Individual ring-tones for contacts in FP2?

Is there a way how to assign individual ring-tones for phone calls to contacts?
I could not find such an option in the standard app “Kontakte” (as was suggested in the FP1-Forum).
Any hints are much appreciated.

Hi, you should try the following: open your Contacts App, choose the contact you want to set a different ringtone, tap on the pencil (upper right corner) and then tap on the three dots in the upper right corner. There should be an option called “set ringtone”.

Hi Juli_R,
Thank you for this hint. There is such an option indeed. But then I can
choose only from predefined ring tones. How can I chose a random file which
I have on the SD-card for example?

I fear that this is not as easy as it maybe should be. The access of apps to the SD card is very limited/restricted under Android 5.1 so you should try the other way round. Put your favourite music files (as mp3 preferably) into the ringtone folder on the internal storage. Have a look into this topic to find out how to do this.

Unfortunately, on my device there no path such as
"storage/sdcard0/Ringtones". I browsed through all the folders (using Amaze
and ES Explorer) and could not detect a folder “Ringtones”, I wonder were
they are saved. However, I installed Rings Extended which works fine for
selecting a file with a random path.

I am glad you found a suitable solution. :slight_smile: I checked on that again and yeah - I had that “problem” too. No such folder anywhere. :confused:

But then, I tried the following: I created a folder with that name (“ringtones”) at that specific location (“storage/sdcard0”), copied one of my mp3 music files from the SD card into that newly created folder, opened a contact through the Contacts app to change the ringtone and voilà, my copied music file was among the choosable ringtones. :smile: So, this is working without any additional app.


Perfect! Thank’s for that leaner version. :slight_smile:
