    Handcent app - setting individual text alert sounds

    Hi,
    Can anyone tell me if it is possible to set through the Handcent app individual text alerts for different people i.e. if number 1 son texts me he will have a bell sound and if number 2 son texts he will have a horn, I hope you understand.

    If you are able to do this can you explain how I would go about this, thanks

    No, you're not able to do this Handcent SMS just gives you the possibility to assign a custom notification tone. But not to every contact, but for all notifications.

    For me, Open handcent, open a text thread from e.g. son 1. The thread opens up, top left of screen has phone icon to call them, contact name then top right has a settings icon. Press settings icon & Personalization pops up, choose Notification settings. If I change Notification Sound to 'a bell' then choose Test Notification the bell sounds. If I follow the same process for son 2 & set up a horn when I press Test Notification the horn sounds. So I believe Handcent does have the facility you're looking. I've just checked it on my phone (Froyo & Handcent SMS 3.3.1) & on receiving texts from son 1 & 2 I get the bell and the horn respectively, defo works ok for me.
