    Goto Messaging, Press Menu, Goto Settings, Scroll down to the bottom and you can select a ringtone.

    The Menu button holds a lot of secrets. ^_^

    Ah, it doesn't do that on it's own. There might be an app someday. I had that function on a Motoral A830, it just automatically used the same ringtone for texts from a contact as it did for calls from the same contact. It was annoying because you couldn't tell if you were getting a new text or a new call unless you waited to see if the ringtone repeated --- and with some of my ringtones they were long enough that waiting for a repeat meant missing a call.
