    I added 6 custom ringtones (all with m4r extension) via itunes, but can't seem to find them anywhere on my phone? I am a iPhone newbie. Can I get a little help....what am I missing? Thanks

    If you sync them correctly thru your itunes you can find all the ringtunes you added on;

    Settings > Sounds > Ringtone or Text Tone and it should be there with the same file name it was saved as.

    I added them with the m4r extension to my ringtones folder but they don't shoe up in my ringtone folder. I followed steps I found online to do it but can't figure out what I am doing wrong

    After you change the file extension from .m4a to .m4r delete the original .m4a file from iTunes. Then drag the new .m4r file from explorer into iTunes and it should show up in the ringtones section.

    Ok. It was downloaded from a website with ringtones optimized for iPhone. As far as I am aware the file extension was already m4r when I downloaded it. I will check again though

    following up what sting7k said. On your itunes make sure you see "Tones" under Library on the left, sometimes by default it's not shown.

    Secondly, when you plug in your iphone click on it and tab over to tones if you set it on sync manually, you might have to click on the ringtunes to add then sync.

    Settings>> Sounds>> scroll to what you want to change... tap the current selected tone - you then get a list of what's on your phone - scroll to the "Ringtones" section - any tones loaded via iTunes correctly will show up in the list under "Ringtones" above the stock ones.

    After much trouble, I finally got the ringtone I wanted onto itunes, into the tunes folder. It shows on itunes that it's on my phone, it's been synced, but when I go on my iphone to the ringtone folder it's not in there. :/
    Any suggestions?

    I have given up on that since iOS 6 my tones have disappeared. I sync the same way so I don't understand what happened.

    If JB, you should try Unlimtones

    I had the same problem and I realized when I was synchro.nizing my iPhone, the sound section wasn't selected so it was not synchronizing.
