How do I download ringtones to my Samsung?

Answered by Douglas Hiatt

To download ringtones to your Samsung phone, you can follow these steps:

1. Open a web browser on your Samsung phone and search for websites that offer free ringtones. There are several websites available such as Zedge, Mobile9, and MyTinyPhone.

2. Once you find a website you like, browse through the categories or search for the specific ringtone you want.

3. When you find a ringtone you want to download, click on the download button or link associated with it. This will usually be an MP3 file.

4. After clicking the download button, you may be redirected to another page or asked to confirm the download. Follow the instructions provided on the website to proceed with the download.

5. Once the download is complete, you can usually find the downloaded file in your phone’s Downloads folder. You can access this folder through the file manager app on your Samsung phone.

6. In the file manager app, navigate to the Downloads folder and locate the downloaded ringtone file. Long-press on the file to select it, and then tap on the options menu (usually represented by three dots or lines) and choose the option to move or copy the file.

7. Select the desired location to save the ringtone. This can be the Ringtones folder or a specific folder you create for organizing your ringtones.

8. After moving or copying the file to the desired location, you can now set it as your ringtone. To do this, go to your phone’s Settings menu and search for the Sound or Sound & Vibration settings.

9. In the sound settings, look for the option to change the ringtone. Depending on your Samsung phone model and Android version, the exact location and wording may vary. Look for options such as “Ringtone,” “Phone ringtone,” or “Default ringtone.”

10. Once you find the ringtone settings, you should see a list of available ringtones, including the one you just downloaded. Select the downloaded ringtone from the list, and it will be set as your new ringtone.

It’s important to note that the steps provided may vary slightly depending on the model and Android version of your Samsung phone. However, the general process should be similar. Additionally, be cautious when downloading files from the internet and ensure you are using trusted websites to avoid any potential security risks.
