  • How do I make the alert tone repeat? I used to have a repeat until I viewed the message on my old pantech and I can’t figure out how to do it again.

  • How do you set a tone for a specific contact for TEXT MESSAGE only?

    Comment by Jessica — August 15, 2011

  • It’s not possible, but you can set a tone for a specific contact for incoming call.

  • Easy! Thanks….not in manual. Difficult to navigage because it wasn’t included as an option under Audio like you would think.
