I got a Blackberry Curve 8520 last week and am still adjusting to it.  How do I add a specific ring tone to sms from a specific contact? I don't seem to have that option in my contacts menu.

I was under the impression that ringtones could not be assigned to SMS's, only to calls. But then again, I do not have a Blackberry, so maybe it's a feature Blackberries have?



Yes this is a feature that blackberries have; you are able to assign a ringtone to SMS's that you receive on your phone.


I hope this helps,
