Windows Mobile 6.1 software that can turn off/on or change SMS sounds while alter incoming calls tone

as I receive almost 100 SMS per day from the servers that I support, is there
any software for Win Mobile 6.1 that can turn off the SMS sound but still
allow the phone to ring (for incoming calls from my 24x7 colleagues) ?

This is so that I don't hear the SMS sounds at night but I would still want to
be able to be ringed.

Samsung told me my Samsung SGH i780 is designed such that when I turn
off the sound, it turns off both SMS & incoming calls' sound, so can't
handle the SMS & incoming calls' sound separately

you can change the alert to a Beep to have the lowest amount of sound possible

The lowest volume still disrupts my sleep : what's needed is
for SMS to be silenced at night while incoming calls ring tone
is still on.

Make a sms audio file with no sound  and copy it to the ringtones folder. Select that tone. (I believe its a wma file)

Rename attached file to NoSound.wav
Copy the attached file to \windows
Select the sound as your sms alert
