    Is there any app available that lets me have more control over alerts & ringtones? I'd like the ability to assign different ringtones to different contacts, and though likely unrelated and impossible, change the alert notification for the Weather Channel widget, and have different alert sounds for different events that occur on the phone (I.E. Google Voice, GMail, USB Connected, etc...)

    I find it hard to believe an app like this wouldn't exist, but I've been unable to find one thus far...

    No app needed to have a different ringtone for different contacts.

    Go to the contact list, click on a contact, hit the menu button, select options and then set the ringtone for that contact.

    Handcent, Missed call, Not Call Log (avoids random outgoing call issue I was having) are what I use for phone/messaging tools. There's notifications for incoming text messages within Handcent.

    Thank you - that explains why I couldn't find an app for it. Now if only there was a way to customize alerts by notification type...

    You can customize ringtones for the different notifications from the settings menu of most apps (Mail, SMS etc.). Be aware that some apps only look in certain places for their "tones". By that I mean some look in "alerts", some look in "notifications" and some look in "ringtones". I found I get the most flexibility by creating those three folders under a "media" folder in my SD card and copying "sounds" I like to all three. Then I can pick whatever I like from whatever folder the app looks in. If you want to customize LED colors etc try Missed Call app.
