    Setting individual ring tones for various contacts in Android based Samsung Galaxy Portal

    I want to set up individual ring tones for various contacts in my android phone, Samsung Galaxy Portal. This will help me to recognize the calls at ease. Is there any option for doing the same?

    1. Go to your Contacts list.
    2. Go to "Menu", then "Create" and select a "Phone" Contact. Create a contact with the same name as the non-phone contact you want the custom ringtone for.
    3. Add the same phone numbers to the Phone contact that are in your non-phone contact. It did not choke as I would have expected it to do having the same number twice in the system. I haven't personally tried this but I suppose that you can make
    Contacts - one for each number that you want a different ringtone on...
    5. Add a personal ringtone to the Phone Contact and then save the contact.
    6. Navigate to the non-phone contact and open it.
    7. Pan down to the "Linked Contacts" section and click on it.
    8. Select the "Add linked contacts" button.
    9. Because the Phone contact has the same same, it should appear in a short list. Just add it to the linked contacts list and the rest is automatic. If it is not there, then select "Show all contacts" and find it.

    hey friend ..

    If you want to set the ringtones which are in your memory card or the songs or tones which are there in your memory card then you can simply do this by following steps :

    - Go to the track or song you want to set as ringtone
    - Then select 'options' of that song or track....
    - There you will see the option as 'use tone'..
    - Tapping on that option will open a sub menu with options as contact , ringtone , etc
    - Just select ''contact'' option by tapping on it which will open the contacts list of your phone
    - Search for the contact you want to set the selected ringtone for and tap on that contact
    - Click that and that song or track will be set as the ringtone for selected contact...

    thanks
