Set a Contact’s Ringtone in Droid Bionic

Ringtones can be assigned by contact on the Droid Bionic so that when your annoying friend Larry calls, you can have your phone yelp like a whiny puppy. Here’s how to set a ringtone for a contact:

  1. Choose the Contacts app from the App Menu screen.

    Touch the Launcher button on the Home screen to see the App menu.

  2. From the list, choose the contact to which you want to assign a ringtone.

  3. Touch the Menu soft button and choose Options.

  4. Choose Ringtone.

  5. If prompted, choose Android System as the source of the ringtone.

    Or, if you’re using an app such as Zedge, choose it to use that app as the source of the ringtone.

  6. Choose a ringtone from the list.

    It’s the same list that’s displayed for the phone’s ringtones.

  7. Touch OK to assign the ringtone to the contact.

    Whenever the contact calls, the Droid Bionic rings using the ringtone you’ve specified.

To remove a specific ringtone for a contact, repeat the steps but choose the ringtone named Default Ringtone. (It’s found at the top of the list of ringtones.) This choice sets the contact’s ringtone to be the same as the phone’s ringtone.
