Many of today’s cell phones come with built-in default ringtones that alert you to an incoming call. However, you can upload your own ringtones if you are looking for something more exciting than the generic tones. With MicroSD cards, you can upload a number of ringtones and save hard drive space on your cell phone.
Things You'll Need
- Cell phone
- USB cable
Plug the MicroSD card into the card slot on your cell phone. Connect your phone to the computer using the supplied USB cable.
Double-click "My Computer" on the desktop. You should see your cell phone listed as a portable hard drive. Double-click it.
Locate your ringtones from the location you have them on your computer and drag them into the portable hard drive window.
Click "Play" to preview the ringtone before downloading it to your computer. When you are satisfied with the ringtone, click "Get ringtone" or "Save to PC." When prompted, click "Save" to launch the file saving dialog box. Select the folder to save the ringtone in and click "Save" to download it on your computer. Repeat this process to download and save additional ringtones.
Drag the ringtones you downloaded to the portable hard drive window of your phone to upload them to the MicroSD card on your cell phone.
Disconnect your phone from the computer when you finish uploading the ringtones you want.
Tips & Warnings
- If you don't have ringtones already, try a free ringtone download website such as mytinyphone.com or myxer.com. These websites allow you to search for and download ringtones of different musical genres.
