Text alert volume has reduced and I can't turn it up
I could hear my text alerts until yesterday and now they are very quiet. In the menu when I test it it's loud but not when a real text comes in. It seems you can alter the volume of every sound the phone can make but not the volume of the text. Can anyone help please?

Settings In this menu, you can adjust various phone settings. To reset some menu settings to their default values, select Restore factory set. Tone settings Select Menu > Settings > Tone settings and from the available options: Ringing tone-To set the tone for incoming calls Ringing volume-To set the volume level for the ringing and message alert tones. If you set Ringing volume to be level 2 or above, your phone rings with the ringing volume ascending from level 1 to the level you have set when there is an incoming call. Vibrating alert-To set the phone to vibrate when you receive a call or a text message Message alert tone-To set the tone to sound when you receive a text message Warning tones-To set the phone to sound tones, for example, when the battery is running out of power
Mine does work after all. You can't make it vibrate but it will make a sound every five minutes after a missed call/text. The only problem is that the audible sound isn't very loud and I see no way of increasing the volume for it. I just assumed it didn't work because apparently it was too low for me to hear at the time. BUT IT'S BETTER THAN NOTHING!!! I'm just glad it works. Make sure your message reminder is set to "ON". Go to --->TOOLS & SETTINGS>SETTINGS>MESSAGING>MESSAGE SOUNDS>MESSAGE REMINDER> CHOOSE ON OR OFF. To test it.. Send a text to your phone but don't acknowledge or touch any buttons. Wait 5 minutes and your phone should make an alert noise. Keep the phone near you the whole time so you don't miss it. It will continue to alert you every 5 minutes until you acknowledge it.
Turn on your BlackBerry. Press the "Menu" key to go to the applications page, and scroll down to find the "Profiles" icon. Click the icon to enter the "Profiles" options menu.
Scroll down and click "Advanced."
Highlight the active profile and press the "Menu" key. Click "Edit."
Click "SMS Text." Change the field next to "Ring Tone" to your desired text tone. You can also change the volume and vibration option of the text message alerts from this screen. Press the "Menu" key when you are satisfied with your changes. Click "Save."
Go to Profiles, and choose a Customized Profile. Rename it to whatever you prefer. In this profile you can select your ring tone, message tone, volume, etc. I only had to do this once, and everything worked perfectly!
