Hi there, why cant I set a particular ringtone for a contact?

I went to music player, pressed on song, then Set as, then caller ringtone then added contact - but when that contact rings all I get is the default ringtone! What am I doing wrong?

Probably because your contacts are in Google only. Check this link

Thanks but it didnt work, in theory the ringtone is assigned, I follow all the steps and the chosen ringtone shows when I "view contact" but when the contact rings (I am using my home phone to try this) all that happens is the default tone on my SGS. I am in the UK, would there be a slight difference in build from the North American devices?

Yes I have a different build as I am in Canada - see my sig for build - but it seems strange that you can't do it.

It is a pity I cannot show the procedure has the one and mighty Omnian Wink Wink but I think you have to assign ringtones by going through contacts - menu - edit - phone - ringtone. I see this is pretty much what Omnian described in his screenshots at that link  in the above. Try that instead. By assigning through your method does not make it a specific rule. I could be wrong but just try it.

Thanks for the help guys - its sorted now, I feel a bit of an idiot, I was just trying my home landline to my SGS, didnt notice that on the SGS these calls were showing up as "Private number" - apparently my home landline is set up to not show calling ID so I am guessing that was what was wrong. I set a ringtone for my wife's cellphone as described above and it worked, of course. There is always a solution.
Thank you for helping out a new forum user. Happy
