I am a complete Droid newbie - I've only owned my D2G for 4 days. I'm coming off a Blackberry Tour. One built-in feature of the Blackberry OS is the ability to assign different ring tones and alert tones to individual contacts, email accounts, etc, as well as customize the volume of each. I could have different sound profiles (Normal, Quiet, Vibrate Only, etc), and I bought a simple app that would let me switch between those profiles on a schedule.
I've managed to get customized SMS tones using Handcent, and it appears K9 will do the same for email accounts. What I really need is some kind of sound profile scheduler that allows for *exceptions*. For example, I am on call frequently and I need ALL emails and SMS coming from certain contacts (Nagios) to come through NO MATTER WHAT, and loud.
I welcome any help or assistance I can get with this. Whether there is a built-in solution that I've missed or third party app (free is always preferable but not a deal breaker). If I can provide more info that would help, let me know. Thanks.
And BTW, now that I've seen the Droid World, I will never go back.
