What's new in this version (2.0.4):
- Unknown/Private alerts now work with Verizon/Sprint
- Changed SMS detection priority due to problems with other apps that don't play nice (see bottom of description)
- Vibrate-only setting also works for SMS/MMS
Allows you to enter a list of VIP numbers (manually or via
contacts) that are allowed to ring through even when your ringer is off. Silence your phone at bedtime, but still get calls, texts, or MMS messages from your kids. Silence it in a meeting, but still get calls, texts, or MMS messages from spouse, kids, or the boss. Click on the VIP to toggle on/off. Long press the VIP to delete.
NOTE for users of apps like GO PRO and others that interact with SMS messages: Some of these applications block other apps from acting on SMS messages. For this reason, VIP Alert would not receive the SMS, and you would not be alerted. As of version 2.0.3, if VIP Alert is installed earlier than the other apps, it should be able to coexist with these apps. You may need to uninstall the other app and reinstall it.

Your VIP callers ring thru in silent n vibrate. Even has switch to disable bc I dont want important people to ring thru in church, movies, etc.
Nicse!!! It works as said & for me is very needed as i do silent my phone @nite... definitely worth being on the McDonald's $1 menu ;-)
Excellent app for allowing only important calls when you are in meetings, driving or putting. Try it, you'll like it.
Works great Droid 2!
So far so good. It let my son ring thru while all others were silent. DroidX used.
Does not work on tmobile G2!
GREAT! Works every time! Easy to use! *** MOTO~DROID ***
Would give more stars if app had a notification bar icon so you would see when it is enabled.
Texts are audible even when unchecked. Get Semisilent, does the same thing for free.
