    I'm looking for a way to set unique ringtone for certain contacts. I know this can be done for incoming calls but I want to do this for SMS messages also.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I use handcent sms to do it. First start a new message select a contact then type a letter into the message box. Back out and the message will be saved as a draft. Go back into the message then in the upper right hand corner hit the settings button choose notification settings and there you can set a custom sms ringtone for that contact. Repeat those steps for addition contacts. Also set your notification ringtone in android system settings to silent and set it in handcent instead in general settings. Disable notifications in other sms apps. Sorry its so cumbersome but it works just fine.

    Another way to do it is to use GO SMS (easy to edit individual contact notifications) or SMS Popup. Those are easier ways to do it. However you managed to do it, it'll be using a second app for notifications, so you'll want to disable stock SMS notifications.
