    I keep trying to set individual Text message sounds for my contact but i can't. When i try to set a notification sound its only for email and not texts. How can i change this? My phone is not rooted.

    Goto the app (messages) then Menu>Settings>Select Sound

    Not selectable for individual contacts... not to my knowledge with stock app.

    Regards and welcome to the Hero!
    Bestest Phone - IMHO

    Added:
    Oh, Chomp & Handcent are two popular apps for use with messaging that offer more customization, but I don't use them. Also, be aware that you don't want the message count to get too high on any one contact due to the problem of deleting old text's.

    :cool:

    SMSPopup works for that too and you can keep the stock messaging app if you want it.

    You mean when the phone has been sitting around and screen is off?

    I have not experienced this problem... I have received a text message delayed (20 mins, only happened one time) but never not received one. I do remember reading others having the "not receiving text msg problem, so I would suggest to do a search here and see what comes up.

    Your PRL is the most recent. Try updating your profile.

    Menu>Settings>About Phone>System Updates - Update Profile.

    Oh... random... ummm....

    If updating your profile doesn't work, I would call Sprint and have them check everything on their end. Perhaps they'll throw in a bonus discount or something.

    sprint has yet to do anything for me discount wise. i guess i get the hard asses when it comes to discounts but they usually do get the problem fixed.

    Seems to be working fine at the moment. I have it set to send me an email when someone replies to this thread and ya, they seem to come through almost instantly

    does it matter the size of the image i use for the lockscreen or does it have to be 320 x 455?

    also, does anyone have a good site to get images from?

    The lockscreen uses the standard resolution of the screen (352x288). When you go to select an image you'll be able to select the portion of the image that you want to use.

    I usually use zedge (they also have an app), but a guick google search will pull up a TON.

    Like one of the posters in this thread I think I'm having a problem with Notifications and need some help.

    Here's what happens when the phone is asleep and I'm not around to answer it: the missed SMS or incoming call triggers the Notification light which blinks for 5 minutes ... after that, the only way I'll know I've got a waiting message, voicemail, etc. is if I awaken the phone and see the onscreen prompts.

    Is my phone operating properly?

    Is there a way to set the length of time the light blinks?

    Thanks for the help!

    Yes, it is operating as designed. This is the way it works. I haven't found any way to increase the time of the blinking light. Handcent will remind you of an unviewed message again, with an audible notification, I think until it is viewed.

    i'm not using the Zedge app for most of my wallpapers and lockscreens.

    What lockscreen is everyone currently using and is it on a rooted or unrooted phone?

    also, is there a way to change the bar on the lock screen to something else? it kinda goes through the middle of my screen and it makes it ugly
