My wife's Samsung Captivate (AT&T's Galaxy S variant) phone is running CyanogenMod 7.1 (Android 2.3.x). Several times for various reasons her Google account was removed and had to be re-added. The problem is that each time her contacts were deleted from the phone, and in the process of being re-synced lost all customization, such as assigned ringtones. Apparently syncing to Google Contacts doesn't save the ringtone selection, probably for a good reason.

Is there a way to preserve this info so that when contacts are deleted and re-synced she doesn't have to re-associate each one with a ringtone all over again? Is there a way to do this via a 3rd-party app like Titanium Backup?

Ringtone Keeper is also an free alternative that looks like it does what you want.

After years of back-and-forth, Ringtone Keeper is by far the best app for saving ringtones. –  Chahk Feb 20 at 20:58

Mybackup does not backup these ringtone assignments.

Titanium backs this up but it seems to assign to the wrong people after restore (source).

Back My Tones Premium looks like does what you want!
