    Okay I have searched and found nothing, so forgive me if this is obvious, I am SUPER FRUSTRATED.

    Apparently there is a way in BiteSMS to turn off text tones from INDIVIDUAL contacts. Yesterday I inadvertently added a second person to whom I text to this list.

    I remember seeing some sort of popup, but I must have dismissed it right when it came up and I didn't have time to read it.

    So the symptoms are, next to the senders name there is a bell icon with a slash through it. I still get texts, just no notification (sound or vibrate, as far as I can tell).

    I have NO IDEA how to fix this and it is probably the most annoying "feature" of BiteSMS.

    Any ideas?

    I tried bitesms but it seems to drain my battery. I have 4s. My son has the 4 and it doesn't drain his battery. I can't figure out why.

    Could be another tweak you have installed.

    I have the same bell with slash through it and I cannot find the feature on the BiteSMS settings menu to turn it on or off??? Is this just a manual thing to hold the pic on the message list???

    Bite SMS is great, but it destroyed my 4S's battery.

    Removed it.

    In the conversation list, whichever conversation has that icon, just tap and hold it until it is removed. Its a feature you can use to disable all notifications for that conversation.
