When you are in the details of your contact, press the menu button gand select the ringtone option. It should let you select one.

Yes but this assigns the same ringtone to all my contacts. I want to be able to assign a specifict ringtone to a specific contact when receiving texts

Open contact list, tap on contact, select menu button, select set ringtone.

Open the app called "People", select the specific contact you want to set the ringtone for. When you see the contact info, tap the menu button (located in the upper right-hand corner) and select "Set ringtone".

I know that it will set ringtone for ALL contacts, I want to individualize each contact as I did with my galaxies 2 and my iPhone

These ARE the instructions how to set it individually. I've done it myself on the Nexus 4 and that is how to do it.

You never thought to mention this from the start? You will need an application like Zedge to set a specific ringtone to a contact. There isn't a way to do it by default that I'm aware of.

If you have Zedge, then you already know how to set it to a specific contact......

So I'm wondering what it is you actually need help with?

Try as I may, having ZEDGE does not allow me to assign specific ringtones/alerts to a specific contact.
If I may ask,? Is this site supported by Koodo? Are you a koodo employee?

Hi Hermel,

This site is supported by Koodo but is also mostly about customers helping customers :)

Sometimes things get lost in translation so I hope you can forgive the Community for that. :)

As for setting individual ringtones, third party texting apps such as GO sms or Handcent let you customize how you text people and that includes Individual ringtones for text. I personally use Handcent.

Good luck
