It would be great to hear who is calling by assigning a special ringtone to a contact.

I think that a possibility to set an ambience (or ambience specific tones) to a certain contact or contacts could do that too.

I was very suprised that Sailfish didn't support this already... Contact-specific ambiences would be even cooler though, changing colors etc. and then if someone usually shouts into their phone, you could set their volume lower than usual :)

This function is ESSENTIAL for me too...

Yep, this should be easy to implement and is a real increase in comfort.

Or define contact groups and assign ringtone for a contact group.

Contact groups would also be very nice. My E71 had this feature and it was quite useful: I instantly knew when it was someone from my family or from my job or something.

great idea too

I'd also opt in for the contact groups solution!

Additional advantage: If the UI would allow to only show contacts of a certain group, it would be much easier to find contacts within large lists.

Another feature I used a lot on my Palm devices, separating private from business contacts and so on.

Regarding the custom ring tones for contacts request, it would be nice to have both: custom ringtones at contacts and contact groups, that may have custom ringtones. :)

So does the N9

n900 doesn't have it by default, but there is an extension for the adress book, named "custom ringtones for your contacts". maybe it can be done likewise in sailfishos?

manes ( 2014-02-01 18:50:03 +0300 )edit

Yes, you're right. I have used it so often that I forgot it was not a stock application ...

any ETA for this request?

For me is state of the art! Because all other smartphones can do this. A Ringtone and SMS-Tone for each contact... so i'm a bit suprised that jolla can't do this from the very beginning... Some parts looks from the future, some from the past... Hope they will change this in further realeases of the OS!

I would also like to be able to set per contact SMS ringtones, as a first responder certain SMS messages require my immediate attention and being able to differentiate between them and other messages would be cool.

(I'm pretty sure a part of the technical infrastructure is there the contacts.db contains a ring tone table....)

I'm suggesting Jolla to add a roadmap tag with this answer, based on the high vote/view rate on this question (wanted feature)
