Using a non-stock contact app will probably cause issues like that. Try assigning the ringtone using the stock contact app.

What ringtones are you trying to assign? Pre-loaded ones or custom?

I have just tried the following to successfully assign a custom ringtone to one of my contacts.

1. opened the particular contact and selected "edit"

2. selected "Additional info"

3. selected one of the custom ringtones that reside on my sd card in the directory /media/Ringtones

Tried and it worked. Could you try doing these steps?

Same thing... :s

By the way, the phone as an sms storage limit (999) is there a way of removing it?? It does not make much sense...

Thanks for your pacience!

EDIT: the custom ringtone on the contact itself seems to be locked, it doesnt change.... ahhhhh :@

Oh, I didn't realize you are storing numbers in your sim card. The whole advantage of android is in the fact that it is very well integrated with google apps. For example, your google gmail address book becomes your phone addressbook by default. Can you try adding one of your contacts in gmail and wait until it syncs with the phone. Then try assigning a different ringtone to it and see if you can get it to apply the change.

I know about the advantages of the account syncs but my girlfriend does not want to sync her contacts... The contacts are on the phone memory not on the sim card. Shouldnt that affect also the other notifications?

The strange thing is that it worked before and I realy dont know what changed...

Will try that though.

Any more ideias?
