appointment based profiles seem to work. Unfortunately time scheduled profiles don't work when the device is in standby mode for too long time. Will fix this severe bug asap.

Some first things to consider to add:
- It would be handy to have a default profile setting. Meaning a profile that would be set, when no other profiles rules are met.
- with appointment based profile, it would be good to add the possibility to use privacy of appointments. As I use my agenda for both work as well as private. However I don't want my phone to go to vibrate during a private appointment, as it needs to do during a business appointment.
That is where using the privacy would come in and make sure that only appointments with no privacy are used for switching to this profile.
@1: default profile - good idea. G-Profile has already this function but only very basic. If there is no active profile and there is an appointment it remembers the default values and restores them afterwards...
But you're right: a default profile is important...
@2: time profiles will be improved in some later version with many different time patterns (similar to G-Alarm)
@3: privacy of appts: unfortunately this requires some more work because this is not in the registry but in pocketoutlook itself. I'll add it - promised!

a) For the Volume, rather than specifying Normal, Vibrate, Soft - I would like to like to see the slider to increase/decrease the volume level to the amount I want for each profile...
b) I do nott know if this is possible or not - but if a command line interface can be integrated to switch profiles then - imagine the flexibilty covered. Apps like UL, TC and other UI's used for daily use can open up immense doors...once command, one icon and profile changes !!
c) Specifying of differnet Ringtones, Alerts for different profiles...
my 2p thoughts on the to do lists...a) and c) is already available on Profiles for Windows Mobile - but b) is something that would really benefit!
a) There are already volume sliders which are only visible when you specifiy "Normal"
b) very good idea. Of course, this is possible! I will add this feature...
c) different ringtones: good idea, which alerts do you mean?

also for this it would be good to have to weighting system whereby this would override a profile that would have been in use already.
I: headset/handsfree profiles will come soon...
II: I don't really understand the meaning? do you mean that an profile which may not override other profiles can only be activated when the default profile is set?
some other questions:
I'm not really sure if the wifi control works on every device - have you any problems to report, yet?
I wrote down all of your ideas, maybe I can release some features soon... First of all there will be bugfixing and some new important features. Afterwards there will be some gui improvements...
