Default Individual ring tones

Please Login to Remove!

Hi all

I searched the threads before I posted (but quite possibly missed it).

Question: can I make individual ring-tones - a separate ring-tone for different people? I have a 7230.

Sorry, you can not set ring tones to individual people...
You are basically stuck with two tones; in holster and out of holster.

I heard there are some nifty BlackBerryOS 4.0 API routines that might make a third party caller-ID ringtone utility possible.... but I don`t think someone has taken advantage of that yet.

With all the neat utilities made possible by OS4 (BBToday today screen, BBLights backlight utility, the Reply-To utility, etc), it is probably a matter of time before some frustrated developer does something about it.

Hint, hint -- to lurkers who are programmers -- we have a BlackBerry Development forum here!
