    I just replaced my unlocked BB Bold on Tmobile for the Hero on Sprint and my favorite app was one that let me set unique sounds for texts from specific contacts. I have been unable to find anything like this in the Android Market or even anyone else referring to it here or on the web.
    Is this not an option for me?
    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure the Handcent SMS app has the ability to set custom notifications for each contact. I don't think its part of the Android OS yet.

    dannzeman is correct! I use handcent sms and you can personalize the ringtone for contacts as well as other things.

    Interesting... I have the Handcent SMS since I was told that the built-in messaging is a battery/memory hog. I don't see any options for individual contact sounds, is that done from the options in the individual 'chat' window?

    Yes, use the options in the individual chat windows for each contact.

    To change setting for individual people, go into handsent and either click on a ongoing chat or start a new one then click on the icon in the top right corner it has a upper body of a person and a little thing in front of him. Then click Notification setting. From here you can set many thing for that person.You can also set it for more then one person by starting a thread to more then one person and then going in to change things. I did that for all my bosses and my family.
