I created a custom ringtone under ringstyles>my tone, I put in the notes and named it. Made sure I selected exit and done. The phone still has the same tone as before. Help. (The tone has quite a few notes, does it need to be shorter? Do all the "empty rings" need to be filled?)

I have this steps for you for work around setting up call ringtone. Hope it helps.
--- there should be no prob to set a custom tone if you go to the tone and select options you should get an option to select from a list from the menu otherwise go to profile and select edit then when you come to ringtone select options and you will get options you should be able to select a tone from the gallery
---I discovered something about this problem. It appears that if you have the same phone number assigned to two (or more) contacts the ringtone plays the default ringtone. Once I deleted one of the contacts with the same number, it played the correct custom ringtone. What is strange is that both contacts had the same ringtone. BTW, the reason I had done this was to simplify the voice command to make a call to this contact.
Copy and paste your ring tones or music to My Documents/My Ringtones
folder. You will be able to select the music or tones at the Sounds and
Notifications setup page. To save space on your memory, you can also store it in My Storage which is the 8 or 16GB card. Create a folder called My Ringtones under My Storage. Put all your MP3 songs in My Storage/My Ringtones.
1. At the main menu, select “Settings” 2. Now select “User profiles” 3. In the next menu, select “General” 4. Now “Customize” 5. Select “Tone setup” 6. Choose which SIM (on dual SIM card phones) you want to assign a ringtone to. 7. You will now see a list of available ringtone. 8. Select it. You should see at the very bottom of this list 5 empty locations this is where you can add your own mp3's as ringtones.
Now I Know your second question once you get this figured out will be how to assign ringtones to individual contacts in your phone book so here is part 2.
1. From the Main menu choose Phone 2. Choose Quick search 3. Find the contact in the list you want to add the ringtone by scrolling down the list and tap on their name 4. Choose Edit 5. Scroll down the list of options to the Musical note called Associate sound and select the ringtone from the list. Your new ringtone will now function for that contact whenever they call!
first of all open menu of your phone then tap on setup(the one with screw driver on it) icon to open it then select ring alert style and select your alert style you will see a bottun bellow displaying "EDIT" tap on it then a menu will apear with volume level, Ringtone line 1, Ringtone line 2, Massage tone....
you can edit all of them by taping on the folder type icon flashing in front of them......!!!!!
I don't know if there is a free way of doing this, I think it will cost around $1 for each ringtone. If you open itunes then select help, then select itunes help...under the search tab type in custom ringtone and it will give you all of the information you need to create a custom ringtone from the song that you like.

Are your contacts off the SIM? You cannot assign a ringtone to a SIM contact that is different than your general ringtone. If it is a SIM contact save it to your phone then you should be able to assign a distinct ringtone.
