    I have been struggling with this for over an hour now. I want to make this song my ringtone instead of the ringtones which already come with the phone.

    If anybody on here could please provide me with detailed instructions on how I could do this, I'd be eternally grateful.

    Thank you for taking the time to read my post. A response would be tremendously appreciated!

    You have to somehow get the music files over to your computer. If you can't use a computer, use cloud storage (dropbox/box/copy/onedrive etc). Use a file manager (I use ES File Explorer, but any would work) to copy the music file over to your "Ringtones" folder (it should be under "Media" folder - create it if it is missing).

    If you download poweramp as your music player, there is an option in the settings to use the current playing song as your ringtone

    I agree with Brian... Just search for "Ringtone Maker" in the playstore and it will generate a ton of apps that allow you to cut/trim custom songs in any area throught out the song for a starting and ending point. This is nice if you want a specific line or chorus to set as your ring tone. Some are more user friendly and also allow you to listen to a longer ringtone playback... Like 40 - 50 seconds instead of 20 -25 seconds.
    Whorth looking through the available apps in then play store and choosing one that suits your needs.

    I used one for a while and it worked perfectly. I'll see if I can remember and post which Ring Tone maker app it was that I was using... It had a simple UI and was very easy to use and I think you'd like it.

    Hope this helps and Good Luck! :thumbup:
    If I can remember the name of that app I'll post it here for you!
