I had posted a thread in the main section of the apps forum looking for an app like this. One of the mods of the forum recommended WhoIsIt Beta, but I went ahead and sprung for the full version for $1.99. So far, it is well worth it.
I was rudely awakened the other night at 4AM by a wrong number call. I put the phone in silent mode and went back to sleep. Well my girlfriend tried several times to call me and when I finally answered, I heard about it LOL
So I went a searchin for an app that would let the phone ring normally when specific callers call. This was that app and more. It allows me to set "VIP" callers from my contact list, I can set specific ringtones for each contact, I can set specific ringtones for SMS and MMS, I can set specific vibration patterns for each contact as well. But the very best part is, I can put the phone in silent mode and go to sleep. If my girlfriend calls or texts, it rings normally. If my family members or my dad calls, it rings normally. Any other unwanted calls remain silent and I don't have to be awakened by some fool dialing a wrong number at 4AM.
I love this app, it was well worth the $1.99 and it's well worth 5 stars I gave it.
I had tried this app on my Fascinate and it seemed to be what I was looking for except for the fact that every time I tried to set a notification to anything other than preinstalled notification the notification went to silent. Has anyone else had this problem and if so is there something that I am missing? Thanks
