Default Custom ringtones

Please Login to Remove!

Hi again - another question that maybe y'all can help me with. For a number of people in my address book, I have designated a ringtone specifically for them (my brother is BOC's "don't fear the reaper" ). But when they call, I get the standard ring I've set (RHCP "Scar tissue" - don't ask). How can I make sure my personalized ringtones work when these people call? (My in-laws got "Daughter" by Creed )

Thanks!

Oh, and under "Profiles" / "Advanced" make sure the name of the contact in the exception list has a check next to it.

Thanks fatbike. If I had your number, maybe you'd get Meatloaf's "Bat out of hell?"

Yea...

Maybe that could be MY 'mother-in-law' ringtone!

ok, fatbike, I have been wanting to ask you, what is your signature quote taken from? Meaning? Since the OP's issue is solved and y'all are onto Mothers-in-law, let's go further off topic, lol

I came up with that quote all by myself... Uh, well the screaming ghost was, admittedly my inspiration ;)
