The problem with iOS 7 not honoring custom ring tones for a few of my contacts. There were duplicate entries in my Contacts app. Of course, deleting the unwanted entries also deleted the the contacts I wanted to keep. I re-entered them on the iPhone and all seems well at the moment. I just need to wait to see if the custom tones will play when one of those contacts calls me (and the duplicates do not return).
