Turn off your wireless and Bluetooth when they are not in use. If you leave your wireless settings on, your phone is constantly looking for a wireless connection, even if one isn't readily available. This eats up battery power. Touch "Manage Connections" from your home screen and select "Off" for wireless connection. Then turn your wireless on when you know a connection is available.
Close applications when you're finished using them. Leaving applications running uses memory and battery power, especially if those applications send you frequent notifications, like Facebook. Once you're done using an application, use the Blackberry button and select "Close" at the bottom of the menu to close the app completely and avoid notifications until you open the app again.
Use your applications wisely. If you're running short on battery life, it may not be a good time to run Google Maps or other applications that use a lot of battery power. In general, battery-consuming applications are those the need a constant internet or data connection and cause you to receive frequent notifications.
Change your vibrate notifications so that they occur less frequently, and use audio notifications when you can. Vibration actually uses more battery life than a ring tone. While you may need to put your phone on vibrate when you need to use your phone discreetly, shortening the amount of vibration notifications you get can conserve battery life. Choose "Options" from your home screen, and then "Sounds and Ringtones." Choose "Ringtones" from the drop down menu and select the type of ringtone you want. To decrease the volume of your vibration -- and therefore the power you use -- press the volume buttons on the side of the phone when the phone is in vibrate mode.
Decrease the backlight timeout, which keeps the keys on your Bold lit for a specified amount of time after you stop using them. The shorter the timeout, the less battery power you'll waste. Visit "Options" from your home screen and then choose "Screen/Keyboard." Adjust the backlight settings so you only have three to five second before timeout and the backlight shuts off. You can also use the settings to dim the backlight to use less power.
You can do this one of two ways. Either you can set a universal "Notification Tone" for your phone with the desired song, or you can set a specific notification tone for your particular messaging app.
To set a universal tone (which will play when messages arrive, and for calendar events and other "notification" type events), do this: - Go to your App Drawer and tap Settings - Tap "Sound" - Tap "Notification Ringtone" and select the song you want. If the song doesn't appear in your list, download RingDroid and use it to save the tone as a Notification tone. Basically, you'll just open the sound in RingDroid, tap the menu key and then save it as a notification tone.
If you only want the sound for a particular app, like the default messaging app, you'll need to open that app, tap the menu key, access the Settings menu and look for something like "Notification settings." In the default messaging app, the option is at the bottom of the Settings screen, and you tap "Select ringtone" to choose the sound you want to play when a message arrives.
You can set different tones for different types of incoming phone calls.You can download ringtones directly to your smartphone. You can also download ringtones to your computer and then email them to your phone.
1 Press Start and select Settings.
2 On the Personal tab, select Sounds & Notifications .
3 Select the Notifications tab.
4 Select the Event list, and then select the type of call for which you want to set the ringtone:
Are you getting any kind of error messages logging into your Yahoo Messenger or your Facebook Chat? What happens when you try logging into them?
In regards to loading pics on Facebook, try clearing the Facebook cach?. Open Facebook app, menu button, options, and then scroll down and clear the cach?. Algo, clear your old notifications by highlighting the date above the last notification, hitting menu button, and clearing all last notifications. Also, you may have a lot of photos on your phone. Clear out any photos you don't need on your phone anymore and save them on your computer or somewhere else. This should help with your phone lagging.

I think you need to install the application on your phone.
On your Blackberry menu, there's an icon that resembles a person's head that represents profiles. In the profiles menu, you can select the volume for the notifications you receive when messages or calls come in. Choose "Loud" to hear all notifications at an equal volume, equivalent to the maximum output possible.
Some ring tones just remain less audible than others even when they're set to maximum volume. If you've tried increasing the volume of your notifications but still can't hear the ringer sometimes, try downloading a custom ringtone from the Blackberry App Store.
When selecting a custom ringtone, choose something distinctive and hard to ignore. When previewing the tone, determine whether it seems louder or easier to hear than your existing tone. Download more than one tone and experiment throughout the day.
After you've downloaded custom ringtones, set your phone to use these ringers by going into the applicable notification profile. Select "Show Tunes" and open the media folder where you've chosen to save your downloaded tones. Select the ringer you want and click "Set as Phone Tune."
Check your profile settings and make sure that it is not set to phone only or all alerts off. If it is set correctly double check your ringtones and make sure they are set for sound. If those options are there then do a battery pull. If it still doesn't work then I would do a search on the crackberry.com website. It is a great site for all things blackberry.
Take the battery out for at least one full minute and then put it back in. I started experiencing the same problem last night, checked all of my profiles and nothing was on mute or silence, so I got online to look for a solution and taking the battery out is the only thing that worked, I LITERALLY just did it, so hopefully the fix lasts......
