    Thanks for the write up, but this still doesn't work like it did on 4.5





    No matter what, I still get sounds in the holster. Only fix is to change custom vibe to in holster only. But then everything vibrates the same. Two vibes for sms, mms, twitter, facebook, bbm, aim, you get the idea. I have no idea what kind of message is coming in. Why is this no longer possible?

    Welcome to BlackberryOS. That does seem to be an issue with only 4.5.

    Hello all;

    i'm not sure if anybody talk about youtube on the Tour. We all know that the youtube app doesn't work on the tour, all you simply do is on your phone browser, go to m.youtube.com and you should be able to play any youtube video on your phone.

    Thank you.

However anyone whose ring tone I have edited is now picking up the phone default for their mms sound instead of what I set for the profile. Anyone have any idea if there is a way to globally fix that or if I have to go in and edit the mms setting for each person I set to their own ring tone?
    This is how it is on the Storm too. I've just gotten in the habit of editing a contacts Messages sound at the same time I set the custom ringtone.

    Additional Tips and Tricks

    I was rummaging through some other sites and have compiled some cool tips and tricks for those using the Tour. Some of these are for any BB qwerty phone while others are specific to the Tour. I would like to thank Crackberry and Pinstack for some of these:

    1. Hold down the the letter Q to turn the ringers off and put it in vibrate mode. Press and hold Q again to turn it back on.
    2. Press and hold the letter A to lock the phone
    3. To reboot the phone, press and hold the alt key and the right shift key at the same time and then press delete
    4. While in the clock, press the BB button to get all sorts of option, such as changing the clock to digital, changing it to look like an old school bedside alarm clock, turning on the alarm clock, using the stopwatch, etc.
    5. Press and hold green talk button to pull up your contact list
    6. Press and hold BB button to get list of programs that are running in the background
    7. This is kind of for all bb's but people ask this anyway so I will put it here. If you type things that need 's at the end simply setup a quicktext to be s %b's and then when you type for example: Ted s it will turn it into Ted's
    also many shortcuts for the device are located in the help file right on the device.. open help select shortcuts. There is shortcuts all over its good to read them and learn them they can be very useful
    8. H while in browser takes u to ur homepage
    9. Additional browser tips:
    While in browser
    i to zoom in
    O to zoom out
    K to pull up bookmarks menu
    G to pull up url/search bars/history
    A to add the currrnt page as a bookmark
    U to increase screen space by removing the top bar
    And of course space and left-alt+space to page down/up, respectivley.
    10. In the browser press Z to switch between page view and column view
    11. Use the right convenience key while taking pictures. It is a two part key meaning you can hold it half way down to prefocus. Then you can either press the rest of the way down or push the trackball to immediately snap the picture.
    12. While in the camera, the space bar changes the flash settings between automatic, off and on plus it will turn on low light mode for video.
