    >Profiles
    >Scroll all the way down to advanced
    >Select profile with menu button
    >click edit
    >Find SMS and MMS

    You can change it here along with IMs, IM Alerts, BB Messenger and it's alerts, emails, and whatever else it has listed

    you can set ringtones for individuals, but not SMS/MMS/Email sounds. Those are global.

    Yeah, that's the only thing I don't like about the Blackberry. The only thing. The one and only thing that's unliked. Everything else outweighs that one thing of suckiness and still makes it the best device know to man!




    As in "Human kind."

    Maybe eventually RIM will come up with an OS Upgrade someday with that option.

    Or some genious will create an application.

    Or something

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    There is a way but it takes quite a bit of setup. Not exactly sure how to go about it either.

    You can set custom tones for SMS/MMS.... it is a little more complicated through...

    1.) Create a custom PROFILE that has the SMS/MMS alert tones to the custom tone you wish to use (name the profile the same name as the contact to make things easier, let's say "Tom")

    2.) Then create an exception under the advanced tab of the profiles screen that defines contact "Tom" to use profile "Tom"

    now whenever tom sends you a text or calls you it will use the settings under the "Tom" Profile instead of the active one.... careful with this though... i'll give you an example of how this can be problematic:

    Let's say you are in a meeting or the movies or something and you set your phone to vibrate... the new exception rule you created will override that and then if "Tom" calls it will still ring like normal unless you also disable the exception rule...

    This override function does not apply to the "Off" profile however... so if you want to make sure that your phone does not go off and you don't want to go through the hassle of disabling and reenabling the exceptions, just use the "Off" profile instead of the "Vibrate" one
