Hi am new to the iPhone world. I currently have a Blackberry and I want to switch to the new iPhone. I currently use, as a ring tone, the combination of "vibrate" and a Blackberry notifier called "BB pro-5". Is it possible to somehow get this same or similar notifier sound for the iPhone? Also, is it possible to set up the ringer not to make a sound until a few seconds of vibrate have taken place?
Thanks in advance for your kind help.

I just did a very quick Google and found every ringtone from a Blackberry Bold. Here is the link:

RapidShare: 1-CLICK Web hosting - Easy Filehosting

You would then have to download a music editor to put a silent sound for the first 2 or 3 seconds then have the ringtone start. Then the iPhone would start vibrating without a sound and then it would play the ringtone. Remember to make the ringtone into .mp3 for 30secs (no more), put it into your iTunes library. Then right click the song, click Convert to AAC. Then go to the iTunes Library folder and find it in the new format (.m4a) rename it to a .m4r file (ringtone file). Then sync that file to your phone and VIOLA!

If you have any questions, let me know and I'll try to help you out.

I made this up real fast with GarageBand, I used the link that benparko gave. Not exactly sure how you wanted it to sound. Hope this is close. It's easy to edit, let me know what you think.
