    Is there anyway to change the beep of an incoming DC to something else? With
    my company giving out Nextels, when one beeps, everyone is looking at their
    phone. Is there a way I can change mine to something different?
    Phone is an i95cl

    Re: Changing DC Beep

    you can change your alert to any ringer or ringtone you want, thats about
    it. Tell people to send you private alerts and you'll be all set.

    Ok, third time: he's not trying to change "Alert".

    He's trying to change "ba-da-beep". And you can't.

    I thought he was referring to the beep after each push of the button. I
    could live without that constant beeping.

    He is, and -- if you think about it for a moment, you'll realize --
    no, you can't.

    Re: Changing DC Beep

    Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression that after the
    initial contact (& first beep) the channels would automatically switch as
    needed and this would be transparent to the user. The computer system knows
    where both phones are & as long as they don't relocate there should be no
    need for all the beeping. The beeps thereafter, I thought are only for a
    indicator as to when the other person has stopped talking. Does that make
    any sense?

    Nope. Sorry. :-) I'm not certain how Nextel's iDEN internal
    network routing actually flies, but in general, on *any* digital
    trunking system, there's *always* a go-ahead-and-talk beep of some
    stripe, so that the user doesn't end up talking when the system
    isn't going to be able to get the packets there.

    Note that this does *not* necessarily apply to *analog* trunking
    systems, like 900MHz public safety stuff, wherein, as you note, the
    system sometimes dedicates a channel to the conversation once it finds
    one.

    Annoyingly enough, the Nextel system *could* have made it possible to
    interrupt people, but they didn't bother. Guess what: you can do it
    anyway: *switch modes* all the way around to Private again, then key
    up.

    Cheers,

    Re: Changing DC Beep

    Motorola SmartNet & SmartZone, Erricsson EDACS, and Johnson trunking
    systems that are utilized in public safety applications "all beep back"
    at you when a channel grant has been provided to the user when
    programmed to do so in the radio. I have personally managed 3 or the 4
    types mentioned above and have seen the 4th one in use in MiamiDade
    County (FL). Now the portable can be programmed so it doesn't beep, but
    most of the systems program the radio to give the user the channel grant
    beep.

    Also there are no 900 MHz allocations dedicated to public safety. They
    reside in 800 either interleaved with NEXTEL (and other CMRS carriers)
    or in the 821 MHz NPSPAC allocation in addition to UHF and VHF.

    Motorola, is the people to call...
    I had many custom things done to my old i700 by them.
