The long answer is you also have the ability to set up custom ringtones for contacts that play no matter how the person contacts you. i.e. if they text message you, it plays the same tone as when they call you. This involves setting up custom profiles and exceptions in the Profiles menu. If you're interested in how to do it once you get your phone, PM me and I can post the instructions in a thread or link you to another thread where its been discussed.

Welcome to the Stacks!
Could you please give the instructions to how to assign sms tone for specific contact? I'm fairly new and very confused. Thanks!!!
