I just switched over to an iphone. I have used both Blackberry and Android phones. Both those phones had profile managers where you could create profiles based on rules or times that set variuos functions of the phone, most notably audio functions. I googled profile manager for iphone and saw a couple apps but none that said they were for IOS 5. Anyone know of one?

    You won't find any apps, because there are none for non-jailbroken iPhones. None would have access to the necessary API's to do what you want.

    I am also sad about this. Last late night I got frightened when my phone suddenly rang extremely loud, because I set it intentionally that loud formerly, but I forgot that. I dont beleive that no programmers at Apple can implement a simple, but apparently useful function to control the phone behaviours at least according to time/calendar. It seems that the iPhone users should be smarter than their smartphone to prevent themselves from unexpected actions.

    I'm sure they are quite capable of it. Apple has, however, chosen not to implement such a feature. You can let Apple know you'd like such a feature by using the appropriate link on the Feedback Page:

    I certainly hope I'm smarter than my phone.

    I'm sure you are smarter than your phone. As I am, at least so far.
    I only liked to emphasize how useful if some function is implemented in smartphones to help (to serve ) the users, such as the smart ringtone profiles, that I could use on my six or seven years old "dumbphone" already.  

     

    Anyway, thanks for your comment, I will try to leave a feedback later.
