Magic Profiles Pro is the best utility for Sony Ericsson P800/P900/P910 devices that allows you to manage various phone profiles, to enable a full call management, to set profiles according to your location in GSM network and much more as system sounds and Bluetooth control.
Using Magic Profiles Pro, you will never experience any problems enabling, for example, a silent mode for night time or meetings, a loud mode for an outside or car driving, and much more, any imaginable alert settings. You can bind these profiles not only to 24-hours' grid, but for workdays and holidays, defining rules and exceptions. Your smartphone will automatically switch between the profiles offering a comfortable work with the device.
Our handy call manager will give you the full power of controlling incoming calls. You can create white and black lists with any corresponding actions, from rejecting a call to forwarding, sending SMS and more.
With various profiles, you can control the most of phone features in just one touching of your smartphone's screen. Change rings, sounds, messages, vibrations, sound volume of ring and talking, at one moment! Using this application you can create any number of profiles and switch between them instantly - in the same way as on an ordinary mobile phone.
Magic Profiles Pro understands your Calendar's appointments and follows them. Now and forever you can forget all about these manipulations with ring volume, melodies, vibrating alerts, etc.
At last but not at least, Magic Profiles Pro can determine your location within a GSM network (using cell ids). You will never make a mistake enabling profiles being at work or at home, because Magic Profiles Pro always knows where you are.
To open Magic Profiles Pro, tap its icon in the Applications list. Alternatively, go to Control Panel > General > Magic Profiles Pro. Now let's go through all the tabs to learn this application.
It's the main screen with general settings. Here you can:
- Enable the program itself. When enabled, Magic Profiles Pro replaces the standard sound dialog and allows you to switch between profiles in one tap. The program must be enabled to work.
- Enable automatic profiles' switcher. When disabled, you can work with Magic Profiles Pro in manual mode.
- Enable cell id support. You can bind profiles to your location within a GSM network. So you'll be able to create various profiles for your home, work, favorite pub and so on.
Other settings include:
- Send to background after profile selection in FC mode. This may be useful if you prefer to return to default screen when working with Magic Profiles Pro in Flip Closed mode.
- Show status icon. Status icon can show you the current state: white list, black list, rejecting all calls, automatic switching enabled (see below for details).
Magic Profiles Pro can show a status icon both in FO and FC modes:
- FO: black list mode (do not accept calls from the black list);
- FO: white list mode (accept calls only from the white list);
- FO: reject all calls;
- FO: (green clock) - automatic profile switching enabled;
- FC: black list mode (do not accept calls from the black list);
- FC: white list mode (accept calls only from the white list);
- FC: reject all calls.
Here you can view, create, edit and delete profiles. You can have as many profiles as you wish.
To create a new profile, tap the button with the plus sign, then enter a desired name for this profile.
To sort profiles, use "arrow up" and "arrow down" buttons. To edit a profile, use the pencil button. To delete a profile, tap the cross sign.
Profiles: 'General' tab
Profiles: 'Sounds' tab
In the General tab you can choose:
In the Sounds tab you can specify any sound for every incoming event. (Note: P900 has an additional option titled “Ring (voice) Line 2”).
Profiles: 'System sounds' tab
Profiles: 'Volume' tab
In the System sounds tab, you can set following sounds:
In the Volume, you can change a sound volume, turn an increasing ring on/off, switch a vibrating alert on and off.
Profiles: 'Advanced' tab
Profiles: 'Bluetooth' tab
In the Advanced, you can:
In the Bluetooth tab, you can control your Bluetooth settings.
Now, after creating some profiles, it's high time you bind them to working hours (or days).
Time table tab
Editing a time rule
You may create as many time table rules as you wish, and make any settings! There can be a rule for every day, for any day of week, etc.
Not only to time settings, you can bind profiles to Calendar's entries!
Editing a calendar rule
- Enter a “Holiday” word. When Magic Profiles Pro finds this word in your Calendar entry, it always considers this day as a holiday. This will help you to create exceptions for other rules (extra holidays, vacations, calendar changes, etc). Note: you should create an “All day event” Calendar entry! You may also use “Location” field.
- Enter a “Workday” word. When Magic Profiles Pro finds this word in your Calendar entry, it always considers this day as a working day. This will help you to create exceptions for other rules (extra working days, calendar changes, etc). Note: you should create an “All day event” Calendar entry! You may also use “Location” field.
Create some rules which will work with special keywords. You should use these keywords in your Calendar when you want to tell Magic Profiles Pro if you are on a meeting etc. For example, create here a necessary rule for *meeting* word. Then, enter this word (exactly) in one of your Calendar entries. When Magic Profiles Pro finds this word, your phone will be automatically switched to the according profile. You may also use “Location” field.
Magic Profiles Pro can use GSM cell ids to recognize your location within a network. Here you can edit various locations and bind your profiles to them.
Editing a location
This feature can be very useful if you like to bind profiles to your location. For example, create a profile "Office", associate it with cells (every location can have several cells) - that's all! Now you don't have to think about other rules (time table, calendar) when you are at office.
Whenever you leave the office the scheduled profile will get activated and whenever you get back to the office, the office profile will get activated!
You can work with locations (globe icon) as usual: sort, add, edit, delete. Cells (antenna icon) may be deleted only.
Car kit settings
Magic Profiles Pro can automatically detect car kit connection and acivate the corresponding profile! Now you can forget about time settings or locations while travelling to office or returning home in the car. Car mode is the best wat to activate the necessary profile.
Even if you don't have a car, you can use Car mode on external power connection.
Here you can create your own groups of contacts for "Black list" / "White list" / "Reject with custom action" modes. Magic Profiles Pro uses standard Contacts database, but can handle its own groups with custom settings.
Contact lists tab
Editing a Contact list
Note that you can place one contact in any number of groups. Every contact can have its own Reject action and its own SMS text.
Here you can set some options related to SMS.
When a profile's default reject action is set to "Reply by SMS", you may want to limit SMS number to save money (1...2 per day, 1...4 per hour, Unlimited).
You can also set a "Send to" option:
You must know about priorities to customize your profiles correctly. Here are the default priorities (see below how to control them):
1. Calendar (the highest priority).
3. Time table (the lowest priority).
Time rules have their own priorities: first weekday rules, then workday/weekend rules follow, and then every day rules at last. For example, you made such settings:
- Calendar rule with the keyword *meeting* -> profile Meeting;
- Time table rules:
- - 09:00 / Monday -> profile Profile1
- - 09:00 / Workday -> profile Profile2
- - 09:00 / Weekend -> profile Profile3
Then if you have a Calendar entry “Monday, 09:00-09:30, *meeting*”, the Meeting profile will be set on this day, at this time (9:00). At 9:30, the Profile1 will be activated. On Tuesday-Friday, the Profile2 will work. And on Saturday-Sunday, the Profile3 will finish the week.
Magic Profiles Pro v1.2 allows you to control (change) rules priorities.
Default - doesn't change rule priority;
High - overrides Locations' priority;
Highest - overrides Calendar's priority.
Here is the arranged table:
1 - Time table (default; can be changed to High and Highest);
2 - Locations (default; can be changed to Highest);
3 - High priority;
4 - Calendar (this value cannot be changed);
5 - Highest priority.
For example, you may want to enable Flight mode on 01:00 independently of your location, Calendar entries and so on. In this case you should create a Time table rule and set its priority to Highest.
To have quick access to all of your profiles from any application, simply tap the sound icon on your statusbar.
Quick access to profiles
Working with location
Also you can see your current location (lower box titled "Office" on the left screenshot above). Tapping this box will call a corresponding menu allowing to work with a current cell.
At last, now you have an easy access to all Magic Profiles Pro' preferences - just tap the “Prefs” button.
You can work with Magic Profiles Pro in FC mode. Run Magic Profiles Pro as usual.
Flip Closed mode
FC mode: menu
Left screen: profile "Home" selected, autoswitching is on (green icon), cell id support is on (location bar visible), current location is "Home".
Right screen: profile "Office" selected, autoswitching is off (red icon), cell id support is on (location bar visible), current location is "Home".
When you choose a profile (manually), you'll get a message “Profile XXX activated”. Note that the autoswitcher will be disabled (automatically), otherwise it could override this manual profile selection.
FC mode: menu
FC mode: cell id unavailable
Left screen: FC menu. Here you can control autoswitching and work with cell support. Cell id is always linked with a location, therefore you can: either disassociate linked cell ("4236" here) or associate unlinked cell with a location.
Right screen: cell id unavailable (cannot be determined by the program).
You may press “C” button to access the scheduler's menu.
It is always recommended to create a so-called Default profile. This profile will be activated if there are no other rules active at this moment. A very useful feature!
To use a Default profile, create a new rule in the time table:
00:00 Everyday -> Normal
(“Normal” is a name of the profile you want to use by default). Thus, this rule will have the lowest priority. It will only work if there are no other rules active at this time. Note that everyday, at 0:00, your profile will be changed to the Default one.
