    Looking for a time/day-based profile manager to manage settings on the soon-to-be-purchased 3G iphone.

    As an example I want to be able to have a profile that:-

    Switches Bluetooth on 06:30-09:00 Mon-Fri
    Switches Bluetooth on 17:00-18:30 Mon-Fri
    Switches Bluetooth on 07:30-23:00 Sat & Sun
    Prevents ringing/text tones &etc 23:00-06:30 daily (but allows alarms)
    Switches WiFi off 09:30-12:30 Mon-Fri
    Switches WiFi off 13:30-19:00 Mon-Fri

    That sort of thing. Any suggestions (aside from remembering to do it all manually:))

    I really don't recall ever seeing a profiles sort of app that does all this for the iPhone, at least not automatically / on a scheduled basis.

    A (very good) manual alternative is the BossPrefs app for toggling on / off BT, WiFi, SSH etc ...

    Thanks for this.

    Seems like a great opportunity for a developer to add something to App store for this. If it could also change ringer volume profiles dependent on time of day and add over-ride profiles for meetings &etc I'd easily be persuaded to part with $30 or so:)

    Photo Contacts Pro offers some of this for WM6 smartphones, although it's based mostly on managing contacts. Those guys might look at iPhone now that App store is on the way - fingers crossed:)

    I think you're right - an app like this would likely do very well in the App Store, though I'd hope the price might be lower than $30 and I wonder whether this is another area where Apple's restrictions (on system access etc) will preclude anyone from doing it properly ...

    There is "auto profile manager" app

    Search for "auto profile manager" on cydia. It does what you want. You can create different profiles and schedules. It will change profile according to the schedule. It has option to:) sync with calendar and change profile when there is meeting.

    Yeah, this isn't currently possible with the restrictions that Apple has set on the App Store.
