    You can't do it if your contacts are linked to your gmail account. You can only do it for contacts created in your phone. Sucks I know. If you find a way do let me know.

    Would that also include the contacts there were synced to my gmail account using exchange?

    Sorry I tried ring droid and it doesn't work. While the ringtone gets assigned to the contact, some how the phone still use the default ringtone when the contact called.

    The only way to do that is to create another contact in your phone with the exact same name as your gmail contact. Your phone will linked up these 2 into 1 contact. Then assign ringtone to the phone contact normally via Contacts

    Here is what you do to set an ringtone to an individual contact.
    1. People
    2. Find the person you are looking to assign an individual contact to and click on there name.
    3. Now before clicking on EDIT or anything else, just start scrolling towards the bottom and then under information you will see a section for Ringtone.
    4.Click on that and select your ringtone.
    5.I made the mistake of selecting the contact and then selecting EDIT, but that is too far to go, don't click on EDIT.

    This only works if your contacts are phone contacts, not if they are contacts synced with your gmail.

    That would make sense as I don't have any contacts synced from gmail. All my contacts are either from exchange or my outlook on my home pc.

    It worked for me. Make sure that
    1. The 2 contacts are linked. When you view using contacts, you should only see 1 contact. When you click on it to see the details, it should tell you there are 2 linked contacts.
    2. You should also see the ring tone assigned in the details.

    Already tried that. Contact ringtones do not want to work. I even deleted the number from my Google account, and then made a new one on the phone, and tried to set a ringtone, no dice.

    I went to the Sprint store yesterday, and they disappeared with it for like 20 minutes in the back while I stood out front like a dick.
    They came back and said, "ok, it works now."
    They were wrong.
