How to set a contact ringtone??????
Why do they make this so damn difficult?
I am trying to assign a custome ringtone to a contact.
When I setup my phone and logged into gmail account all of my gmail contacts shows up. When I tapa contact under People, it lists all the details and at the bottom it says Ringtone and allows me to select a custom ringtone. Right under it it has Block caller and edit.
However, if I add a new contact using my phone, it gives the option of Phone or my gmail account. If I select phone, this information does not show. If I choose my google account, it pops up about certain fields blah blah.. And again no ringtone selection.
I have exported/imported and select gmail contacts and still no dice.
All that shows when I add a contact is the Edit Contact button and nothing else. Not like all my existing contacts show.
I want a new contact to sync with gmail contacts and not save to phone.
What am I doing wrong? How do I assign a ringtone? I know on some phones you have to select the ringtone and then assign it to a contact. But I can't find my ringtones at all. No file browser that I can find.

On your homescreen hit Menu>Ringtones>New Ringtones and it should take you to any ringtones or songs that you have put on the phone yourself. Once you find it, click the "bubble" to the right of it and then click the "ADD" button at the bottom. Then go to People, find the person you want to customize a ring for and right under the options section you'll see Ringtone. Click that and you should be able to find the new ringtone. That worked for me.

There's a way to do this through the Music app, also, assuming the ringtones you want to assign are music files you've added yourself. Open Music, scroll to the song and then tap menu -> more -> set as ringtone -> contact ringtone.

If so, click the contact, scroll down, under options you will see Ringtone. Click on that and it will let you choose any .mp3, .wav, etc. file on your phone.
If you're trying to create a custom ringtone, you're going to need an app for that.
I got it. I went to music/more and set ringtone for contact. These were in my ringtones folder on sd card.
It allowed me to select one or more contacts to select.
Now, all the options to for ringtone or block, are now visible.
Seems like a lot of hoops to jump through to get this done.
Thanks for all your guys help!
