Any apps that allow you to change rings tones of Contacts? I don't need one that creates ring tones, has ring tones, etc. Just one that will let me have phone calls use different ring tones depending on who the contact is.
For example, I've decided that when I get my DX I want "Uncle F***a" for my ring tone and another short audio clip for my text tone. Can I do this or do I have to purchase and download ring/text tones from Verizon?
I have AT&T now, so I don't really know how it works for Verizon and/or if there is a way to do this with the DX.
When I make a call there is a short, odd ring-tone that occurs just after I press Dial and before the normal ringing sound begins to indicate the call is going through.
It's about 1/2 second long, can be quite loud sometimes, and is kind of high-pitched....sorry, it's hard to describe. The tone modulates up and down quite fast - da-dum-da-dum-dum (if you can imagine).
I tried re-programming the phone, and also updating roaming, and it's still there every time I make a call. I haven't made any changes to call settings to speak of...never had this on my D1.
I'm using Timeriffic to turn my ringer and notification volume off at night. However, if I get a call from some of my contacts, I would like my phone to ring. Is there a way to set up my phone so that some contacts will be able to ring my phone, even if the ringer volume is off?
I'm using my new HTC Desire and I have encountered a rather frustrating issue. I have tried searching everywhere but can't find anything that can help me yet. I have found that whenever the phone is charging, the phone is completely mute and will not ring. Likewise, any sms's will go unnoticed as no ring tones/ alerts sound. The phone still operates like normal while charging and will retrieve calls, it's just the phone stays completely silent
I'm new to the forum and also a new android user ( just got the phone this afternoon). After played with it for a couple hours, I still can't figure out how to set customized ring tones. All I see in settings is the preloaded ring tones. My question is : How do I load my own ring tones and use them? Do i just create a ring tone folder and what should i do from there? Or there are other ways.
I previously used Handcent but have switched back to the stock manèging app for reason likely only important to me.My question is I can't seem to figure out a way to assign a particular ringtone(notification sound) to a particular contact. I know it has to be right under my nose but I have exhausted the ways that I know.
I have the desire for about 3 months now and i m loving it. however, what irritates me is that every time when a sms is received, the phone only vibrates once, while the ring tone still goes on. i have tried the smart vibrate app. although it can set the length of the vibrate but it will still vibrate even if i have read the sms. any one can recommend any better apps? also it seems to take a long time to power off my phone. is it due to running apps? but i have killed the apps b4 i shut down....
Is there a way to mute the ring tone of an incoming call while I am deciding what to do with the call? This morning some idiot rang me at 0150h. I was fumbling to mute the tone before it woke up the whole house. But I could not find any option. In meetings, it is a nuisance if the ringing blares away while I make my way out of the room to take the call.
What i am after is some suggestions for the best app in your opinion for these that i need ? 1 - The best Music App 2 - The best Radio App 3 - The best Alarm clock app that can wake you up with radio also 4 - The best Ring tone/email/voicemail/text, sounds alert app 5 - If you were stranded on a desert island with just your phone and 1 app which would it be?
I have been looking everywhere how to play a ring tone/alarm sound in android. I press a button and I want to play a ring tone/alarm sound. I could not find a easy, straightforward sample. Yes, I already looked at Alarm clock source code. but it is not straightforward and I cannot compile it.
For historical reasons (from when I had a LG VX-6000 before I upgraded to a smart phone), I have several email notifications that are sent to my phone by way of <my number>@vtext.com. This is the Verizon email-to-SMS gateway that has been around forever.
The default 'Messaging' app is smart enough to extract the email address from these messages and look it up in my Contacts list, so it shows up as from the proper contact.
I have been looking for an app to alert me with a different tone depending on who sent me the message. I have tried 'Missed Call' and 'Ringo'. Both will let me assign an alert tone to a contact, but when one of these SMS messages is received, both 'Missed Call' and 'Ringo' show the message as from '6245' (which is 'MAIL' transposed with a telephone keypad). As a result, it won't look up the proper alert tone because it won't extract the sender's email address.
Is there a better solution? I could have these messages sent to my Gmail instead, but the Gmail app won't play different tones depending on the sender.
We just converted from iPhones to the HTC ONE M8. So far my only question is this. How do I go about assigning a different tone to a contacts different contact methods? Like ringtone 1 for a call, notification 2 for text, ringtone 4 for email. Is there a decent third party app that would that? Is there even a way to assign different ringtones for different contacts in general?
Is there is a way or program that can let the phone ring when my girlfriend calls but keep it on silent for everyone else.
I just moved from a Blackberry and I was able to do it on those phones I see you can have different ring tones per contact. However I sleep during the day (work nights) and i put my phone on silent but on my blackberry i could have a profile set for only my girlfriend and my phone would ring no matter if i had it on silent or not.
Is this possible on a droid? Id really hate to have my phone going off all day long just so i would be able to hear my girlfriend call.
I have my default ring tone set. I then went under contacts and set certain ring tones for my wife, family etc... I had my wife call me and it rings with the default ring tone. I have tried everything and nothing seems to change. Anyone that calls that I have a preset ring tone for, it just uses the default for the phone.
I had a blackberry before the Incredible and I used to use Funtonia - 3 Million ringtones, real music MP3 ringtones, iPhone ringtones for your cell phone for my mp3 ringtones. Is there a way to download and set custom ringtones for each contact?
Is there a way to change the default USB connection "tone"? Mine sounds like a loud phone ring that I don't like. I've looked at all of the settings and I can't find anything. The default notification is *not* set to that ring, so it must be set somewhere else. Unless it just can't be changed(?).
I keep getting a tone about every 30 minutes, I think its a notification that I have email. I don't mind the first time getting a message alert, but every 30 minutes gets kinda annoying. Anyone know how to turn it off? I do have handcent but that notification is turned off.
