Has any one customised the profiles yet?

It would be nice to have different ring tones allocated to different profiles.

Yup, I've done this, to a small degree. "Meeting" is a normal ring at the lowest volume level, with a vibrate first setting. Ditto the notification sound. For office use basically, see my other post in this section.

What I'd really like would to be able to create new profiles. Is this possible? I know it's not via the current applications, but it may be possible to programatically do it.

How did you get the Meeting profile to have a different ringtone to other profiles?

well, as far as i can tell, when it switches profiles it does change the registry to affect the 'script' part of the ringtone, but not the actual ringtone.... breaking it down, script includes 'a' that tells it that its a wav/midi, 'vX' (Vibrate, where X is the length of the vibrate) 'p' (tells it to play th sound i think, not 100% about this, but removing the p from keypress does indeed stop it from playing), 'wX' (wait X seconds), and 'r' (for repeat)

Oops sorry, my mistake, it's the same ring tone, but set to the lowest volume. Wasn't thinking straight, sorry if I gave anyone false hope!

Hello all,

I don't have a profiles which ring different tones but....

for all the people in your address book, you can allocate different tones...so technically you can allocate one tone for mates and another for friends etc

best advice I can give I'm afraid

Anyone feel like copying all the binaries to the PC and HEX searching for the default script string? If you could locate it and hack it, whenever it applied a ringtone, you could make it looping by default. :lol:

ok been messing around again with these and have got a result....
copy the *.prof.xml files from IPSMApplication DataProfiles onto your pc, (pref in a seperate dir)
open trusty dosprompt,
attrib -s -h *.* the directory,
edit to your hearts desire....(eg fix that loopling ringtone, and set a differnt ringtone to a profile)
attrib +s +h *.* the dir (VERY IMPORTANT OR PROFILES DONT WORK)
copy back to IPSMApplication DataProfiles

ive done it and it works.
DANGER DO NOT TRY THIS UNLESS YOU KINDA KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING ELSE YOU MIGHT KILL YOUR PROFILES, oh and make a backup for goodness sake BEFORE you mess!!!!

yeh, but first, go into profiles, and edit them all so they write themselves into the IPSMApplication DataProfiles dir

oh, and another thing, you can actually do this with smartexplorer (to change the file attributes) and notbad (for editing the text), so you dont necessarily need to use a pc
