    Hi,
    Is there a way to select what numbers trigger the ringers but would be able to set a profile so that if my wife or childminder rings (in an emergency) the phone would ring for them but any other callers it would stay silent. I could do this on my blackberry but cant find this on the desire??or even an app would do if anyone knows any thanks

    Let me google that for you:

    Night Ringer Android App

    Can't comment on it's use, but it appears to do what you want.

    Edit: Can't find it on the market, but searching for Night Ringer, brought up at least two free apps, and a few paid ones that offer the same. Ring Manager & Ringer Manager being two of the free ones.

    +1, Tasker should definitely be part of the standard Android build

    AutoRing is a free app that allows you to white-list certain people to ring when your phone is on silent or vibrate. It has a missed call feature so that you can set ti to only answer the second (or third) time they call in a period of time. That way in a non-emergency it goes to VM, if they call right back it answers.

    You can also set a contact to go direct to voicemail when they call, just view the contacts details to see the option.
