Android :: Email In SMS - Different Alert Tone For Each Contact

Nov 24, 2009

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> 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.

Motorola Droid X :: Custom Incoming Email Contact Alert

Sep 13, 2010

I switched to a Droid X from a BlackBerry. On the BlackBerry, not only could you set phone and SMS custom alerts and ringtones (in addition to custom ring profiles for certain contacts), you could also set email alerts.

So for example, if my husband emailed me, it would ring a custom alert for his email, not just for an email to that particular account. That meant I didn't need to look at my phone every time got an email to see who it was from. (I have a web-based business and I get literally hundreds of emails every day.)

On the BlackBerry, not only were there custom inboxes for each email account, there was a "universal" inbox. There doesn't seem to be a function exactly like that for the Android (I tried adding my Gmail accounts to the one there, but it keeps defaulting me back to each Gmail box).

Is there an app for this?

I have Ringo Pro for my custom sms and call alerts, but an email alert would be a lifesaver. There are a lot of BB converts to Android (and I'm sure more to come) who would gladly pay for an app to handle this. So far, it's the only thing I can see where the Droid X doesn't beat the BB.

Samsung I7500 :: Text Message Alert Tone

Nov 19, 2009

Is it possible to change this? It cannot be changed through notification ringtone menu; all that succeeds in doing is changing tone for other notifications like email etc. Have tried to select other notification tones, but it is the "tada" tone that always comes up when SMS is received. Can the tone for receiving SMS be changed, and if so, how?

Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 :: Message Alert Tone From Music Library

Aug 12, 2010

I have a 3 day old X10 mini and tried to use a song from music library as message alert tone. However, even after I have already opened the message, the music still keeps on playing. I have opened a lot of other apps from the phone and the music kept playing until the end. I could even play another music from the player alongside the alert tone I used.

Android :: Email Or Sms Alert

Nov 12, 2010

How could I best send a message using the Android from an external email address to the user's email address or SMS?

For example, when the phone senses acceleration, it sends a message from to the user's gmail account.

I would prefer to use the core API, if possible. I am also considering using a web server as a go between. What is the most elegant solution?

Android :: Auto On / Off - No Email Alert

Oct 13, 2010

I was a longtime BB user and despite pressure to go iPhone decided that open source was for me. I'm not a tech and not particularly patient configuring new kit so am asking for some quick pointers to apps, etc. I have looked myself but maybe I'm being a klutz or maybe just looking in the wrong place. 1. Auto off/on. How do I get my Nexus One to switch off as per a configurable schedule? 2. I don't want an alert for email (using gmail) but I do want an alert for SMSs. Is there the equivalent of a profile app to adjust sounds for this? My Nexus One is either both on or both off. Neither do I want the trackball to blink for email arrival but this isn't so important. 3. Auto spell-check in multi language (English and Spanish). Does such an app exist? 4. In email/SMS make the first letter a CAP?

Motorola Droid :: Facebook Email Notifications - Different Tone

Nov 18, 2009

I'm sure this can be done but I'm not finding it. Coming from BB World, I would like to be able to get audible notifications of Facebook wall postings, etc. I know the only way to get this is by an email which I'm fine with. But is there any way to get a "sms" type of notification for just that email? I set the email up as a contact and I see where you can add a ringtone but I really don't want a ringtone, just a small "sms" tone, if you will.

Android :: Any Application For Email Notification Alert?

Sep 2, 2010

I know it's a standing issue with the androids not receiving email notifications from the regular email app but is there an APP that will just notify me of email? Doesn't have to view it or anything just alert me as I am satisfied with the original email app. I've tried K-9 and it closes unexpectedly all the time and I find it unreliable with my phone (Samsung Galaxy S). I've also tried Maildroid which I wasn't too impressed with.

General :: Galaxy Note II - New Email Alert Even Though There Isn't Any New

May 9, 2013

Galaxy Note II.

Ever since i updated the software, two weeks ago, my phone keeps telling me that I have a new email (outlook) even though I don't! The phone vibrates as if I actually get a new email, but then it turns out that one of the already read emails suddenly is unread and "new". This happens every 10 minutes, so it's super frustrating. I am not using any specific app, just the one email-app that came with the phone.
