Question 8800 Contact Management

Please Login to Remove!

Just got an 8800 and I am using it with Outlook. I would like to do some quick and dirty contact management with a focus on the following:
  • grouping contacts into a few categories (business, personal, important)
  • assigning a ringtone to a whole category
  • doing all of this with Excel or similar tool (via import export)

For example, I am pretty simple; I would like for incoming e-mails ALWAYS to vibrate regardless of source. I would like my normal phone profile to have a simple, moderately loud ring plus vibrate except for important calls which I would like to have a different ring. I would also like to be able to switch to a vibrate only and silent for all incoming phone calls; and also an all silent (including e-mail) profile. I know the 8800 has filters, profiles, exceptions, groups and the ability to assign a different ringtone to individual contacts. I can also import/export in Outlook and the 8800 will sync with that. I am just looking for a good way to proceed.
