Tones

  • Open Sound Profile and open menu
  • Tap on Edit Profiles
  • Select the profile you want to change the tones.
  • Expand the Ringtones section.
  • Activate the option ‘Allow this profile to modify ringtones‘.
  • Click on the Tone (please note there are 2 tone buttons. One for calls, the other one for the default notification).
  • A list with the available ringtones in your phone will be displayed. Choose the one you want.
  • Don’t forget to Save your changes.

As you can see in the screenshot, you can optionally copy these ringtones to the rest of the profiles.

Can I use a mp3 file?

You can use a mp3 file (or any other music file stored in your SD-Card or internal memory). Depending on the Android version you have or your device manufacturer, you may need a File Explorer Browser to get to it. Sound Profile recommends a free one called File Manager (Flashlight + Clock).

Here you have a video that easily shows how to set a ringtone with your favorite music file:

What happens if you change the notification ringtone but the tone doesn’t change?

If the tone assigned for the notifications doesn’t work please have this in mind: 

Sound Profile changes the DEFAULT NOTIFICATION sound, for example, let’s say that Sound Profile uses ‘ding’ as the default notification ringtone. Most apps uses their own ringtones, so your Text/Sms app sounds ‘dong’ and your email app sounds ‘dung’. Changing Sound Profile notification sound to ‘ding’ will not change your Text/Sms or email ringtones, because in those apps you have chosen those specific sounds.

If you want any specific app to use the DEFAULT NOTIFICATION sound then you need to edit the properties or settings of that app and select the ringtone ‘default ringtone‘ for it.

For example, if you want your Text/Sms app to sound as Sound Profile says then open your Text/Sms app, go to Settings, scroll down to Notification sound. On the list select ‘default ringtone‘. This way the app will use the one set by Sound Profile.

Many people find this useful, for example to have a serious ringtone for Text/Sms at work and a funnier one at home.

  1. Hello corcanoe,
    Sound Profile is not setting tone when using dual sims. As both sims don’t have the option “default ringtone”, so system set tones are playing. Please help.

  2. I don’t have this option in my app: “Allow this profile to modify ringstone”. I use specific ringstone for some apps and without this disabling option it doesn’t work. It will be update with adding this option or I should do something else?

    1. Hello Michael
      This is only available for fresh installations. If you want it, you just have to uninstall your current release and install it again. Sorry, you will loose your settings (but of course, Subscriptions stay)

  5. How can I set a profile using different ringtones for different contacts? I created a OFFICE profile but when activated it uses the same ringtone for all contacts even if each contact has a specific ringtone assigned

    1. Hello
      That is strange. Each contact should use its own custom ringtone. Please, send me your settings using the Contact Me option of the SoundProfile main menu. In that email tell me your issue so I can remember it (I receive many emails from many users).
      Tell me also the exact profile name you are using for these testings.
