    Different notification sounds for different contacts

    Ive been trying to set contact specific notification sounds. I have a song clip from myxer for my main notification(email and text) sound that really like for general purposes, but it's to much for my work email and work text messages that I get bombarded with during the day. Help me furbearingmamal!

    To set specific ringtone per contact, open the contact, press the menu key, and select "options". There you will see "Ringtone" where you can choose the ringtone for that specific contact.

    That works to set ringtones, but what about notification tones for text messages?

    Ok, I misunderstood what you were asking. For something like that you'll need a third party SMS app. I know Handcent is one that will allow individual alerts for users and I'm sure others too. Handcent is the only one that I've used, so the only one I can say for sure.
    When rooting your device, preparation makes all the difference.

    Thanks! Handcent works well. It's almost TOO customisable, but I'm getting used to it.

    Is that the pay version? I'm using the free version and don't see any way to do this?

    Help a droid newbie, please?

    On handcent, open the message, at the top right is an icon, tap it, choose what you want to customize for that contact . Notification settings is the top choice, tap it, go from there

    Thanks. Some of this stuff is counterintuitive to a PC user/Legacy programmer. I expect to have similar issues when I try to write my first app.
