    I just went from a IPhone 6 to a Samsung galaxy s7 today. The Samsung switch over thing worked ok but didn't transfer the ringtones I had in ITunes.
    I got the ringtones from Phonezoo But if I get on Phonezoo from my s7 it doesn't even show a place to down load the ringtones or to send to my phone.
    I called Verizon and ask what to do. They told me to download apps for ringtones from Google Play. I don't want to download 50 apps trying to find ringtones that maybe exclusive to Phonezoo. Can anybody help me?

    I'd never heard of Phonezoo, but I just went to its web site on my Android phone, and immediately saw ringtones available to listen to and/or download. What do you see when you go there?

    If you have a sound file (MP3, aac, ogg, probably others) just stick it in a folder called Ringtones in your internal storage and voilà, you're done. No need for apps of any sort.

    I can however easily imagine that an iPhone doesn't make it easy to get the sound file (I don't have one to test, but know they prefer to hide the filesystem from the user).

    Here's an unorthodox way I use that works when I'm having issues moving ringtones etc from one device to another without using a computer is to send it by Bluetooth from my device file manager under the share option or paste it to an email and send it to myself but open it up on the device I'm transferring it to. Then put the transfer information in the appropriate place after it's opened if it be music files , data all documents.
