I never looked into what BB OS versions this will work with. Basically as long as there is the option to create a new Exception in Profiles, you are able to do this. I have tested as low as 22.214.171.1247.
Create a new profile. It will be used for that person only.
Name the profile. The person's name is good.
Edit Messages notifications to what you would like.
Save the profile
Create a new Exception. It will be used for that person and profile only.
Name the Exception. The person's name is good.
Add their name to the Name field.
Change 'Use Profile' to be the profile ou created.
Edit the Custom Phone Tone if you would like.
Save the Exception
Now when you get email from that user it will use the custom Message notification. The same custom Profile for that person applies for SMS messages from them and phone calls.
so one would have to create a profile for EVERY contact ?
