Hi rgb192,

I thing this feature is not avalilable in any existing android devices....(But possible).  Lots of apps are available in market to switch between silent and normal mode... But i did n't see any app to make selected contact non silent in silent mode.


Technically speaking audioManager is taking care of these kind of work in android....
Through the audio manager we can get the phones current  audio state.

AudioManager am = (AudioManager)getSystemService(Context.AUDIO_SERVICE);
 
switch (am.getRingerMode()) {
    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_SILENT:
        Log.i("MyApp","Silent mode");
        break;
    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_VIBRATE:
        Log.i("MyApp","Vibrate mode");
        break;
    case AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_NORMAL:
        Log.i("MyApp","Normal mode");
        break;
}


Basically phone module will check this state while it receive any  incommingcall/msg . If the phone audio state is AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_NORMAL it will pick the particular ring tone to play.....

If the  state is AudioManager.RINGER_MODE_VIBRATE , it will just vibrate...

So we need to cutomize this module to achieve your requirment.....

In some HUAWEI mobiles i have seen option to set ring tone to each contact  separetely. I don't know whether this feature is available in base google code...or not....

So finally what i am trying to say is currently there is no such feature available...

I tend toward trying the newest hardware and software.  Thiss sometimes works out to my benefit, and sometimes not.  Because I downloaded and installed Android 5.x (http://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/18084/Upgrading-to-Android-5-0-Lollipop.htm…
You should read OS supplied guidelines before developing. I can't stress that enough. The guidelines will help you understand the reasons mobile app developers do what they do.  Apple is very particular when they review appstore submissions.
This video is in connection to the article "The case of a missing mobile phone (https://www.experts-exchange.com/articles/28474/The-Case-of-a-Missing-Mobile-Phone.html)". It will help one to understand clearly the steps to track a lost android phone.
