    add them to your contacts and assign them ringtones individually?

    Unfortunately, it's a business line and the calls are mostly diversely assorted customers and may never call again. I was just hoping to be able to use a ringtone for "any" calls that come in and are forwarded from my other phone. I am trying not to carry two phones when I leave the building.
    Thanks.............

    iPhone (or any phone for that matter) has no idea whether an incoming call was dialed directly or was forwarded via some intermediary number. Hence it is impossible to assign a distinct ringtone to forwarded calls.

    perhaps assign your main ringtone as the one you want for the forwarded/business calls and then assign the custom ringtones to your family and friends that are in your contacts.
