If you don't get an answer here ... I didn't see the owner's manual up on the Verizon site yet, but it is on Samsung's site. Go to the Intensity III page on the site and scroll down to the bottom right.

I already have the Samsung Manual in paper and a searchable copy in a Word Doc.Is there a particular term that I shouls be looking for? Have been looking in the on line manual, but no luck.

Thanks, Ellen

Thank you. This procedure changes one contact at a time. I'm trying to set

up the phone so that all of my contacts have a ring that is different from

the ring that accompanies a call from a number not yet in my contact list.

My previous phone could be used that way. I apologize for my lack of

clarity.

I'm not sure if your new phone can do that. If you don't see any setting like that in the manual, maybe try Samsung's support site. On the phones I've had, it's always been one default ringtone, and then different ones if set on a contact-by-contact basis. Good luck.

Thank you for your help. I'm starting to agree that it probably can't be

done. I might just set my critical contacts to a different ring tone, using

the methods you posted.

I am also trying to set up my new Samsung Intensity III.

Your idea to set one ring tone for all personal contacts is great. I’ve never though of this.

I will play with my phone. Even if I have to do one by one, I must admit that it’s worth a try.

Thanks.Smiley Happy
