    I recently made the switch from a Blackberry Storm 1 to the Droid X. Best move I ever made. This phone rocks. One question for you gurus out there:

    How can I set up the phone so it notifies me only if a single contact my girlfriend calls or text messages me? I could do this on the BB, but can't figure out how to do it on the X. Is there an app out there that will let me do this?

    Thanks in advance for all your help!

    Bill

    yes there is an app that should allow you to individualize the sound profiles for contacts. No...I have no idea what one it is. I think I've seen it in a few threads, but I never paid attention to its name(s). Try searching and see what that draws up...

    I also was a BB convert and even though I enjoyed that kind of control over my sound profiles cause you could identify without looking who was calling or texting you...it was just like overkill...spending so much time finding ringtones and sounds to identify each and every piece of every contact you have on your phone...I'm better off without it.

    IF I find it, I'll post back.

    Shoot I literally just saw an app for this but I forgot the name. I'll hit you up if I remember.

    Thanks all! Would definitely appreciate it if you post here if you see something that you think might work. In the meantime I'm off to check out Tasker.

    Tasker is actually really great. It'll do what you need and then some.
