You need to make sure what music you want to use is listed as a ringtone.

Then if you're sure you have all the ringtones you want available.

1. Open your Contacts list.
2. Select the name of the contact to customize.
3. Touch the Edit button. Scroll down and select ringtone.
4. Choose the desired ringtone from the list. You will hear the ringtone.
5. Press the Save button in the upper right hand corner of the screen.
6. Now when that contact calls you will hear the new ringtone.

Thank you Animal. I believe, you are referring to the default ringtones.  What I want is one of my musics to be a ringtone.

Did you read the first line in my previous post?

You can assign custom ringtones on an iPhone, but it is more of a process to do than it is for an Android.

You are not able to choose a contact and then assign a song to that contact. A portion of the song has to be converted to a ringtone as a specific format, which is M4R file extension.

Here is another tutorial you can use to create the ringtone and then transfer it to your phone so it can used as a ringtone for a contact.

There are also free apps you can install on your iPhone which will create a ringtone from music on your phone.
Go to the app store and search for ringtone makers. I had success with one of them when I had my iPhone. Can't recall the name of the one I used. If the music is already on your phone, an app will be easier to use. You will be able to choose what part of the song you want to us. There may be a learning curve when you first start to use an app but it won't take long to figure it out.
