    Hello everyone! New to this forum. New to the Droid 2. My question is this. Is it possible to set a ringtone for a contact so when they text, call, IM, or post on facebook/myspace, that ringtone applies(ie: when my girl calls, her favorite song plays. when she text me, the same song plays. when my sister IMs me, it plays the same tone as when she calls)? I had several old phone that did this. But it seems that these "smartphones" just dont have that ability?? Am I wrong or just that ignorant? Someone told me to use handcent or sms alert, but these do what the phone already does in terms of assigning ringtones.

    Sadly I don't think you can do this. But welcome to the forums regardless. Hey who knows there may be an app out there for it but I haven't heard of one.

    Actually there is an app out there that does this. I don't recall off the top of my head what it is called though. Search the market place ask around a little bit more. Someone on here will see this and remember those do a search on the forums

    Actually, with the latest update, handcent does just what I wanted. Of coarse I have to set the tone in 2 different areas. But at it dose allow a specific tone for any for of contact from a singular contact!

    Thnx for the input and greetings!!!!

    setting individual rings

    I am also new to Droid 2. When I try the following:
    Go to contacts
    Choose contact
    Select Menu
    Select Edit
    Go ALL the way down to the bottom
    Select Additional Info
    Scroll Down to Call Handling
    Select a ringtone for that contact


    The additional info item is "greyed out" and I can't seem to change anything. If i try to select it, there is a little triangle on the right that changes from facing right to facing down, but that's all that happens.
    So I still haven't been able to give a person a unique ring tone.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    thanks,
    Bob
