Turn on bedside mode

When bedside mode is turned on, you're not notified of new messages, but any alarms that you have set will sound and your BlackBerry device displays the time, dimly lit. You can also set the option to turn on Battery Saving Mode, or to turn off wireless connections when in Bedside Mode.
  1. In the Clock app, swipe down from the top of the screen.
  2. Tap The Bedside Mode icon.

Tip: When your alarm goes off in Bedside Mode, you can tap anywhere on the screen to snooze the alarm. To turn off the alarm in Bedside Mode, swipe up from the bottom of the screen.

Change your Bedside Mode settings

When your device is in Bedside Mode, you can choose to automatically turn on Battery Saving Mode, or turn off all wireless connections.

  2. Tap The Settings icon.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • Turn on the Battery Saving in Bedside Mode switch.
