I have a Google Nexus running Android 4.1

I can set default ringtone and default notification both to silent so only people with custom ringtone can make my phone ring

I just got a Note 3 running Android 4.3

When I go to set the default ringtone there is no 'silent' option. Under default notification I can set that to 'none' which is the same as silent but there is no 'none' option for ringtone.

Can I set default ringtone to 'silent' or 'none' with Android 4.3 ?

Use an app like Ringtone Maker. Make a copy of a ringtone file and call it silent.mp3. Open it in the app and reduce the time to 0 and the volume to 0. Save it. Choose silent as your ringtone. (Or you could name it none.mp3 or whatever makes sense to you.) You'll get no sound for 0 seconds when the phone rings - the equivalent of no ringtone.

Thanks.

I solved it without any installs by downloading a silent mp3 file to my PC and then dropping it into the ringtones folder on the phone via USB

Blank MP3s

It then shows up on the standard list of ringtones
