Have you tried rebooting your phone?
Does it play the ringtone when you assign it?
Make sure that you only have 1 contact for that person/number. I you have more than 1, it will play default.

I know your original question was solved, but to address this question... If you press and hold the home and power button at the same time, it should go black, then show the Apple logo. This is a "hard reset" much like turning off your computer without properly shutting down. It's a good way to restart the phone when it otherwise seems stuck.
