    I have not seen this question addressed yet, so sorry if i missed it. I want to know if you can set the Hero to ring a preset tone for certain call types. For example: calls with id but not in your contacts, and calls without id, each being assigned a separate ring.

    Note: I have not purchased the phone yet, I am still debating this one and the Moment by Samsung

    Thanks

    I'm not aware that you can do this feature.

    On a side note:
    A lot of people have switched from the Moment to the Hero after the first week or two.

    The lack of a physical keyboard is the only trade off and personally I used to think I couldn't live with out a physical keyboard. I have officially changed my mind.

    If I'm reading your question correctly, yes. But it's not a very straight forward process.

    I have my hero set to do a different ring for private/unknown numbers. I have a different ringtone for contacts (work related has it's own tone, wife has her own tone...) and all other calls (i.e. not in my contacts) have a different and distinct ringtone.

    Next time you get a call from a Private or Unknown number, save it to you contact list and apply a specific ringtone to it.

    Assign a ringtone to ALL of you contacts.

    Make a default ringtone for all other calls (which will be everyone who is not on your contact list).

    Are you saying if i have 300 contacts that i should go through each contact and individually assign a specific ringtone to them so that the default ringtone will be the unknown caller ringtone?

    No, just save a Private or Unknown Caller to your contact list and assign them a ringtone (or send right to VM).

    Okay. that solves "private"/"unavailable"/"unklnown" issue, but what about random numbers that are not in your contacts, like a new solicitor?

    How would I go about setting a ring tone for numbers that are not in my contacts? For example, any calls that come from numbers that are in my contacts would ring a certain way, and numbers that are not from my contacts ring differently?
