    - On Music Player.
    - Hold on the name of the File.
    - on the pop-menu select "Set as"
    - Now select to which one you want to assign the mp3 file.

    create a folder on your internal sd card called ringtones if its not there already, then just drop in all the mp3 music files you may want to select. They will now show up in your settings>sound>phone ringtone selections.

    Use the ringtones folder especially if you have ringtones you don't want to show up in your Media Player.

    You can't set custom ringtones for contacts that are only stored on your SIM card. I think that might be the problem.

    Does anyone know how to remove a ringtone from the ringtone list if set the way above?
    I don't see the original mp3 file being copied to any of the ringtones folders, but I want to remove it from the ringtones list...

    My new Galaxy SII phone arrived yesterday and I have not yet learned all the ins and outs. I've had an iPhone for three years so Android is new to me. However, I did find an easy way to do this if you have not yet learned how to add a folder or work in the root or even know what the root is...yet!

    Install Kies Air (it's in your apps) to connect to your wireless PC or laptop. Then open the app and follow instructions to go to the URL given. Once there, on the left, click on Ringtones. You'll see all the ringtones that come with the phone. You will also find a place where you can choose to "upload." I had saved the MP3 file to my desktop, so I went there, selected it, and clicked install. I then set it as the default ringtone while still in Kies Air.

    I then went to my phone and checked the ringtone list, it was there, and was set as the default.

    WOW...I could never do this on the iPhone. How cool is this system?

    @ rshereenmilner: all the basic info such as customized ringtones is in the user manual which is available online (or as a PDF download) to your computer. It is about 200 pages and is invaluable. It is searchable and there is a good index at the end. Try the link below:

    If that does not take you directly to the PDF then go to the link below and go down toward the end of the page at the link below, click on the download PDF tab, and proceed from there:

    Could anyone tell me how to set mp3 ringtone as my default ringtone? I went to setting > sound > phone ringtone and stuck there. I couldnt find my mp3 ringtone which I saved them in my separate "ringtone" file.
    But I can assign ringtone for each of my contact. :confused:
