    Welcome to iMore! Installing third party ringtones in iOS requires some additional effort and access to iTunes on OS X or PC. Zedge's iOS FAQ should help: http://www.zedge.net/ios/faq

    Wow really! Just for a ring tone or two? Well I'm on a work computer so don't think that the zedge deal will work for me. Any other ringtone apps that don't need a computer for ringtones? Coming from Windows it seems very odd .

    Welcome to iOS! LOL Its definitely more of a closed ecosystem than what you're used to. You can download ringtones from iTunes on your iPhone and not have to use a computer.

    Well I've tried to go with the zedge app but doesn't seem to be working . I have my phone plugged into computer and some how after 30 min figured out how to move the ringtone to iTunes and it shows the file on my device but can't seem to pull it up from phone this is crazy for one ringtone and still can't get it going!

    It's not about iOS not being able to do it, it's about Apple not wanting iOS to have that functionality. You take the good with the bad. In my opinion the positives far outweigh the negatives. Apple devices generally work very well for a reason: Apple maintains control of its hardware and its software.
