    Text message / contact ringtone the same?

    How do i make the phone ring the same whether a contact makes a voice call or a text message. Currently the phone will ring to the designete ring tone for the contact, but when they send a text its different. How do i make it play the designated ring tone for both?

    It's not possible to set up separate ringtones per contact for text messages. Only works for ringtones.

    I actually enjoy this feature. Do you want it to be the same so you know who's texting you? All it takes is a glance at the screen (depending on what app you're using). I'm currently using Txtman and it's working great so far. (If you have a Sprint Q it won't work.)

    So we got nothing here? The other thread's fix wasn't good.

    i believe that was the conclusion, ain't possible...

    ETA: unless you use (buy) Photo Contact Pro 5.

    The solution that I'm using is Photo Contacts Pro 5 which in it's latest incarnation includes contact specific sms tones. It's the best $25 I've ever spent on my Q.

    I know have the ESPN sound when I recieve an NFL txt, the ITV news 'bongs' ring out when I get a news alert and seperate alerts when I get texts from friends and family. It's great. :laugh2:

    Certainly within the Photo Contacts Pro profiles there are volume settings if that what you mean.

    There's a demo on their site too which you can try first although I don't think you'll be dissapointed.
