    seems like it's a very common question and hopefully there's an easy answer.

    how do I add then select new ringtones?

    The manual is not helpful and my forum searches have failed.

    Thanks.

    Isn't there an option in the music player to "use this mp3 as ringtone"? then it's just a matter of putting the file onto the sd card, probably in the music folder.

    create a folder in the memory card called media, inside that create 2 folders, Notifications and Ringtones.

    Notifications - SMS ringtones
    Ringtones - incoming call ringtones

    put files in the folders.

    you can also create a folder called "alarms" inside the "media" folder for alarm clock

    It doesn't work for me on the LG Ally. I created the folders as you indicated, and copied a couple MP3 files to them. But I still can't see them in the list of Ringtone or Notification files.

    Aha! What wasn't mentioned is that I have to power down and restart the phone (reboot) to make them appear in the menus. Once I rebooted the Ally, I found the MP3 files within the menu selections. If I make anymore changes to the files (moving them around, adding more MP3 files) I have to reboot the phone to make those changes show up.

    I have uploaded MP3s onto my phone and chose to use some of them as ringtones. I then "trimmed" them and set them as ringtones for specific contacts. Problem is, they don't even last a day before returning to default ringtones! Not sure what the problem is. Any one else figure out how to fix this problem?
