1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    I've had the revolution for about a month so far and I love it. Especially after I rooted it and put in a debloated ROM.

    However there are a few things that my old BB storm did very well that I have not been able to figure out how to replicate on the revolution. Hopefully some one here can suggest something.

    #1 on my hit parade is that with the BB I could set the ringer/notification at night to be silent (no vibration etc...) unless it was a phone call coming in. I have not been able to duplicate that functionality so far. Is there a way of doing this?

    #2 that I'd like to see is the functionality of the Storm's keyboard. I loved being able to press the number button and have the number pad show up for just 1 number then revert back to the alpha keypad. A long press would keep the number pad up until the press was made to revert to alpha.

    For #1 you can create a custom shortcut that goes directly to Sound Settings then tap volume, uncheck "use incoming call volume for notifications" then you have a volume control for everything independently and you can turn everything down to 0 that you don't want to sound off while you're sleeping so that only calls ring through. Could be an app that allows you to create a profile for that as well, i've never looked for one though.

    As for #2, i think you're asking for an option to call up the dial pad? If you use Swype, you have the option to long press w/o changing to symbols to get one number. Personally i use Swype all the time. Takes a little getting used to but i can now text faster with it.

    For #2 try the "better keyboard" app. You'll love it!

    for number one, there are plenty of options. i personally use Tasker. it is a $6 app though. but it is fantastic. at 10:30 on week days, i have it dim the display, turn off all sound except alarm and incoming calls, and open the app "screen filter" to dim the display even more.
    i also have about 15 other profiles set up to do various things (turn on wifi when i get within 200 meters of my house, turn BT on and change volumes for everything when i get close to work, GPS on when maps or anything else needs it) it is a fantastic app.

    however audio manager pro has audio profiles that you can set with just one tap. quick and easy.
