Look for app that allows calls from some contacts to ring and all others to be mute

    Hello everyone. This is my first post here. I am getting a new Optimus V from Virgin Mobile soon. I've never used android before. My issue is I like to keep my phone on mute/silent all the time. However, my gf does not like it when I respond to her calls or texts hours later. Is there an app that allows me to filter which calls and texts make noise and which ones remain silent? I would like to add her and other contacts to this list and it would help as I won't have to keep an eye out for the phone every minute. I don't have the phone yet so I'm not sure if Android already does this. Thanks for all your help.

    There's another app called SemiSilent that you could try as well

    This one looks like it's exactly what I'm looking for. Thank you very much. By the way, how are you finding these apps? Online or via the app store?

    I use the first one, and stumbled across the second one while perusing the market for other things. If I hadn't seen your post, I wouldn't have thought twice about it.

    Hey, I was checking their website and the app does not seem to work for every device. More importantly, the app does not work for LG's Optimus V. That sucks.

    If you have a voice recorder app you can create a blank mp3 and use that as the default ringtone.
    Then you can assign any tone you want to particular contacts, everyone else will be silent.

    Tasker.
    I can break-down the profile for you, if you decide to go this route.

    This is a good idea since you like to keep it silent...would suck if you thought your sound was on and you missed something you wanted though
