View Full Version : Setting ringtones for SMS

04-19-2008, 01:30 PM
I receive many, many SMS messages from work and from another agency. I would like to know how to setup my 8830 so that when SMS messages come in, a specific ringer is activated. Very similar to custom phone ringers for specific contacts.

Thank you.

profile, advance, edit the one your using, goto sms text, i dont think you can have custom setting per phone but you should be able to edit the sms anyway. set tone/vibrate what sound and sound.

hope this helps.

I believe you are asking if you can set certain SMS ringers for certain contacts correct? This cannot be done without 3rd party software, but search for BBAlerts, I think you can do it with that.

Nick from IL, that is exactly what I want to do.

So I looked ay BB Alerts and it does not appear to do that. Are there any other 3rd parties that you know of?

OK, so BBAlert will not fix the issues arording to them. I followed the link provided (Thanks) and it fixed the issue, well.......for one time.

Now it appears that my 8830 is ignoring the specific profile I created.

Any other thoughts?

Double check your setup and/or pull the battery.

Also, try changing back to the normal profile, and back again to the new one you created. Battery pull should do it though
