    Go to Contacts and select the contact you want to assign a custom ringtone, then click the menu button and click on options. You will see Ringtone at the top: Click on that and select the ringtone you want for that contact.

    Thanks for this info. Any idea how much space we have available on the sd card for uploads? I know that on the Motorola there are 16gb of space in phone but when I look at internal phone storage it says that my available space is only 238mb. Any idea where the 16gb are being used? ...the operating system?

    Internal space is only 256 MB. The sd card is used for the xtras. Hook up your droid to your pc via the USB cable, then once connected check the notifications at the top (pull down) and click on the usb icon, will advise you to mount it. Once mounted you can see what is on that card.

    Here is what mine looks like so far. (check attachment) Just 1.5 GB of music, some images, ringtones, alarms, alerts, ect.

    Thanks for the info, I downloaded ringo lite and it solved my issue. I know how to set custom ringtones for my contacts, I just didn't know how to set custom notifications for when different contacts SMS me. It seems this isn't possible without an app. Again, thx for the help tho...

    I am assuming you are using a Windows OS. Nothing will necessarily pop up when you do this. You have to open Windows Explorer and look for a "Drive" that's labeled as "Removable Storage."

    Might be easiest to find if you open Windows Explorer before you plug in the Droid, and take inventory of all of the Drive letters (C:\, D:\, etc., etc.) When you plug in & mount the Droid, a new drive letter will show up there- and that'll be your SD card.
    Disclaimer: I work for Verizon, but I do not work wireless. I do, however, design the data circuits that connect all those lovely little cell towers.

    You're right, there is no way to customize text notifications without an app. The perfect one I was able to find was SMS Popup. Allows complete customization!
