    Trouble assigning ringtone to contact

    My boyfriend has a Galaxy SII and is trying to assign a specific ringtone to my number. It looks really simple and it appeared to set it up when we did it tonight, but when i call his phone it plays the default ringtone instead. If you edit my details in the contacts, it has a different ringtone assigned to me though, it just wont play it when i call! If anyone has any idea what we are doing wrong, we would really appreciate the help! Thank you

    Make sure the contacts are saved to the phone memory or Google and not the sim

    I have exactly the same problem. My contacts are on the phone.
    I can assign a standard issue ringtone to a contact & when they call it uses that ringtone.
    If I assign a sound to a contact then, although it plays the sound when I tap on it in the sound selection menu when it is selected & shows on the contact details, it does not play when they ring, it uses the default phone ringtone instead.
    The .mp3 is stored in My files under a folder called ringtones under the usbstorage folder

    I would be grateful if anyone can help me out.

    Ok...I hate to sound like a dunce, but I'm having the same problem. I have located the files I created in the Ringtones Folder, but when I get a call, I just get the normal default ring. I have set 4 different ringtones for 4 different people but no dice. I also tried to locate the folder with the factory ringtones thinking that is where I should move them too, but no dice on that either. Help??

    This is your first post on this thread, you haven't stated what your problem is exactly.

    Remember the contact must be stored on the phone, NOT on the SIM.

    Below is how to set a notification.

    Setting Ringtones and Notifications

    There are numerous ways to set tones for Calls, Notifications, Texts, Emails etc. If you want to apply a different ringtone to a contact or group make sure they are stored on the phone, or when you turn off the phone any ringtone associated with a sim contact will reset.

    Using any File Manager app go to the main directory and locate the 'Media' folder and then inside locate the 'Audio' folder.
    In the Audio folder should be 3 more folders called Ringtones, Alarms and Notifications:
    /Media/Audio/Ringtones **Calls**
    /Media/Audio/Alarms **?Wakey?**
    /Media/Audio/Notifications **SMS, emails or alerts for individual apps**
    You can put your relevant mp3 files in the relevant folders. Long presssing the mp3 file in most apps will bring up the copy/paste/rename options.

    You should now be able to see the files in Sound Settings Menu of the phone or relevant apps.

    You can also use most audio player apps to set an mp3 for Calls, Contacts, messages etc.

    As previously mentioned Zedge is a useful app for assigning ringtones and notifications
