Frustrated about ringtones!
Hey, a few days ago I bought myself a Samsung GALAXY S 2 LTE and though I have fallen in love with the phone, I'm still very confused and equally frustrated over how to get ringtones. I know there is a way to get them onto the androids without buying them, it's that part that is giving me the issue.
Although there are probably many threads alike this one, I can not seem to find one with my specific problems. So, let me just give some information on what I have done with my phone in the past week.
-I downloaded a song from the store, and had a hard time getting it to show up in the list of default ringtones. So I googled a bit, came across a forum telling me to plug the android in, and make a custom folder called "ringtones" so I did that, and moved my downloaded file into that folder. The bought ringtone works fine now.
-In search of finding free ringtones, I downloaded one from Audiko. I downloaded the MP3 file, and tried dragging it into my ringtones folder. I went to settings, sounds, phone ringtone but now my phone ringtone tab is completely greyed out. I tried removing the mp3 file from the ringtones folder, I restarted my phone, and it's still completely greyed out.
My questions are:
-How do you guys get mp3 files to play as a ringtone on your galaxy S2?
-Why is the phone ringtones tab blanked out now, and how do I regain access to it?
Please note I am not very tech savvy, so as much detail and straight forward information as you can provide will be really helpful to me. Thank you.
