    1. Have no idea. All my contacts are on Google.

    2 & 3. Download and install a file explorer app from the Play Store. I recommend ES File Explorer. When you go to change the ringtone for either your alarm or calls, you'll now see an additonal option to choose from, which will be ES file Explorer, or whatever file explorer you chose to install from the Play Store. Choose that, and find whatever song you want in the files on your device.

    Or, and I've just remembered, if you don't want to install a file explorer, you can just put the song/s you want as ringtones into the ringtone folder on your nexus when you connect it to your laptop. They then will be in media storage for when you get the option to choose ringtones etc.

    Go to settings>apps, then swipe across to All. Scroll down and tap Media Storage. Then tap Clear Defaults underneath where it says Launch By Default.

    Rings extended is nice for this too. Although for most stuff it's easier just to copy the MP3 to the ringtones/notifications folder using a file manager. I haven't tried this personally but I assume the Alarms folder works the same way (And my regular ringtones don't show up as options for alarms)
