy to just switch to different profile for diff situations on my BB.. but the switch is handy. its right above the volume buttons.

    you could also turn off the phone (press and hold the lock switch at the top till the slide to power off appears)

    Sound profiles are actually useful. Sometimes all or none isn't ideal. Don't get me wrong, I think the iPhone is great for the most part. It is odd sometimes that it lacks some of the most basic functionality of other phones. Although, knowing Apple, if there were an option for sound profiles, you would have to click through 12 submenus under settings to change them.

    I don't have an iphone yet, but will be getting one in February. When the iphone is plugged into the charger, does it alert you of emails? We don't have a landline anymore, so my kids know to call my cell phone if there is an emergency at night and I will answer because my blackberry is set to the sound profile "phone calls only".

    I will also miss the profiles, seems like that would be an easy fix, or even a simple app that would be worth the money,

    Does the 4s do a missed call notification when coming out of standby? I would miss that also.

    Hey app designers should be reading all this stuff that BB users will miss and get busy !
