    ok, so i just updated my HTC Hero to the new 2.1. So far i am enjoying the updated UI however, i have noticed some changes, for instance, before i could easily assign ringtones to anyone now when i try to assign tones that are saved on my sd card to specific contacts it will not allow me to do so. The phone now only lets me set a default tone which can be any tone (sd card or factory) but all contacts have this tone & i cannot assign specific tones for certain contacts. PLEASE HELP!!!

    I recently upgraded and have the same problem you do.

    I can a select the ringtones off my sdcard ... it plays when I select it ... it displays as the contact's ringtone ... but when that person calls, only the default ringtone plays.

    And, yes, my ringtones are in the correct folder. I use the same sdcard from when I was using version 1.5 and the ringtones worked then.

    Did you ever get your ringtones to work? If so, what was the problem?
