How to Set Custom iPhone Ringtones

By KR Knowlin

The iPhone allows you to set custom ringtones for contacts in your phone book. Assign specific ringtones to any contact entry you want. This way, you will recognize callers by their distinctive ringtones. Customizing your contacts' ringtones will also help you distinguish your iPhone's ring in public. You can add, edit and remove assigned ringtones any time by editing the contact's ring options.

Step 5

Tap on any ringtone listed to select it.
