    Anyone have suggestions about how you would go about setting up something like custom "profiles" on the Droid to quickly adjust sounds?

    For example, during normal operating conditions, I'd like to have my ringer set to loud and notifications also loud, but at night, I'd like to silence all notifications and have my ringer set to low. Sort of a "wake" mode and a "sleep" mode. Make sense?

    I was able to achieve this on my Blackberry by creating custom profiles.

    Market is your friend folks. I went into market and did a search for Profiles. I was given a list of many, but the first was named Quick profiles which creates custom ones. Have not tried it, but it is free and have good reviews. I am sure there are many others.

    Just downloaded and tested it. You can literally change every setting imaginable. Ringer mode, volume, Media volume, Notification volume, Alarm volume, wifi, bluetooth, brightness and so on... worked great.

    Check out Locale: Locale v0.69 beta Application for Android | Tools

    It allows you to create profiles based on certain conditions (time, location, calendar events, etc...) and then it will activate them when the conditions are met. For example I have a condition for when I get home that turns my ringer on loud and turns the Wi-Fi on.

    I use it ALL the time and it amazes me every time.

    I downloaded Quick Profile. It works great. I put it on my home screen and I can quickly change from Loud, Low and Vibrate. (You create as many profiles as you want, name them and customize them)

    I posted a topic on this before I found this thread. Locale does exactly what I want, which was just automatically changing volume profiles whether it's charging or not. Thanks!

    I would like to know how to do that too. I'd like to know if the notification is for a text or an email.

    Open your text messaging, and change the sound. Same for e-mail. I have separate sounds for both, as well as a different one for Twitter notifications. Also, the application Missed Call (free) lets you customize more of these settings, and led colors. I have purple led's for text, blue for twitter, red for missed calls, etc...(Can not set led's for e-mail, but you can change sounds like I mentioned above...)

    I used PhoneAlarm for years on my Q. I find the Sound Manager app to work quite well. Didn't try Timeriffic. With Sound Manager, I have all sounds stop everyday at 11:00 pm. OnM-F, all sounds start at 9:00am. Weekends, they start at 11:00am. Phone will always vibrate for calls...

    If you use Handsent SMS you can create separate sounds for each contact. When in an SMS conversation press the upper right button (with the pict of a person & a gear) and modify the Notifications setting. Very cool & free app.

    I'm not trying to be rude... But "handcent sms" is how it's spelled, and it's great.

    Coming from BB and needed my profiles!

    Just wanted to comment on the profile issue coming from a Blackberry.

    I tried two profile apps from the market Quick Profiles and an app called Profiles.

    Liked both but keeping Profiles. Quick Profiles was good. Allowed you to create any type of profile and store it. Tap the icon and switch to the profile.

    Profiles has about the same, but I like it because of the profile loading in the notification window. I can do a swipe and click the profile name and pick a new one. No app icon taking up space on my home screens.

    Going to try Locale after reading the board.

    Just my take on the much needed profile switch coming from a Blackberry

    Using an app called "Profiles" not Quick Profiles. This app has customizable icons for the status bar so you know what is set. Has easy icon access from home screens. Can change most notifications.

    Seems to work very well.
