    Hi forum goers,
    I'm trying to set up a different SMS notification sound that would ring every X messages (say, 100). This allows one to roughtly keep track of the number of text messages when travelling, etc.

    Any thoughts?

    To clarify: one sound most of the time, another to denote milestones when reached (ie. every hundred texts rings once).

    Thanks!

    When you say "I'm trying to set up", do you mean you are searching through the phones SMS settings and through your SMS app settings, or that you are trying to create an app that does this?

    Hopefully hacking together something with existing apps- I'm not an app developer so lack the skills to code something myself.

    Take a look at "tasker" and see what it can do for you.
    Basically, what you are looking to do is this:

    on event (new message comes in or goes out)
    {
    count the number of messages in the database
    if (count mod 100 == 0) then play your special tone
    }
