Assigning a ringtone 2 a contact, text message sound is same
When I assign a ringtone to a contact that ringtone also plays when they send me a text message. Surely there is a way around this. As how do you differentiate between text then and phone call. Any other motorolas I had used do it, but can't seem to get it working on this. Love the phone apart from that.
Re: Assigning a ringtone 2 a contact, text message sound...
You should be able to change the ring tone and text message alert when you are editing the person's contact info.
If there is not option for that, then you may have your contacts being saved to your sim card. Change it to your phone, when you do that a lot more options appear when adding/editing contacts.
Hope this helps!

to delete ringtones, open the file explorer application from progams. navigate to device\my documents\ my ringtones , select the ones you want and delete. nice and ease. set a new ringtone either in the sound and notifications section of settings, or on a file, tap and hold on the screen on a file you wish to have as a ringtone and select "set a ringtone". if you are looking for these as a message tone you need to convert the file to a .wav file and import this to the windows folder on the device then select in the sounds and notifications tab in settings.
assigning tones to contacts can only be done if your contacts are outlook contacts, not sim contacts. open and edit a contact, scroll down to ringtone, although again with these i belive the file must be a .wav file and be located in the windows directory.
Before you can assign a ringtone to a contact, you must first go to "settings" and then to "ring styles". Click on "Detail" and go down to "Ringer IDs". Make sure it says "On". After that, you should be able to assign a ringtone to a contact by editing the contact details. (Custom ringtones are at the bottom of the list instead of at the top.) Hope that helps.
I had the same problem... after much fiddling with it, found out that only contacts saved on SIM card could have ringtones assigned. Don't know why... but saving all contacts to SIM & then assigning ringtones worked for me.
If you set the profile ring tone to OFF. Then select a contacts' number and assign it a Ring Tone. When that contact calls you the Ring Tone you assigned will ring.
If you select the same Ring Tone for all your contacts in a group they will all sound the same when they call.
Or select the same ring tone for a profile, but cancel the Tone you assigned to the contact(s).
