Is there an app that can set different alert tones when new messages come in? I need a different alert tone for different email senders?I need something to alert me with different tones when different people send me email.Currently it seems it is an all or nothing thing. Point me to an app or a how to doc would be cool.
So, I was just curious, is there a way to set custom text message alerts on the the Droid, or can you only use the default ones that came with it? I figured out how to do custom ringtones, but cant figure out custom text message alerts.
In ProgressDialog's documentation it says:"A dialog showing a progress indicator and an optional text message or view. Only a text message or a view can be used at the same time."I've gotten it working beautifully with a message, but I want to use a custom view instead - a message with a cancel button. But calling setView() on the ProgressDialog seemingly has no effect - it shows the progress bar in the dialog but nothing else. I've tried it with just a TextView with the text "hello", but it doesn't show up.
I have an HTC Hero. Is there a way to set different sounds. 1 for messages, 1 for email, 1 for weather alerts Etc. I have caller ID rings but all my notifications are the same sound. My Blackberry did this. To think my HERO could not would be unthinkable.
I have stopped receiving email and message alerts. No sound, no vibrate, no icon on the status bar at the top of the phone, no blinking green light when the screen is off. It is as if the phone does not know I have email or messages.
I have my Incredible set up to synchronize with my work's exchange server. I have a ton of meetings, and I rely upon the phone's 10-minute reminder to play an alert sound before each meeting. This is very handy. What I don't like is that there is no way to set the frequency (i.e., the repeat) for the audible calendar event reminders. It seems like they will just keep going off forever every 5 or 10 minutes, even after the meeting has started, until I hunt my phone down, turn it on, slide the screen lock down, slide the notification area down, select the reminder, and select "Dismiss". And then when my next meeting comes up again, same issue. It was driving me crazy, to the point that I simply turned off the reminder notifications entirely. Is there any way I can tell this phone, "When there is a meeting in ten minutes, please play exactly 3 audible reminder alerts: 10 minutes before, 5 minutes before, and when the meeting time has started.
I just got my droid. Switching over from a storm and with the storm i could set contact alerts for text messages and separate ringtones for when they call with the droid i have found there is only one text message alert and you cannot set individual alerts for text messages.
I figured out how to add custom ringtones for alerts and calls but I cant for the life of me figure out how to set one for text, a different one for gmail, a different one exchange and so on. any ideas? Also, is there a spell check on this thing? I saw a setting under 'qwerty' but it requires predictive text to be on, which is a no go for me.
I have set up the folders necessary on my SD card so that I can access the notification alert sounds that I would like to use. The problem I am having now is that I want to set one alert sound for contact a, a different alert sound for contact b, etc... I was able to set my ringtones this way but can't figure out how to set the notification alerts.
A couple days ago i noticed my phone was silent, which is pretty unusual.I decided to check and see if i had any messages, hit the power button, and saw no little message icon waiting for me. I figured no one had texted me so i moved on. About a half hour later i checked again only this time went in to the messages app thingie and had three unread messages, all of which had come up within the last thirty minutes.Ive been checking it more often now and it does vibrate, but the little icon doesnt stay up long/at all. Any idea what im doing wrong? Its getting kinda annoying not knowing if i have a message or something.
Does anyone know how to set the Captivate for continuous message alerts. I set my text message and voice mail alert, but it only chimes one time and that's it, so if I'm not near my phone at the time, I wouldn't know someone texted me until I go to use my phone. How do I set it to keep alerting me until I answer it?
Right, I know this issue has possibly been touched on in another thread, but I cannot for the life of me find it.So, my question is this. Is it possible to use your own sounds for incoming messages and alerts?I know you can assign individual ring tones to people in your address book and change the default ring tone, however I would like to know if there is a way to do that for incoming message sounds and so on.Any help or insight?Also Crossposted due to their being 2 areas of interest
Why won't the phone vibrate for text message alerts??? I'm using handcent, I've tried audio manager. All the settings appear to be correct. The phone will vibrate for calls... Rooted, running the latest Lithium Mod ROM with Chevy's ulv 1.2 kernel. I have no other issues with the phone and the ROM/kernel configuration have worked very well!
I would like the phone to alert me approx every 5 minutes that there is an unread text. My phone alerts that I have a new text but I also want it to alert me again if I don't hear the first alert. Is there a way to do this?
This seems like an obvious thing, but I can't find any way to do it.When I put my phone in the car dock, instead of auto-launching the official "car dock" application, I want to launch an app of my own choosing. (in this case vlingo)I can find various apps that specifically replace the car dock app, but that's not what I want, I want to use vlingo (which doesn't seem to have that option by default)Just to be clear, I don't want an app that gives me an icon I can click to launch vlingo, that would defeat the purpose as I can already click the icon on my home screen to launch it if I want.So how can I set what program launches when I drop it in the car dock?
I created a custom View Round button which consists of an image and some text. I tried to bind a method to it but it doesn't work and don't know what could be the reason.Does anyone know whether there's anything missing or the reason it doesn't work?
In my app I bring up a context menu on long click in a ListActivity. One of the options "Priority" pops up an AlertDialog with 3 radio button choices. The problem is, it displays an empty dialog box without my 3 choices, or the message that I set. Here is my code...
If I replace the .setSingleChoiceItems with a positive and negative button instead, it displays the buttons and the message as expected. What am I doing wrong in setting up my list of radio buttons? Here is my calling code as well...
Where is the text message limit setting? The setting that auto-deletes old messages and/or after a certain number? I am using the stock messaging app right now (deciding between it and handcent) and it is getting quite leggy.
How do we set a text message ringtone? When we text, all we get is a goofy little chime and the phones vibrate. I'll never hear that thing in my purse.I went to settings>notifications and set a soundbite I want to use after transferring it to the media>notifications folder, and when I get e-mails, it worked. But not for texting.
Also, what forum do I use for the double time? What is rooting, and do we need to do it? We got the phones through AT&T and they work fine so far. Also, we have wifi at home- does that still count against our 3g plan when we're using that to access the market while trying to figure this out?
Am I forgetting something? I used chompSMS to set custom notifications for specific people texting and it works. I used Ringdroid to assign custom ringtones to people and all that comes through is the default when they call.
I just purchased a fascinate today and it's pretty solid, however I noticed that when I try to set a custom picture for the background, it won't let me select the whole picture and it zooms in ridiculously too much. Now, I've tried almost everything, but nothing seems to work. Can anyone help me?Oh, if you have the fascinate, download handscent for messaging. I had a blackberry before the fascinate and it's similar to the crunch sms for blackberry. It's convenient because it allows you to customize the length of the vibrations and led lights, but the fascinate doesn't seem to have led light capability. It also allows you to customize the bubbles a well as the colors per contact and all that. Definitely something to look into.
