    Re: Different SMS notifications for different contacts

    Yes. The way you do it is to go to the Profiles Menu-->Advanced-->Menu Button-->New Profile

    Create a new profile for the person you want custom notify. I usually name the profile after the person. In the new profile, scroll down to "SMS Text" and click on it. In that menu change the notify tune for in holster/out of holster as you require it. Save it and close.

    Next in the Advanced profiles menu, create a "new exception". Again, name it after the person you're creating for.

    In the exception, change "Active Profile" to the profile name that you just created. Then change the notifier tune to the same tune you use for the contact.

    Save and close.

    Now when you get a text from this person the ringtone will work the same as if they were calling you.

    Note: The exception overrides any profile you have active. So if you set the phone on vibrate or silent because you're at work, this ringtone will sound anyway.

    When you're in the Profile creation menu, you'll probably notice that you can change the notify tune for just about everything. So you can also have the custom tone set up for email messages from the contact (if you have their email address associated with the contact) and just about anything you want. Among many other possibilities.

    Re: Different SMS notifications for different contacts

    It works for me, but once I delete the exception, it goes back to the normal ringtone for the Loud Profile. How can I resolve the issue that I am having. I want the different ringtone for the user, but I think in theory that it should still work without the exception though???? Please advise me of the resolution for my issue.....

    Thanx in advance........

    Lemme double check on it and make sure.

    Are you changing the Phone settings AND the SMS Settings in your custom profile? You have to set up the ringtone for each function that you want the custom alert to work with.

    I went back and played around with it a little bit. You definitely need the exception for the profile to work for the contact for SMS and other functions.

    Good point, Clif, I forgot to mention unchecking the box.

    Thanks to all for the Trust, I really appreciate it. I'll be sharing as well.
