Typically, your Galaxy S20 ringtones are all set to defaults. This means that your phone will play the default ringtone for all incoming calls. If you don’t want your phone to work this way, then you can always customize the settings and make necessary changes according to your preferences.

Once you’ve got everything set, you can go ahead and follow these subsequent procedures.
