    Apologies if this appears a silly request, I used to have a HTC Desire and it was really pretty easy to set an mp3 as a ringtone. Is there anyway to do that with the S3? Thanks.

    Well on the evo and on the lte evo I returned as I am getting the sg3, I do the app call handedent which allows you to use mp3s as ring tones. It was pretty easy.

    You can also go into contacts and assign individual mp3s to each of your contacts.

    Another option, if you have dedicated ringtone files (you won't want to put your mp3 collection here), is to stick them in the Ringtones folder. They'll show up in the regular Settings > Sound > Ringtone list then.

    This option works for me , but the "Set As" does not show up for me .When I have an audio playing and click on Menu . The following pop up:
    1. Add to quick list
    2.Via Bluetooth
    3. Share music with
    4. Add to playlist
    5. Details
    6. Settings
    7. End

    I have S3 SGHT999V with Mobilicity in Canada ( similiar to T-mobile) I believe. Please help.

    You can use Fusion Music Player or Ringdroid

    if you want to add a bunch rather than going into the music player than holding the song than set as ringtone you can just make a Folder on either your internal SD or External SD and call the folder Ringtones now anything in this folder will display in your system ringtone list

    same goes for Notification sounds, make a folder called Notifications and than it will display in your system nofication sounds
