    So I just switched from a winmo 6.5 HTC Touch HD to the Captivate. All my contacts moved over fine but I am not offered some of the options; mainly setting ringtone. If I create a new contact, I get full options. Is it possible to run a program (which one?) that will clean up the contact list to allow full options?

    Thanks in advance.

    believe the full list of options comes up when the contacts are saved to the phone and not the sim

    Doesn't work. I've unloaded all contacts and reloaded from the SIM several times :(

    Some options are also not available for synced contacts (Gmail, Facebook, etc).

    They have to be legit native phone contacts to allow all options. Which is why your new contacts are fine.

    My phone prior to my Captivate was an AT&T(HTC) Tilt running Windows Mobile 6.1. When I bought my phone at the AT&T store, they transferred all my contacts from my phone and sim card, and outside of having repeat contacts because everything was both on my phone and sim card, everything worked fine. All of the non-sim card contacts had all the features available (ringtone and other features), not sure what the issue is.
