Ringtones and Notification Options for Phone SMS text

I am having trouble locating the notification profile area (as instructed in the guidebook) on my BOLD in order to change the ringtone for phone and the notification options for calls and texts in and out of the holster.  I go to Options application but there is no subsection for phone or SMS texts and not even in the Advanced Options section.  As I recall, I was able to make these changes in the Profiles application under the Advanced subsection...but not on the BOLD. In addition, I somehow erased my Phone Icon application when I was hiding and rearranging my icons.  Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Go to menu, profiles,scroll down to advanced, press in normal ( or wich one is active ), and you have the chance for change the ringtones for phone, sms text, mails and more.

 

For the phone Icon, switch between themes (menu, options, themes, and switch to another one, and made the same to put the ones you are using ) and check if you have the item on screen, (you dont need the phone icon, press the green key and is exactly the same function)

Re: Ringtones and Notification Options for Phone SMS text

Yes, that did it for me!  Many thanks as I wasnt going in the advanced area before clicking on the normal profile.  Yes, I do have the phone icon when I press option for other applications and have been making calls with the green phone button.  I was just concerned that I needed that app to access the ringtone changes.

 

Is there any way to set my email so that I get my texts in that function (like my old curve) instead of having a separate application for SMS texts?  Many thanks!

Go to Messages, Options, General Options,Separate Email and SMS Inboxes, press on combinated, and move the sms icon , or hide it.
