    possible to have different ringtones for each contact?

    Advertisement



    Hey guys,

    it's my second day with my BB 8700c and i love it! been emailing, doing AIM, and surfing the web. I do have a quick question though.

    I d/l some mp3 ringtones to the 8700c, and would like to use a different ringtone for each of my contacts. is this possible? so when friend A calls, i want the ringtone to be different than when friend B calls.

    thanks for any help.

    It is available, when you are in the edit screen of the address book, place the cursor on the phone numbre, click the scroll wheel and choose add custom phone tune.

    Re: possible to have different ringtones for each contact?

    There are two methods for this. The first is the one mentioned above, but with some versions of 4.1.0.xxx OS, it has a limit in that you can't change the Use Profile setting from the default which in mine has always been Normal. This means it will always play the ringtone for that contact, even when you are using an Active Profile that is supposed to be quiet.

    The second method is to go to profiles and from the menu select New Exception. Name the Exception and add the contact or contacts you want to have the ringtone, select the ringtone to play for this exception and you can also set the Use Profile to Active or what ever profile you want it to use. If you select Active, it will use the settings of what ever profile is set to be Active. Except that when you have tone selected it will play the exception ringtone when one of the contacts in the exception calls.

    Hope that's understandable and that it helps.

    Rcbjr, thanks for that. you learn something new everyday! I didn't know about the exceptions, that sounds like a useful way to do it.

    The Really useful thing about using the New Exception in Profiles method is the ability to change the Use Profile option and the Multiple contact capability
