For example, someone who does not wish to have ringtones at all, such as an operator in an operating room requiring silence, will have an interest in selecting ‘No Priority’ or equivalent in this menu. As such this operator will not have ringtones, vibration or even light from his screen.

Priority modes are available through the ‘Settings’ menu, available from the main screen of your Alcatel 1b. Once in this menu, you can go down to the ‘Sounds and notifications’ menu, then to ‘Ringtones’. In this last menu of your Alcatel 1b you will have a choice between these three options:

  • No ringtone: no vibration, no ringtone or even no lighting up screen.

    Even the alarm clock and other emergency messages from your Alcatel 1b will be disabled.

  • Mode ‘All’: the silent mode of your Alcatel 1b is deactivated.
