Can I customize ringtones and vibrate alerts for different contacts?

You can set custom vibrate alerts
If you want to differentiate between the different types of iPhone notification without using loud ringtones, you can do so with custom vibrate alerts. There are seven preset vibration alerts in total, from the basic “Alert” to the more interesting “Symphony”. Also, you can program your own by tapping a customized  “beat” pattern using the touchscreen.

You’ll find these options here:
