How about having Symbian style profiles to control attributes?

  • ringtone selection from different sources/media
  • ring tonetype
  • ring tone volume
  • message tone selection
  • keyboard sound and haptic response
  • vibration
  • email tone selection
  • calls group that will alarm and call groups
  • other topics that could used as profile attributes

Naturally with possibility to create user profiles and also with timer, which would restore the default profile as active profile.

See themes not just ambiences and the answers and comments in that thread.

If the ambience will be lot more that's good news.

But at the moment it can influence to visual outlook only. Leving just "profiles" for audio control i.e. sounds on or sounds off just like Windows phone, Iphone and perhaps Android has.

But let's see what is coming next year..

This is solved by Ambience. I don't believe that at the moment you can set up as many things as you are asking, but a better question would be to add those settings to Ambience.

And i think, exactly this question (adding additional settings besides of sounds to ambience) was asked a few times before :-)

Do we consider this question answered based on Jaakos's answer?

If yes, may I ask someone with more Karma to close to question as i am still four points short ;)
