    i just got my warp and i love it, its a great phone, my first android phone, and i get email to text from my dispatch, since i am on the fire department, and i want to set up a ringtone for that email, so when i get a call and it sends me an email my certain tone goes off and i know i have a call. but i am having trouble doing this, i have the email saved in my contacts but it wont let me set a ringtone because there's no phone number

    When the email comes in, in text form...is there a shortcode that displays that you can put in as a number? That way when you get the text from that number you'll have the "Contact" saved and can assign a separate ringtone for that?

    Edit in mid posting thought: BTW, I don't believe the stock "Contacts" allows you to set separate ringtones for contacts in the first place. I use Contacts+ myself, I am currently testing this for you to see if I can get it to work on a test basis...you should be able to do this using the contacts+ app and have no problems.

    stock contacts does indeed let you pick a custom ringtone a and picture...

    Edit: unless that was changed between boost and public version but i doubt it...

    Is it an email or a text that notifies you?

    Hmm, I haven't been stock for quite a while, but I swore that you couldn't set contact specific ringtones, but I could be wrong on that. Stock was to bland for me anywho.

    What you're doing is probably setting up a ringtone for calls not SMS. You need to change the notification ringtone. I don't believe the warp can set separate tones for SMS contacts without an app like GOSMS.
