I have found no way that iPhone is able to do what I need here. I have iOS 6.x (jailbroken).

I would like to set 3-4 Sounds themes (basic feature of all Nokia). Example I need:

  • Normal: vibrance ok, sounds normal
  • High tone: volume up
  • Silence: vibrance ok but only with a single low tone to alert of SMS, email etc
  • Dead: no vibrance, no sounds.

Is there any app or somethign that let me set this 4 profiles?

I have not been able to find a way to do this with either jailbreak tweaks nor with the built in iOS.

(Please note I know I can switch between silence and do not disturb, but I want to personalize this profiles, also I need high tone profile)

    I can't comment on jailbroken apps, as I haven't jailbroken since 2008. However, I can confirm that there is no way to replicate the Nokia-style sound profiles on iOS. You can turn the ringer volume up for High Tone, and you can toggle vibrate on and off in Settings. I understand this is not the same. This is something that frustrated me when I switched from Nokia to iPhone but have since come to appreciate the simplicity of the vibrate switch.

  • @bispymusic, very well put. I have (and still am) observing one individual switch from BB to iPhone and another from Android to iPhone. The main thing I have noticed (particularly with the x-BB user) is that they got used to the (over)-complexity of particularly the BB system. Overtime, the appreciation for simplicity comes.

  • Anyone know if this will change with iOS 7?

SBProfiles will let you set up profiles for lots of settings on your phone - including sound and vibration. Here's a YouTube video:


Intelliborn once had an app called MyProfiles (http://intelliborn.com/myprofiles.html) but it has been discontinued and only works on iOS 4

  • Yes SBProfiles is what it get closer to my question. The problem with SBprofiles is that you can't change the ring for the various profiles... Or can you?

  • I don't think you can change the ring. Wish someone would develop an app to make it easy like the old Nokia phones.

Yes you can! But now sbsettings does not support IOS 7 yes. But earlier versions there is no problem.

    The OP is on iOS 6, so you should provide some more detailed information on how this can be accomplished. Commented Dec 31, 2013 at 5:26
