    Can you set ringtones for notifications for individual contacts?

    Can you set a ringtone for text messages and gchats from individual contacts? i want to set a tone so when a particular person texts or chats me, i know its them. I see you can change notification tone, but that changes it for all, not just one individual contact.

    Depending on the messaging app you're using, most of them can be individually set by going directly into the messaging app settings... this should not change your phones general notifications.

    I have used both handcent and Go sms and like them both. Both are highly customizable. I'm currently a Go sms fangurl fwiw.

    Honestly? No. Though whoisit isn't free it will allow custom notifications to more things than the others. Any of the 4 are worth getting and I'd highly recommend any of them from using them for quite some time.
    If you are a heavy tester Handcent or Go would be my suggestion. They both clobber the stock text app. If you want custom contact notifications for text, gmail, k9 mail, mms, callers, set up vip contacts to ring even on silent then whoisit would make a nice addition, if memory serves it's .99. Ringo is basically for texts and calls contact ringtones but works great for it.

    Ok, d/l handcent... there is a ton of stuff in here to learn how to use... I cannot, however, find where you set tones for individual contacts...

    If you already have a message from a contact open it, upper right there is an icon, tap it, options for customizing show up. I will edit in a minute and post how to if there is no message yet. I don't remember and will have to try it to remember
