    Heres what I have found so far

    1. Ringtones from Gmail contacts do not work but local contacts do
    2. as soon as you merge a local contact with a gmail contact the ringtone stops working o_O

    this has been tested and verified by me... Test yourself

    Now we need to figure out how to make it easy

    please discuss your tests and idea's

    BTW: this is not a Liberty ROM issues as I think this is a common issue with all AOSP android devices....

    I will make this a sticky until we figure something out

    OK. So how do we make all of our contacts "Local" then? This would solve the issue right?

    How about some Backup Assistant


    Would Back-Up Assistant work to make all contacts local?

    I have tried this method by deleting my wife as a contact and entering her info back in just as a phone contact and still no dice.

    Not only has individual ringtones disappeared, but we no longer have the option of directing specified callers directly to voicemail?? (works great on those pesky 800 numbers)

    the local account can not be linked up to your gmail account at all.

    Yes you do... Open a contact and press the menu button. The next screen allows for a custom ringtone (not working) and for "send directly to voicemail". Send directly to voicemail works perfectly. :):)

    It isn't linked to my gmail account. When I typed her phone number it asked me about "phone contact-not synced" or "gmail synced" and I chose the phone only option.

    I think i know what to do if I missed this already in the thread sorry.

    But, I have had problems like this too. What you have to do is SEARCH for the contact in Gmail contacts and you will find the local contact that you put on your phone.

    Then you will have to put what "Group" you want it in. It's like making sure that they are in "My Contacts". I've had this problems many times. Hopes this works.

    I've had multiple contacts of the same person because of it. Makes it difficult to update sometimes

    I don't believe aftermarket apps work.
    If you find one that does post it here.

    I am at a complete loss as to why this is happening. I deleted all my contacts and manually entered them back in on my phone, used ringdroid to set individual ringtones for each one and it still rings with the default ringtone.

    If you add contact on your phone, it is local, but you wont find it in your Contacts in Gmail. So you have to "Search" for contact in Gmail. Then you will see it. Click on contact after searching and click on the "Groups" button at the top of the contact and make sure you have "My Contacts" is definitely selected. Then you will finally see it in Gmail Contacts and Local Phone.

    Yeah, I tried that first and the ringtones still didn't work. That is when I tried deleting all of them and manually entering them into the phone and that didn't work.

    Gmail syncs them automatically for me. I don't need to mess with groups or my contacts. If i add a contact on my phone...within a minute its in my contacts on gmail

    On this rom it does for me too, it must be cause it is AOSP contacts. But on most other roms I've used, my local contact was never in my Gmail contact unless I searched for it and made sure it was in right Group. This rom takes care of it perfectly for me.

    I don't know if it was a blur thing or what. But this rom kicks butt.
