Custom Ringtones
One of the new features in OS 4.1 is the ability to add custom ring tones for a particular person in your address book. Just don’t set your wife’s custom ring tone to Kanye West’s ‘Gold Digger’.

To set a custom ring tone

1. From the Home screen on the BlackBerry wireless device, go to Address Book.

2. Highlight the contact for which you want to add a custom ring tone and click the trackwheel. Select Edit.

3. Click the trackwheel and select Add Custom Phone Tune.

4. Choose the ring tone from the list of available ring tones.

5. Click the trackwheel and select Save.

    Is Handheld OS 4.1 available? If so, where on the web? T·Mobile doesn’t have it listed (yet).

    It’s not available as an upgrade just yet but it is preinstalled on the newest devices which include Nextel 7100is and the 8700s.

    Will there be an upgrade made available to the rest of the 7100x users? If so, when?

    Its kinda weird that it took BB this long to introduce a feature like this that comes standard on so many phones. I assumed it was there and spent days searching the phone for it.

    I have set custom ringtones and several callers play something other than what I asked for. Anyone?
