Thumbs up
Many thanks for that little jewel.

The simplicity of this solution is exactly I was looking for, it assigns ringtone to ringtone fileld in contact. No registry hacks, no monitorning incoming calls, it not resides in memory all the time, simply like that!

Problems I've found so far:
- ringtones must be copied to \Windows\Rings\ folder to be visible (at last on my WM6 TyTn). It think app shoud look for rings in \My Documents\, \My Documents\My Ringtones\ or maybe in custom defined folder?

Enhancements proposal:
- option to remove ring from group (to allow system global ringtone to be used)
- backup/restore. It will be helpful after OS upgrade because Outlook/ActiveSync ignores ringtone field in contact data. Simple text format of the file will be great i.e. to maually change ringtone location/name before restore.

Great app, good work on this.

I'm going to test instead of PhotoContacts (yes, i know about photos, but for me the most important thing is to assign different ringtones to different category).

Thanks.

This was a great little app - thank you loads!

I have developed the idea a stage further, inspired by this, and have made a new app called 'Tone Manager' which lets you do it "all in one sweep" if you see what I mean - basically, you assemble a list of categories / ringtones, order them by priority, and then it sweeps through your contacts and assigns ringtones.

Release thread is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=327254

Thanks again!

Great Start
V3Patel, Outstanding!! I've been going crazy looking for an app like this one.

Tried it on my herald with WM6 and worked. If you don't mind, I found two bugs that could help you improve:

1. For some reason it didn't creat the shortcut needed for it to appear on the programs folder. Easy solution though.
2. It does support the storage card, but doesn't tell you it does. What I did was hit the search button beside the folder option, tap on any of my storage card .mp3 ringtones and voila... storage card appears as an option.

Thanks
