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.

What Android phone do you have? And please feel free to let me know if you have any other questions. I'm building up my Android street cred :)

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 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?

      A few days ago I got an email from my provider that my disksspace for my blog reached its limit. And when I asked him what caused this, he told me I have been posting full sized images, instead of resized ones. So, big lesson for me: "Start resizing before posting/blogging". On my laptop at home, and on my xp machine at work, this isnt a problem. But I am also a heavy "Wordpress for Android" user.
      So the question is, how do I resize an image to at least 50% of the original quality on my Android?

      I bought the Amazon Kindle Fire but I can't get it to connect to my computer. I don't see an option to enable USB debugging anywhere either.

      I use Office 2010 for making excellists I use for my work. Now I want to use those lists digital while im outdoors. Normally I print them out. But Ive got a Galaxy Tab and a iPad 1 from my boss to test stuff out. I loaded the checklist on both tablets, but the checkboxes ive put in the excel list dont show up anymore.
      Things ive tried:- Both tablets have VMWare installed. With this programm it's possible to use your desktop but on a tablet. With VMWare the checkboxes are visible and easy to use. But everytime you tick one, the 3g connection kicks in and I have to wait several seconds. So, it works, but not optimal. And there is no mouse so you have to do everything with gestures. Not very easy to do.
      On both tablets I have loaded the list in Polaris Office. Both times, no checkboxes. On my HTC One X, I loaded the list in Polaris, no checkboxes On both tablets and on my HTC One X I loaded the list in OfficeSuite Pro. No checkboxes. Anyone got any idea how to get checkboxes on a excel list to use on a tablet android or ios?
