    I get a large number of texts and emails after I'm asleep, so I put my phone in silent mode. However as a manager of a retail store, I need to be able to receive calls from the security company. Does anyone know of a way to set certain contacts to ignore silent mode and ring anyway?

    The best way I know of is to use google voice.

    With the Samsung Moment you can assign silent ringers but that is not what you want.

    With the iPhone there is a 3rd party app that manages ringtones like this. Maybe someone will develop an app for Android that will work similarly.

    Until then use Google Voice.

    Or give the security company your home # and have them call that in addition to your phone.

    There's an option to set ringers for certain contacts, or send certain people straight to voicemail. Try messing with that.

    There is an application out in the Android market called Smart Silencer that will silent calls and text. You can set up a list of contacts that can overide the silent mode. Works great. Can even set it up to fire on time schedule.
