Please advise whether and how to use 'groups' for customizing ringtones and pictures of multiple contacts. I've created groups and added contacts in, but I cannot assign a custom ringtone and picture of these selections of contacts.
May be 'groups' are not intended for this purpose?
[BB 8100, OS v.4.5]
I don't believe they were intended for that purpose, although I wish they were. Remember the BB was developed of businesses and emailing. So basically grouping was for composing an email and then select a group to send to.
You may want to suggest this to RIM. They do frequent PinStack maybe start a thread in here: Suggestions for RIM
OK 'groups' are for mails, but every basic phone does the job but BB has no such option?
I don't think so, you can set ringtones and pictures for a member of the group, but not the group itself.

Obviously that's my issue. Shame BBs are not capable of this (IMHO) simple feature .

What you can do is make an exception group. If you want, you can put the same group members that you had on that exception so it would ring different than the other ones.. Like my friend above mentioned before, group are intended for email purpose mostly, but exception are ment for ringtones. Hope it helps. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
I was wondering about this same topic!! I've assigned groups but have not been able to assign a ringtone to each group....thanks for clearing this up!!

No prob. Just remember that you can create custom exception going into the profiles and in the advance option. That will work for creating custom ringtones for specific people. ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
Exactly that's my problem - in profile's advanced options I cannot assign group as an exception. I just cannot pick a group instead of single contact. When picking a group in 'Add name' nothing appears in 'from' field and respectively the exception does not work.

I'd be grateful if anyone may confirm that his/her BB also cannot assign successfully a group as an exception in active profile ringtone ...
