    Ringtones for different callers?

    Advertisement



    Ok, I know Im a newb to this forum, but Im not a forum newb.

    I used the search key as it is my friend, but this forum is overwhelming. I feel like my answer was a needle in a pinstack (pun intended).

    Anyone know if and how you can assign different rings for different callers or groups even?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    Go to your address book

    Scroll to the person you want.

    Click your Menu and then choose edit

    When it opens, click menu button again.

    Scroll to select custom ringtone.

    Ok, fantastic. Figured it was that easy. I guess I was wondering if theres a group option that I can put a lot of callers into at once then assign a ringtone for them instead of doing it individually.

    Re: Ringtones for different callers?

    Hey, N8, with the Pearl, when you use this method, what is the default "Use Profile" Setting?
    Can you edit the exception and change the Use Profile Setting? On my 8700, if I use this method, it's set to Normal, and I can't change it. Therefore it always treats the assigned ringtone as using the Normal settings. If I use the New Exception option from the Profiles Menu, I can set it to Active Profile.

    Thanks for the Information.

    Re: Ringtones for different callers?

    Ok, I just figured out how to create new categories and filter my contacts into them. Now, my main question (and what should have been the original one), is how can I assign a ringtone to that category instead of having to go through and do it for each individual contact?

    Thanks,
    Alex

    If the procedure is the same for Pearl, you need to use the New Exception option in the Profiles Menu. Select New Exception, Name the Exception (Use the Same Name as the Category). Then keep using the Add Contact until all the contacts in the Category are included in the Exception. Now Set the Use Profile and the Custom Profile Tune that you want to use and Save the exception.

    Hope this Helps
