Curve 8530 custom ring tone for BBM

I'm a new user and having gone through all the information I have, I can only find a way to set a ring tone for emails and calls.  Is there anyway to custom set a tone for a particular contact for when they BBM me???

Go to Profiles (or "Sounds" in some versions of the OS) and go to "Edit Profiles"

 

Select the Profile in use and hit the menu key and select "edit."   Click on "Instant Messages" and change the "BlackBerry Messenger New Message"

will this allow for me to set a separate tone for one contact from the rest?  That's what I want

No, unfortunately, you can't set it for a specific contact.  You can have any BBM message have a different ringtone from other application notifications but all BBM contacts will have the same notification.

i was just checking for a similar thing to do on Torch 9810 and found out that if you create a group and add contacts to it and change the ringtone for the bb groups it might help.
