This way you can change the default ringtone of Facetime which is by default Marimba which is also the default ringtone for voice calls as well. You will be able to preview the sound with a small playback before you can set it as ringtone for facetime, this way you can avoid the confusion whether you are getting a facetime call or a voice call.

You’re right. face time is not listed in settings for iPhone 5 using iOS 6 so I cannot change the ring tone. It can be done this way with the iPad 2
