    Hi
    Is it possible to assign a costum sms tone to a contact? It seems that it is only possible with ringtones.

    Good question. I am wordering is if you can do a custom tone at all for SMS or are your only choices what the SG2 gives you?

    I know it's possible to put your own tones but what i'm not sure about is if it is possible to assign one particular sms tone to a contact.

    What I am saying is that I am able to assign tones for the phone ringer AND email arrival. But I can not assign any tone for any SMS, much less individual one for each SMS sender.

    What about adding the file you want as the SMS tone to the folder where all of the other SMS tone choices sit and seeing if it comes up in the list? It's a long shot from an Android n00b but that's what I would try :)

    Yes but what i want to do is to assign a special sms tone to only one contact, if i try what you suggest i think the tone will be applied to all contacts.

    I want to use this function for work purposes so if i hear the sms tone i know that this is important.

    I'm pretty sure this function is not available. Maybe if you root the phone there would be a way, but I know absolutely zero about that so can't confirm whether it would definitely work or not.
