    Switching to the S6 (Edge, actually) from a MotoX. Never owned a Samsung before, so still getting used to TouchWiz, etc.

    Just looking for a way to set a custom ringtone per contact? I assume it will find my ringtones that I put in /sdcard/ringtones, but I can't find a way to assign them to my contacts.

    Sounds simple, right?

    Thanks for any tips!

    Open the contact/people application and open the contact you want to edit. There should be an option to assign a ringtone within the edit settings.

    Let us know if that helps.

    While you're there, you can also assign a phonetic name to make it easier for voice search.

    Interesting. Looks like my Google account sync'ed my contacts down "from the cloud", and my Touchdown HD (Exchange) account sync'ed others (there is certainly an overlap). For some of my contacts, I have two "tabs" - with virtually identical info. Seems the "Google" contact tab is editable, and I can choose a ringtone. The Touchdown tab is read-only. I will see if there's any settings in Touchdown for how they sync contacts.

    Thanks,

    Such a handy feature, and I recommend using it for anyone who uses voice commands.
