View/print PDF file of ringtone instructions

Please note: Support beyond this document cannot be provided. Please consult your phone instruction manual if you have difficulty adding the ringtones.

These instructions are for adding ringtones to an iPhone or Android phone. For other devices consult your phone’s specific instructions. Ringtones for iPhone end with .m4r and ringtones for Android and most other phones end in .mp3 or mpga.

NOTE TO IPHONE/IPAD USERS: Apple doesn’t allow direct download of files to these devices. They may play, but to get them on your device you must download them to a PC or MAC, import them into iTunes and sync your device.


Adding ringtones to your iPhone:

1. Download the file to your PC or MAC.

2. Open iTunes, and from the “File” menu select “Add File to Library”. Then navigate to where you saved the files and add the files ending with .m4r to your iTunes Library. iTunes will automatically recognize them as ringtones and put them in the “Tones” section of your library.

3. Connect your iPhone and sync it with iTunes. This may be configured to happen automatically when you connect your iPhone, or you may have to initiate a manual sync. If you synchronize manually select the files you want to add to your iPhone from the “Tones” section of your library, which is in the top left section of the iTunes window.

4. Disconnect your iPhone and the ringtones will be available for use.


Adding ringtones to your Android Phone:

These instructions should work on most Android phones. If they don’t please consult your phone’s user manual.

Option 1:

1. Open the confirmation email on your phone.

2. Click on the download link and the file will be added to your music library.

3. Go to the default Android music player then touch and hold the ringtone file and a menu will appear where you can select “Set as Ringtone”. You can also select the “Menu” or “Settings” while it’s playing (or paused) which will bring up a list of options. Select the one that says “Set as Ringtone”.

Option 2:

1. Download the file to your PC or MAC.

2. Connect your phone to the computer where the extracted files are located.
