I know this was brought up quite some time ago, and I wanted to see if there was an update (in the form of a hardware update, patch, etc.). I, like many others, want full control over silencing ringtones, notifications (SMS or otherwise). I do realize that most smartphones have gone away from allowing a full 30 second tone being assigned as a text message, etc., but it stifles one's phone from being unique in my opinion--I think I could silence such things on a Blackberry Curve and a Treo 800w. I know that you can silence ringers on the Pre, but I don't fully understand why that process cannot be applied to notifications and alerts. If anyone can point me in the right direction, it would be surely appreciated (if I've overlooked something). Alternatively, I would like to submit that request for a patch (also will need some guidance). Thank you.
