Having a dual SIM phone means getting calls on both SIMs and having to look at the screen to make sure which SIM is the call actually coming on.
If you are lazy like me you also must hate looking at the phone every time just to check out which SIM card is ringing because like me if you guys too have one SIM for personal communication and other for work related calls there are times when you might want to avoid all work related calls and it becomes too much hassle at times to keep picking up your phone every time to see which SIM are you getting the call on.
I have come across a feature with which we can set a different ringtone for each SIM which has turned out a boon to me and thought could help you guys too. Now I can just hear the ringtone and decide whether to answer the call or not.
I will walk you with detailed steps to get this done.

1. Go to settings, there are 2 ways to get to settings one by bringing down your notification pane and tapping on setting icon and other is the usual way from your app drawer as shown in below screen shots.

2. Once you are in settings, find Sound & Notification option under Device heading and tap on it.

3. Inside sounds and notification goto -> Phone Ringtone option as shown below.


4. Here you can see the current ringtone for both SIM 1 and SIM 2. As shown below both of them should have same ringtone.

5. Now lets set a different ringtone for SIM 1. Goto SIM 1 and tap onto phone ringtone as shown below in the screen shot.


6. Now it should show you the list of all the available ringtone, select one from the list when you select a ringtone it is shown by a selected radio button as shown in below screen shot.
Lastly click on OK.

7. Now you can see the SIM 1 ringtone has been changed refer below screenshot.


8. We need to follow the same process to select a ringtone for SIM 2. See the below screenshots if you need help with that.
