Can't assign ringtone per contact

Hi, I've tried everything including calling Verizon help and am having no luck. Does anyone know if it's even possible to assign ringtones to a certain phone number in your contacts list?  I have had no problem using a downloaded ringtone as my default ringtone, but there does not seem to be a way to assign one to a particular caller.

 

I should mention I am using the Blackberry Storm.

 

Help!  I'm really bummed out by this! 

 

Thanks.

Re: Can't assign ringtone per contact

Yes. Open the Address Book and then your contact you desire to have a specific ringtone > Edit > scroll down to CUSTOM RINGTONE/ALERTS > Phone, and set it there.

Re: Can't assign ringtone per contact

Oh my gosh, THANK YOU!  You are right.  The woman I spoke with at Verizon (for about 1/2 hour) did not know this.

 

I am so grateful to you - it worked.

 

Happy Holidays!!!

Re: Can't assign ringtone per contact

I have tried everything to assign a special ringer to my contacts and it is not working - only the master or normal ringtones ring . . . this is soooooooooo frustrating.  I have spent countless hours trying to figure it out - I have edited, saved, changed things and nothing works.
