Milestone (CDMA): Motorola patented "text tone" feature. Where is it?

2010-09-24, 18:01 PM

My absolute favorite feature on my Motorola Razr, which I recently traded in for the new Milestone was the patented Motorola feature that allowed the set ringtone for each contact was also that contact's "text notification".   I LOVED knowing which child, friend or co-worker was texting me from across the room!!  I thought for sure this feature would be on the Milestone, but if it is I can't find it!!

Is this feature somewhere in the Milestone?  If not, WHY NOT??? Will that feature be included in an update soon?

Thanks for the help!

To set different ringtones for different contacts please do the following:

1.Open contacts

2.Go to the contact you want to change
3.On the screen you select either to dial or message press the menu soft key
4.Select options
5.Select ringtone you want for that contact

To select different tones for contacts when they SMS you I would suggest using a different SMS app called HandcentSMS which is free in the marketplace.  It allows more customization than the stock sms app.

Thank you so much. I will look up that app. I really appreciate your time

and trouble.

I hope there is one day and update since this is patented Motorola

Technology. If my RAZR could have one ringtone for text and calls from each

contact then surely a Milestone can. I hope they correct this soon.
