I hate the standard ringtone that comes with a desktop phone,  How do I change it or do I need to switch to another provider?

The ringtone is set on the phone locally. You can adjust it in the settings. I can't give you more details as you have provided barely any. What type of phone do you have? It would have come with instructions, or you can google the model to find a manual online.

Changing providers won't change your ringtone.

I have mine set to warble. It stands out and sounds nicer in my opinion. However, I don't know what options all phones have. If you have a VVX411, try warble.

each phone has a different set of tones. You'd have to cycle through and pick what sounds best to you.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Differentiating Ring Tones.

Our office has the Polycom 400 series. Can I set up so when someone calls the office it is one type of ringtone, and when we send a call into an individual office it is a different type of ringtone? I don't want to set up for individual contacts, just each person sitting at each desk can have a distinct ring tone different from the main line.

Hi Melody, sorry, at first your request seemed to be about changing the ringtones for each phone to be something different. What you're actually asking for is not yet possible. Please vote for it here

I would really like to have this same option!  It would be sooo much easier for us in my office.

Hello - has this change been addressed? Trying to configure our new phones so that when I receive a direct call I get a different ringtone as opposed to a call into our receptionist group?
