Hi everybody. Blackberry Curve user here, operating in a BES environment. Say, is it possible to assign a custom tone to one particular address book entry, when you receive an MMS or SMS? I know you can do that on a ringtone level for incoming calls, but I would like to do it for SMS and MMS too. Anybody got any ideas?
Actually there is a non-direct way. It involves creating a new Profile (you could name it for that contact, let's say Bob). In that Profile, named Bob, set the ringtone for SMS, mail, phone, etc., that you want from that contact to notify you.
Next, in your normal "active" profile (i.e., the profile you use) scroll down to advanced and "Use Active Profile Except for:".
Here you will create an exception, by clicking Menu, New Exception. Name the exception "Bob". In the FROM field, click Menu to Add Name, where you will place that contact entry name.
Next, under "Use Profile" you will click to change that option to the profile named "Bob". Also, again, add the custom phone tune you want "Bob" to have and make sure you have and enable that exception with the checkmark in the box.
Voila, now when your "Bob" calls, emails or sends an SMS, you will be alerted by it's own customized notification.
