Default How to make calls/sms from specific contacts ring to silent?

Please Login to Remove!

So...I just got my 9700 today, upgraded from the 8310 Curve, so far so good, I'm impressed. But one of the things I've found missing on the 9700 is the ability to add an Exception under your Advanced Profile options for your ringtone settings (ie Loud, Vibrate, etc). On the 4.5 OS for the curve, you could click Profiles, Advanced, New Exception, and then I would create/add contacts that when they sent me a text msg or called me, it would IGNORE the current ring profile and I would set it to always ring to silent only for that specific contact(s). I found this very handy for certain friends who always seem to get drunk in the wee hours of the morning and want to call you.

So far I haven't found this option on the 9700 Bold. Does anyone know of a way to do this? Or will I have to buy software for it?

Been a while since I did this but' I'll give it a try. Select them in contacts, choose EDIT, at the bottom there is a place to add custom phone and message tones.

It is a little different on the 9700 on how to do it, but here's how! Open the contact, edit, add custom ring tone,volume-silent... ( you have to do it for phone and messages )

I think it's time that the FAQ's be updated to reflect this and other recent/frequent changes in OS5 regarding the 9700 & future/current models with these changes.
