iOS 4.2

Is anyone here using the beta for iOS 4.2? I've read that iOS 4.2 it gives you the ability to change the SMS tone for every contact...Any true in that for anyone using the beta?

Re: iOS 4.2

While I've read similar statements around the web, my question to further yours would be will there be additional sms alert tones added in the 4.2 update because I'm sure we all have more than 6 contacts.

Note that no developer can confirm this as they have signed an NDA waiver. They are not permitted to confirm any alterations that Apple has not announced.

That would sure be nice but I would be happy to at least  be able to have a custom default tone so at least we would know who's iPhone was going off.

As 4.2 is in beta, it won't be known how the final functionality of SMS tone customization will work.  In the current beta, you can select SMS tones per contact, however, they must be one of the existing system SMS tone options.  As with the current version of the OS, you are unable to add your own SMS tones to select from.  With luck that'll change, but I'm kinda thinking it won't...  It could even be that while this is an option in the beta, it'll be removed from the release version -- ya never know...

Re: iOS 4.2

Re: iOS 4.2

The chances of apple letting us make our own text tones are slim to none. As long as apple doesnt give all users what they want that's where jailbreaking comes in.

It's just a SMS message tone, seems so petty to be the reason not to keep a device.  No matter what you get, there'll always be something you wish it did, or did differently.  You'll be selling a lot of mobile devices from a many manufacturers without ever finding one that does everything you think it should.  Have fun Smiley Wink
