Chapter 5. Managing Treo Contacts > Assign a Caller ID Ring Tone

Assign a Caller ID Ring Tone

Earlier in this chapter, you found out how to assign a picture to a contact so that it appears as a picture caller ID when the contact calls you. Although this feature is cool, an even more practical takeoff on the same feature involves caller ID ring tones. In other words, you assign a unique ring tone to a contact so that you quickly know who is calling just by recognizing the ring tone. Unfortunately, there isn't a contact field for setting a caller ID ring tone. Although this might seem like an oversight by the Treo designers, it is in all likelihood a deliberate design move.

To understand why there is no contact field for setting a unique ring tone, consider that you are unlikely to set a unique ring tone for every contact in the contact list. It's just not feasible to think that you'd remember that many different tones. Caller ID ring tones make more sense when applied to a handful of contacts who call you most often. Typically, they are the same contacts you call regularly. You can think of these contacts as your “favorites.” As it turns out, caller ID ring tones are assigned to favorites in the Phone application of your device.
