    How do you exactly do this? Do I just plugin my droid to my pc and goto my computer and find a "ringtone" folder or something?...or are there any apps to get free ring tones = )?

    You can copy the sound file (usually .mp3) and use dropbox, or email it to yourself, or use a wireless link through a file explorer, or through USB... place the file on your sd card in media/audio/ringtones.

    There are plenty of apps to do this. The one I hear mentioned most is Ringdroid - Android app on AppBrain but personally, I don't use it so i can't say how well it works.

    Any supported audio format file can be used as a ringtone. Simply copy it to your sd card into a folder called ringtones. (convention says media/audio/ringtones but the structure isn't necessary). If you can't find it, simply create one and the ringtone becomes available in the ringtone list.

    Oh, I almost forgot. You can get free ringtones from the Zedge app.
