    Default Assigning ringtone to a contact - help please

    It shouldn't be this hard to figure out. I'm new to having a smartphone, but I feel like I've mastered a lot in a short time (had the phone for 4 days now). I have assigned ringtones to contacts on all of my other basic phones, so why is this hard?

    Shouldn't there be something in Edit Contact where I can assign a ringtone? I've only been able to do it with the Zedge app, but the ringtone I want is a custom one that I made. I can assign that ringtone to ALL incoming calls, but not an individual contact.

    Thanks for any help.

    Go to Contacts. Short Tap the Contact you want to set a custom ringtone for (don't hold and edit or anything, just tap to bring up their info). Hit the hard Menu Button. Go to Options. In there you can select a Ringtone for the Contact as well as send Incoming Calls directly to Voicemail. Kinda in a silly place, but, there ya have it.

    FYI, found this real quick by Googling "droid x2 ringtone contact."

    No problem. I hope I didn't come off snooty, I just deal with a lot of people (online and offline) that don't like to do any of their own research. Sometimes I feel like I'm being used as a search engine.

    But, thanks, I'm glad my instructions were helpful. And, I'm glad you got your issue all sorted out!!

    Devinator, is there any way to change the ringtone so that you have one ringtone for phone calls and one ringtone for text msgs?

    Set your notification sound, that will cover your text messages, email, calendar events, etc. I have it set to be a noise, basically. And, my ringtone is actually music.

    Excellent advice, what I believe might be missing is an app that gives you those options... the one I use (which allows you to follow Devinator's advice) is Ringo... Ringo Lite is free and allows this functionality.

    I'm confused. What functionality would this app provide that my post didn't cover?

    Do you mean a ringtone specific to a contact? You can't do that while listening to a song. You have to do it the way I mentioned earlier in the thread.

    Sorry, not sure if that can be done, or, how you can do it. Somehow you need to get the song recognized as a ringtone. I suggest investigating what type of file the ringtones are, they probably aren't an mp3, then convert your song to that type of file. That's where I would start if I wanted to do this.

    To set a song/MP3 as a ringtone...

    On my X2, I actually have two music apps-- one that I believe was the native app (speaker icon, named "Music") and Play Music (Google app).

    If you have the same, within the Music app (same as what was on the OG Droid), you can long press a song and select the option to "set as a phone ringtone" (or notification tone).

    This should enable that song to be selectable as ringtone in the Contacts app.

    Also, going off memory, I believe you can use a file explorer app like EStrong's, and copy a song to the Notifications folder. This should be the folder that is searched for available options when selecting ringtones/notification tones.

    Note: the notifications folder is a sub-folder within \media\audio\notifications

    I am also trying to add a ringtone for some of my contacts but when I get to the options button it is not highlighted for me to be able to go any further. Do you know why? I have a T-mobile Concord

    I created mine, saved them on music. Went into settings and hit select ringtone... theres a add sign i hit and add in my tones from my music folder. So then i click edit contact and where there's default ringtone i hit that and selected one of the tones I've added to the sound/ringtone list for each contact.

    Go to Contacts. Short Tap the Contact you want to set a custom ringtone for (don't hold and edit or anything, just tap to bring up their info). Hit the hard Menu Button. Go to Options. In there you can select a Ringtone for the Contact as well as send Incoming Calls directly to Voicemail. I have a concord too.
