Adding custom ring tones for people in connect book

I have a Blackberry Curve 8330.....I do not have caller id on my phone....but thought I might be able to:

 

1.  create a custom voice note for the person saying their name....then save it

 

then some how in the address book select the person....and assign them a custom ring tone that I created using the voice note that I saved.......

 

 

does this make sense?????

 

I tried by highlighting their name

 

then using the menu button...going down on the menu and selecting add custom ring.....

 

selecting where the ring I created was....then add it......

 

something is not working right.....perhaps I am not locating the information on my blackberry correctly

 

can anyone help??

 

thanks

Re: Adding custom ring tones for people in connect book

Shelly, that should be possible. Did you save the voice note to the ringtone folder?

 

If not, look at Media > Menu > Explore and find the custom voicenote. Move it to the ringtone folder, and try selecting it again as the tone for that contact.

 

If you are still not able, it *could* be that the tone is required to be another media format, such as an mp3, in which case you would need to convert the voicenote file to an mp3 on your PC.

 

Good luck.
