Default Adding a ringtone to Samsung galaxy III

I purchased a ringtone that was sent as an attachment to my Samsung Galaxy III. When I save the attachment, the next screen asks me to check the box next to the ringtone. I then save it but I can't find it in the list of ringtones that came with the phone. A message does say it was saved to an SD card. Can anyone help me?

Greetings wjm,

I don't know if your still looking for an answer, but your going to have to do a little detective work.

The problem is most likely due to where the attachment got saved. If your using the default messenger, it's possible that the file got saved in the download directory of your memory card.

Use a file manager to look in that folder to see if the file is there. If it's there copy it to the folder called ringtones. The file should show up when you try to assign a ringtone. If not, try rebooting the phone.

If you are using a app to download the files, you will have to find out where the attachments get saved. Again once you know that, just copy the file into your ringtone folder, and you should be good to go.

Default Thanks!!!

TMML You are a GOD-SEND! I had the same problem. It was my 1st Smart phone and I'm an idiot when it comes to this stuff. I'm angry at how difficult they've made what should be a fun thing to do. I followed your instructions and found the ringtone sitting in the SD card file. I moved it into the ringtone file and it worked. Thanks!!! I am bookmarking this site!

FWIW I have a Motorola Razr and I use Tone Picker.

The downside is that you still need to know where the ringtone is (folder)

The upside is that it doesn't need to be in a specific place or format (I think). AS long as the phone can play it, you can make it your tone for that event.
