    Newbie here - just found this forum, and have a million and one questions about my Xperia X10 that I am getting increasingly frustrated with. Hope you can help. :)

    1st off - And I apologise if this is answered properly elsewhere, but I can't find a satisfactory answer! How the hell can I choose what SMS tone is used for each individual contact; and how can I set it to silent for some contacts?? Please - is there a definitive guide anywhere??

    One would expect to go into Phonebook, select the contact, press Edit, and have an option for SMS tone - but no!!

    Ideally, I would like to set the SMS tone to silent for most contacts - so I got "Tone Picker". But even using Tone Picker, Set Notifications, Complete action using Tone picker, select Silent - DOES NOT WORK!!! I still get the notification tone on all texts! And Tone picker doesn't allow me to set the SMS tone per contact anyway!!

    Any help would be most appreciated! :):) I'm determined to set this phone up as I would like it!

    You could try ringdroid that has an option to set one for an individual contact.
    To get silent for all of the other contacts you could use a chunk of silence in a track for your main notification (ringdroid lets you cut out sections of tracks) so it'll actually play the notification but there's no sound to play. Then use whatever else for your specific contact.

    Thanks for ringdroid info.

    I've also just got Handcent SMS a min ago and this seems to have what I want. :)

    No worries handcent is the best I use it too, have a look for the HTC keyboard if you want a new one it's pretty sweet but it's not on market
    Here's how to install it
    Installing the HTC keyboard on the Xperia X10 | Xperia X10 Blog
    There's another one called swipe and it works differently to normal keyboards some like it but I wasn't too keen
