Usually there is the options in your contact app to customise. 

Launch the contacts app and look for something like edit or default ringtone. 

Tap onto this or something similar and then choose a ringtone of choice.

The music.file your trying maybe too long or the wrong file type. 

Can you try finding a tone on a site called zedge and download one and try set that as a ringtone.

This may sound like the stupidest question but when you select a ring tone in the edit contact area are you then pressing the tick in the top right hand corner to save the selection and not just pressing back or home?

It may sound an obvious thing but a friend of mine (ahem) did that for ages before realizing!

Hi @SimonWilding

 

Where mobile phones are concerned, there is never a stupid question.  

 

The tick is for when you are satisfied that everything is correct to save the selection.

Well I certainly felt stupid when I finally realised my changes weren't being saved!  :Cry_Laughing:
