    Can't set a custom tone for messages

    Advertisement



    This may sound like a stupid question, but I can't figure out how to set a custom message tone for people in my address book. I can set custom tones for ringers but not message tones, I have T-mobile so maybe that's a feature that's locked?
    Can anyone help me out?
    Thanks in advance...

    For messages do this...

    While in profiles...
    Advanced
    New Profile
    Name: ( Whatever you desire I use the persons name )
    Insert your custom ring tone under each specific place: Phone / MMS / SMS / Etc.
    Save

    While in profiles...
    New Exception
    Name: Same as you used to name the profile
    From: Add name
    Use Profile: [specify the profile you created]
    Uncheck box for Custom Phone Tune
    save

    I am confused are you trying to set a custom tune to SMS? If so, here:

    Profiles
    Advanced
    Menu-->then EDIT
    SMS Text

    TMO's pretty good about not locking features so I really don't recommend assuming that's ever the case unless they drastically change their policies down the road.
