    Hi guys.

    I know I can set different ringtones for different people, but is there a way to force my phone to ring (loud) when my phone is on silent, for a particular contact?

    The only way I can think, is set up a "profile" with a default ringtone of say a single beep, but for the contact, I can set it to a "normal" ringtone.

    That make sense?

    EDIT: Got it sorted :)

    I just set my default ring tone to a single beep, and then selected a specific ring tone for the particular person. Not quiet the same as what I wanted to do, but it is a good work around ;)
