    You can download an app from the Play Store like Ringo which will automate that process for you. Other apps in the Play Store will allow you to create your own ringtones and use them.

    Hi,
    You can create a folder named Ringtones in the root of your internal memory or external sd card and place your custom ringtones there, then set them up like any other stock ringtone.

    Good luck!

    I'm the one that asked the question - had to register to reply. Thanks - the reply from oamilcar was the one I went with. I installed Solid Explorer, found out the Ringtones directory was already there. I had previously sent myself a custom ringtone from my laptop, so I had to go looking for it. Found it in the downloads dirextory and used SE to move it.

    One would think that if these phones are so smart, that they would know when a 30 second ringtone is sent to the phone, it should go in a Ringtones directory and NOT the downloads directory - sheesh!!
