    hello all,

    EDIT: i want to be able to assign the damn voice mail alert too. what good does silencing incoming calls but having the voicemail alert blast away??

    what i want to be able to do is have 'presets'. like preset 1 = such and such ringer for several different contacts, including unknown numbers, etc to have a certain ringer, some SILENT ringer, etc. then have a preset 2 = ringer OFF for all incoming calls, texts, etc except for a couple of the contacts in my addy book for emergency situations like when i am sleeping and don't want to get bothered by wrong numbers, biz calls that can wait, etc.

    make sense? any recommendations on progs that will do this?


    i downloaded 'ringcare' and don't think it's what i am after.

    thanks!

    There probably is a better idea thatn this,,, but something that might work is assigning the contacts that you want to ring through to a certian category in your address book, then when you don't want to be disturbed, change the ringtone on your "all others" category to silent.
    A little extra work involved, but it might do what you want.

    I can't remember what software it was, but I think there IS something out there in 3rd party apps that I have tried in the past that allowed you to assign certian contacts to "VIP" status, and block the rest.
    I'll dig around, and see if I can remember which one it was.

    Edit... Maybe something like http://software.palminfocenter.com/product.asp?id=10852

    grrrrrr. i thought it was going to work perfectly. easily allows you to set up who you want to allow/block, etc. tried it, worked perfectly until i got a voice mail and DINGDING the alert came through. no setting for that???????

    You could give a program called "Profiles" a try. It's free. Just search for it hereon or try that other site (hint: mtdn)
