If it matters any I have an HTC Desire Z with the original Sense install.

We have this monitoring service at work that keeps an eye on the various servers and starts frantically SMS'ing me whenever things aren't working right.

I'd like to set a separate notification tone for SMS's from that one contact. How do you do that? Under the contact I have an option for the Ringtone, but there doesn't seem to be an option for the SMS notification tone.

You cannot change the notification tone for a single user, only the Ringtone. You may be able to find a 3rd party SMS that will allow you to set up different notification sounds for specific users, but I am not aware of any.

I think Handcent will allow you to do it. –  Chance Aug 1 '11 at 19:17

Another option is Ringo, which I've been using for over a year and it works great for just this purpose (I have a server that yells at me too). The free version has everything I need, though there is a paid version with more options as well.

Ryan is correct and I would recommend SMS Popup. Been using it since my G1 days. Lots of options like quick replies, custom vibration, and alert repetition to complement the custom message tones. You will need to turn off the native message notifications though, but it's definitely worth it.

Plus, as I understand, the author tries to maintain it using only user donations. Thus it doesn't contain any ads as Handcent does, for example. –  Igor Zinov'yev Oct 19 '11 at 19:32

Use Go SMS Pro to change individual customization for notification.
