Step 1 Download ringtone Download a free ringtone from the internet or use a snippet of a song or audio file already saved on your computer.
Make sure the song snippet is a small file–usually it’ll need to be less than 1 megabyte.
Step 2 Establish e-mail address Establish your cellphone’s MMS e-mail address, which is your ten digit phone number, including area code, followed by the MMS extension of your cellphone carrier.
If you’re still unsure of your MMS extension, simply send a picture message from your phone to your e-mail address. The phone’s full e-mail address will display in the header.
Step 3 Compose message Compose a message from your e-mail account and address it to your cellphone’s MMS e-mail address.
Step 4 Attach ringtone Browse your computer for the ringtone, which should be located in iTunes or your other audio, sound, or music files. Attach it to the e-mail and send it to your phone.
Step 5 Open text Open the message once it reaches your phone. Select Options from your phone’s menu and opt to save the file as a ringtone or, if that choice is not available, save as an audio or sound file. You can then save it as a ringtone. Then enjoy the dulcet tones emanating from your cell.
