How to Assign a Ringtone to a Contact on a Nokia & Microsoft Lumia

Assign a Ringtone to a Contact on a Nokia/Microsoft Lumia

This tutorial will show you step by step how to assign (allocate) a ringtone to a specific contact on a Nokia or Microsoft Lumia Windows Phone 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile smartphone.

But first:

You can set a default ringtone for all of your contacts and you can also select a different ringing tone for every single person who's in your contacts list.

The advantage of assigning a custom calling tone to someone is that you will hear it when this person is calling you. This way you don't have to look on your phone to know who's calling you.

Now:

You probably don't want to enable a different ringtone for every single person who's in your contacts list, because this can be very time consuming, especially when you have a lot of people in your list.

If you don't want to waste a lot of time, then only assign ringtones to a few people who are close to you, like your mom, dad, some friends, girlfriend or boyfriend. This can be done in a few steps and I will show you how.

This method works on all Windows Phone 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 Mobile smartphones, such as the Nokia and Microsoft Lumia 435, 520, 530, 532, 535, 550, 620, 625, 630, 635, 638, 640, 650, 720, 730, 735, 830, 920, 925, 930, 950, 950 XL, 1020, 1320, 1520 and all other types.

And now:
