Can I set text notifications to be different for each contact?

Basically, what I want to be able to do is have it so different contacts have different sounds when I get a text from them.
I know that I can set different contacts to have different ringtones, but I don't see an option for notification.

If not, is there an app that does it?

I do not think you can on the basic SMS program on the droid. Use Handcent SMS, you can customize the led color for different contacts and you can customize the ringtone as well so it makes it easy to figure out who is texting you

I think you can also do this with the Missed Call application.

Appears increasingly that people who think the Droid doesn't do something as well as Apple or Blackberry just haven't found the apps that do what they are looking for. I've found most of mine quickly and easily searching Market. Pay attention to # of downloads, ratings and comments and you will have little trouble finding apps that actually work and do what they say.

I guess I don't understand what you are trying to accomplish. Missed call can assign different LED's and ringtones, by individual contact, to incoming SMS and call alerts. If as opposed to ringtone you want some different audible sound, then I think there are apps that can add sounds to your ringtone list.

LOL, admittedly the a program not originally doing what you wanted and updating later is kind of a gray area and hard to keep up with!

Handcent is easily the best text messaging app for the Droid.

I love it, when i first installed it I didnt like it much. Ended up going back to the regular default messaging. But re-installed it later on and customized everything to my liking. Now I love it and can't imagine not having it.

I tried out Handcent simply because when i first got my droid the messenger app (process?) kept crashing, and i thought it was defualt "messenger" app itself. So i thought I'd try a 3rd party one; i loved the tweakability of it...but after awhile it still kept crashing. Long story short, after a phone swap out, and then factory reset on the 2nd phone, it seems the issue lay with a couple other apps screwing with the messenger process. Either way, Handcent is one I will ALWAYS recommend to any new droid owner..it's, just, so, powerful! :D
