    Is there a way to set a specific ringtone for a contact? I know the other Motorolas I have had allowed a custom ringtone for contacts. Instructions for the Droid would have been nice.

    Call me stupid, but I can't set personal ring-tones for a specific contact. How do I do this on my DROID phone? Thanks...

    It was stated in the posts above you. You click on the contact, then hit the menu button and settings, and then click on the ringtone and set it there.

    Email can be done by going into the email app, when you click on an account you can do the menu settings again, each email account can have it's own noise. i haven't had a voice mail or text yet. I know there is a way to set the text if i remember correctly, but not for the voicemail. Hopefully someone else here can answer that question.

    I didn't even realize this was a feature. Thanks for the tip! I had turned notifications off so I wasn't being notified of emails in the middle of the night. Unfortunately that effected text messages I was getting also. Nice to know I have that much control.

    Ringtone storage location

    Is there a way to have the ringtone feature point at the sd card to find ring tones instead of having to add personalized ring tones to the directory on the phone itself...I made a directory on my card music/ringtones how do i get the os to point at that to look for ringtones rather than the current default...thanks in advace for any help you can provide.

    I easily used phonezoo when I had my envy. I can't seem to figure out how to assign downloaded content as ringtones on my new droid. Jeez - I can't even find the downloaded content. I'm tech support in my house, but this seems to be too hard.

    Yep! Go to the song you want to make into a ringtone. While listening to it, go to the Menu > Add to ringtones.

    Then go to the specific contact and add the song to your contact's ringtone.

    Easy! :)

    I want to HEAR the ringtone before I select it for an individual contact but not only can't I figure out how to make that happen, now, when I try to go back to the default ringtone setting location to try to listen so I can hear them again from there, nothing happens when I click that button. Help! I'm not even sure this is the right place to ask this question as I don't really see where to just simply post my question on this...

    Can I transfer a song from my music and set it to a contact? It seems I can only have one song I have downloaded as my default.

    Yes you can. Once you have the song saved to your SD card, go to the contact you want to set the song to. Go into "view Contact" and once you're viewing the contact, go to Menu > options > set ringtone. You can then choose the ringtone for that contact.

    I have a Droid by Motorola with version 2.1 software and I can not got to menu during the playing of a sound to move it. Nor can I get out of the default ringtone folder to use anything else.
