    I recommend you contact apple, you should not have to purchase ringtones that you have already purchased, I'm sure apple support can let you know how to get them back

    This happened to me as well when I reset and restored my son's phone. He lost his favorite ringtone.

    Definitely contact Apple! I did this a couple of years ago... my purchased ringtones disappeared after an update, and so I foolishly bought it again, not once, but twice)! Turns out, this was an issue for many and they issued another update. My original ringtones reappeared, along with the other two I had purchased. UGH!


    My purchase ringtones are the Big Bang Paradoy, Hedwig's theme from Harry Potter, and the theme song from Modern Family.

    Don't buy ringtones - use this Applescript from Dougs Scripts to make a ringtone from any of your tracks you already have. So Simple.
