I want a unique ringtone for my mother. Another one for my wife. I have the sound files on my phone and I can find/select them, even assign them to wife, mom, etc. But default ringtone continues to play when they call me. Caller-specific tones USED to work for me. Not anymore.

Hi Gary Greene, welcome to the free, consumer version of Google Voice (a telephony product) community forum!
 
You can only assign contact-specific ringtones if you are NOT using the VoIP feature of Google Voice.  You need to make sure you disable Prefer Wi-Fi and carrier data in your mobile Google Voice app.  This will cause the calls to ring through to your carrier line.  There are no options to set specific ringtones using the VoIP function of Google Voice.
 
I hope this answers your question!

Hello:
Welcome to the user-run Google Voice forum.
 
 
Ringtones are a function of your phone, not Google Voice.
 
 
Voice does give you the option of sending the caller's ID or Voice's to your phone.
You would have to use the first option.

I edited my previous post to say to disable Prefer Wi-Fi and carrier data, and enable Use carrier only.
 
I mis-posted previously.

Thank you Zanzibar. That seems to solve the problem.  I will continue to test and will reply back if problem reappears.

Hi Gary Greene,
 
Thanks for posting back.  I'm glad the solution is working for you.  You might want to leave feedback to the developers, letting them know of the desire to set contact specific ringtones in the app for when using VoIP.  No guarantees they'll add it, but at least they'd know it's desired by their users.
 
Be sure to let me know if anything else pops up, or you have further inquiries.
 
Would you be able to mark one of the replies as an answer to the question so the thread will show as closed?
 
Thanks, and Happy Memorial Day!
