    To answer your last question, iOS supports 3rd party keyboards with that. You have GBoard and SwiftKey as options along with other ones too. With your other questions, you can't do 2&3, if I'm not mistaken.

    Welcome to iMore!

    1. How do i set a specific tone for emails received on a specific account?
    Settings > Notifications > Mail

    2. Is there a way to have an icon on the homepage to start a text message for a specific contact?
    Nope but you can utilize 3D Touch to perform a similar action. Force press on the Messages icon and you'll get a brief list of your most used contacts. Up to three I believe.

    3. Also if i want to call a specific person.
    Same process as above, just force press the Phone application icon and you'll see the "Favorites" widget.

    4. Anyone know when Swype will be avail for ios in the us?
    I'm not sure. I thought it was previously available. You could try SwiftKey though. I believe Swiftkey offers a Swype style functionality.

    For 2 and 3, 3D Touch your Phone or Contacts app to quickly choose between your contacts set as favourites. It’s the most effective way I found.

    I find for #2 and #3 Siri does the job quite well.

    Thanks all! Got SwiftKey installed now. Not quite as good as Swype, but it'll do.

    Another question... On my Droid, when I got in my car, it would auto pair with my phone and read incoming texts to me. How do I turn that on with IOS?

    You can enable Siri, and ask Siri to read your texts. You can reply that way as well.

    I tried that. I have Siri enabled, but I had to tell her to read texts to me. How can I get her to read me ANY text that I receive as soon as I get them? Thanks!

    I believe that you'll need a CarPlay enabled vehicle for this feature. I could be wrong though.
