Default Ringer off except for certain contacts?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok I tried searching to see if there was an answer for this but came up empty as the search string is kind of general (lots of posts for "ringer" and "contacts"

On the Sprint Curve 8330m I see the option under "advanced" when I click to Profiles (for ringer volume), and at the bottom where it says "Use Active Profile Except For:" and then it has, what I assume is, the other phones on my plan. I've goofed with these settings quite a bit to make it so ANY other call comes in and the phone stays silent, but when my wife calls, the ringer is loud. But can't get it to work right. Am I missing something with this feature? I made a custom exception with my wife's number and set it up, but still didn't work right. Any suggestions would be really appreciated! (step by step instructions would be amazing, have only had this 1 day )

Set the profile to not alert for phone calls and then set up profile exceptions for those that you do want to ring through:
