    setting personalized ringtone for a contact

    Hi,
    I am currently working on contacts for which i have to assign a ring tone for each one. Is it possible in J2ME to assign different ring tones for different contacts programmatically. If possible, please help me in this aspect.
    I searched a lot in this forum. But, nobody asked this question previously or if asked, nobody responded positively. If not, please tell me for what reasons it's not possible to access and assign ring tones for contacts in the address book.

    Thanks,
    G.RAJ

    As already stated in recent posts, JSR 75 PIM API specs do not define a RINGTONE field, but different phones could support it as an extended field. The only thing you can do is checking your target phone to see if such field is defined.

    Hi Jappit,
    Thanks for your reply. Can you provide a simple example of that kind for Series 40 edition phones. I am having a nokia 6233 handset. Otherwise, just give code sample for simply getting that property.

    Thanks,

    Given your PIMList instance, you can use its getSupportedFields() method, that will return an int[] containing all the supported fields (both standard and extended). Then, for each field, you can use the getFieldLabel(int field) method to look for your specific field.

    Anyway, fastest way is to check within manufacturer's specs for your specific handset. In your case (Nokia 6233), as far as I know, the RINGTONE field is not supported.
