  • Imaredhead946

    Before a system update, I opened the contact and edited the ringtone for a single contact without any problems and now I want to change that custom ringtone for the same contact but a system update has since been applied. After applying a system update, I was no longer able to change the ringtone for that single contact because in the “edit contact” the “ringtone” option disappeared.

  • Vipin Appukuttan

    When I’m in office, I lower to sound to Silent and Vibrate. And once out of office, I turn it back up to high volume. Still it doesnt ring, only vibrates for all the calls. I tried switching it off and back on multiple times. Didn’t help. I tried setting in-built Ringtones as well. Same Results. Any other suggestions, apart from “Factory Reset” or “Handing it over to Service Center?”

    When my phone upgraded from Lollipop to Marshmallow, it deleted the “Ringtone” folder.
    So, the above instructions are great but it will not work if the folder is not there. You have to create it.
