How To Set A Personal Ringtone To A Contact In Samsung (Android 10)

There may be times that you may find it convenient if a certain contact has its own unique ringtone for easier identification. Well, you can easily do that. This tutorial will show you how to set a personal ringtone to a particular contact in your Samsung device. 

If you don’t want to use one of the default ringtones, you can load a music file to your Samsung device and use it as a ringtone. To copy a music file from your PC to your Samsung, follow this post. 

You won’t be able to use downloaded music or songs from streaming apps like Spotify. Although downloaded files may be saved temporarily in your device, streaming services have limited terms and conditions that restrict songs from being used by a user for say, as a ringtone. If you intend on using a certain audio file or music as a personal ringtone, make sure that you download it as a separate music file to your Samsung device first.
