is it possible to assign a specific notification sound for each of my contacts when they sms me??
You can but you'd need to dl GoSMS Pro. I use it on my Admire and it's awesome IMO. When you download it you can make individual sms sounds by hitting the menu button (the one with the lines on it), go to individual and it will have an option that will let you do it. I'd also suggest downloading the GoSMS Pro Theme Maker. You can adjust font size and color and many other settings. I have a pic of my daughter as my background and my other daughter as the background on my pop-up screen. Go products are my favorite ATM. Haven't found anything that is nearly as good for personalizing your phone. I hope this helps.
