Sounds for contact

I need a "sound for contact" like in my previous blackberry. I will be on call and need to respond when I get an email from a certain source.  I have added "phone ring tone" and "message notification tone" to the contact, but I get no audible alert when I receive an email from this contact.  Please help.

Re: Sounds for contact

Currently you can't have a specific tone for one contact, but you can set them per email account.

Re: Sounds for contact

So you are saying I can get an alert for "all emails from an email account". Are you suggesting I setup an seperate email account and set a email "rule" to forword the important mail to this new account and thus get an audible alert? If so how do I set the tone on this new email account?

Re: Sounds for contact

Well, you could do that.

 

You can also get BeBuzzPro from your AppWorld, and it will enable individual alert notification for a specific contact.
