Is there anyway of extending the ring & vibration duration?

You can make it loop if you want :)


(Looping Ringtones)

This tweak works perfectly you should apply it to your ppc's:

While playing a wav or midi or a wma as the ringtone the phone has a delay of 3 seconds before repeating, now this is really annoying if you've just created that great wav,wma ringtone, spent time making it loop properly in sound editor or whatever, and then the ppc does the silly delay, well, here’s the fix...

Open the registry editor:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\ControlPanel\Sounds\RingTone0
Select 'Values'
And modify 'Script' by removing the w3 (eg. change 'av0pw3r' to 'av0pr')
"w3" stands for "Wait 3 seconds" you can make it "w1" or "w4" or remove to make the ringtone loops

Just to add another perspective, the amount of time the phone rings is actually a network setting (the time before it goes to the answering service) and can be changed by sending status codes to the service provider.

I'm sure if you google around a bit you will find the answer, but I changed mine from 20 seconds to 40 seconds, which greatly reduced my missed calls.

Edit: Done the googling for you. Check out this website (Tekguru) with a guide of sorts.

Hmm, few days ago, I found this reg values in the registry. I try some variations but with no success. I will check it again.

Maybe
a = alarm
v = vibrating
??

So, can I setup my phone, to vibrate periodic, while ringing continous a long WMA? Easyer to notify periodic, short vibrating, and it reduce battery usage I think.


Another question. I like siemens phones, because it plays a signal continously, while the ring-echo tone is hearable. It is good, because sometimes the started call interrupted.
With other phones like XDA, there is no signal while I waiting for the ring-echo tone. Sometimes the initiated call is interrupted, and I waiting for the nothing. The phone not notify me that the call is not completed.... :?

Can I make a Siemens-like tone for dialing?
(Can you understand what am I writing? :oops: )


Thank you!

i used a wma file for my incoming SMS, but when a message arrives and i am reading it, the wma file just keeps playing. Can i set this in such a way that when i open the message, the music stops?

thanks

i checked msdn , but couldn't find anything about the 'script' values :cry: this doesn't mean it isn't there, maybe I'm temporarily blind.

I would like to have my ringtone Vibrate then loop without pause with increasing volume, so i tried all the possibilities in phone settings and checked the registry :
Code:
script for  ring              : apw3r
            Increasing ring   : c50apw3c150r
            ring once         : p
            vibrate           : av3w3r
            vibrate and ring  : av0pw3r
            Vibrate then ring : v3w3apw3r

so as far as i could figure out :
v3 stands for vibrate 3 seconds and v0 stands for Vibrate continuous
p stands for play
w3 stands for wait 3 seconds
c50 sets the volume to 50 ? and C150 adds 150 ?
a & r are used as begin loop & end loop

so my final script is v3w3c50apc150r which means
1) vibrate 3 secs
2) wait 3 sec
3) set vol to 50
4) play
5) add 150 to volume
6) repeat from step 4

I'm not exactly sure about the volume settings, but it works (as long i don't change the phone settings thru control panel)

hope this helps anyone

You can change the script in the registry. However, whenever you open the Phone Setting and click OK (since there's no Cancel button), the new setting will overwrite your modified script.

I like staccato vibrating while ringing normaly.
Like this:

Code:
ring: --------------     --------------       ------------
vibr: -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -  -

I tryed some code variations, but didn't work.

In my Phone Profiles you have "staccato" vibration. I named it: pulsed vibrate. Both for rings and sms alerts.

I know that many users have problems with my Phone Profiles, but also I know how many users use it without problems (believe me: more). I still improve my softeware and make modifications and fixes. The problem depends from another software inside your hardware. Most of them are because IDCaller is inside the default OEM system in some hardware and users cannot remove this program. Alternatively you have not to use a advanced features from my software.

I give a free trial version to check how it works with your phone.
