help with ringtones

Just got my Hero this last weekend and am loving it.. Problem is trying to figure out how to use ringtones for callers... I have set up a different ringtone for several of my friends, but when they call, it uses the default ringtone, not the one that is shown when I edit the contact. What am I doing wrong here?

Apparently 2.1 has changed the edit screen. There is nothing on my edit screen for setting ringtone. I have the ringtone on the contact screen. I have the ringtone set there, but when the person calls, it uses the default ringtone instead of the one I have on the contact screen.

Re: help with ringtones

This is for setting the default. I don't want to use default for people in my contact list, only for numbers I don't have in my contacts. I wanted to set up ringtones for my wife, my kids, people from work... Problem I'm having is I've got them set as different ringtones, but when any of them call, it uses the default ringtone, not the ringtone I have assigned on the contact screen.

Re: help with ringtones

Just a thought - but after you installed 2.1 did you shut off your phone and remove the battery. I know this has helped others with issues. Just a thought. I have assigned ringtones to contacts and just tried from my home to cell and it worked correctly.
