    I have downloaded an app designed for setting a part of a song as your ringtone. The song shows up in my phone's music folder, but it doesn't show up in the mp3 ringtone app. The app compiles a list entitled "All Available Music," but all that shows up on that list is my voicemails.

    There was a suggestion to: "Play the track you want to use on the default music player. Whilst playing hit the menu button and then choose set as ringtone." I tried that but it didn't work; the song still doesn't show up as a potential ringtone.

    Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi, make sure it is on the phone and not the SD card. Phil

    Not sure about the S5 but on my N5X it has to be in the folder called Ringtones in order to show up. I understand that this is (finally) changing with Oreo ..

    Hi, must admit all I have ever done top set a downloaded song as a ringtone is to play it in the standard audio player and then select options and "set as" then select ringtone. Phil
    Edited to add:- Try this Martin, go to "Settings", "Sounds and notifications", select "Ringtones" and at the bottom you will see "Add", select this and choose the track you want to add, then go to "Ringtones" and it should be there (Hopefully!!) Phil
