Different ring tone for contacts and non-contacts?

    I would like to set TWO different ring tones. One for anyone in my contacts list, and the second one for everyone else. I know how to set the ring tone for individual contacts, but I can't find a way to set one for all contacts and another for those who aren't in contacts.

    Is there any way to do this?

    I have a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+

  2. In order to defeat those constant robocalls , I downloaded a file of just silence and made IT my default ringtone. I guess they are still calling, but at least I don't hear it. Then for anyone whose call I actually wanted to hear & pick up, I designated a specific ringtone for them. Something similar might work for you.

    Assign each contact with the wanted/unwanted tones, slow and pita but will get you the same results.

    Thanks, but it is a PITA to do them one at a time, which is why I was asking.

    Thanks, but again, this would involve assigning a ring tone to each person on my contact list. I want to be able to hear anybody who's on my contact list.

    It sounds like there is no way to do what I want, which seems pretty basic.

    You might be able to long press a contact and then select ALL. Then make them all favorites and then assign a ringtone for favorites.

    Another option - some Phone apps let you group contacts, like Friends, Coworkers, etc.

    You can select all your contacts and add them to the same group, then assign a ringtone to that group.

    My G7 has that option.

    Thanks. I figured out how to select all (and somehow they all get put in favorites) but could not assign a ring tone to Favorites.

    Thanks. I did that but could not find a way to assign a ring tone to favorites.

    Thanks. Although I figured out how to create a group, I couldn't Select All when adding a member. When I tried Select All first, it didn't give me an option to add to a group, only to discard. But at least I can assign a ring tone for a group, so I'll just create several groups and assign ring tones. Probably better to do it that way anyway.

    Trying to find a "mark all" add to a group option I fell short.... sorry. Adding each contact individually and setting a given ringtone per group seems to be the way of the stock Samsung dialer. It should be easier than that.
