I don't think so.
can i assign a different text message alert to different people in my phone book? </IMG>
I don't think so.
Actually, this may be possible, because I do it for emails from different people.
To do this you could set up a profile for each person in your address book that you want special tones for. Then set exceptions for when you receive messages from them to alert you with a different tone.
Let us know if it works...
WHOO HOO! i think it will work on the 8100. thanks Chris! i'll let you know once i get it all set up, but the functionality seems to be there!Originally Posted by cp6169
thanks cp for all your help but i'm still stuck!
Except for cp's special method for emails, I don't think it will work as the SMS message is sent to the Phone Numbers and Exceptions for Phone numbers only work for Phone Calls
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ I just set a new profile for my girlfriend, made a new exception for her, and then sent a text to test it, low and behold it played my special tune! Works great!
can you explain how you are setting up the profiles to work for messages because mine is not working
and does the profile you set up have to be active in order for the exceptions to work??
Exactly -- how does having profiles for different contacts work when you can only have one active profile?
On the Pearl you can have exceptions, the phone will do what ever the profile says, except for the exceptions. this is how MyFaves works, My Faves Makes an Blaknet exception. But this only effects rintones not SMSOriginally Posted by takeshi

Spelling doesn’t determine your I.Q.
I understand how exceptions work.
The question is how does cp6169's mutiple profile solution work for unique SMS and email alerts since you can only have one profile active at one time. He says that he created a profile and exception for his girlfriend which doesn't make sense to me.
In the exception you create, you tell it to use the (inactive) profile. Your ACTIVE profile works for everything BUT the exceptions.
I have a BB 8700c.....can I pleaze get specific directions on how to set up individual text message alerts on my phone
