I think i got this figured out. First I made a mistake, when I get a message the personal ring tones do work proper for contacts. The reason they don't work for contacts phone call is because I don't have caller ID so the phone doesn't know who calling to apply the proper ring tone.

 

I don't think it has anything to do with the caller ID but everything to do with having them in your contacts list with the proper phone numbers and everything. If they call and the number is blocked or restricted or not in your contact list, it won't know. But if they are in there, you should be able to assign a ringtone. It's been a while since I was on 2.3.3 but I'm pretty sure that's the case. The caller ID comes from your contact list.

I've never heard of a cell phone service that doesn't automatically come with caller ID.
Make sure that each contact has the correct number for incoming calls. Placing a 1 (country code) in front of the number can sometimes mess with the system as well.

Also make sure you are saving the contact's profile after assigning each ringtone, it is the save button at the bottom of the screen.

      I want an Android phone but don't wanna shell out big bucks. I keep seeing commercials for the Boost Android phone, but is it the same thing as like, a Samsung Galaxy S? Should I even bother getting this phone? Will the data plan be expensive? Can I get apps?

      I bought the first iPhone 3G eons ago and I've been buying apps for it since day 1. My wife bought an Android and I love it however before I make the plunge I want to see if there is anyway I can get my games installed on a droid from my iphone.
      Any hacks out there?

      Before I upgraded to froyo, I had a clock that displayed on my phone to show me the time. Now that I updated, the clock is gone. Is there a free widget I can download that looks cool( preferably a digital clock)?
      Thanks!

      The date on my Epic 4g's lock screen is halfway cut off so I can never read what day it is. In order to get the date I have to go all the way into the calendar; very inconvenient. This may have happened with one of the many firmware updates I've been getting and it sucks. Anyone know how to fix this?
