I have to admit that Autoprofiles for S60 3rd editions devices looks pretty neat, but I’m having a debate with myself as to whether I really need it.
As you may or may not know I recently converted back to using Nokia devices, even after all the comments I made about the N70 when I first got it.
Prior to my current s60 devices I used an SPV M3100 and prior to that an SPV C600 (which I still use as my work mobile). The C600 comes with automatic as a profile and automatically switches to meeting when your calendar has an entry.
This all sounds great , yet I found that I missed a calls when it had auto flipped to meeting as my calendar said there was a conf call, but the call never happened or finished early.
I also attend a lot of meetings with senior people working in very large organisations and it’s OK to have your mobile go off in these meetings if your waiting for a call. If the meeting is important to you then just turn your phone off. The trick is also not to have a fashionable musically ring tone too, they just irritate people and you look slightly silly.
So for me, a sensible ring tone, set on ascending and a sensible message alert tone works in all environments…save your money. [via]
