Thanks for the info. I downloaded Ringo Lite, but I couldn't find the silent ringtone in the list. Did you see it in the list of ringtones from the pull down menu when you were assinging the tone to a contact?
My bad. Now I understand. The file that you want me to download, place it in the locationyou listed then install the app.
I was looking for the location you wanted me to place the file (/sdcard/Music/ringtones/), that directory is not listed on my SD card. Am I looking in the right place? Connect the phone to the computer and windows explorer to the sd card and I should find the directories right?
This is my first droid phone and I like it. Try to figue out the diff between Launcher Pro. The only problem I see with this phone is the batter. No too good. It was either the Dinc or Fascinate. Which one do you like?
Thanks for letting me know. I think I'll chop about 9 seconds of that off. On the Epic I renamed those files and ended up bricking it. Not making that mistake twice.
Hope it was a soft brick!
I couldn't get custom_silent.ogg to work in the music folder of my rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 E4GT; when I tried to go to that folder to pick the .ogg file, the contacts app crashed. In spite of the fact my phone is rooted, I've often found I'm not allowed to modify or replace files in the /system area, so I was pleasantly surprised to find I was able to paste custom_silent.ogg into /system/media/audio/ringtones/.
When editing a contact, I thought at first something was wrong because I didn't see "custom_silent.ogg" in the list of ringtones--it comes up as simply "Silent" in the list. Once I figured that out, it worked perfectly.
