Setting a custom ringtone for a particular Contact Group is not allowed in iPhone. Even there isn’t any app available in the App Store for doing the tweak. But if you have a Jailbroken iPhone then there’s an app called GroupRinger. GroupRinger for iPhone is a newly launched Cydia Tweak by a developer named Thiago de Conti Arauj.
What GroupRinger does is allowing users to set a custom ringtone or SMS tone for any particular Contact Group. For example you have Contact Group named Work, which contains all those contacts of people from your workplace, now you can set any particular ringtone for all those contacts. If there is a call or message from any contact of that group then the ringtone would be the one you have set.
Features of GroupRinger for iPhone
- Set Custom Ringtone for Contact Group
- Edit and Manage Contact Groups
- Create new Contact Group
Not only GroupRinger allows you set a ringtone/SMS Tone for Contact Group, but you can also manage and edit contact groups using this Cydia tweak. GroupRinger Cydia tweak for iPhone is fully compatible with iOS 4 and iOS 5. The app is available for $0.99 and can be downloaded from Cydia Store using BigBoss repo. GroupRinger for iPhone however has a very big disadvantage which is, users cannot assign a custom ringtone for a single contact. But in my personal opinion, the number of groups will be much less than overall contacts. So it would be much easier to recognize any particular Contact Group with a ringtone. Wouldn’t it?
