    As far as I know, you can't set a custom notification for each contact/text without using a separate app. At first I used Ringo Lite (free), and it worked great, while I was using the stock texting app. Then I moved on to Handcent (also free) for texting, and setting custom notifications for each contact is a built in option in the program.

    blackberry has been doing this for years ... a shame sound profiles are not customizable down to messaging notification sounds and notifier light color for specific contacts

    this question has been asked repeatedly on this forum and you have more posts than i do and i assume you should know how to fix this since have presumably helped many others. Use the search function first before posting something, i always do if i have a certain problem. It only takes like 5 minutes to see if your problem has been asked and answered.

    As mentioned, use Handcent SMS instead of the stock messaging app.
