    No, Thats not true. You assign a custom ringtone for incoming calls. You assign custom ringtones or notifiers for SMS, MMS, and e-mail. But when you assign the ringtone for the caller ID, thats what it will be-for the incoming ringtone only.

    That would be sweet to be able to set a ringtone for the actual contact, so that if they either call, email or SMS text you..you would hear the assigned tone!!

    I think it would be better if it was taken a step further, like if you could assign separate sounds/rintones for individual contacts. For instance:

    John Smith
    Home 1-856-654-9877 <- Ringtone A
    Cell 1-856-654-9876 <- Ringtone B
    Email blahblah@blah.net <- Ringtone C
    SMS +1-856-654-9876 <- Ringtone D
    MMS +1-856-654-9876 <- Ringtone E


    I mean the method is already there with how the system is set up globally on the BB, it would be a small fix to make it apply for the contacts individually. And then for people that dont want to put that much detail you could put at the bottom, "use this ringtone for everything on this contact" option.

    Good idea Remy, that seems way more intuitive and probably much more effective.....either of the options mentioned on this thread would be better then what we have now! we can only hope
