    Seems a lot of people don't know how to do this........

    Open contacts
    Goto the contact you want to change
    On the screen you select either to dial or message press the menu softkey
    Select options
    Select ringtone you want for that contact

    Works for me

    I also recommend the free app Ringdroid. So you canuse your music on the phone for ringtones.

    And you can also edit your music to make ringtones that you save to the Android ringtones that you can use with anything that Android allows notification tones with.

    I also recommend Rings Extended. It will allow you to simply set an mp3 as a ringtone. All my previous phones let me have the ability to just choose an mp3 as a ringtone, and I thought it was roundabout that I had to play an mp3 first, then set it as my ringtone. Esp. because I don't want my text ringtone to be the same as my call ringtone.

    Okay, when I go to the contact screen and hit menu, options doesn't come up, only edit, delete, link contact, unlink contact, or share name card. What am I doing wrong???

    IOW - select the contact you want to change the ringtone for. then perform the rest of the steps.

    Actually, now that I have re-read what you wrote, it sounds like you are either 1) not on a DROID, or 2) not in the contacts app (from your phone) - are you looking at contacts in messaging or GMail?

    I have the same menu options as you too! None of the above menu options appear for me and none in any forum for how you do this exist on my phone!!! Super super frustrating! I've had this phone since March and still can't figure out how to do this. There must be a way! Do you have the Droid 2 global? Maybe that's the problem? That's what I have. Maybe this only works for the regular Droid?
