With BlackBerry OS 10.1 on the BlackBerry Q10 you have the option to set custom ringtones and notifications for specific contacts. While BlackBerry 10 let you choose a ringtone and message tone, OS 10.1 also adds BBM to the mix. 

This feature is useful if you want to assign a different tone to your friend, spouse, boss or whoever fits the bill so you always know who's calling.

Also available now are custom vibration sequences so you can set the vibration anywhere from one to five times for a specific alert.

To set a custom tone for a contact, open the Contacts app then tap to choose a contact.

Scroll down and tap Ring Tone and Notifications

On the next screen you'll see options for Phone Ring Tone, Message Ring Tone and BBM Notification Tone. For each of these you can choose a tone, vibrate sequence and set the LED to on of off.

Once you're done, tap back to save and you're done! Now the selected contacts has custom notifications tones set. Bravo!

First (lol)

That aside, very useful to know. I've had a number of clients come to me asking the same question...and even more perplexed that they only had a few different ring tones to select out of the box.

I'm surprised this wasn't in the initial release. But I guess you gotta ship sometime, and better to ship mostly complete than hold up for things like this. The wait wasn't so long (especially for people like me that have been waiting on the Q10).

I have been noticing the AT&T logo on the front of the Q10. Is it removable?

Reply jordandrews90 1 day ago

If you watch the Q10 teardown video, it looks like that bottom piece is easily removable, so you can probably buy blank ones online and switch em out.

Reply shadeofdawn 1 day ago

I saw someone suggest that rubbing alcohol and a q-tip will get rid of it for you. Much simpler than disassembling your phone.

Reply R Field 1 day ago

That's great but I need custom led's without an active frame. Hopefully 10.2 or whatever the following update is.

CB10- BlackBerry Z10

Reply R Field 1 day ago

Yeah Kevin how come all the q10s I see are from at&t are they launching soon for the US?

CB10- BlackBerry Z10

Reply shadeofdawn 1 day ago

The review units were on AT&T for some reason. That's why all of the images have their logo.

Reply Tavro 1 day ago

Can you select the duration of the vibrate function (short-medium-long) or just the number of vibrations? I miss that feature!

Are there holster profiles in 10.1?

Good question, i am also wondering about this. Its one of the things i really love on my Bold 9700.

Reply fred1266 1 day ago

would we get more ring tone

Posted via CB10

Reply ralfyguy 1 day ago

Please define ringtone for "Messages". Is it emails or text? On the Z10 Messages meant emails, not text messages, which is hideous.

Posted via CB10

Reply Adam Zeis 1 day ago

Fairly sure it's the same here - Messages = Emails. Will do some testing and report back however. 

Reply Mano Meter 1 day ago

What about different LED-Colors like "Color ID" (OS 5)?

Reply scottybonus7 1 day ago

If text message tones are not included in 10.1 its a big miss

Reply rdcanuck 1 day ago

Question : can you set custom notifications to message type instead of to a contact?
For example. I would like Any BBM message to vibrate and ring quickly (and be unique compared to email or texts)

Anyone know for sure?
Thanks

Posted via CB10

Reply Adam Zeis 1 day ago Sure, just like before you can set all your notifications individualy for SMS, BBM, email, phone, Facebook etc. Reply boody78 1 day ago

Why not sms come on my dumb phone from 6 years ago had this option. Epic fail! Don't get me wrong I love my Z10, but really....

I still miss being able to create custom profiles for notifications that you can easily switch between. I don't understand why BlackBerry didn't keep this feature for BB10. Hopefully it will come later.

Reply konvajw 1 day ago

Completely agree! 10.1 is better, but still not as good as old BB OS's were.

Reply BBPandy 1 day ago

It's good that they have this, but it's still not as powerful as custom profiles. For example, all my legacy phones had custom notifications for family.

Reply sbx9900 1 day ago

maybe this will come with 10.2?

Reply ralfyguy 1 day ago

I am no developer, but I simply cannot imagine that it would be such a hardship to implement individual contact's SMS ringtones. I simply don't understand why it has been missing in the OS so far.
I would almost say that MOST people care more about individual SMS notifications than welcome the emails.
This is standard even on a bunch of so called dumb phones. I mean I got DLNA and other fancy stuff on my Z10, but not that?

Very good news.
By the way, does anybody know why the picture looks distorted? I have a Z10. Thanks.

You can already set custom ring tones and notifications in BB10. It's not new to 10.1 or the Q10, I've been doing it on my Z10.
