    I'm trying to set personalized ringtones on different people in my list so that when they call, I know who's calling before I look at the phone. I had that feature on my old Ericsson flip phone. It makes sense to me that a more advanced phone should be able to do it too. Can it be done? Is there an app for that?

    Absolutely.

    It's already on your phone, the Contacts/People app. Pick the person you want, hit edit, and there should be an option to set ringtone.

    Unfortunately that option isn't on my phone. :( Is there some other way?
    I know.. noob questions. It's my first Android and I'm still learning. I wouldn't be asking here if I hadn't looked through every option on my phone that I could find.

    I have to save the contact first on the Galaxy S 4G. Then I can edit and add ringtone.

    If you are on the latest firmware. all you do is go to contacts from the app drawer, find the contact you wish to assign the ringtone to.

    In the top right hand corner of the screen there is a little pencil icon, which has the word edit underneath it, Tap that.

    Scroll down to the bottom there is a drop down list that lets you choose the song you wish to apply to that contact
