    Question select Ringtone for Category

    Advertisement



    Hi everyone, I just got pearl. So far I like the phone a lot except a typing the full keyboard worked better for me, but I guess that will just take a time to get use to it. I have a one challenge I can not figure it out, HOW DO I CHOOSE RINGTONE FOR WHOLE CATEGORY?
    I have few categories I need to select special ring tone, but from manual and all other information sources I can not find out, I use to have Treo 750 and that was one of the good thing, on windows software they actually have future that when someone call it says their name or phone number, besides that I’m not fan of Treo’s for their slow, very slow functionality, at least that was my experience. Your site was highly recommended to me, if anyone knows how to select tone for category, please help.

    As of right now I don't think it is possible to do that. Correct me if I'm wrong but I tried to figure out your problem and couldn't figure it out.

    Sorry I couldn't help,

    I asked the same question yesterday David, but nobody could tell me so I think there is no solution as of now. I added the same ring tone individually to persons in the category. its a pain, especially if its a big category. sorry couldn't help, but if you'll start doing it now, it will save you on the research time, b/c frankly I think there is no option for a category ring-tone. Good luck.

    The only way is to create a New Exception for each category from your Profiles/Advanced menu. You will have to add each contact separately using the Add Contact function Repetitively. It will take a few minutes but it can be done. When in the Address book for the first Contact of each category use the Filter function and select the proper category. Just keep adding contacts. Then complete the creation of the Exception.

    Hope this helps

    shira, did you use the New Exception in profiles to add contacts or did you just add the custom tone to each contact?

    I just added the custom tone to each contact. Will try your method, however, am not quite sure how to go to Profile/Advanced menu

    Go to the Profiles using the Icon/Menu depending on your theme, scroll to the bottom of the list and click on Advanced. This is where you can edit your profiles and add new exceptions.

    hope this helps
