Cannot Change The Ringtone For Calls Received on My Samsung Galaxy Victory...

I just cannot change the ringtone from "beep beep" to any other option!!!

Starting from the Main Menu on the home screen I go to Settings - Device-Sound - Ringtone and Notifications - Device. I see many ringtones listed including "Beep Beep" (which is what my phone does currently when a call comes in). I select one of the other ringtones by tapping it...the check box indicates its selection and finally I press "OK". The new ringtone I have selected now shows up as the selected ringtone. Next to test it out I call my cell from my landline and guess what...my cell alerts me of the call with a "beep beep" ringtone!!!

I do the whole procedure over selecting yet another ringtone and get the same result. I simply cannot change the damn ringtone from beep beep to any other ringtone!!

So...you bright people, who can tell me what I'm doing wrong here???

    From what you have say, you did not do anything wrong. Try power off and take out the battery. Put it back in and power up the phone. Go try to set your ringtone again, see if it work then. If not we try other ideals.

    there is no way to change it per caller...not yet. usually you can go to the contact list and change it per person...but it fails and you end up with the original ringtone..

    try as brain suggested...if this don't work...

    also make sure the phone is in sleep mode...I don't think it will ring with the screen open....

    if the above don't work, I know a few tricks that might...but one at a time... :)

    good luck

    Did you try a simple reboot?

    I tried both a simple reboot and a battery removal/reinsert boot. Same problem. Thanks for the thought though!!

    Joe...
    I just want to change the default ringtone from the current "beep beep" to one of the other listed ringtones provided in the sound settings section.

    I have another ideal, it seem that the setting from the phone is not effecting the messaging app. Go to the messaging app and open the side bar. Go to setting > easy configuration >tab Integrate with Android

    Messaging App
    Setting > Easy Configuration >tab "Integrate with Android"

    @‌ Brian McPherson
    Thanks for the reply!! I tried your suggestion, but I found that "Integrate with Android" was already checked. While I was in that settings area I also selected "User Interface" (where you can tweak certain settings. The first such item on the list was "Ringtone (default ringtone for SIP calls)". That was set to the "default ringtone" and I changed it to one of the other ringtones. It didn't have any effect, however, on my regular incoming default ringtone which remains the "beep beep" sound. Sigh... Besdies I'm not really knowing much about SIP calls anyway.

    Thanks again, though. People like you are very helpful to us amateurs!!

    Maybe you could try a third party ringtone app like Zedge. I am pretty sure they are in Google play store.
