function missing!

Just wondering if the z10 will ever have an update to enable us to customize tones for texts for contacts? It is very disappointing that this is not an option with the new z10.

Re: function missing!

Hi and Welcome to the Community!

It would be a violation of the Ts and Cs of this site for anyone to provide you with anything authoritative for your question. But, I'd have to guess that, since this existed before and has been discussed at length here on this site, that it is likely to return at some point in the future. But, no one who knows for sure can reveal either that fact nor anything about "when"...so my information is purely my own supposition.

Good luck!

Re: function missing!

From what I can remember you can download free ring tones and etc. You would have to web search for them.


I use the phone with its default ring tones and setup.


I read a posting that mentioned Blackberry is supposed to be improving this area of the phone. This was not official.

Re: function missing!

Thanks. I downloaded many fun tones to customize my alerts and was so discouraged when it couldn't be done with texts. Sure hope they fix this issue sooner than later.
