    Default How do you disable ringtone for a contact?

    I can't seem to select "Silence" as a ringtone for a specific contact, is this normal operation on Android or is it just the way G2 is customized that if you edit a contact with custom ringtone you must choose another one?
    Unless I make my own silence.mp3 and set it as ringtone?

    Default Re: How do you disable ringtone for a contact?

    I take it that None is also not an option (usually have to scroll up almost to the top to see it). I don't know, as the notifications per contact option is not available on my model of G2.

    A Silence.mp3 is an option if there is no None, yes.

    Bummer. Here's a link to download silent tones right to your device (10-sec and 1-sec versions, wav and mp3), credit to jetcityorange:

    Question Re: How do you disable ringtone for a contact?

    My question will give y'all a good laugh, but .... how exactly do you apply that silent ringtone, please?

    I click the link, but then what? My LG G2 is my 1st smartphone and (whispers) I am a senior citizen. How do I save the file and then where; or how do I get it onto my LG G2.

    I presumed I was still fairly tech-savvy but apparently not so. Thanks for your help.

    I don't have a G2, but if all android are similar then there should be a folder called Ringtones. That is where to put it. I use an app called Zedge, just search for silent ringtone, choose the one you want, download it, then hit the button called Set. Then choose contact. Works for me and easier than putting ringtones manually in its proper folder

    THANK YOU for the Zedge reference !! I don't have a "set" option on my LG G2 after I downloaded a ringtone. Just shows up in my "downloads" folder.

    Any idea of how I can get it assigned (per se) as a ring tone, please? THANKS.

    First move the silence.mp3 file from Download folder to the Ringtones one using a file explorer (LG G2 has its own) then go to the contact and edit it.. You'll find the option there..

    Question Re: How do you disable ringtone for a contact?

    Eeek: can anyone kindly give me tips on how to FIND that file explorer on the LG G2 so I can move the downloaded ringtone, please?

    Apologies but I'm not exactly tech savvy. Thanks in advance.

    But I already told you that: open the file explorer and search for the file you downloaded.. It's in the Download dir; long tap on it and select to move the file in the Ringtones dir.
    Then edit the contact you want..
